I've got the power! Oh, Oh OH OH! It takes a special car to evoke the thumping beat of Snap's 1990 pop hit "The Power". With a 451-horsepower V8 engine, seven-speed automatic transmission and an exquisitely balanced suspension, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is one such car. By offering performance that's both extreme and refined at a starting price of $54,625, Mercedes' latest AMG special should prove to be a strong contender in the increasingly competitive high-performance sedan category. Perhaps a side-by-side comparison with the BMW M3 and upcoming Cadillac CTS-V is in order.
