AMG C63 estate

Nearly went for one of these before I discovered the Alfa 145 QV.

The engine is supposed to be a peach, but the car itself looks bland ... and a little squashed.

One of the coolest cars ever.

Trick V6 and passive rear wheel steering. (well, a dynamic wheel geometry set-up really)
made it a hoot to drive.

And usable rear seats too.

What a coupe should be.


My fave type of sunroof too.

The rear hatch window glass that others would try and copy years later?

It did look gash without the spoiler though.

'cough.



The Interior is though. As with almost every Mazda up until a year-or-two ago.



when I bought mine back in '96 and took it to work for the 1st time it got nicknamed
"La Petite Monstre Rouge" and set the tone and expectation for my cars ever since: Flash !

Not my sort of thing, the V6 was good but not enough to make it cool.
