There`s been often challenges that have put head-to-head magnificent models from both BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The latest video review comes from Car Advice and involves the gorgeous BMW M4 with Competition Package against the top notch predator Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe.
The video is trying to highlight the main characteristics that each model is coming with, also taking a look at their advanced aerodynamics and mechanics. Each one was properly driven and tested out by Chris Atkinson who then detailed each and gave the proper feedback. But in the end, it is up to you to decide which one is the best, if there is such thing as “THE” best.
Starting with the BMW M4 with Competition Package, the model comes with the standard 3.0-liter I6 twin-turbo engine but now modified to churn out 444 horsepower and 40 lb-ft of torque. With the launch control, Atkinson managed to pull a lap time of 00:54.380.
On the other side, the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe, which was designated a better car than the M4 by the same Car Advice, packs a higher 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, with 503 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque, which practically makes it the main winner of our track test. However, with traction control in Race mode, it managed a lap time of 00:55.080, giving the M4 a slight advantage ahead of it. The car oversteered during corners and that cost Atkinson some a couple of tenths.
Even so, each model comes with the latest driving capabilities, dynamics and stability, offering real shows both on the track as well as on straight line. Enjoy the video put together by Car Advice!
