Benz C 63 AMG Concept 358

At the 2010 Australian International Motor Show, which begins today, Mercedes-Benz is showcasing two unique AMG vehicles, a C 63 AMG called Concept 358 and a special-finish SLS AMG, built exclusively for the show.

The Concept 358 is the only C 63 AMG in the world to be painted in designo Pearl Orange paint, and includes the AMG Performance Package Plus, which brings the power output up to a neat 480 hp (or 358 kw, which gives the car its moniker).

Magno Black SLS AMG

Besides Package Plus, which contains a new engine management and forged pistons adopted from the SLS AMG, as well as new connecting rods and a lightweight crankshaft, the C 63 AMG in Sydney features unique 19-inch, multi-spoke alloy wheels in black, Keyless-Go and extended designo leather appointments in the cabin.

As for the SLS AMG, it’s the first and currently the only one to be painted in designo magno Night Black, with red highlights both externally and internally to lend it an even more distinct flavour. Specially commissioned for the show, both vehicles highlight Australia’s importance for the brand – no surprise at all, since the country is the fifth largest AMG market in the world.
