Article by Christian Andrei, on September 25, 2014

The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Sedan and Estate models made their official debut yesterday, but today the German manufacturer revealed the first photos with the Edition 1 model. Available on the Mercedes-AMG C62 and C62 S, the Edition 1 versions arrive with an exclusive design and equipment features.

First of all, we have six exterior paint finishes: polar white, design diamond white bright, iridium, silver metallic, palladium silver metallic, obsidian black metallic and the AMG-exclusive design iridium silver magno.

Available as a saloon or sedan, the 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Edition 1 gets plenty of design highlights such as 19-inch forged wheels showing a cross-spoke design, painted in matte black and featuring a red rim, black-chromed tailpipes, separation edge in high-gloss black on the saloon, red decals on radiator grille and wing mirrors and sport stripes (decals) in matte graphite grey above sill cladding.

In addition, the vehicles are equipped with the Night Package which includes high-gloss black A-wing and trim, high-gloss black wing mirror housings, sill cladding inlays in high-gloss black, waistline trim and window frames in high-gloss black, a radiator grille with double fin in silver chrome and heat-insulating tinted class rearward of B-pillar.

Same theme is continued at the interior where we find a diamond pattern and red contrasting stitching on the performance seats, door centre panels and armrest in black nappa leather, red designo seatbelts, a flat-bottomed performance steering wheel in Dinamica microfiber with red contrasting stitching, silver-coloured aluminum shift paddles and steering wheel fairing in silver chrome with ‘Edition 1’ lettering.

Moreover, the interior includes a trim element in carbon red pepper and light aluminum with longitudinal grand and red filaments, as well a black floor mats featuring the ‘AMG’ lettering and piping in red. Under the hood, we find the same 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine which delivers 476 hp on the C63 models and 510 hp on the C63 S.

The 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Sedan accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds, while the Estate needs 4.2 seconds. Meanwhile, the 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 S needs 4.0 seconds to reach the same speed, while the Estate is 0.1 seconds slower. Both models offer a top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
