    Power is something that you cannot have enough of and so Mercedes has added even more horsepower to the already fast C63 AMG. The C 63 AMG “Edition 507″ produces 507 hp, and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds in the guise of the Saloon and Coupé, and in 4.3 seconds as the Estate. As such it outperforms the 457 hp standard model by two tenths of a second, and the variants with the AMG Performance package which produce 487 hp by one tenth of a second each. The top speed of all variants is 280 km/h (electronically limited): this is because as standard the “Edition 507″ models are fitted with the AMG Driver’s package.

    In addition to an increase in the restriction imposed on the top speed, the package also includes a voucher for attendance of a driver training session at the AMG Driving Academy. The reduced mass inertia benefits the agility of the eight-cylinder M 156 naturally aspirated engine, which now features even higher levels of flexibility. The maximum torque has also increased by 10 Nm, jumping from 600 to 610 Nm at 5200 rpm. The titanium grey-painted variable intake manifold is a characteristic feature of the uprated V8 engine. A new engine control system rounds off the series of implemented powertrain measures.

    Externally, the C 63 AMG “Edition 507″ is characterised by a host of exclusive design features: most notable among these is the bonnet – it originates from the C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series. Two openings in the distinctive aluminium bonnet help with expelling engine heat. New AMG light-alloy cross-spoke wheels with tyres in sizes 235/35 R 19 (front) and 255/30 R 19 (rear) are another exclusive feature of the “Edition 507″.
    The AMG light-alloy wheels are produced using particularly lightweight forging technology and are available in two variants: painted in titanium grey with a high-sheen finish, or matt black with high-sheen rim flanges. AMG sports stripes in matt graphite grey above the side sill panels are yet another new feature of the exterior.

    The spoiler lip on the boot lid (Saloon and Coupé only), the exterior mirror housings as well as the surrounds on the radiator grille and daytime driving lights are all finished in high-gloss black. Darkened headlamps also add a distinctively sporty touch. Available as an optional extra exclusively for the C 63 AMG “Edition 507″ is the designo magno platinum paint finish.
    As standard, the C 63 AMG “Edition 507″ comes with an even more powerful AMG high-performance braking system featuring composite technology. The brake discs are ventilated and perforated all round and are decelerated by means of 6-piston aluminium fixed callipers on the front axle and 4-piston fixed callipers on the rear axle. The brake callipers are painted red all round.

    Inside the AMG Performance steering wheel in Alcantara with light-coloured contrasting stitching has a 12-o’clock marking. The selector lever of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission is finished in DINAMICA and features an AMG badge. The steering wheel and selector lever gaiter also have light-coloured contrasting stitching. In the AMG instrument cluster, red applications serve to visually differentiate this variant from the other C 63 AMG models.
    The C 63 AMG “Edition 507″ will have its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, which will be opening its doors from 5 March 2013. The model’s sales release is scheduled to begin on 8 April 2013, while the market launch in Germany will commence in June of this year.
