Mercedes-Benz debuts special SL 63 AMG dedicated to Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 1, 2014

In order to celebrate its triumph in the Formula 1 World Championship, Mercedes-Benz introduced two exclusive models of the SL 63 AMG co-created with Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. Production will be limited to just 19 units of each model and as expected each vehicle will be one-of-a-kind and dedicated to one of the 19 Formula 1 race tracks used this year.

The model co-created with Lewis Hamilton features a special Night Black Magno paint finish found on the detachable parts such as the exterior mirrors, door handles and rims, while the gold-coloured lettering, fins and stripes on the rear bumper complete the design.

In addition, the tailpipe trim is finished in chromed black. The interior is dominated by black and gold, featuring stylish details such as gold-coloured stitching on the seats wrapped in black nappa leather, instrument panel and centre console, with the trim parts featuring gold colour.

Meanwhile, the SL63 AMG model co-created with Nico Rosberg is finished in Designo Cashmere White Magno, while the detachable body parts such as the door handles, wheels, lettering, fins, insert in the front bumper, surround for the daytime running lights, window trim and the spoiler lip in the boot lid is finished in Designo Himalayas Grey.

Just like on the other model, the tailpipe trim is in chromed black. The interior shows Designo Exclusive Style leather in titanium grey, while the Basalt Grey topstitching completes the look on the steering wheel, door beltlines, soft-top cover and upper part of the instrument panel.

Furthermore, the lower part of the instrument panel is finished in Deep White Nappa leather, just like the console and door panels, while the trim parts show a Designo Cashmere White Magno finish. Under the hood, there is a standard 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine that produces 585 hp (430 kW) and 900 Nm of torque.

Both models offer a top speed electronically limited at 300 km/h or 186 mph. Both the Lewis Hamilton and the Nico Rosberg model have the same top-flight specification and this means that they arrive with the AMG Driver’s package, AMG sports suspension, AIRSCARF, the Bang & Olufsen BeoSound AMG sound system, a panoramic vario-roof with MAGIC SKY CONTROL, as well as AMG sports seats and much, much more.

Pricing could be a problem, as each vehicle is priced at 320,110 euros including the 19% VAT in Germany. Still, Mercedes-Benz says that you can get both of them for 629,510 euros. Now, that’s a Black Friday deal! [source: Mercedes-Benz]
