How do you make a Mercedes AMG car even more powerful? Well, the guys at Mercedes themselves have the answer. Mercedes-Benz has launched a powerful edition of the C63 AMG called as Edition 507. As the nomenclature suggests, under the hood sits a 507PS V8 engine.

The crew at AMG have tweaked the C63's engine with a lighter crankshaft, forged pistons and new connecting rods, reducing the engine's overall weight by a good 13kg. Mercedes have also added huge red 14.2-inch twin-piece rotors to reign in all the power. The company will be offering it in three body styles - sedan, coupe and wagon.

Apart from the mechanicals, how different is the Edition 507 from the C63 AMG? For starters, the 507 gets an optional matte black 19-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels, black accents on the grille, vented bonnet and the same black striping on the mirrors and rear spoilers.
