Mercedes-Benz has come up with a limited-edition C63 variant, and this one is only for the Canadian market. Created by the AMG Performance Centre in Affalterbach, Germany, the AMG Affalterbach Edition is limited to just 30 units, and features unique styling cues and an impressive list of special equipment that have never been offered before on a C63 AMG.

It’s finished in a highly distinctive designo MAGNO Allanite Grey paintwork, and the car’s unique appearance is further distinguished by high-performance AMG brakes with red calipers, 19-inch AMG multi-spoke alloy wheels in black, carbon-fibre mirror housings and a rear lip spoiler.

The 6.2-litre V8 pot remains as is, and with the AMG P31 Development Package strapped on, speed limiter removed and a limited-slip diff thrown in, offers 481 hp and 600Nm of torque here, as well as a 0-100 kph time of 4.4 seconds.

The interior features the Affalterbach logo prominently displayed on the gearshift lever and embossed on the headrests, and red contrast stitching adorns the black AMG Nappa leather sport seats. Also to be found in the Canuck version are AMG carbon-fibre trim, floor mats with red leather piping and a special Affalterbach Edition badge which identifies every car with its unique “1 of 30” designation.

Plenty else in the way of equipment – the car features each element from the C63 AMG Premium Package, and the list reads like this: a rear view camera, Parktronic, Comand APS with HDD Navigation and DVD Changer, multi-media interface, rear window sunshade, harman/kardon LOGIC7 surround sound system and Keyless-Go.
