Reason’s To Buy a C63 

The mercedes C63 is one of the most powerful cars that was being produced by mercedes from around 2008.The Mercedes C63 was popular,due to the price because you can get supercar performance from a saloon which is a fraction of the price of a supercar.The competitor of the C63 being the BMW M3,the M3 has a 4.0l V8 engine,however Mercedes came out with a 6.2 l V8 engine for the C63 which suprised many people.In the earlier generation high powered Mercedes and BMW the focus was on huge naturally aspirated V8 engines now all modern cars are all turbo charged. The 6.2l engine produces 414bhp and goes from 0 to 62mph in 5.1 seconds.


Running cost’s

As you could guess the price of running such a high powered car will not be cheap.The average MPG of the 6.2l V8 is 13-14 MPG so you will need to fill up a few times a week. Another big spend will be the tyres, with all that power you can create a lot of smoke from the rear wheels which will shred through tyres and it is also advised that you change your tyres every 10,000 miles. If you are going fast you will need to stop so breaks are another thing in your mind. however they are not as expensive as you would think for an AMG product.Finally with the size of the engine it is also advised that you should change the oil every 3,000 miles.These are most of the cost’s that you should consider befroe buying a C63 however at the end of the day it is all worth it when you start the car up and hear the roar from the 4 exhaust’s at the rear of the car.


Which C63 to buy?

When it comes to purchasing a Mercedes C63 there is a few options to take into consideration. firstly being do you want a pre facelift model which was from 2008 up to 2011? or do you want a facelift model which started in 2011.If you are interested in a pre facelift model then expect a dated interior however you can pick up a pre facelift C63 for as little as £20,000.However if a more modern look,style and feel is your thing then the facelift model is deffinatly the car for you starting from around £30,000 for a high mileage second hand model. However you get a more modern and up to date interior and some cars for sale have better packages and performance stats.
