Mercedes-AMG C63 S Driver Runs Out Of Talent And Into A Tree

No, your eyes do not deceive you. This really isn’t a four-door Mustang, but rather a much-more expensive German sports sedan in flagship spec. And yet, its driver did their best to behave as if the car had ‘GT’ and ‘5.0’ badges on it, instead of ‘AMG’, ‘C63 S’ and ‘V8 Biturbo’ lettering.

According to the description of the video, the incident took place earlier this week in Rotterdam, Netherlands during an event called 100% Autolive, held at a local convention center.

Actually, the car was just leaving the event when its driver decided to drift their way into that corner, in what was likely an attempt to show off for the cameras. Unfortunately, they failed to countersteer a second time (at least not in time), allowing the rear end of the super sports sedan to kick out violently and spin the C63 around, directly into a tree.

As you can see, that was quite a hit the car took and we’d be surprised if the side airbags didn’t deploy, or if the chassis didn’t suffer any structural damage. You can also hear a loud thumping noise when the right-rear wheel hits the curb, a split second before the car smashes into the tree.

We’re also guessing that the driver disconnected some of the car’s electronics in order to perform that initial slide, which is precisely how you can get in trouble when dealing with this much power.

The W205 Mercedes-AMG C63 S is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine, producing 503 HP (510 PS) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque. That’s a lot of pulling power for just one axle, especially for somebody who isn’t a professional, or at least very experienced behind the wheel.

In the end, let’s just call this for what it is – a very expensive “lesson learned”.

    In a general manner I do not wish or like when people damage or destroy their property but in those cases, I’m kinda glad they do.
    They try to show off without the skills or the conditions to do it safely and thus they lose a lot of money for it.

  • wait a minute

    but it looked cool for the first power slide

  • robotlogic

    I hope this talentless Clown knows he just bought a totaled C63, insurance doesn’t cover driving like an idiot.

  • Dredd2

    i guess that he isnt a “talent” just an idiot rich.

    • brn

      I’d like to be an idiot rich.

  • Mr. EP9

    You’re assuming the driver had talent. He was just being an idiot and instantly regretted it.

    hahahahahaha….what a maroon!

  • Alberto Barrales

    Does this car have a Ford Mustang drivetrain?

  • benT

    Thanks Giving must be approaching – there’s so many more turkeys on the road at present.

  • Quinton

    I’m guessing the driver didn’t have “drift mode” engaged because I don’t think the car would’ve tried so hard to snap itself back straight if it were using RWD only.
