The boffins at Mercedes-AMG recently unveiled the last hurrah of the monstrous E 63 S 4Matic+ (W213 and S213) in the form of Final Edition model. The special-edition model boasts a refined appearance and extensive standard equipment making the Final Edition a unique combination of performance and luxury.
Final Edition exterior
The Final Edition is available exclusively in matt graphite grey magno paint. It’s fitted with aerodynamically optimised, high-sheen black with gloss-tinted clearcoat 20-inch AMG forged wheels in a cross-spoke design emphasising the special status, as do the AMG emblem on the C-pillar and the foiling on the sides of the car.
Added to this is the AMG Night Package. It includes numerous exterior elements in high-gloss black: the front splitter of the AMG front apron, the inserts of the AMG side sill panels, the trim element in the front wings, the beltline trim strips and window surrounds, the outside mirror housings and the trim strip of the AMG rear apron. Also included in the package is heat-insulating dark tinted glass from the B-pillar. Two trapezoidal, black chrome twin tailpipe trims form the matching finish at the rear. Carbon Packages I and II can be ordered as options.
Final Edition interior
The ambient lighting projects the AMG brand logo in LED technology next to the open side doors. The one-off character continues inside. It’s fitted with AMG Performance seats which are said to offer perfect lateral support for dynamic driving manoeuvres – combined with aesthetics and comfort: all seat positions, including the seat cushions, can be electrically adjusted to perfectly suit the driver’s physique.
The integrated seat heating are said to ensure a comfortable driving experience as quickly as possible, even in cool temperatures. And the upholstery in fine AMG nappa leather titanium grey pearl/black with yellow contrasting stitching emphasises the sporty character. The instrument panel and beltline trim in high-quality nappa leather lend the interior even more exclusivity.
Other tell-tales separating the Final Edition model from the regular E 63 S are AMG Performance steering wheel in black nappa leather/microfibre Dinamica and yellow contrasting stitching, AMG trim elements in carbon on the centre console, black AMG brushed stainless steel door sill trims with yellow illuminated “AMG” lettering and black floor mats with AMG lettering and yellow contrasting stitching.
On the performance side of things, nothing has changed. It’s still powered by a 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine making 450 kW and 850 Nm. It sends its power to through the automaker’s fully variable all-wheel drive which also includes Drift Mode.
As mentioned above, only 999 units of the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4Matic+ Final Edition will be made. Mercedes-Benz South Africa is yet to confirm if any units have been reserved for SA.
