Ducati 848 Evo vs Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe
Sure, it isn’t the full monty 1198SP, but with its 140-horsepower Testastretta L-twin, the 2011 Ducati 848 Evo probably packs more performance than most riders can use on the street. Or on the track, for that matter. For about £10,695 (US$), the 848 Evo is one hell of a way to get around.
Now, what if you had to pick a four-wheeled equivalent to the Evo? We’d say the brand-new Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe just might be that car. It’s 6.3-litre V8 engine produces 457bhp – enough to propel the car from zero to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h. Mercedes haven’t announced pricing yet but then, if you have to ask, you probably won’t be able to buy one anyway.
The video here has been produced by AMG, who had announced a marketing tie-up up with Ducati in November last year. Hot chick on a Ducati 848 Evo racing some dude who drives the new C63 AMG? It’s all a bit gratuitous, but we’re not complaining… :-D
