Just in case you missed the headlines before, the DR 520 is a super limited-edition top-o-the-heap AMG C63 fitted with the Performance Pack Plus (forged pistons, new connecting rods, and a revised crankshaft) with 520 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. The DR 520-specific bits include a matte-finish vinyl wrap, custom embroidered interior, and carbon-fiber aero bits.

Jenson Button took delivery of his matte black Estate copy at Mercedes-Benz World Weybridge, Surrey, UK, where it's postulated the wagon-awesomeness event horizon originated. Current predictions place wagons being acceptable and even preferred transportation for the so-far anti-wagon public within 24 hours.
