Mercedes-Benz Introduces An Even More Aggressive C63 AMG

MONTVALE,  NJ - The C63 AMG models are becoming  even more aggressive with the addition of a newly  developed "Edition 507". The output of the AMG 6.3 liter V8 engine has been increased  by 56 hp, bringing the output to 507 hp with 450 lb.-ft. of torque. The model year 2014 C63 AMG "Edition 507" uses  much of the same technology as the SLS AMG: the eight-cylinder naturally aspirated engine features forged pistons, connecting rods and a lightweight  crankshaft as seen on the super sports car. An AMG high-performance compound construction braking system  with red brake calipers  is fitted as standard. The C63 AMG "Edition 507" will be available in the Summer of 2013 and is designed to appeal to ambitious  drivers who take pleasure in best-in-class technology as well as exclusive design and sporty handling.

The C63 AMG "Edition 507" coupe and sedan produces  507 hp and accelerates from 0-60 in 4.1 seconds. This new model outperforms  the existing 451 hp C63 model by three-tenths of a second, and the variants  with the AMG Development Package which produce 481 hp by two-tenths of a second. In addition to an increase  in top speed to 174 mph, the "Edition 507" also includes a voucher for a driver training session at the AMG Driving Academy.

According to Ola Källenius, Chairman of the Board of Management  of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: "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."
