Mercedes-Benz has once again teamed up with Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen to offer a special edition SL63 that comes with an IWC “Grosser Ingenieur” watch. The timepiece is also a special edition model and is designed to compliment the SL.

One particular highlight of the SL63 AMG Edition IWC is that it comes with stunning matte-white paint. That, plus you get the incredible performance of the first ever ground-up AMG designed and built engine. The 6.2-liter V-8 pumps out 518hp and 465 ft-lbs of torque to propel the SL63 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds.

Exclusivity is the name of the game here and so production is extremely limited. Only 200 models will be built with just 63 are coming to the US.

Mercedes/AMG has been working with IWC since 2004 when the partners presented the CLS55 AMG “IWC Engineer.”
