Here's the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Edition 1 In All Its Biturbocharged Glory

Two AMG products were unleashed in less than a month, so the peeps over at Mercedes-Benz have been on a roll lately. We covered both the Mercedes-AMG GT and C 63, including a little comparison between the two, but now's time to talk about the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Edition 1 uber sedan.

Like its two-door coupe counterpart, the C 63 drops the "Benz" from its name and it's also available in a hot, more powerful version dubbed S. Mercedes is going to open the order books for the AMG variant of the C-Class next month and, to celebrate this, a celebratory Edition 1 model will be offered as well.

Joining its AMG GT Edition 1 brother, the C 63 S in Edition 1 guise is sporting a suite of cosmetic add-ons such as 19-inch AMG forged wheels boasting with a cross-spoke black design and red accents. The list of tweaks continues with a gloss black boot spoiler, red accents on the side mirror caps and the radiator grille and gray matte stripes on the sedan's sides.

More like Amazing Mega-powerful G-ride if you turn the key and fire up the M177 4-liter biturbo V8's 510 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque. Coupled to the Speedshift seven-speed multi-clutch automatic, this bad boy does 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4 seconds dead, a tenth faster than the BMW M3 with the dual-clutch transmission ticked from the options list. So what else do you get on the C 63 S Edition 1?

Starting with the usual dark tinted glass, some black trim here and there and chrome exhaust tips, Merc also offers AMG Performance seats wrapped in black Nappa leather with a trick diamond pattern that's further beautified by red contrasting stitching. Microfiber on the steering wheel, AMG floor mats, red safety belts and carbon fiber elements round off the Edition 1 nicely. No word on pricing yet, sorry.
