Jenson Button, the reigning 2009 Formula One World Champion, has received one of only twenty DR 520s made. The vehicle is a special edition C 63 AMG and is only available from the ‘Specialist Products Division’ at Mercedes-Benz World.
The price of the car starts at £ 63,680 and includes some performance upgrades. The engine output is increased to a dyno rated 520hp – 60hp more than the standard C 63 AMG, and means the DR 520 can reach 0-100km/h (62mph) in just 4.2 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 301km/h (187mph).
On the outside the car has matt black body work, on the inside an interior lavished in leather and Alcantara.
As GTspirit we spotted the car during the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2010. Please read our preview here.
