EVO magazine decided to pit these two V8 powered and rear wheel drive coupes against each other in a 1000 meter drag race or 1 kilometer. The Mustang beats the C63 fairly easily, as it should, but the C63 hangs in well. email@example.com through the kilometer for the C63 AMG versus firstname.lastname@example.org for the Mustang. This disparity would be greater if EVO launched the Mustang better.
It would have been nice to see EVO use a P31 optionally equipped C63 AMG which has more power or a Black Series to show a more aggressively tuned M156 V8 based C-Class AMG in action versus the GT500. Regardless, considering the huge power disparity on paper and no force induction on the AMG, the C63 fared well.
