Hamilton and Rosberg Co-Create only 19 units of the 585-hp Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG special edition
To celebrate their F1 World Championship dominance, Mercedes-Benz have commissioned Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg to co-create two special editions of the SL 63 AMG, with Rosberg choosing white and Hamilton going with a black for their respective versions, each offering an elegant and bolder rendition, respectively.
Only 19 units of this SL 63 AMG will be produced — each one dedicated to one of the 19 Formula 1 tracks used this year; hence, each car is one-of-a-kind. Hamilton and Rosberg, combined, finished first in 16 of the 19 races this year.
Each car is powered by the AMG 5.5L V8 putting down 585-hp with top-speed reaching 300 km/h. Both the Lewis Hamilton and the Nico Rosberg model have the same top-flight specification. It includes the AMG Driver’s package, numerous assistance systems, 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 and much, much more.
Each Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG F1 Special Edition car will cost €320,110. Want both? Expect to pay €629,510 for the pair.
Lewis Hamilton’s Black SL 63 AMG
Lewis’ version comes in the special paint finish designo night black magno which can be found on such detachable body parts as the exterior mirrors, door handles and rims as well. Gold-coloured lettering, fins and stripes on the rear bumper impart a feeling of power. The tailpipe trim is in chromed black. Black and gold dominate the interior, too: gold-coloured stitching adorns the seats in black nappa leather, the instrument panel and centre console are also covered in black designo Exclusive nappa leather, with the trim parts gleaming in gold.
Nico Rosberg’s White SL 63 AMG
Rosberg’s SL provides an elegant contrast. With the main body finished in designo cashmere white magno, the detachable body parts such as the door handles, wheels, lettering, fins, the insert in the front bumper, surround for the daytime running lamps, window trim and the spoiler lip in the boot lid provide a finely-judged contrast in designo himalayas grey. Both Formula 1 drivers were in agreement when it came to the tailpipe trim: it is in chromed black for the white car, too.
Designo Exclusive Style leather in titanium grey sets the tone for the interior in the Nico Rosberg model. It adorns the seats, which have basalt grey topstitching, the steering wheel, the door beltlines, the soft-top cover and also the upper part of the instrument panel. The lower part of the instrument panel is finished in deep white nappa leather, as are the centre console and the door panels. The trim parts gleam in designo cashmere white magno.
