Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of all-stars as the global blockbuster franchise built on speed races to its next continent in “Fast & Furious 6.”
Reuniting for their most high-stakes adventure yet, fan favorites Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Sung Kang, Gal Gadot, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Elsa Pataky are joined by badass series newcomers Luke Evans and Gina Carano.
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.
Don’t ask how I came to be driving it. I’m a year late to this review, so most people already know what they need to know. But do they know what the Spider is like if you drive it like a mentalist? They will now.
