Only 20 units will be available, sold exclusively through the company's Specialist Products division at Mercedes-Benz World in Brooklands, Surrey. Based on the high-performance C63 AMG, the DR 520 has a performance upgrade, boasting 520hp and 480 lb-ft of torque, a 60hp and 37 lb-ft advantage over than the standard C63 AMG.

The DR 520 Sedan can reach 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds, with the Wagon achieving it in 4.2 seconds. Both are electronically limited to a top speed of 187mph. The AMG Performance Pack Plus is fitted to the DR 520 as standard. It features AMG's high-performance braking system with red calipers, plus engine upgrades in the form of forged pistons, new connecting rods and a revised crankshaft, as well as an AMG carbon fiber rear spoiler for the Sedan.

Available with a black or white matte wrap, and complimented by Titanium finish wheels, grille and discreet DR 520 badging on the fender and the trunk lid, the DR 520 combines stealthy looks with potent performance.

Inside, the sports seats are upholstered in leather and Alcantara, finished with red or white contrasting stitching. This is echoed on the dashboard and upper door panels.

The multi-function AMG Performance steering wheel is clad in Nappa leather and Alcantara.

Nigel Unsworth, Specialist Products Division Manager commented: "We wanted to launch the Specialist Products Division with something unique - and the DR 520 fits the bill perfectly. Mercedes-Benz World is located at Brooklands, and there's a proud history of 'Brooklands Specials' being sold here over the years. The DR 520 - which is dyno-rated at 520hp - is our chance to create an exclusive model for the UK. It's a great opportunity for us to offer our customers who enjoy sports and supercars, a bespoke car with even more performance than the already successful C63 AMG. And as well as the increased performance, it looks incredible, too."
