The 507 has been launched as a last hurrah for the C63 AMG, which, with the new C-class being shown at Detroit 2014, is at the end of its run. Since 2007, the C63 (launched as a saloon and estate, initially) has been one of the lairiest, most entertaining performance cars on the road, taking the fight to one of our other favourites – the outgoing BMW M3 – and often winning on character and thrills if outperformed in terms of overall dynamic polish.
To make the 507, Mercedes has fettled the 6208cc V8 engine with parts from the fire breathing SLS AMG to increase power from 470bhp to 510bhp, while torque has been upped a mere 8lb ft to 450lb ft. The C63 and the SLS – which bookend the range – use two versions of the naturally-aspirated V8 (the M156 and M159 for the trainspotters) and remain the only two models not yet using the newer, cleaner (less characterful) 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8. So the 507 is the end of an era – get it while you can.
