Mercedes has gone to the AMG goodies bin to put together a special Edition 1 model of the coming new 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 sedan. The special edition, which will be sold only for the first model year, adds appearance extras to the top S performance trim level for buyers for whom the sleek new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is not special enough to impress the neighbors.
The Edition 1 is primarily an appearance package for the Mercedes-AMG GT S, icing on the model that already comes equipped with a 630-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8, AMG nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive with torque distribution and Drift mode. Zero-to-60 mph is estimated at a neck-snapping 3.1 seconds.
What's Special About the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S Edition 1?
- Mercedes Designo-line matte dark-gray paint with a lighter gray driver-side racing stripe and dynamic striping on the lower doors (OK, the striping isn't that special. It looks to me like gratuitous graffiti on this gorgeous "four-door coupe.")
- An AMG Aerodynamics Package that includes a large and aggressive front bumper and adjustable-angle rear spoiler
- Mercedes-AMG 21-inch forged alloy wheels with black accent paint
- AMG Performance seats with black and gray Nappa leather upholstery, yellow contrast stitching and yellow (yes!) seat belts
- A microfiber-wrapped AMG Performance steering wheel with yellow stitching
- More Nappa leather and contrast stitching on the dashboard, doors, armrests and center console
- Matte carbon-fiber interior trim
- Mercedes' Air Balance Package, which filters and ionizes the cabin and adds your choice of aromatherapy scents, including the dedicated AMG #63 fragrance
The Edition 1 will debut this weekend at the ADAC Zurich 24-Hour Race at Germany's Nurburgring race track. The AMG GT 63 and 63 S trim levels will go on sale in early 2019; the AMG GT 53 will arrive in mid-2019. Pricing has not been announced.
