Mercedes-Benz Was Extremely Lazy With This Special Edition

Special Edition

It looks like an afterthought.

Being one of the oldest automakers in the business is quite an accomplishment and Mercedes-Benz is celebrating that fact the only way it can. To commemorate its 130th anniversary of “inventing the automobile,” the automaker revealed the Mercedes-AMG S63 4Matic Cabriolet “Edition 130” at the Detroit Auto Show. From what we can tell, the special edition looks like a regular S63 AMG Cabriolet, but don’t tell Mercedes that. Even if the vehicle looks similar to the regular model, it does have some minor upgrades.

The Edition 130 has a high-gloss “alubeam silver” special exterior color, matte black 21-inch 10-spoke wheels with high-sheen rim flanges and a Bordeaux red fabric top. The interior of the vehicle also has custom touches and comes with the exclusive Designo nappa leather upholstery, while the trim elements can be finished in piano black or AMG carbon fiber. For an added touch of luxury, every unit comes with a bespoke AMG indoor cover with embroidered lettering with the model specific number out of 130. Every buyer also gets a “Welcome Package” that includes an Edition 130 badge key ring and an aluminum box to house the vehicle’s key in.

No major changes have been made to the vehicle’s powertrain as the Special Edition comes with the same 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 as the regular S63 AMG. Power is still rated at 577 horsepower and 663 lb-ft of torque, which aids the vehicle in getting to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds. Only 130 units of the Edition 130 will be built and every vehicle will come with a badge in the center console to highlight the vehicle’s exclusivity. Pricing for individuals in Germany will start at $246,577 when it hits the market in April 2016.
