2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Released [Video] [Photo Gallery]
The main change is a power boost of 50 hp for the naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V8 engine, which now delivers 507 hp, while the torque receives a minor 20 Nm (lb-ft) increase to 610 Nm (450 lb-ft). To achieve the new output, the M156 powerplant of the C63 AMG has borrowed the forged pistons from the M159 unit of the SLS AMG, also receiving a lighter crankshaft and upgraded connecting rods, as well as a new ECU map.
In the real world, the update means that the C63 AMG Coupe and Sedan deal with the 0 to 62 mph sprint in 4.2 seconds, while the Estate needs an extra 0.1 seconds for the job. As for the top speed, this is electronically limited to 174 mph (280 km/h), regardless of the body style chosen.
Unfortunately, the limited slip differential is an optional feature, but the good news is that the list of non-standard items includes goodies such as an upgrded suspension and the AMG Performance Media.
The stopping power has also been increased, with AMG introducing composite rotors in a size of 360x36 mm with six-pistons calipers for the front axle.
The C63 AMG Edition 507 rides on 19-inch wheels with rubber coming in a size of 235/35 R 19 up front and 255/30 R 19 at the back.
The exterior changes are limited and include a high-gloss black finish for the exterior mirror caps, radiator grille surround and daytime driving lights. We also receive darkened front lights and a designo Magno Platinum color.
US customers will receive the 2014 Edition 507 instead of the 2013 coupe and sedan fitted with the AMG Development Pacakge.
The complete details of the new model can be found in the press release below (PDF file).
