Mercedes has just announced a new limited edition version of its high-performance C63 AMG model at the Montreal Auto Show. Limited to just 30 units, the C63 AMG Affalterbach Edition was designed at AMG headquarters in Affalterbach, Germany.
Finished in a unique MAGNO Allanite Grey (matte gray), the C63 gets custom black AMG 19-inch wheels with red AMG brakes, as well as carbon fiber mirror housings and a rear lip spoiler on the trunk.
Inside, the interior gets reworked with custom leatherwork with the Affalterbach logo on the headrests, while red stitching adds even more style to the Nappa leather sport seats. There’s an Affalterbach logo on the gearshift, plus an AMG carbon fiber package, not to mention special AMG floormats. And of course, each model gets its own Affalterbach Edition badge identifying exactly which of the 30 it is.
The 6.2-liter V8 gets the AMG Performance Package, upping power to 481-hp and delivering a 0-62 mph time of 4.4 seconds, while also adding on a limited slip differential and deleting the top speed limiter.
The price of $81,500 (CDN dollars) seems hard to swallow at first when you consider the base C63 costs $63,600, when you add on that AMG Package plus the included Premium Package and you’re already at 76,900. So really, it’s a small price to pay for some nice paint and a lot of exclusivity.
