This amazing mansion, recently restored using the finest materials and excellent craftsmanship, is not visually impressive, but also boast quite a rich history, seeing as it is over a century old.

Even with this power upgrade, the C63 AMG boasts gas mileage of 28 mpg or better in European testing. One absence which has to be pointed out is that of 4Matic all-wheel drive, a
