Following yesterday’s unveiling of the new C63 AMG Edition 507, Mercedes Benz now releases a promo video for the car to let us appreciate the exquisite details and the exclusive paint job they have put on this special edition. Finished in designo magno platinum, the Edition 507 is a fully-loaded C63 with unique design features, and engine technology from the SLS AMG super car.
The increase in power output to 373 kW (507 hp) at 6800 rpm comes courtesy of the modified inner workings of the AMG 6.3-litre 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 three kilogrammes. The reduced mass inertia benefits the agility of the eight-cylinder M 156 naturally aspirated engine, which now features even higher levels of flexibility. The maximum torque has also increased by 10 Nm, jumping from 600 to 610 Nm 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.
