Buyers wanting a little more power from a standard Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG now have the all-new Edition 507 to lust after. As its name suggests, this new model features a more powerful 507-horsepower AMG V8, and it also gets plenty of performance and styling upgrades as well. Unlike the Black Series, the 2014 C63 AMG Edition 507 will be offered in both sedan and coupe body styles when it goes on sale this summer; based on the images, it appears that European customers will also be able to enjoy the Edition 507 in extra-tasty wagon flavor.

Mercedes-Benz squeezed more power from the C63's sublime 6.2-liter V8 with many of the same ideas used in the SLS AMG including forged pistons, new connecting rods and lighter crankshaft, which also help to drop more than six pounds from the engine's overall weight. Along with the new internal components, the Edition 507 also gets a remapped engine controller helping the mill put out the 507 hp and 450 pound-feet of torque (the standard C63 AMG is rated at 451 hp and 443 lb-ft). This new model also comes standard with upgraded brakes consisting of 14.2-inch, two-piece front rotors to go with six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers, all painted red.

Adding to the visual aspect of the C63 AMG, the Edition 507 gets stylish five-spoke 19-inch alloy wheels (available in a high-sheen titanium gray or matte black), a vented hood carried over from the Black Series, AMG stripes on the rocker panels and gloss black accents on the grille, rear spoiler and mirrors. Inside, the exclusive package also adds a sport steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara, red accents in the gauge cluster and lots of high-gloss piano black accents throughout the cabin. An "Edition 507" badge is mounted on the passenger side of the instrument panel, and finishes off the unique interior.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 will make its debut in March at the Geneva Motor Show, but until then, check out the gallery of images along with the official press release posted below. The price for the car has not been announced, but it will include a a voucher for the owner to attend the AMG Driving Academy.

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 constuction 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."

C63 AMG "Edition 507" featuring technology from the SLS AMG

The increase in power output to 507 hp at 6800 rpm comes courtesy of the modified inner workings of the AMG 6.3-liter V8 engine. The forged pistons adopted from the SLS AMG, together with new connecting rods and a lightweight crankshaft, translate into a weight saving of 6.6 lbs. The reduction of rotational mass inertia improves the agility of the eight-cylinder M156 naturally aspirated engine. The maximum torque has also increased by 7 lb.-ft., jumping from 443 lb.-ft. to 450 lb.-ft. at 5200 rpm. The titanium grey-painted variable intake manifold is a characteristic feature of the uprated V8 engine. A new engine control system rounds off the series of implemented powertrain measures.

The exterior of the C63 AMG "Edition 507" is characterized by exclusive new design features. Most notable of the features is the hood – it originates from the C63 AMG Coupe Black Series. Two openings in the distinctive aluminium hood help with expelling engine heat. Newly designed AMG light-alloy forged wheels with 235/35 R 19 front tires and 255/30 R 19 rear tires are another exclusive feature of the "Edition 507". The AMG light-alloy wheels are produced using lightweight forging technology and are available in two variants: titanium grey with a high-sheen finish, or matte black with highsheen rim flanges. An AMG sports stripe applique in matte graphite grey have been located above the rocker panels and are yet another new feature of the exterior.

The spoiler lip on the trunk lid, the exterior mirror housings as well as the surrounds on the radiator grille and daytime running lights are all finished in high-gloss black. Available as an option for the C63 AMG "Edition 507" is an exclusive designo magno platinum matte finish paint.

AMG high-performance braking system featuring compound technology

As standard, the C63 AMG "Edition 507" comes with an even more powerful AMG high-performance braking system featuring compound construction technology. The front axle makes use of compound brake discs measuring 14.2 in. x 1.4 in. The advantages of the compound design include higher fatigue strength and lower warping characteristics. In addition, compound construction discs are lighter in weight and the reduced unsprung masses improve the response of the spring/damping elements.

With compound construction, the brake discs are connected to an aluminium bowl via eight cast bracket arms. The brake discs are ventilated and perforated all around and are decelerated by means of 6-piston aluminium fixed calipers on the front axle and 4-piston fixed calipers on the rear axle. The brake callipers are painted red as standard fitment.

