With a big 6.2-liter V-8 engine mounted up front, and drive sent strictly to the rear wheels, we can think of few better cars than the 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe to go drifting in--except perhaps the even more extreme Black Series version.

It looks like Mercedes-Benz thinks the same, as the automaker has just released a stunning video of its new C63 AMG Coupe performing a figure-eight drift around two C63 AMG Sedans. Sitting behind the wheel is Greg Tracy, a professional stunt driver, so we certainly wouldn’t recommend you try this at home.

The idea behind the video was actually requested by a fan on Mercedes’ own Facebook page when posed with the question of what they’d like to see performed on the set of the automaker’s latest commercial.

Enjoy the video and then click here for full details on the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe, and here for our first drive report on the car.
