    • BenzBoost inside source reveals the W204 C63 Black Series Coupe will come to the United States + more details and pictures

      Remember that source we quoted who revealed to us that the C63 Black Series would get the M156 V8? You know, over a month before anyone else got this information? Well, this same source told us the car was a given for the United States. Additionally, the car will be debuting new super sticky Dunlop tires and the motor will share some SLS similarities namely it looks like the internals. Considering the track record of this inside source thus far we are not going to doubt them this time and any worries people had of the car only going to Canada or not coming at all should be dismissed.

        I would have a hard time spending this kind of loot on a this car. Considering what the new GT-R can do. 3.1sec 0-60 and 11.1 1/4 mile out of the box. Regardless of the great styling of the C63BS. I think the people in the market for this car will also be considering the GTR on their short list. Could be a tough sell for for the dealerships. I think the name plate of Mercedes will only get salesman so far in convincing buyers that this is the car to get. Thats if they are also considering the GTR.

        It would get me far enough to consider it over the GTR.

        Looks good, but with today's cars (that are in this price range) being 11.7 seconds or faster stock, this car should've had 550+ hp to give it a chance.

        I would choose this car over a bunch of cars in the 100k area. However with Nissan bringing back launch control for 2012 and the awesome performance numbers. I would at least test drive both. For those who enjoy watching Tog Gear UK. Its kind of hard to over look how many cars the new GTR spanked on their track. One thing is for sure, I cant wait until the they test the C63BS.Click here to enlarge

        I thought it was a joke, people who spend $100K for this must be really blind.

        It will sell. The Black Series cars have never been good values or really held their values all that well. SL65 Black Series for example.

        As excited as I am about this car, I would have to go with the GT-R for the drive and power train. The versatility of the TTV6 + AWD is a no-brainer for me. Of course, if I had the money, I'd just buy both :-)

        This thing is beautiful. I dont care how much I dont care what it can do. It's so appealing to the eye and I love it. I'm making this my desktop image.

        The track package on the white C63 Black is amazing.
