Mercedes-AMG offers three new edition models at 2017 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian A., on February 23, 2017

Mercedes-AMG will be offering three new special edition models with the goal of offering maximum exclusivity and customization. These are the Edition 50, Ocean Blue Edition, and Night Edition.

With regards to releasing three special models, Mercedes-AMG GmbH CEO Tobias Moers started by saying that 2016 was by far the best year for the company. With 2017 being an anniversary year, he added, the brand hopes to utilize the moment to attract more customers.

The new Editions make this possible and with this, customers are faced with a wider range of selection when it comes to individual performance models, he continued.

The Editions will be officially presented during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50

The Edition 50 special model is made specifically for the GT C Roadster. With only 500 units to be made, the name is taken from the fact that the brand will be celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. To make sure that it is easily recognizable as the Edition 50, two special finishes will be offered which are designo cashmere white magno and designo graphite grey magno.

Making its look even more unique is the use of black chrome accents on a number of features like the front splitter, side skirt trim, and the trim elements of the exhaust tailpipe, to name a few.

Completing the look are the forged cross-spoke AMG wheels whose surface complements the elements of the exterior that are in black chrome. On the inside, it follows a theme of silver and black contrast. For those who want to add a more athletic feel to it, the AMG Interior Night package is offered as an option where the door sill panels, shift paddles, and the spokes on the steering wheel are in black.

Mercedes-AMG C63 Cabrio Ocean Blue Edition

Next on the list is the Ocean Blue Edition for the C 63 Cabriolet and C 63 S Cabriolet. With 150 units to be manufactured, this edition was made for customers who are more oriented on design and focus more on fashion.

Exclusive for this edition is the fabric acoustic soft top coming in deep ocean blue. This same shade can also be seen on other details of the vehicle such as the surrounds of its hubcaps and the trim strips that are on the front apron and the rear apron.

Looking on the inside, one will definitely immediately see that the interior is in light crystal grey. One can observe nappa leather having that luxurious diamond quilting that is contrasted by the deep ocean blue topstitching.

Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe Night Edition

Finally there is the Night Edition offered for the C 43 4MATIC Coupé and Cabriolet. This will be the first time a cabriolet will have some details of the exterior in black. Examples include the side skirts, rear apron, and the trim strips on its front splitter.

The spoiler lip and trim elements of the tailpipe are also in black. A major highlight is its set of light-alloy multi-spoke 19-inch wheels in matt black. This same theme can be seen on the interior as well.

So we can now offer our customers an even wider choice of individual performance models", explained Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Exclusive equipment package: Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50

The new AMG GT C Roadster is, like the new AMG GT C, also available as an exclusively equipped Edition 50 special model in a limited quantity of 500 cars worldwide. It marks the landmark year of the company, which was founded in 1967 and celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2017.

* Fuel consumption combined: 11.4 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 259 g/km
** Fuel consumption combined: 9.3-8.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 218-208 g/km

At first glance the Edition 50 can be recognised by the two special paint finishes in designo graphite grey magno or designo cashmere white magno. Black chrome accents deliver a unique look. They are applied to the side skirt trim, the front splitter, the trim strips in the air intakes of the Panamericana grille, the fins on the side air outlets in the front wings, the trim on the rear diffuser and the exhaust tailpipe trim elements. The surface of the cross-spoke AMG forged wheels has been harmonised with the black chrome elements of the exterior.

The interior is marked by a contrast between black and silver. This colour scheme is followed not only by the trim in STYLE Exclusive nappa leather in silver pearl/black with grey diamond-patterned contrasting topstitching, but also by the black AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfibre with grey contrasting topstitching, 12 o'clock mark in silver pearl, "Edition 50" lettering plus a note on the limitation.

To emphasise the sporty character, the Edition comes as standard with the AMG Interior Night package, which includes steering wheel spokes, shift paddles and door sill panels in black. The interplay between light and dark is further accentuated by silver seat belts and black chrome trim. The head restraint of the AMG Performance seat is embossed with "GT Edition 50".

Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet Ocean Blue Edition

The Ocean Blue Edition for the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet and C 63 S Cabriolet is designed for a particularly design-oriented and fashion-conscious target group and limited to 150 units worldwide. The new colour deep ocean blue for the fabric acoustic soft top is exclusively earmarked for this new Edition. The exclusive colour shade is featured on numerous further details on the car, such as the trim strips on the front and rear apron, the surrounds on the hub caps, the contrasting topstitching in the crystal grey interior plus the analogue clock in an IWC design.

The paint finishes designo cashmere white magno and designo selenite grey magno are available for the exterior. The front apron in an A‑wing design, the exterior mirror housings, the side sill panels plus the spoiler lip are painted in the vehicle colour, underlining the elegant character of the Edition. The AMG forged wheels in a cross-spoke design in size 19 inches at the front/20 inches at the rear are painted in titanium grey.

In the interior, the light, crystal grey interior in nappa leather with lavish diamond quilting and deep ocean blue contrasting topstitching immediately catches the eye. It is combined with trim in matt silver glass fibre (high-gloss carbon fibre as a no-cost option) with the Edition badge in the centre console. The fine impression is reinforced by the steering wheel with its black rim, featuring a flattened bottom section, in nappa leather and silver-coloured buttons: it comes from the Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC Cabriolet.

As standard the seats are fitted with the AIRSCARF neck-level heating and climatised seats, ensuring optimum comfort in all weather conditions. Attention to detail is evident in the AMG badges in the backrests of the front seats and the embossed AMG emblems in the front head restraints.

Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé and Cabriolet Night Edition

On the Night Edition for the Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé and Cabriolet black details add fine flourishes. So for the first time the cabriolet too is available with black exterior details. The diamond radiator grille sports black dots. The trim strips on the front splitter, on the rear apron and the side skirts are also painted in black. The same applies to the spoiler lip on the boot lid and the tailpipe trim elements on the exhaust system.

The overall impression is influenced by the 19-inch multi-spoke light-alloy wheels, which are painted in matt black for the first time and feature high-sheen rim flanges as a contrast.

The Edition theme continues in the interior. The rim of the Performance steering wheel, in nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre, with its flattened bottom section is also in black, and a badge on the centre console flags up the Night Edition.

All Editions can be ordered from 6th March 2017. Mercedes-AMG C 63 Cabriolet and C 63 S Cabriolet Ocean Blue Edition, Mercedes-AMG C 43 4MATIC Coupé and Cabriolet Night Edition will be delivered from June 2017, the first units of the Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster Edition 50 will be with customers from July 2017.
