We see the driver of a Mercedes-AMG C63 turn a corner and punch the gas a bit too fast. It then spins out of control, skids wildly and crashes into a tree in a median. Watch the event unfold in the video below.

The clip was posted to TikTok by @cars_nationtv, and this unfortunate event reminds us to drive these powerful cars with a bit more caution than was exhibited here. It also gives us a chance to understand a little more about the machinery involved with this vehicle.
"The most important aspect of this sports sedan is what it keeps inside its hood," writes HotCars. "Mercedes-AMG has equipped this car with its exclusive Formula-1 tech and it throws out massive power to meet any guilty pleasures. On top of that, AMG has installed its newest offering with loads of performance features to rule the tracks."
"The redesigned M139l 2.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-4 engine is the first series-production engine to carry an electric gas turbocharger, a technology derived from the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team to deliver higher torque at lower revs and eliminate lags that translate to optimized acceleration," the article continues. "Hence, this unit produces a massive 469 horsepower and 402 pound-feet of torque, which means Mercedes-AMG breaks its record as the most powerful four-cylinder engine to date."
We post videos such as these as part of our coverage because we hope there are specific behaviors drivers can learn and implement to help make our roads safer for all of us.
