Cape Town - In the spirit of the festive season here's some holiday cheer we found on Facebook.

A video filmed by Musa Matebese captures the start-up of a Mercedes-AMG C63 S. The fastest C-Class yet, uses a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine and despite the forced-induction it sounds brutal, particularly on start-up. 

Rorty exhaust note 

As a small prank, Matebese asked his niece to stand at the rear of the car, the engine is then fired up and the little girl gets a massive fright. Her reaction is priceless and everything is done in good faith for a laugh. 

If that doesn't put a smile on your face, what will?
