2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Edition 1 And 2016 C63 DTM Racer Revealed
Mercedes-Benz’s sexy new C-Class Coupe and its high-performance C63 variant from Mercedes-AMG will arrive in showrooms early next year. However, other markets will receive the vehicles shortly after their debut this month at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show. To treat the early bird buyers, Mercedes-AMG will once again be offering a limited run of specially-equipped Edition 1 cars.
Shown for the first time, the Edition 1 will come in the exclusive color of Magno Selenite Gray together with a contrasting yellow stripe package. The particular combination is borrowed from Mercedes-AMG race cars like the 2016 GT3 and the 2016 C63 DTM, the latter of which also makes its debut this month at the Frankfurt Auto Show.
But getting back to the Edition 1, the car also features a yellow accent on its wheels which are otherwise matte black. They are forged pieces measuring 19 inches up front and 20 inches in the rear. The Edition 1 also benefits from uprated seats and an aerodynamics package, the latter coming with unique front and rear spoilers, new side skirts and a new rear diffuser. There’s also a number of gloss black elements around the body.
Inside, the sports seats are trimmed in Nappa leather and once again include yellow accents. Yellow contrast stitching is also found in the door center panels, arm rests, the steering wheel rim as well as the beltline. Further yellow accents adorn the instrument cluster, the AMG-specific analogue IWC-style clock, and the floor mats. The steering wheel gets a Dinamica microfiber trim and there is also some matte carbon on the dash.
