We've never heard a demon clear its throat, but we're pretty sure that the engineers at Mercedes-Benz have. How else could they create a menacing machine that produces the noises emanating from the 2012 C63 AMG Black Series coupe?

Road & Track snagged the keys to an example of the devilish new 510-horsepower superstar, and, fortunately for us, they brought along a camera. The following clip doesn't show smokey powerslides, meaty burnouts or high-speed passes. In fact, the C63 AMG isn't even moving. The Black Series coupe merely sits still and belches forth an evil tone that incites visions of what's in store once you move the shift lever into Drive. Click past the jump for the clip.

      I wished it was accelerating... on the spot revving is okay, but nothing beats the engine noise at load.

        Audi sounds less mechanical and soul-less than the mb, which is harsh and sounds like crap, but THIS is the song a V8 should sing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WB0cuYujW50

      I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, BidsOut.com

      Sounds menacing, but doesn't really fit a Mercedes IMO.

      And only yesterday there was a post where people were saying it's pointless to get anything besides a 4 cylinder. Well just listen to that beast. Sorry but no 4 cylinder is going to sound like that, although there are some nice sounding inline 4's admittedly.

      sounds like crap, from outside with no load. Inside, under acceleration, i'll be listening.

      God this is music to my ears! Between the 2012 CLS63 and this new C63 Black Series, it is making it harder and harder for me to keep my 2006 E55!!! The sound of this engine brings goosebumps to my body!!!
