Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Edition 1 marks the debut of the all-new C-Class Coupe in top AMG guise. The special model will be available in limited run during the first year of production and premiere alongside the regular C 63 at the Frankfurt motor show.
Two design packages will make their appearance, both honoring and mimicking at the same time the crazy Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM 2016 racing car. And their design influence is impressive with the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupe set to receive a rather impressive visual make over.
Among the upgrades we find exclusive designo Magno Selenite Grey matt paint, complete with yellow film coating and yellow sport stripes for the engine bonnet, roof, boot lid as well as the side lines above the rocker panels. Further yellow accents adorn the instrument cluster, the AMG-specific analogue in IWC design and the floor mats. Also unique to the special edition are 19-inch Performance black wheels with yellow painted rim flanges. Ceramic brakes, AMG Performance seats in Nappa leather with yellow stitching complete the picture.
The second package, on the other hand, is dedicated to the most conservative of clients and is defined by discrete grey matte sport stripes and black forged alloys with high-sheen cross-spoke style. Ceramic brakes are optional as well as the complete paint palette. This is exclusive to the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe with the top of the line S variant only available together with the more extensive package, aforementioned.
Larger front spoiler and unique, more prominent side skirts, rear diffuser, lateral and rear airflow break-away edges are featured on both variants with the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Edition 1 also equipped with the AMG Night Package consisting of high-gloss black accents for the mirrors, aprons and side sills plus double chrome plated grille and tailpipes.
Tech-wise, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Edition 1 is mostly unchanged for the untrained eye. At second look we find flared front and rear wheel arches coupled with an increased track width and larger wheels. The 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine of Mercedes-AMG GT fame (sans dry sump lubrication) also stays the same, offering the already announced 476 hp and 510 hp power outputs.
