Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Cabriolet

The full-fat V8 powered Mercedes C63 AMG Cabriolet sits at the top of the C-Class range for those who want the character, endless torque and wonderful sound of the bigger engine. The only negative point, beyond fuel-economy, is the extra weight up front. This really isn’t much of a problem though, as the straight line performance is breath-taking and in good conditions, the rear-wheel-drive chassis is great fun. The four-mode adaptive suspension can be tuned to suit your mood, ranging from Comfort to the hard-edged Sport-Plus.

There are clear but subtle styling modifications over the lesser C-Class models including the C43 AMG. These include bulging wheel arches, twin ridges running along the bonnet and unique bumper designs.

The twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 is down on capacity from the old AMG 6.3-litre but it lacks none of the punch. There is no noticeable turbo lag and the whole experience is exhilarating. It may be a heavy car but the big brakes and torque cover this well. Square up this car against its rivals and it might just edge into the lead. Compared to the BMW M4 Convertible, the C63 Cabriolet is a little less agile but more composed giving the driver confidence for fast road driving. It is also more arguably more attractive inside and out.
