The thundering new C 63 AMG Edition 507 will be available in the UK from July as a Saloon, Estate and Coupe packing an extra 50 hp and 10 Nm of torque over the standard C 63 AMG models.

Prices start from £66,960 OTR for the C 63 AMG Edition 507 Saloon, £68,160 for the Estate and £68,160 for the Coupe.

The extra horsepower and torque allows the Edition 507 to reach 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds (4.3 seconds for the Estate) and thanks to the AMG Drivers Package, which derestricts the top speed, powers on up to an electronically limited top speed of 174 mph.

The C 63 AMG Edition 507 also has greater style to match the substance.  It is instantly recognisable thanks to 19” AMG Cross-Spoke alloy wheels with a Titanium finish, a high performance composite brake system with red brake callipers and an AMG bonnet with power domes and air outlets finished in a high black gloss borrowed from the mighty C 63 AMG Black Series Coupe.

The high gloss black exterior mirrors, radiator grille and front apron complete the exterior finish along with an AMG Sports Stripe in matt graphite grey which is featured on the side of the car.  The Saloon also features an AMG boot lid spoiler.

Exclusivity is not only for the outside of the car.  On the inside the Edition 507 features designo Black Leather as standard or customers can choose between the optional designo Porcelain Leather with Black Dinamica and contrast stitching or the designo Black Leather with Black Dinamica as a no cost option.

The AMG Performance Steering Wheel is also fitted as standard and is complemented by Edition 507 badging on the dash and AMG high black gloss trim while the door panels and the emblem embossed gearshift lever are finished in Dinamica and the AMG instrument cluster features red accents.

Six colours are available for the Edition 507, Fire Opal, Polar White, Obsidian Black, Irdium Silver and the optional designo Magno Platinum (£3,660).

AMG Drivers Package

On top of all the exclusive styling and enhanced performance the addition of the AMG Drivers Package not only gives the driver an increased top speed of 174 mph, but also includes attendance at an AMG BASIC Training Power and Passion Event so the driver can learn how to get the most out of their own car.

The one and a half day course is held at one of five renowned racetracks in Germany, Bilster Berg Race Resort, Nurburgring GP, Hockenheimring, Sachsenring or Lausitzring and covers a theoretical and practical introduction into handing of the customer’s own C 63 AMG Edition 507 Saloon, Estate or Coupe at high speeds.

Hotel accommodation, catering, a Driver’s Dinner and technical support are all included.  Customers just have to cover the cost of getting to the circuit and any extra insurance costs required for track use.  Should customers not want to use their own car they can hire a car from AMG for a fee.
