C 63 AMG Edition 507 Gets Reviewed by CarsGuide

The Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Edition 507 is one of the two swan songs for the legendary M156 engine – a V8 made famous by its epic sound, its amazing power and torque delivery and the fact that it was the first engine developed entirely by AMG, without being based on any Mercedes-Benz powertrain.

Sporting a range of parts which it shares with the more hardcore C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series and the SLS AMG, the Edition 507 is available in either sedan, coupe or station wagon guise, depending on the market.

Sporting 507 hp and 610 Nm (450 lb ft) of torque, its naturally-aspirated, 6.2 liter V8 will not be used on another three-pointed star model starting with 2015, its fuel thirst being one of the main reasons for it being gradually replaced by the internally-codenamed M157 – a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 – which will also be replaced by a completely new four-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 created from combining two M133 engines form the 45 AMG series together.

Until that time arrives, the AMG versions of the current C-Class and the SLS AMG are the only two models sporting various variants of the M156.

The C 63 AMG Edition 507 was recently launched in the land down under as well, with the Aussies from CarsGuide being among the many publications which had a go in the coupe version. Their C 63 AMG Coupe Edition 507 review is a testimony of the ways that a car can make someone feel like a racing driver, but we'll let them do the talking.
