The facelifted Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model will arrive in Australia in October as a single sedan specification priced at $249,900, replacing both the entry and Performance Pack E63 models. Meanwhile the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 also replaces the Performance Pack in the smaller compact rear-wheel-drive range, but the entry C63 AMG model is retained.

The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model rear-wheel drive costs $8485 less than the old Performance Pack model, which produced 20kW less power. The new S-Model also adds a locking rear differential, auto-parking capability, and full-LED headlights over the previous performance edition’s specifications.

Mercedes-Benz Australia general manager of sales Richard Emery, says the decision to drop the entry E63 was because “most customers have opted for the Performance Pack”.

The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 sedan is priced at $169,407, with the wagon and coupe adding $2000 and $3000 respectively. Unlike the E63 AMG, however, the standard C63 AMG with 336kW and 600Nm will be kept in the line-up.

From its tweaked 6.2-litre V8, the C63 AMG Edition 507 produces 373kW of power (or 507hp) and 610Nm of torque. Both figures are up compared with the outgoing Performance Pack, by 15kW and 10Nm.

    C63 Edition 507 looks awesome. Seems best value? Same price as what normal C63 seems to be, but with practically same power as Black Series. Same power as Black but 80K cheaper? The only reason i’d want the Black is for the wide rear wheel arch, as the 507 has the awesome tough Black features at the front, but still not the rear. But most importantly i’d want that Aerodynamic pack Rear Wing… best part of the Black. And the badge of course. But for $70K cheaper, with 507HP Vs 510hp Black, surely this is the best choice now? Wonder if used Black Series will come down in price in 2-3 years, or will it go up since there were only 32 of them, i.e ‘collectors’ price? Obviously Black has the stature/aura, but if it stays so expensive, i might just go the Edition 507, same power and almost same looks. If only i lived in U.S or U.K. Could get a Black Series C63 for $120K, lol. But then i’d live there and not here in Aus. Pro’s and Con’s i guess.
