After the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and its more powerful sibling, the C63s AMG, here are the first photos of the special launch model dubbed Edition 1.
For some twisted reason, Mercedes has shared photos and preliminary details on its consumer site in Germany and nowhere else, but it will have to do for now and until the big public reveal in Paris.
“Edition 1” is a name that Benz gives to the first special series of a new model, usually available in limited quantities for the first year.
It’s not clear from the text if the Edition 1 is available only on the pictured 510PS (503hp) C63s AMG or if buyers can also order it on the base 476PS (470hp) C63 AMG. We’ll remind you that both models get a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 linked to a seven-speed sports transmission driving the rear wheels.
On the outside, what you get with the cosmetics-only Edition 1 is graphite grey stripes on the body, red accents on the front grille, the 19-inch alloy wheels and mirror, a gloss black front lip spoiler, and the Night package with gloss black exterior trims and chrome tailpipes.
Interior upgrades include a flat bottom steering in Alcantara with silver accents and a red 12 o’clock -marking, AMG Performance seats, carbon fiber trim elements, Designo red belts, special floor mats and full upholstery in black nappa leather with diamond pattern and red contrast stitching.
