If there’s one thing the world doesn’t need, its more matte colored cars. We suppose its somewhat more palatable when it comes in the form of the limited edition Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG DR520.

DR520 stands for “Dyno Rated 520 horsepower” – and the 4.1 second 0-60 time seems to confirm that the power upgrades give the car an advantage over the standard C63. We do like the upgraded brakes and the other features available on the AMG Performance Pack, but the matte black or white vinyl wrap is less than desirable if you’re over the age of 25.
