Mercedes Benz AMG C63 by Markuzzi: A C63 on really illegal steroids.

The W204 Mercedes Benz AMG C63 is my on my wish list for most outrageous small car-big engine combo and if I could afford the actual purchase price, the maintenance, road tax and insurance may kill me afterwards. The reason why I love this car so much is that it has a sense of humour. I mean, the engineer who designed this car must have had such a fun time oversteering everywhere and shredding rubber everytime he stomps on the accelerator, or 'happy' pedal as I would call it. It is also a favourite of a few German tuners too, who somehow think that the stock arches, both front and back which are already a good deal wider than the stock C-Class Mercedes, isn't wide enough.

One of them is a tuner called Markuzzi who in the tuning fraternity could be considered as a wide arch expert. Here, Markuzzi have basically added more visible bulk to the 6.3liter V8 C63, especially at the rear wheel arch and some extra inches on the front too. This high fat, high carbohydrate diet has enabled the C63, which was already on a high protein weightlifter's diet to begin with, to become an incredible hulk of a C63. So much so that the car does not look pretty at all. I think its a body kit too much. It looks like a muscle car from the 1970s instead of a Mercedes AMG. Maybe the AMG here stands for “Ach! Mein Gott! It's awful!”

Awful it may be, but it is still going to cost an C63 owner about 11,900Euros for the bodykit (front and rear bumpers, side skirts, rear wheel arch extensions and wheels) including assembly and painting. Why would anyone want to part with that many Euros for something that makes an already overly muscular looking car into something so vulgar is a question that needs to be answered. Even that gaudy colour scheme and the choice of rims needs an answer too!
