2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Wagon! The Modern Hammer Wagon? [Ignition Episode 76]

On this episode of Ignition, Jonny Lieberman travels to Germany to drive a car we don’t get, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Wagon.

Through the winding roads of the Black Forest to the mean straights of Germany’s notorious Autobahn, Lieberman puts the 507 horsepower, 450 pound-feet of torque super wagon through its paces.

The question isn’t whether or not a wagon fanatic like Lieberman likes the 507 wagon (he does), but if the new AMG grocery hauler can live up to the legend that came before it, the mighty Hammer Wagon.

2013MY Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG “Edition 507”

Merc’s Affalterbach-based performance division has decided to sprinkle a little of the SLS magic on the C-Class. Thus it launched the C 63 AMG “Edition 507” that puts out 500HP (507PS) and 610 Nm (450 lb-ft) of torque; that makes it 50 ponies more powerful than the stock C 63 AMG and beats the AMG Development Packaged equipped version by 20HP.

Unlike the Black Series, though, which only comes as a coupe, the “Edition 507” will be available as a sedan and an estate, too, with the latter being one tenth of a second slower than the other two on the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint.

Externally, the new version features dark-tinted headlamps, an aluminum bonnet with two air outlets “borrowed” from the Black Series variant, new 19-inch lightweight alloys with 235/35 front and 255/30 rear tires, a high-gloss black finish on details like the surrounds of the grille and the daytime driving lights, and an exclusive platinum paintjob..

Power is still directed to the rear wheels via the 7-Speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT auto gearbox, while stopping is taken care off by carbon ceramic discs that measure 360 mm in diameter up front and feature six- and four-piston red calipers at the front and rear respectively.

The C 63 AMG “Edition 507” will make its international debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 5. The sales release will begin on April 8 and the market launch in Germany in June.
