Moreover, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate costs 77,755 euros, while the C63 S Estate is priced from 86,037 euros. Still, if you believe you need a special version of the new vehicle, the company will offer the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 Edition 1 for 90,321 euros, while the C63 Estate Edition 1 costs 91,987 euros, in Germany including 19% VAT.
Furthermore, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Edition 1 comes with a price tag of 96,152 euros with the C63 S Estate Edition 1 priced at 97,818 euros, including 19% VAT. For those who don’t know, the Edition 1 adds a combination of exclusive design and equipment features. First of all, Mercedes-AMG offers six exterior paint finishes: Polar White, Designo Diamond White Bright, Iridium Silver Metallic, Palladium Silver Metallic, Obsidian Black Metallic and the special AMG-specific finish Designo Iridium Silver Magno.
The Edition 1 models will be easily distinguished in traffic thanks to the Night package with chrome-plated tailpipe trim elements. The Night package includes the A-wing and trim strip in high-gloss black, exterior mirror housings in high-gloss black, side sills in high-gloss black, beltline trim strip and window surrounds in high-gloss black, radiator grille with twin louvre in silver chrome and heat-insulating dark-tinted glass from the B-pillar to the rear.
Moreover, the saloon gets a spoiler lip in high-gloss black. Both models receive 19-inch forged wheels in a cross-spoke design, painted in matt black with red-painted rim flange.
The radiator grille and exterior mirrors get red highlights (adhesive foil), while on each side the vehicles feature stripes in matt graphite grey (adhesive foil). Inside there are performance seats, door panels and armrests featuring a diamond-pattern black nappa leather with red topstitching, red design seatbelts and a flat-bottomed steering wheel finished in Dinamica microfiber featuring a wheel bezel in silver chrome with ‘Edition 1’ lettering as well as silver-coloured aluminum shift paddles.
In addition, the interior features trim in red pepper carbon fiber and light longitudinal-grain aluminum as well as black floor mats with ‘AMG’ lettering and red piping.
The design of the V8-powered Mercedes-AMG C63 adheres to a mantra in which form follows performance. Thus, the design of the C63 doesn’t just reflect its high-tech nature, but also demonstrates its inspiration from motorsport. Combining sensual clarity with stylish sportiness, the new C63 inspires onlookers. Although both Saloon and Estate are visually recognizable as AMG models, the C63 and C63 S are distinguished through specific design elements in their exteriors.
Essentially, the new AMG C63 is a superior version of the C-Class that has retained its sensual surfaces and its reduced, minimalist forms, while boasting of added positive tension and a dynamic character.
Its distinct front end is now longer by 54 mm and matches its powerful V8 engine and wider track. Its aluminum front wings, meanwhile, are now wider by 14 mm. "V8 BITURBO" lettering is found on this front end. Moreover, Mercedes reinforced certain sections of the body-in-white structure, thereby compensating for the intense longitudinal and transverse forces coming from the drivetrain and running gear.
On the front end, the new AMG C63 is marked by a long aluminum bonnet with two characteristic power domes, which along with the wider wings, lend the car a muscular appearance.
Meanwhile, the arrow-shaped "twin blade" radiator grille with AMG lettering has been positioned low down to reduce the visual center of gravity of the new C63. Moreover, Mercedes has given the "A-wing" of the C63 a three-dimensional form. This A-wing guides airflow to the three cooling air intakes while channels air to the cooling module. A front splitter on the lower edge of the front skirt helps trim aerodynamic lift.
