Sure we feature a fair amount of young classics on our page but we can’t deny how amazing modern AMG’s have become. One of our favorites was sent to us this week by the owner and seller of a very clean 2017 C63S Edition 1. This listing is currently advertised here on MB World for $69,000 showing only 16k miles on the clock.
Per the infamous “Launch Edition” code, LE cars have traditionally come loaded to the hilt with options and are typically finished in exclusive paint and trim packages (Sometimes Designo). The C63S Edition 1 was no exception but it definitely broke the mold in terms of styling and availability. Every Edition 1 received Designo Selenite Gray Magno paint and came accented with an off-center yellow stripe, yellow accented wheels, and a matching interior with an exclusive steering wheel and yellow diamond stitched deep bucket seats. The wheel choice was unusual for AMG as this AMG was factory equipped with 19 inch wheels in the front and 20 inches in the rear. Regarding exclusivity, the Edition 1 was available as a package vs a limited-run example. This total package retailed for $16,000 on top of MSRP.
This specific car is a little more special then the rest given the tasteful modifications made by the seller. The exterior of the car has been “de-yellowed” and we have to say, it seems to do the car justice. No yellow stripe and no yellow outlines on the wheels lend to the idea that this C63s is more serious than the rest. The interior still shows light splashes of yellow to break up all the blacks and greys. The front grille has been swapped out to the newer (2019+) style but the engine and drivetrain remain stock. Keep in mind stock for this car is still a stout 503 horsepower out of the twin turbo 4.0 V8, the same engine found in the AMG GTS (save for the C63S is wet sump, vs dry in the GT).
The seller notes the car has been perfectly kept, garaged, and maintained. A CPO warranty is still transferable with the car showing full coverage until 2023. Although we can’t see far enough into the future to know whether or not these will be highly collectible, they certainly are special and this specific C63S seems to be at the top of the list if you’re shopping for a W205 AMG.
