Mercedes-AMG C 63 S E Performance F1 Edition breaks cover
Mercedes-AMG has taken the wraps off the F1 Edition of the C 63 S E Performance for the global markets. The special edition sedan will be available only for a year. The car retains the overall design from the standard model and features an exclusive Manufaktur Alpine Gray Uni paint scheme with bright red-colored accents. It gets a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, petrol-hybrid powertrain.
Why does this story matter?
- Ever since the W205-based C 63 sedan made its debut in 2015, it is regarded as one of the most driver-focused vehicles around the world.
- Mercedes-Benz's AMG performance division has now updated the model with a petrol-hybrid powertrain to showcase its commitment to a green future.
- The new F1 Edition gives the sedan a more eye-catching appearance and features AMG's Aerodynamics and Night Packages.
