Currently the second most powerful C-Class in the AMG road going line-up by only 10 hp, the Edition 507 features, you guessed it, 507 horsepower delivered via aspiration at 6.800 rpm, enough to propel the Teutonic muscle sedan from naught to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.1 seconds.
In the following video of the car, one of the very few currently available on Youtube or any other video sites, The Getawayer gives a very German sounding review of the special car. By “German sounding” we are talking about both the man's accent and the scrupulousness of the way it's filmed.

Alex handled his first real steering wheel at the age of five (on a field) and started practicing "Scandinavian Flicks" at 14 (on non-public gravel roads).
