The last of the naturally aspirated
Only in South Africa. Only now. These 10 Viper Green Legacy Editions are the last of their kind. They are tributes to the legendary C63 AMG Coupé that shaped the image of AMG today.
The C63 AMG Coupé was fabled for the sound of its naturally aspirated V8 6.2 litre engine and the readiness to let the tail break out to go sideways around the corners.
The C63 Legacy Edition was always something for me to see. There was something about that Viper Green paint and huge spoiler that loved so much. Maybe it was the 373kW and 610Nm of torque engine that revved in me,or the fact that it is 1 of 10 in SA.
I was lucky enough just to see such a rare monster, but 10 times better is that I got to do a photoshoot of it. Thanks to Cody and Cyan. The insane piece of art looks absolutely wicked in Viper Green (matte) with a huge wing.
The unique Legacy Edition is an athletically shaped vehicle with a confident and muscular appearance, set apart from any other Mercedes-AMG by its unique colour and exclusive appointments in the interior.
Viper Green cloaks the C 63 AMG Coupé Legacy Edition 1 of 10’s muscular shoulders, flashes over the crouched silhouette, races along the short overhangs and long hood, streaking along the raked windshield and elongated roof. The eye-catching race-car exterior is an exclusive statement of command and prowess that will set you and your Legacy Edition apart.
From the AMG Performance steering wheel with aluminium gear-shift paddles and light-coloured contrasting topstitching, to the rubber studded aluminium sports pedals to the racing head restraints and deep side bolster, the Legacy Edition’s style and athleticism is apparent throughout the cockpit. It’s an interior that evokes emotion. It can be yours today.
Handcrafted and signed by its own master engine builder, the V-8 heart of the Legacy Edition generates its historic output: 373kW and 610Nm of torque.
The power that this car produces is absolutely insane, seeing it with my own eyes, that is something I really like and enjoy. I prefer the 507 edition rather than the new C63s.
Engineered by AMG, it features such race-proven technology as a rigid one-piece aluminium bedplate, plasma-sprayed cylinder bores, and self-adjusting bucket-type valve followers. With an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed transmission and an exhaust note of symphonic proportions, 100km/h arrives in just 4.2 seconds. And yet its refinement makes the Legacy Edition a performance car you can enjoy every day.