"Edition 507" interior: even more dynamic and exclusive

The sporty yet functional interior of the C63 AMG is even more dynamic and exclusive in the case of the "Edition 507". Three different equipment and options 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-colored contrast stitching makes for an attractive highlight. The AMG Performance steering wheel in Alcantara® with light-colored contrasting stitching has a 12-o'clock marking. The gear selector lever of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission is finished in DINAMICA and features an AMG badge. The steering wheel and gear selector lever gaiter also have light-colored contrast stitching.

In the AMG instrument cluster, red applications to the dials serve to visually differentiate this variant from the other C63 AMG models. The trim is done in high-gloss black piano lacquer and the "Edition 507" badge on the trim on the front passenger side round off the high-quality, exclusive interior.

Optional extras include:
- AMG illuminated door rocker panels
- AMG rear axle locking differential
- AMG 5-spoke light-alloy forged wheels, painted in titanium grey and with a high-sheen finish, with tires in sizes 235/40 R 18 (front) and 255/35 R 18 (rear)
- AMG Performance Media
- AMG carbon-fiber/high gloss black piano lacquer-look trim
- Exterior designo magno platinum matte finish paint; four other exterior paint colors will be available from the existing C63 AMG palette.

The C63 AMG "Edition 507" will be celebrating its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, which will be opening its doors on March 5, 2013. The model's sales and market launch in the U.S. is planned for the Summer of 2013. Pricing will be announced closer to the market launch.

The C63 AMG "Editon 507" coupe and sedan replace the existing AMG Development Package for MY2014, and will be sold in the U.S. in addition to the existing C63 AMG coupe and sedan with 451 hp.

      I will NEVER forget what the service manager at Mercedes of Miami used to always say to me "these cars require LOTS of unscheduled, additional services due to quality control issues" Consumer reports does not have a SINGLE Merc recommended...wonder why? I bought a Lexus and I have never looked back!

          Seems you've been drinking the German Kool Aid too. 'OMG anything German is the best ever and never breaks down because it's German and that's why it costs so much more than anything that's not German and look at me I own a Mercedes, I'm so upscale and successful'

          Yes, you're right...He or she sounds too smart to deserve anything less than top notch quality from an expensive product. Nobody can "afford" the hassle of having their car break down in them frequently; Not unless its the kind of person who doesn't work and has servants to pick them up and take the broken down car to the repair shop for them.

          I never said that... I just traded for a 1999 S600 and if I didn't love the car, I would have given it away because of the outrageous maintenance cost. I think it's fun owning a high end German car with maintenance scares.

        Not only you're an idiot, your name is very offensive. I've bought/leased 7 Mercedes in the last 20 years and haven't had a single problem. Actually I put over 350,000 miles on my E320 sedan and only did scheduled maintenance, before I sold it and leased a C350 Coupe. Most of us who drive German cars have earned the wealth that affords us material comfort, and I can understand your frustration when you're stretching out every dime you have to drive around in a salvaged Lexus.

        Lexus - loser car. I had two MB's and absolutely no issues ever! Did you know that manager sometime in 70s or 80s by any chance?

      $80k C-class. They the C-class as taxis in Europe yet American's think it's luxury. I rode in one such taxi in Israel and my sister who rode with me didn't even notice that she was in a Mercedes...

        E class is standard taxi car in Germany and many other places. What's your point? Your sister does not know about cars or American taxis are not to the E class level? Or you trying to diss C class?

      Dressed up garbage. This car is easily outperformed by even the most basic sport cars for far less money. AMG editions are simply just overpriced unruley POS's.

        AMGs aren't supposed to be sports cars. Want a sports car for $80K? Buy a Corvette Z06, a gingerly used 911, or spend a bit less and get a Boxster S or Cayman S (or wait for the next Boxster Spyder or Cayman R). The C63 AMG is a bona-fide muscle car. It puts 450lb-ft through 255-width tires. For comparison, a base Boxster puts out 208lb-ft of torque (less than half!) through 265-width tires. The C63 is made for hooligans who like to make a lot of noise, and go VERY sideways ALL the time in a cloud of tire smoke. It's not trying to be an M3 fighter, and for that I respect it. It wants to be a very goofy, wayward angry sideways thing and it does that very well.
