Mercedes C63 AMG Black vs Alpina B3 GT3 Track Drifting Video (EVO)

COMMENTS

Out of EVO's Car of the Year 2012 comparison tests comes this little clip featuring the C63 AMG Black Series versus the Alpina B3 GT3 on the track in some drifting action.

Quote:
There was obviously little hesitation in pairing the Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series and Alpina B3 GT3 together for a track battle. They are coupe versions of posh rep-car rivals, given a huge dose of extra punch as well as some DTM racer attitude thanks to large spoilers and carbon aerodynamic adornments. Oh, and they’re the same colour.

On paper, the Merc walks it. Its 6.2-litre V8 is twice the size of the Alpina’s (admittedly twin-turbocharged) 3-litre in-line six, endowing it with 510bhp and 457lb ft, figures that trump the B3’s 402bhp and 398lb ft. The C63’s 4.2sec sprint to 62mph is a mere 0.3sec swifter than its rival’s, however, while they both top out at 186mph.

Put two drift-loving road testers in their Alcantara-clad cabins, though, and send them on to a chilly, autumnal race circuit, and straight-line performance very quickly goes out the window. A strong contender for 2012’s most sideways video is below!

That was cool! Power is nothing without control! The M3, although it clearly has less power, is much more well balanced and controllable.

And before people start with "this is stupid, drifting is dumb, I'm 85 years old, blah blah blah" let me just say that i used to think that real drifting is just a waste of clutch life, tires, etc until I actually tried it with an open mind. Now I can honestly say it's the most fun you can have in a car. Period. It may not be the fastest way around a corner but you'll have the biggest smile on your face.
