Hardcore, special edition Mercedes C63 AMG revealed at Goodwood
1 July 2010

Mercedes has launched a 513bhp, 480lb ft special edition version of the C63 AMG.

Only 20 examples of the new Mercedes C63 DR520 will be produced, and they will only be available through Mercedes-Benz World at a cost of £62,430 for the saloon and £63,680 for the estate. That's just over £10,000 more than the standard C63 models.

The DR520 - named for its dyno-rated power output - is the first car produced by MB World’s Specialist Products division, using parts developed at the Brookland’s-based facility as well as Brabus-developed parts.

AMG’s performance pack is fitted as standard and the engine gets upgrades in the form of forged pistons, revised crankshaft and new connecting rods.

The result is a 0-62mph time of 4.1seconds for the saloon (4.2 for the estate) – an improvement of 0.4sec. The DR250 is available only in either matt black or matt white.

Ok, that's a snap of an E-Class. So which is it C or E?

Don't prestige car makes - usually German ones - get tired of trundling these sledghammer monstrosities out?

1 July 2010

No, and I'd quite like one, make mine a matt black saloon please. (Like that chap driving around here with the reg no C63 BLK). There is something faintly ludicrous about this sort of power in a small saloon and by God I love it.

Can I have mine in shiny black like the one in the picture? Or has the picture ed f*cked up?


1 July 2010

Picture ed must have mucked it up, that's an E63.

I'll have a matte black estate please, so I can get my IKEA furniture home in record time.

No, that's a C. The E has two smaller lights inside of the Main lamps, next to the grille
