Chris Harris is having an affair with a Sweden and German, in the snow, sideways. Actually, Harris sets off to drive from Sweden to the UK but meets some snow and decides to have a bit of fun but not without spewing his silly antics and verbal subtleties when describing both the new Volvo S60 Polestar and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. You may find him hilarious or a bit serious, it all depends on what side of the automotive fence you are on. Either way, you will enjoy the latest Chris Harris On Cars video from the Drive network below!

Ever since lap times at the Nurburgring became a benchmark for a vehicle’s over-all performance, there has been a need to find a ‘benchmark’ track in the USA. Car and Driver, along with many other enthusiasts, think we already have such a track, the Virginia International Raceway (VIR).

Virginia International Raceway seems to be the ideal choice for testing a vehicle’s over-all performance dynamics. With the elevation changes, the Grand West Course’s 4.1 miles, 28 turns and proven effectiveness to challenge experienced race car drivers, VIR is the ideal home-grown Nurburgring. Car and Driver sets out to VIR for their Lightning Lap annual track torture test and brings us the official preview to the dueling test along with a run-down of the contenders. Enjoy the video below!

The world record holder for the longest drift no longer belongs to Vaughn Gittin Jr. or any other professional drifter for that matter; it belongs to Mauro Calo who recently set the record in a stock Benz C63 AMG.

Mauro chose the handling circuit at Mercedes-Benz World where he performed an uninterrupted drift for a total distance of 7,572 feet (2,308 meters), which equates to almost a mile and a half. Of course the only thing stopping him at this distance was the tire that gave away launching chunks of rubber into the air as Mauro claims his respect in the motorsport world.

Check out the video of the complete drift below.

I have never been a die-hard fan of Mercedes-Benz and I will possibly regret that statement when the readers of AutomotiveAddicts.com get a hold of the comment section below and tear me a new one. Maybe some of the readers will agree with me that over the past few years Benz vehicles seemed a bit… soft. Of course they have some serious horsepower numbers especially out of the AMG performance division but I would take a BMW any day over a Benz. Nevertheless, Benz aims to please everyone which is why they have introduced a new C-Class coupe. To top the C-Class line of cars, they push the envelope a bit far by shocking the automotive world with a C-Class AMG vehicle, the C63 AMG.

Sure, it was bound to happen; Benz had to stuff that big V8 under the bonnet of their newest little-bitty creation with two doors. Now the BMW M3 (E92) has someone to play with right next door and she is rather hot if you ask me. She is so hot that she can sprint to 62mph in 4.5 seconds. Now all we have to do is get those two in bed, I mean on track… together to see who really puts out. Check out the new Benz C63 AMG promotional videos below and tell us how you like the looks and sound of her!

More 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Images Surface 31
Posted by Larry in Automotive, featured, Mercedes Benz, Mercedes Benz C63 AMG, News on 01 31st, 2011

The new upcoming 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is poised to be an out-right beast. We already had a glimpse at previously leaked images of the 2012 C63 AMG from various automotive sources but now even more images have leaked out onto the internet.

The new revised C63 AMG (and C63 AMG wagon) features most notably a new aggressive grill, LED fog lights and reworked headlights. Underneath the refreshed styling lies the joy of the newest model, a 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8 engine with 451 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. Power will be directed to the rear wheels through a seven-speed ‘SpeedShift’ MCT transmission good for propelling the small form-factor Benz from 0 to 60mph in 4.6 seconds all while getting an average of 19.6 miles to the gallon.

A new AMG performance package (on top of the normal AMG offering) will be offered upping power output to 481 horsepower with other aggressive accents and seats to distinguish it from the ‘normal’ C63 AMG. Full details should be revealed at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show on the 2012 C63 AMG.
