Launched! 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507
Mercedes-Benz has uncovered a ramped-up special edition model positioned between the regular C63 AMG and its Black Series variant. The Edition 507 name basically says it all with the number representing the amount of horsepower on tap.
Visually, the C63 AMG Edition 507 comes with a few exclusive design features. The model used for the launch has been graced with designo Magno Platinum Matte paint. In contrast, high-gloss black finishing has been applied to items such as the side-view mirror casings, the grille and the lip spoiler. New AMG light-alloy forged wheels, available in titanium grey or matte black, are also exclusive to the Edition 507.
The 6.3-liter AMG V8 engine, mated to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission, uses most of the technologies found in the SLS AMG. Forged pistons, connecting rods and a lightweight crankshaft are to name a few. Acceleration from 0-100km/h occurs in a very quick 4.1 seconds, faster than the normal C63 model by three-tenths of a second. Top speed has also increased to 280km/h.
The interior is quite a sporty affair with the Alcantara-wrapped AMG Performance steering wheel, an instrument cluster with red trimmed dials and high-gloss black piano trim.
Available in the Summer of 2013, the Edition 507′s pricing has yet to be announced but expect news to break some time in March at the Geneva Motor Show.Explore posts in the same categories: Automotive, Launched! comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
