Special-edition Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG cars to celebrate F1 title

By ,

Thanks to Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes-Benz won the Formula 1 title this year. The German automaker wanted to celebrate the feat by creating two special-edition models. 

These SL 63 AMGs, known as the World Championship 2014 Collector's Edition models, will each be built in just 19 examples, representing the number of races held this season. The car Hamilton helped design is black, while runner-up Nico Rosberg’s car is white (and bears his signature on the dash). 

Moreover, each unit will feature individual numbering as well as the name and layout of the specific race track it represents.

In any case, you'll find a twin-turbocharged 5.5L V8 engine producing 585 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. This is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed automatic transmission and limited-slip differential.

Pricing for the Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG World Championship 2014 Collector's Edition has yet to be announced. You might want to rush to order one before they sell out.
