New Merc is packed full of power

Whether they opt for a saloon, estate or coupe, owners of the new Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Edition 507 will be able to feel the force of an extra helping of horsepower and torque.

The Edition 507 gives drivers 50hp and 10Nm more for their money than the standard C 63 AMG models, with the saloon priced at £66,960 and the estate and coupe going for £68,160 when they go on sale in the UK in July. Abreakdown of its specifications reveals that this extra punch will send the Edition 507 from 0 to 62mph in 4.2 seconds and the AMG Drivers Package allows it to reach a top speed of 174mph before the electronic limiter kicks in.

It looks the part too, with 19" AMG Cross-Spoke alloys, composite brake system with red brake callipers and black gloss power domes and air outlets.

Drivers are faced with an AMG Performance steering wheel, Edition 507 badges on the dashboard and glossy black trim.
