Each of the 130 cars available worldwide will bear a characteristic badge on the center console and an engraving on the steering wheel. The interior can feature AMG carbon trim or piano black ornaments, while the upholstery can be ordered from the Designo Nappa leather range. Normally, the car is sold in a red and black combination, but a crystal grey and black option is also available.
Furthermore, each customer of this special edition will receive a tailor-made indoor cover that has an embroidered lettering specifying that the vehicle under it is a limited edition model. At delivery, each customer will also receive a special key ring with the Edition 130 badge, which will be found in an aluminum box with the car’s key.
The engine of the S63 Cabriolet is unchanged for this limited edition of the model. The 5.5-liter V8 unit develops 585 HP and 900 Nm of torque (663 lb-ft) and is capable of pushing the all-wheel-drive Cabriolet from 0 to 62 MPH (0-100 km/h) in just 3.9 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited to 155 MPH (250 km/h).
According to AMG boss Tobias Moers, Mercedes-Benz chose a convertible variant to celebrate the invention of the automobile by Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz because their first automobile was also an open-top vehicle.
In Germany, one of these limited-edition S63 AMG Edition 130 Cabriolets will start at 226,457 euros. The car will be available for order starting April 2016, so prepare your bank accounts!
