Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Edition 1 unveiled

Merc announces special Edition 1 variant of hot C-Class Coupe, set to debut at Frankfurt show with striking colour scheme

Mercedes has revealed a striking Edition 1 variant of its new C 63 AMG Coupe. Available from March as an option with the C 63 or C 63 S spec, it brings racy styling add-ons, a unique paint scheme and performance interior upgrades. 

The Edition 1 is launched alongside Mercedes' new DTM racing car based on the C 63, and bears some resemblance to it. As with the AMG GT sports car, the Edition 1 upgrades are mainly styling related, and can be had with either the 469bhp standard 4.0-litre V8, or the flagship 'S' with 503bhp.

Unique to the C 63 Edition 1 'S' is the Magno Selenite paintwork with bold yellow film coating as a full-length body stripe as well as on the doors, wheels and mirrors. Yellow-painted calipers for the standard-fit ceramic performance brakes also feature. The alloy wheels themselves are of a lightweight matt-black forged design; 19-inch on the front and 20-inch at the rear. 

The standard C 63 Edition 1 is available with graphite grey stripes and styling details instead. Both get a gloss black aero package which includes a new front spoiler, specific side skirts, a rear diffuser and beefier rear spoiler. The AMG Night Package is also available on the car.

Inside there's yellow stripe additions to the AMG performance seats, as well as yellow detailing around the cabin. Prices are yet to be confirmed, but we can expect up to a £5,000 upgrade on the standard C 63 Coupe.
