Who said that the horsepower war was over? Well, whoever it was, he is wrong, as Mercedes-Benz just unveiled the C6 Edition 507. As the name suggest, this special C63 comes with 507hp (373kW), a 50hp increase over the previous model. The torque is also increased by 10Nm, reaching 610Nm which results in a 0-100km/h time of 4.2sec (for the coupe and sedan version, or 4.3sec for the estate) and an electronically limited top speed of 280km/h. The increased power also comes with AMG’s composite braking system featuring red calipers as standard.
The C63 Edition 507 comes with the familiar M156 naturally aspirated 6.3l V8 engine with the technology originating from the C63 Black Series, in the form of forged pistons, connecting rods and a lightweight crankshaft, which result in a weight reduction of 3kg. The hood with the two distinctive openings for heat expulsion also originate from the Black Series model, while the new light-alloy cross-spoke wheels with 235/35 tyres in the front and 255/30 in the back are exclusive to the Edition 507.
The C63 Edition 507 will be officially shown in the Geneva Motor Show, from March 5, 2013, with the sales releasing scheduled for April 8 and market launch in Germany for June 2013. The price is not yet announced, but it will include a voucher for attendance of a driver training session at the AMG Driving Academy.
