Mercedes-Benz has pulled the sheet off yet another special edition, and this one will be specifically for the Japanese market.

The C63 AMG will receive some nice paint and plastic options to complete the tough look of the car and some engine enhancements to boost the engine output, making sure that there is some power to back up the upgraded style. Dubbed the Performance Studio Edition, the car will be only available as a Coupe, and only in Japan. A matte black paint job, complete with blacked out grille and rims is nicely accented by the chrome front emblem, red brake calipers and red rim accents.

The 6.2-liter V8 found in the C63 AMG gets a 30 hp boost up to a total output of 481 hp, made possible by new pistons, connecting rods, and crank shaft that are sourced from the SLS AMG.

The interior of the car gets some nice red leather, contrasted by black leather with red stitching and some carbon fiber bits. The AMG crest is embossed in the headrest to complete the look, reminding you ever time you enter the car, that this is not just an ordinary Benz.
