The United States of America has always been home to the muscle car. And with the latest generation of muscle cars recently being released by firms such as Ford and Chevrolet, this heritage is set to continue, but that doesn’t mean other countries can’t get into the action.
Germany also has quite a proud list of what some would call ‘European muscle cars’ in the form of the BMW M3, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and the Audi RS5, but can these compete with the pure straight line performance American muscle is known for?
Well in a recent EVO video published on YouTube, the latest Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is quite the competitor for the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 even though it’s significantly underpowered. In fact, the C63 AMG produces just 487hp while the Mustang pumps out 662hp, so one would think the Mustang should breeze to victory straight off the line.
We won’t ruin the result for you, but you may be surprised how close the first half of the race is!
