Aussie market gets limited edition super-saloon
7 August 2009

Mercedes has launched a limited edition C63 AMG Edition 63 for the Australian market.

Just 63 examples of the 451bhp performance saloon will be made and each model gets a range of extra equipment over the standard car.

The Edition 63 gets unique 19-inch DTM-style alloys, three colour choices (platinum black, mystic white, and allanite grey), and dark tinted privacy glass for estate models.

Inside, it features two different upholstery choices (designo sand or designo classic red), black-leather trim, illuminated door sills, AMG floor mats, and an AMG gearknob.

The only performance upgrade is the addition of an AMG locking differential, which Mercedes claims boosts rear grip when accelerating out of corners.

Prices for the Edition 63 start at $169,900 AUD (£85,000) for the saloon and $172,900 AUD (£86,500) for the estate. It is on sale now.
