How do you celebrate 18 pole positions,
12 fastest laps and 31 podium finishes?
To celebrate Mercedes-Benz’ 2014
World Championship Formula 1
Victory, the auto maker decided to
create two limited edition SL63 AMG.
Lewis Hamilton and runner-up Nico
Rosberg beat previous record set by
McLaren in 1988 with their spectacular
performances in this year’s Formua 1
league. The two exquisite models of
the SL 63 AMG were created in
conjunction with the victors
themselves.
While Hamilton chose black as his base
color, Rosberg went with white. Lewis’
SL 63 AMG has a special paint finish
called Designo Night Black Magno
combined with gold-colored lettering,
fins and stripes on the rear bumper.
The tailpipe trim is in chromed black.
Black and gold are also prominent in
the interior as well with the SL 63 AMG
having gold-colored-themed stitches on
its seats in black nappa leather, the
instrument panel and center console
were not spared, as well as gold-
colored elements such as the air vents,
door handles and shift paddles.
Nico’sMercedes SL 63 AMG contrasts
with Hamilton’s, as the car wears a
Designo Cashmere White Magno paint
which contrasts with elements painted
in Designo Himalayas Grey. Just like on
Hamilton’s car, the tailpipe trim is in
chrome black.
On the inside, Designo Exclusive Style
leather in titanium grey are used for
the seats, steering wheel, door
beltlines, soft-top cover and the upper
part of the instrument panel. The lower
part of the instrument panel is done in
contrasting deep white nappa leather,
including the centre console and door
panels.
Under the bonnet is a 47horsepower
increase taking it up to 577hp and 664
pound-feet-of torque using a 5.5-liter
V8 biturbo engine.  This takes top
speed to 300 km/h (186 mph).
Both cars are offered with the AMG
Driver’s package, AMG sports
suspension, Airscarf, the Bang &
Olufsen BeoSound AMG sound system,
a panoramic vario-roof with Magic Sky
Control, as well as AMG sports seats,
numerous assistance systems, amongst
others.
Initially, the cars will only be sold as a
pair for €629,510 ($784,885), then sold
as a unit from €320,110 ($397,790) each.
For the price you’re paying some stuff
will be thrown in for free, a helmet
worn by Lewis Hamilton or Nico
Rosberg, a Nico Rosberg or Lewis

by both drivers and an invitation to the
opening race of the 2015 season, in
Melbourne.
According to Mercedes-Benz, every
vehicle made are collector’s editions
with only 19 black and 19 white models
