    Ive heard plenty of C63's in the flesh and they really are something quite special. Ive also heard an E63 in the flesh which while still extremely nice - not a patch on the C.

    Sharing the same engine - albeit slight alterations - how does the SLS sound in comparison. Ive yet to hear one.

    I wonder if the E you heard was a biturbo :dk:

    My 6.2 NA is epic - easily as raucous as a C63.

    95% sure it was the n/a 6.2. Can't remember that it was new enough to be the tt and was certainly badged 6.3. Hmm.

    I have driven a couple and they are better than the C63 similar deep growl but much more pop bang. The Roadster is even more fun on the ears....being open and all that :)

    He'd have heard yours if he was underwater, with his fingers in his ears, on another continent :D.

    The W211 E63's aren't that loud, mines no where near as loud as a C63.

    At the formula 1 the medical car (C63 estate) sound throatier and deeper than the safety car which is a SLS.

    Really surprised me but I preferred the C63 noise when they did a flying lap or two.

    The SLS has plenty of snap, crackle and pop and was certainly more racey but the C63 wins for a beefier note.

    No idea if either of those F1 cars have any modifications to the exhaust though.
