Mercedes-AMG has revealed the unique ‘Edition 1’ special model series of the C 63 Coupe and the C 63 S Coupe. The Edition 1 special models sport design and equipments inspired from the Mercedes-AMG racing coupes that will compete in the 2016 DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) series.
The Edition 1 will be offered with two exclusive exterior design themes. The C63 S Coupe Edition 1 borrows styling heavily from the 2016 C 63 DTM to showcase the car’s inspiration from motorsport.
The Edition 1 features a Magno Selenite Grey matt paint with a yellow film coating and sport stripes that extend from the bonnet to the boot lid and side lines above the rocker panel. The race inspired model features light weight performance forged wheels in matt black with a five spoke design along with ceramic high-performance brake system also.
The exterior of the C 63 Coupe Edition 1 features a slightly toned down design language when compared to its other race inspired sibling. It features sport stripes in Graphite Grey matt and sports high-sheen wheels with a cross-spoke design. Additionally, sport tyres and the ceramic high-performance brake system can be opted as extra fitment.
Both models are specified with the AMG Aerodynamics Package including additional side skirts, large front spoiler, rear diffuser and lateral airflow break-away edges on the boot lid and rear apron in high-gloss black paint scheme.
Both the Edition 1 models feature AMG Performance seats in Nappa leather and yellow contrast stitching. The contrast stitching is there also in the door centre panels, armrests and steering wheel. The steering wheel has flat-bottom design and will be trimmed in DINAMICA micro fibre. Further modification is provided with the use of yellow and carbon trim inserts.
The Edition 1 models will be powered by a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo petrol engine available in two states of tune – 476 hp (C63 Coupe) and 510 hp (C63 S Coupe). The engine will be mated to AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed automatic transmission. Both models will also be offered with the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers and the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes. The C 63 S Coupe gets rear-axle limited-slip differential and dynamic engine mounts also.
