Edition 507 bows before Geneva

Mercedes performance arm AMG has a few hot engines running biturbos, there is one unit that keeps the lovely growl of a naturally aspirated motor: the 6.2-liter V8.  This is the unit that powers the full SLS AMG line, so it recently went from 571 hp to 591 in the GT upgrade. and then another jump to 631 in Black Series form.  But in the race to put more cojones behind AMG#8217;s top machine, one car got left behind#8230;until now.

This same V8 is utilized by the AMG version of the Mercedes C-Class sedan, and today that finally breaks the 500 hp barrier with the unveiling of the C 63 AMG Edition 507.  As the name would suggest, this version uses the 6.2-liter motor from the normal C 63, but now it pumps out 507 hp.  With this new power, the top speed gets lifted from 155 mph to 174 mph.

This car is likely not much of a stretch for AMG.  The C 63 AMG in its basic form makes 451 hp, but they#8217;ve already have packaging in place that takes the forged pistons, connecting rods and crankshaft of the SLS to boost power to 481 hp.  This next evolution just seems to want to slam a the door on its German rivals (after all, this is info is coming out before the Geneva Motor Show where BMW is expected to show off the new M3).

Available on the international market as a coupe, sedan, or wagon, Edition 507 cars also get special touches like a hood that resembles the C 63 AMG Black Series.  This is likely no accident as this special edition car is likely a slightly more pedestrian version of the wild machine.

The limited edition car comes standard with special lightweight 19-inch wheels painted in black or silver.  The Edition 507 also has more stopping power thanks to larger composite brakes with six-piston aluminum calipers on the front and four-piston units at the rear.  This helps reduce unsprung weight and adds to this car#8217;s 4.2 second 1-100 kph (0-62 mph) performance #8212; about 0.3 better than the standard C 63.

According to Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG#8217;s management board, the Edition 507 was developed because, #8220;We are offering our loyal customers an attractive model variant which boasts even higher performance and at the same time is visually exciting.#8221;  So although there has been no pricing announced yet, this special edition AMG is beginning to sound like it comes with the kind of exclusivity reserved for only those with very deep pockets.  But hey, at least this car comes with a free trip to the AMG Driving Academy .
