The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe Black Series is a whole lotta car. Not only is the name a mouthful, but the 510-horsepower German rocket can be a handful too, well, in the wrong hands. This wouldn't be the first time we've seen techs or valets getting their kicks behind the wheel of a vehicle that doesn't belong to them, but it seems some employees at one Ottawa-area dealer didn't get the memo.

Our tipster claims that a couple rogue techs at a dealership called Star Motors (formerly Carling Motors) decided to take out one of the 30 existing Black Series in Canada for a joyride. While we agree that some test drives of performance cars should be spirited to find performance-related problems, it's pretty clear these guys just wanted some kicks behind the wheel of this $115,000+ Autobahn assassin.

For over eight minutes they negotiate the streets of Ottawa near the Hunt Club Road dealership, breaking all kinds of laws, risking property and injury in the process. The police would gladly impound this Black Series for some of these speeds, and MB enthusiasts would gladly slap these guys in the face for redlining the motor for so long.

Why any tech would post this on YouTube is beyond us, as they're are only asking to be fired. The Internet has moved in for some e-justice and MBWorld.com has been set ablaze with nasty comments on the matter. Not only did they identify the location of the dealership, they have also sent the video, the original of which was removed from YouTube but then re-uploaded by a forum member, to Mercedes-Benz Canada HQ and are hard at work trying to find the possible owner to show him what's been done to his car pre-delivery. Check out the video by scrolling down.

      For future reference, anyone doing this should make sure to drop various references like "the breaks are working correctly" and "engine accelerates without hesitation" so when it ends up on YouTube, it will look like an actual shakedown instead of a joyride.

      It is about respect for other people's property.

      What a couple of idiots. I'd be pissed if this was done to my brand new car.

      Geezus. Autoblog makes this read like these two numbnuts blew up the engine or something. They didn't do anything that car isn't designed for--hell, they didn't even drive it too hard.

      Are you kidding me? That's all? Not that I'd want guys taking my 130k car out for a cruise, but really? It didn't even seem like they got it into 3rd. The article made it seem like they were blowin donuts in the street and goin 100mph through neigborhoods.The previous posters on here are right. This test drive seemed like a pretty standard event. Not a over rediculous joy ride like autoblog led us to believe.

      Even though the car was comparatively babied here by these techs I think it is great that Mercedes is handling the matter with such authority, this kind of response to this type of thing is what will keep the customer coming back.
