2017 Mercedes-AMG Coupe 4Matic+ Yellow Night Edition costs $237,688

Article by Christian A., on October 26, 2017

Last month at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, we witnessed the debut of the refreshed S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet. And finally, Mercedes-Benz has begun taking orders of these models in Europe, and deliveries will begin in January next year. But apart from that, we got another surprise from Mercedes-AMG as they revealed a limited S63 Coupe 4Matic+ Yellow Night Edition. And this unique model will only be available for six months, with a starting price of 202,121.50 euros ($237,688).

The automaker did not just come up with random names for these models, and the reason why it has the word “night” in its name is because customers can get the version of the S63 Coupe finished in either Selenite Grey Magno or Night Black Magno. The “yellow” in its name, on the other hand, refers to the yellow trims it will get on the mirror housings and the brake calipers. The S63 Coupe then gets a set of seven set double-spoke black wheels.

Obviously, this is more than just the paint job. The Yellow Night Edition was designed with the Aerodynamics Package that comes with a larger front splitter and lip spoiler on the trunk. The aerodynamic parts are finished in high-gloss black, but customers can get the Carbon Fiber Package if they prefer these parts to be made of carbon fiber. The coupe also gets a set of stripes that stretch along the lower edges on both sides of the car.

Inside the cabin, the Yellow Night Edition gets yellow accents on the sides. Yellow bits and pieces could be found on the sport seats, the steering wheel, instrument panel, the door panels, armrests, center console and the floor mats. To give the yellow some contrast, there is a mix of matte-finished carbon fiber and black piano lacquer - overall giving it a sportier look. The cabin is also covered in diamond-patterned Nappa leather.

Going back to the aforementioned S-Class Coupe and Cabriolet, the refreshed models in AMG-trim now feature Mercedes-AMG’s Panamericana grille. Both models now get a 4.0 liter biturbo V8 with 604 horsepower (450 kilowatts) and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-metres) of torque. On the other hand, the S65 remains with the same 6.0 liter biturbo V12 that carries out 621 horsepower (463 kilowatts) and 737 pound-feet (1,000 Newton metres) of torque.

So, what do you think of the S63 Coupe 4matic+ Yellow Night Edition? Would you pay $237,688 for a fully equipped S63? If you are interested, you better make up your mind quickly because you only have six months to get this special model.
