Its exclusive design is characterised by a host design features. The aluminium bonnet has two openings that are adopted from the C63 AMG Black Series. The openings help to dispel hot air from the engine. AMG sports stripes adorn the side panels of the Edition 507. They are finished in matt graphite grey. The front and rear diffusor are finished in high-gloss black. The exterior mirror housing, daytime running lights and radiator grille’s edge also receive similar colour treatment. Its darkened front headlights give the front an aggressive and sporty touch. The C63 AMG Edition 507 rides on new AMG light-alloy cross-spoke wheels. They are fitted with 235/35 R 19 tyres at the front and 255/30 R 19 tyres at the rear. The wheels are available in two variants; a high sheen finish titanium grey alloys or unique matt black with a high-sheen rim outline.

Under the two bonnet openings is a naturally aspirated 6.3litre V8 engine found in a normal C63 AMG. To make the Edition 507 C63 AMG, the engine’s output was increased by 50hp (37kW). Hence the car gets its 507 tag from the 507hp (373kW) in the bonnet. Married to the engine is AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission. To increase the powerplant’s output AMG used a similar engine tuning technology from the SLS AMG. Standard C63 AMG models come with 457hp. The rear wheels are spurn endlessly by 610Nm of torque. The Saloon and Coupe variants accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.2 seconds. The heavier C63 AMG Edition 507 Estate requires 0.1 seconds more to complete the same task. Top speed is limited to 280km/h.

The special edition C63 AMG comes with powerful AMG high-performance braking system. Its front axles make use of composite disc measuring 360 x 36 mm.

The brake discs are ventilated and perforated all round and are decelerated by means of 6-piston aluminium fixed callipers on the front axle and 4-piston fixed callipers on the rear axle. They are finished in red paint.
