Mercedes-AMG S63 4MATIC Cabriolet ‘Edition 130’ Debuts in Detroit
It was 130 years ago that Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler came up with the invention of the first automobile. Mercedes-Benz has decided to commemorate that occasion with a special edition Mercedes-AMG S63 4MATIC, which was revealed today at the North American International Auto Show.
Dubbed the Mercedes-AMG S63 4MATIC Cabriolet “Edition 130,” this special-edition Mercedes will feature a high-gloss “Alubeam silver” paint finish, custom red fabric top, 5-twin-spoke 20-inch forged alloy wheels, Nappa leather upholstery from Designo, and special “Edition 130” badging that can be found on the steering wheel.
Under the hood, the Mercedes-AMG S63 4MATIC Cabriolet ‘Edition 130’ comes equipped with a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine, rated at 557 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. The vehicle is electronically limited to 186 mph, but it can still rocket from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
The German automobile manufacturer will produce only 130 of these special edition Mercedes-AMG S63 4MATICs, with US sales starting in the spring of 2016. Buyers will also receive a special car cover and aluminum box in which to store the car keys.
“The first automobiles from Carl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler were open vehicles,” said Tobias Moers, chairman of the board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.” Mercedes-AMG honors this achievement of the founding fathers with this highly exclusive cabriolet, and demonstrates the developments the automobile has undergone in the last 130 years, developments which would have been inconceivable at that time.”
