The internet is laughing at this AMG driver! The clip of the failed C 63 burnouts spread quickly. The 43-second video shows how the driver tries with all his might to let the rear wheels of the standard 510 hp C 63 S spin. Even after several unsuccessful attempts, he does not give up and revs up the V8 biturbo again and again while stationary. You can literally hear how the entire car defends itself against it. At 40 seconds then a bang, thick white smoke comes out of the left tailpipes, the engine of the C 63 S catches fire. The video ends abruptly. Fortunately, no one was injured, but the AMG’s four-liter V8 biturbo should now be junk. The driver has to put up with ridicule and malice on social media – and rightly so: after the first failed attempt at the latest, he could have let it go. This mistake is now costing him dearly. Nevertheless, the hatred in the comments is only partially justified: It can be read several times that the driver is probably forgot to turn off traction control and so the rear wheels couldn’t spin. However, whether traction control was actually switched on or off is only one question. Because: At the end of 2018 presented the C 63 Facelift, Mercedes-AMG has the operation of the Race start called Launch Control simplified. While the race start was activated by pulling both rocker switches and a subsequent confirmation in the on-board computer on the C 63 built up to 2018, the engineers made the process simpler for the facelift model. Here it is sufficient to simply switch to the corresponding driving mode (Sport, Sport + or Race) with the traction control switched off put your left foot on the brake and your right on the accelerator – and the race start is activated.
