last week, audi challenged fans to re-create its four-ring logo as part of the #fourringschallenge. with the call to action, it posted photos of the audi logo created with onions, drawings in the snow, and doughnuts to give some inspiration. mercedes-amg participated, too, and re-created its rival's logo by doing donuts in a c63 cabriolet.
the mercedes-amg c63 is known for its ability to get sideways, and we're glad amg is showing off the car's talents. it's based on the mercedes-benz c-class and powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter v-8 engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission with rear-wheel drive. the standard c63 produces 469 horsepower, while the c63 s is tuned to make 503 horsepower.
during our testing, the more powerful c63 s launched to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and blasted through the quarter-mile in 11.8 seconds at 122 mph. we achieved a 2:57.1 lap in a c63 s coupe at virginia international raceway (vir) in 2019 during our annual lightning lap test.
