2013 Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Edition 507 - Staggering Naturally Aspirated Power
Mercedes-Benz has presented the super powerful C 63 AMG Edition 507. As you may suggest, the number in the name of the model is the amount of horsepower generated by the massive engine. This is the most powerful C 63 AMG, ever created by the manufacturer. It has 50HP more than the original and accelerates to 100 km/h with two tenths of a second faster.
The C 63 AMG Edition 507 is powered by the well-known 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 with 507HP (373 kW) at 6,800RPM and 610Nm (452 lb-ft) of torque at 5,200RPM. 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 280 km/h (174 mph). Fuel consumption is 23.5 mpg on combined cycle. These figures are for the Coupe and Saloon models, you can check below the performance of the Estate.
"The C 63 AMG with the classic AMG 6.3-litre high-revving V8 naturally aspirated engine is one of the most popular AMG high-performance cars in the world. With the new C 63 AMG "Edition 507", we are offering our loyal customers an attractive model variant which boasts even higher performance and at the same time is visually exciting.", commented Ola Källenius, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The Edition 507 comes with a lot of exterior mods including C 63 AMG Coupé Black Series front bonnet, new AMG light-alloy cross-spoke wheels with tyres in sizes 235/35 R 19 (front) and 255/30 R 19 (rear), AMG sports stripes, spoiler lip on the boot lid, high-gloss black exterior mirror housings, radiator grille and daytime driving lights. Available as an optional extra exclusively for the C 63 AMG "Edition 507" is the designo Magno Platinum paint finish.
The decidedly sporty yet functional interior of the C 63 AMG is even more dynamic and exclusive in the case of the "Edition 507". Three different equipment and appointment variants are available to choose from: Porcelain designo leather/DINAMICA, Black designo leather/DINAMICA and Black designo leather. In the case of the designo leather/DINAMICA upholstery, light-coloured contrasting topstitching makes for an attractive highlight. 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 trim in high-gloss Black Piano Lacquer look and the "Edition 507" badge on the trim on the front passenger side round off the high-quality, exclusive interior.
