Mercedes-Benz introduced today the C63 AMG Edition 507, a special version of its sports car. Set to make its debut in March at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, the new C63 AMG Edition 507 is powered by the 6.3-liter V8 engine, but this time the output was increased by 50 hp, to an impressive 507 hp. This means that the C63 AMG Edition 507 is with 10 hp less powerful than the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series.
The new C63 AMG Edition 507 will be available as a Saloon, Coupe and Estate. The Saloon and Coupe versions are able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds, while Estates hits the same speed in 4.3 seconds. As such it outperforms the 336 kW (457 hp) standard model by two tenths of a second, and the variants with the AMG Performance package which produce 358 kW(487 hp) by one tenth of a second each.
Moreover, the Edition 507 models have a top speed electronically limited to 280 km/h or 174 mph. According to the official press release, the increased power comes courtesy of the modified inner workings of the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine: the forged pistons adopted from the SLS AMG, together with new connecting rods and a lightweight crankshaft, translate into a weight saving of three kilogrammes. Regarding the design, the C 63 AMG Edition 507 received the same bonnet from the C 63 AMG Black Series.
Furthermore, the Edition 507 received the exclusive AMG light-alloy cross-spoke wheels with tyres in sizes 235/35 R 19 (front) and 255/30 R 19 (rear). The alloy wheels 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 C63 AMG Edition 507 (Coupe and Saloon versions) also features a spoiler lip on the boot lid, while the exterior mirror housings as well as the surrounds on the radiator grille and daytime driving lights are all finished in high-gloss black. The headlamps were also darkened. As an option, the manufacturer offers the C 63 AMG "Edition 507" is the designo magno platinum paint finish.
