Think the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is powerful enough? With 460 horses under the hood, it'd be hard to surmise otherwise. But feast your eyes on the new DR 520.

A special limited edition for the British market, the DR 520 is the product of the Mercedes Specialist Products Division headquartered at the legendary Brooklands race track in England. It benefits from a 60-horse boost to a dyno-rated 520 hence the name. The package is completed by matte black or white finish, titanium-finish wheels and chrome, and the AMG Performance Pack Plus with upgraded brakes and engine components.

Only 20 examples will be made in either sedan or wagon body-styles, each carrying a 10k premium over stock at 62,430 or 63,680 respectively.

What a beast. That's an 11-sec C-Class.

Price tag is crazy though. A regular C63 only needs $1,500 worth of mods to get 500+ hp

520hp? Great, now you can waste the tires in 20 min instead of 40.
