That did not last long: Sidney Hoffmann’s heavily tuned Mercedes-AMG C 63 S is already on sale again! The price is violent and AUTO BILD has all the information.
Hoffmann’s motto sounds like this: “Tuning is not paid for the resale value”! Nothing more false it appears. A juicy 99.890 euro price tag is what Mercedes dealer asks for the Camo-Benz – with only 15,000 kilometers on the clock. The basic vehicle is a Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Edition 1 from 2015. Former factory price according to dealer: 117,037 euros.
In addition to the extensive series equipment Sidney’s actually silver C 63 also has ceramic brakes and the Burmester sound system. For the necessary depth, Sidney installed KW coil springs (from 749 Euros) directly after purchase. Next came a fuselage exhaust from Friedrich Motorsport (starting from 3670 euro), multi-spoke 20-inch-Schmidt rims (around 6000 Euro) and a Camouflage-foil (around 3000 Euro).
All these conversion measures are included in the current purchase price of almost 100,000 euros. Optionally a performance increase is offered, taking power up to 643 hp and 820 Nm (series 510 hp and 700 Nm), but without guarantee.
Despite the tuning measures worth 15,000 euros, the called price appears high – even with a prominent previous owner. Similar C 63 S limousines, including the “Edition 1 package” with the ceramic brake and a matt-silver paint (magno) go for a price of 75,000 euros. So about 25,000 euros less! Who can do without the “Edition 1 package” and tuning can find a similar C 63 S even around 68,000 euros.
Short history of Sidney’s C 63 S: At the Essen Motor Show 2015, the PS Profi unveils the brand-new camouflage design of its AMG. Already in April 2016 Sidney Hoffmann sold the C 63 to a mounting company, which uses the converted AMG as an advertising vehicle. Now the Camo-Benz is available for sale again at a Mercedes dealer in Hagen for 99.890 Euro.
