Mercedes-AMG has decided to launch the S63 4MATIC Cabriolet 130 Edition limited model at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Created to mark the 130th anniversary of the invention of the automobile in 1886, the convertible comes exclusively in alubeam silver with contrasting Bordeaux red fabric roof and matt black 20-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels.
Step inside the cabin and you will find nappa leather upholstery in Bengal red/black or crystal grey/black, as well as trim elements in black piano lacquer. Red brake calipers and floor mats with Bengal red or crystal grey edging complete the visual impression. Special badges on the center console and the steering wheel show the production number of each example.
Speaking of production, the 130 Edition will be limited to only 130 copies with sales scheduled to start in April. The price list in Germany starts at $246,589 (€226,457).
Mercedes-AMG says that every customer will receive a tailor-made AMG indoor car cover to “protect this valuable vehicle from dust in the garage,” while at the handover of the keys clients will also get the Welcome Package with an Edition 130 badge key ring and an aluminium box
As an S63 model, the Cabriolet comes with a 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine delivering 585 horsepower and 665 pound feet of torque. Power is sent through a 9-speed automatic gearbox and a 4MATIC system to all four wheels, providing a 0-62 miles per hour acceleration in only 3.9 seconds. Stopping power is provided by a high performance composite brake system.
