Some lucky AMG customers in the United Kingdom will receive an early Christmas present in the form of the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Edition 507. The limited-edition C 63 AMG will be available in the UK from July and feature some significant upgrades, including under the bonnet.
We can start there, where the old trusted naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 sits. Mercedes-Benz is currently preparing for the arrival of the all-new C-Class, due in South Africa in 2014. Of course the car will come with a new version of the C 63 AMG, possibly with a turbo engine, in 2015. So this is probably the last instance where we will see this burping engine inside a Merc.
Maximum power has been upped from 336kW in the standard car, to 373kW (the 507 represents power output measured in PferdeStarke or PS) and 610Nm of torque. That’s the same amount of power as the previous-generation BMW M5 (5.0-litre V10 with SMG gearbox). Merc says the C 63 AMG Edition 507 will reach 0 – 100km/h in 4.2 seconds for the sedan and coupe, while the Estate does the same in 4.3 seconds. A top speed of 280km/h is possible.
The cars come with a lovely 19-inch alloy wheel with a Titanium finish, high gloss finish on the front end and side mirrors, red brake calipers, and others. The interior has, among others, black glossy trim, some special contrast stitching and a performance steering wheel.
