Different from the C43 AMG `97, to buy a C43 AMG today is rational choice. Costing 49,46% less when compared to the  C63 S AMG, is, basically, giving up the optional carbon ceramic brakes and the V8-141 hp, to the detriment of the V6-engine and maintenance costs, e.g. insurance costs and fuel – which is going up in 2018, now the average is 144.2.  

To sum up the C43 buyers don’t have to worry so much about performance numbers, however isn’t the case of C63 S clients. Because the S version is more focus, aim to kill the BMW M5, however it will lose the essence when Merc. launch the Black Series 63.
