2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507

Mercedes-Benz is taking a page out of the playbook of the SLS supercar to power up a new version of the C63 AMG, named the Edition 507.

Metaphorically, the "page" describes the inner workings of the SLS AMG supercar's 6.2-liter V8 engine. Specifically, it has forged pistons from the SLS plus new connecting rods and a lightweight crankshaft.

The result: Power grows to 507 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque in the naturally aspirated engine. That's up 56 hp and 7 lb-ft from the C63 in basic trim. Top speed is 174 mph.

It's also an increase from the AMG development package, which bolstered output to 481 hp using similar engine-modification techniques.

More coverage from the Geneva Motor Show

The 2014 C63 AMG Edition 507 replaces the development pack for the 2014 model year. It goes on sale this summer in the United States after a reveal in March at the Geneva Motor Show. It will be available as a coupe or sedan.

The sports car is also fitted with AMG brakes, a hood from the C63 Black Series and forged alloy 19-inch wheels for both front and rear. The spoiler, mirror housings and grille surrounds are also painted a high gloss shade of black.
