The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 coupe is one of the most badass little two-doors on God’s green earth. The C63’s formula is pretty straightforward; cram a massive V8 into a fairly small car and add all the necessary components to keep it on the road. Mercedes did a wonderful job at making all said components work in unison to create a vehicle that performs like a track car with show car looks.

At first glance, the 507 Edition looks like a custom ride with its matte paint, aftermarket-style 19-inch wheels and custom hood. In regards to the matte paint specifically, I don’t know why more companies don’t opt to try this on their higher-end models as it adds so much to a car like this accentuating every razor sharp bodyline. The aggressive styling works so well on this beautiful Benz because it parallels the performance with perfection and its rare that the two attributes are in such harmony as one is usually lacking in vehicles like these.

In regards to performance, the 507 Edition C63 is just plain nasty. The throaty, deep exhaust note surprised me ever time I started the car and the muscle-car rumble coming from such a small car always brought a grin to my face. The beastly exhaust note remains strong throughout the power band so long as you have the balls to keep your foot on the gas. Speaking of acceleration, the only red mark in regards to the performance is the transmission. I may have had it in the wrong mode or been driving in sub-optimal conditions but there seemed to be a lag in switching gears when I planted the pedal to the floor and after high speed sessions it struggled to downshift back into the proper gear. Thankfully, the C63 AMG 507 Edition has the AMG Performance Braking System, which certainly came in handy following feats of rapid acceleration. Around corners the C63 feels like a competition go-kart, yet it’s still possible to push it too far as it likes to do a little tail-wagging at times. That being said, quickly turning out of your neighborhood may scare the crap out of everyone as you accidentally drift up the street.

The interior of the 507 Edition is attractive, sporty and definitely exudes the supercar vibe as the seats look and feel like racing buckets while upholstered in porcelain and black Nappa leather. And even though the coupe is fairly small, I was able to seat four adults (two women in the back) fairly comfortably on a short trip. The dash and multimedia system were pleasing to the eye and fairly easy to use while not being over-bearing.

And of course, all this awesomeness comes at a price. Even though the base C63 AMG coupe is a solid $62,750, the Edition 507 and all of its exterior and interior options yield a grand total of a whopping $87,885 before taxes. Is it worth the jump in price? If you’re looking for the best pound-for-pound naturally aspirated lil’ coupe in the game, I’d have to say yes.

Damage: $87,885.00

Power: 507 hp, 450 lb.-ft.

Yo, What Up, All-New 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG (w/Video)

Reassurance we didn't need, but still appreciate.

We were never all that worried that Mercedes-Benz wouldn’t build an AMG version of the new S-Class. Seriously, c’mon—those AMGs are both cash cows and publicity gold for Mercedes, there’s no way they wouldn’t. But it’s still nice to see this little video that shows the still-officially-unconfirmed 2014 (or 2015) S63 AMG is already rolling off the assembly line. Literally. (more…)

Mercedes-Benz AMG Working On New 4.0 Liter Twin Turbo V8

Its tragic destiny: to replace AMG's 6.2 liter V8.

Bittersweet news, gang: Mercedes-Benz’s AMG division is working on an all-new motor. As always, it’s cause for joy, but also makes us sad…because that usually means AMG plans on taking another engine out of circulation. And in this case, the new motor will replace one of our favorites. (more…)
