2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 S Coupe vs 2018 Ford Shelby GT350 Fastback

Get a firsthand look as we compare the 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63 S Coupe vs 2018 Ford Shelby GT350 Fastback!

Don’t let the price tag fool you. At first glance, the Shelby seems like a better deal due to the fact it costs much less than the AMG C 63 S Coupe.
