BMW does "Lime Rock," while Mercedes innovates. Nice car.

BMW, response?

Thats what i'm talking about! If you're going to bring out a special edition... BRING IT!!
They get HP we get a car with orange paint. Lets not forget our DTM championship edition with black paint and over sized M stickers.

This is why this is my last BMW. They're now copying Audi with model designations, and far trailing MB in technical development. BMW is the fat, lazy, arrogant, slob of the German car companies.

I'm a previous c63 owner and all I can say is never again. This is a frankenstein edition, a mix bag from stock and the BS. Maybe the saloon will look good but I could not get over that coupe. Try a test drive and you will get hook with the AMG sound alone but overtime, it disappoints specially knowing there is a better car out there. M3 rules!

I still think the transmission is a major flaw in this car.
The tires are a joke for a car with this much power. 235 fronts/255 rears.
It is still very nice.

I wish BMW made a proper "special edition". Whats up BMW?

are you driving the car that you love? If yes, then who cares if you can travel 0-60 .1 second faster?

I'm guessing this is BMW's response.

"Notably, the 2014 C63 AMG 507 Edition will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March the same venue at which BMW is launching its all-new, inline-six-powered M3 sedan."

Just another MB that will be in the shop every other month. I'll give them a half gold star for at least making an effort.

Hey, it's silver. That's a surprise! I see MB is still sizing and locating the tach where drivers like it..........small and way off to the right. Don't get me wrong, I like MBs. They're the musclecar makers of the german car industry.
