19-Year Old Driving A Mercedes-AMG C 63 Clocked At 308 km/h In Ontario

This might be a first: Teen caught going 308km/h on an Ontario highway.

  • For our MPH friends, that’s 191 mph.

  • Incident took place on the QEW, in Ontario, not the Autobahn in Germany.

  • Car in question looks to be an early to mid-2010s Mercedes-AMG C 63.

Everyone, or nearly, has driven their cars beyond the posted speed limit – admit it. While traveling at 115 km/h or 120 km/h is technically illegal in most areas in Canada, they are accepted speeds. Going 150 km/h on most highways in the country is enough to not only get your license suspended and your car impounded but you will receive a hefty fine. This 19-year old was caught by a radar barrelling through traffic at an incredible 308 km/h.

The car in question is a Mercedes-AMG C 63, or Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG, from 2012 to the 2014 model year. This is an extremely potent 457-horsepower 6.2-litre V8 super-sport luxury car that most enthusiasts know and revere. There are in fact two states of factory tune to this car as, when equipped with the AMG Performance package, output rises 487-horsepower. The 0-100 km/h varies between 4.5 and 4.4 seconds, without or with the package, but one element does not change: Top speed. The C 63 AMG is electronically limited to 250 km/h.

At the end of this generation of the C 63 AMG, a 507 Edition was introduced. The 6.2-litre V8 now produced 507-horsepower however its top speed was governed at 176 mph, or 285 km/h. The specific car in question could be a 507 Edition as the rear spoiler and what look to be black alloy wheels are part of the package. This leads us to believe that the car was modified and the limiter removed.

The story goes that this 19-year old chap, along with his 19-year old buddy, took dad’s car out for a joyride. Apparently, it was the friend who was behind the wheel when the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG S was caught speeding at 308 km/h.

The car will now be impounded for seven days, the driver’s license suspended for an equal amount of time and the “son” will likely be grounded for a considerably longer period of time.
