2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Sedan

Codename: C-Note

Aw, look at the cute little Baby Benz. Quickly, before you can't see it through the thick billows of tire smoke. Lurking under the hood of the C63 AMG compact car - that's how the EPA classifies it - lies a monstrous 6.3-liter V8 churning out up to 481 horsepower. But unlike its rawer rival, the BMW M3, the C63 goes about its day with the genteel manners of a nice little luxury car.

Starting price: About $58,000
Engine: 6.2-liter V8
Output: 451 horsepower, 443 pound-feet of torque
Top speed: 155 mph
0-60 mph: 4.4 seconds
Cargo capacity (rear seat down/up): 37.1/12.4 cubic feet
