The 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG comes equipped with a raft of standard gear and offers a few cutting-edge options.

BusinessWeek reports that the base Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has "all sorts of standard gear: power everything, a sunroof, Sirius satellite radio, an AM/FM/CD player [as well as] leather seats." The "previous and awkward-to-use version of Mercedes' COMAND system" has been greatly simplified, according to Edmunds; the AMG Mercedes now features "physical dash buttons with a mouselike controller and a large LCD screen that pops out of the dash upon startup."

TheCarConnection.com notes some mixed reviews on the subject optional features. One thing is certain: You'll pay plenty for extras on the 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG. ConsumerGuide notes that these range from "mundane features like metallic paint ($710) and a CD changer ($450)" to more useful options such as the Tele Aid communications link ($450). At over $1,000, the Premium 2 package adds "bi-xenon headlamps, heated headlamp washers, and a power rear-window shade" to the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

Audiophiles who simply must have the latest and greatest stereo sound system in their AMG Mercedes will pay almost $3,000 extra for a CD changer, Harman-Kardon Logic 7 audio, and a voice-controlled navigation system with seven-inch power-retracting dashboard screen. Edmunds reports that the Multimedia Package transforms the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG "into a mobile sound studio -- and movie theater," with a built-in, 4GB hard drive and DVD capability (these only appear on the pop-up LCD screen when the vehicle is in park). This package also includes the "superb Logic 7 surround-sound system" and Bluetooth connectivity.

Conclusion

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has enough high-tech gadgets and conveniences to satisfy the most demanding technophile.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
