If "fast" is being measured in 1/4 mile segments, then the list for Mercedes is very short; however if "fast" is being measured in "top speed" then it gets more interesting.

One measurement should include how long a vehicle can go flat out.

Like the car you gave as an example. 0-60 in 3.9 secs? Theres other vehicles with significantly less horsepower(naturally aspirated even) that can match, if not beat 3.9 secs.

I dont mean to bash Brabus or Mercedes, im just saying more hp isnt always better
The special Brabus models are more about top speed (and setting records ) which is where the power is needed than about 0-60 times.

Does the C63 come in a all wheel drive, that would be a fun thing to own.

The third version C-111 was a diesel powered version that broke 9 world speed records in the 70's. It was here in the states for a car show during the time I worked with MB. I was the foreman at the VPC at the time so I was able to see it personally, it was an exciting car.

If your stock or mildly modified slk32 does 0-80mph in under 4 seconds, I'll eat my own shoe.

Stock it does 0-60mph in about 4.8 seconds.

Giving you the benefit of the doubt, lets say it acceleration doesn't fall off, and just divide the 4.8 by 3. That gives us 1.6 seconds per 20mph. That would mean about 6.4 seconds to 80mph.

Mind sharing on what planet it is magically 2.5 seconds faster?
