2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 S Edition 1 Coupe

Well, this is certainly one way to stick out. What we are looking at today is a Mercedes-AMG C63 S Edition 1 … edition. What exactly does that mean? It is a C63 S AMG coupe with Mango Selenite matte grey paint, some different bodywork, and a whole lot of yellow accents everywhere. If you do not like yellow, this is not your car. Performance improvement over the standard car? Nah. This is just about extra flash. Truth be told, the C63 S is already extremely impressive with 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque good for a 0-60 time in under four seconds. You know what that means. Bring your wallet.

Selling my 2017 C63 S AMG Edition 1. I purchased this car as an addition to my european car collection as it is limited. 2017 was the last production year w/ a V8 engine. This Edition 1 pretty much has every option that was available. Stored indoors in a climate controlled warehouse year-round. I am selling for personal reasons.

– Designo Selenite Grey Magno (Matte). Inspired by the 2016 MB DTM racing colors.

I just don’t get stuff like this. Even as a person who is under 40 years of age, this does not appeal to me at all. I understand the buying demographic for the C-Class trends lower, but strange racing stripes that vaguely pay tribute to a DTM car that no one except the most hardcore racing fans know about is a real stretch to retail buyers. The saving grace on this car is the powertrain and those beefy (and expensive) carbon-ceramic brakes, but everything else is a very hard pass for me.

This one seems like it was put away as an “investment” with just under 300 miles, and now it has an asking price way over its original sticker at $114,000. I believe these had a sticker price of over $90,000, so factoring in the inflation, taxes, and whatever else it took to keep this car, that $114,000 probably isn’t much of a profit at all. In terms of value today, I think it would be very tough pill to swallow to claim this was a good deal.

  1. The cosmetics look like they were done by a stoned 16 year old in his driveway. Like you, I don’t know who MB meant this for. Kids with rich parents, I guess, since I can’t picture anyone over 24 not feeling ridiculous in this.

  2. That picture of the instrument cluster makes it look like Marvin the Martian is pissed at me. https://versus-compendium.fandom.com/wiki/Marvin_the_Martian?file=Marvin.png

  3. I agree…terrible color combo…Yellow stripes on a street car?? …in any event I really dislike matte paint. Looks like someone forgot to clearcoat it…

  4. This rivals the purple and yellow Corvette Indy 500 Pace Car for ugliest special edition ever. The stealth sedan version of this is the one I’d buy.
