Jenson Button, the reigning 2009 Formula One World Champion, has taken delivery of a limited edition Mercedes C-Class DR 520 Estate.

Decked out in matt black, the uber estate is a C63 AMG on steroids. The 6.3-liter V8 engine produces 520 PS (382 kW / 513 hp) and 650 Nm (479 ft-lb) of torque - 60 PS (44 kW / 59 hp) and 50 Nm (37 lb-ft) more than the standard C63 AMG - thanks to forged pistons, new connecting rods and a revised crankshaft. This allows the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds, before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h).

Other goodies include titanium accents, leather / Alcantara sport seats, and an AMG braking system.

While Button probably got his car for free, regular folks will have to cough up £63,680 for a chance to own one of the twenty DR 520s that will be produced.
