Lightbulb Mercedes-Benz releases C63 AMG Affalterbach Edition for Canada

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Affalterbach Edition - Click above for high-res image gallery

We've said it before and we'll say it again: The Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is an absolutely stunning piece of machinery. We recently had a chance to steer a C63 fitted with the P31 Development Package around the greater Detroit area, and it now looks like our friends to the north are getting a special edition of Merc's AMG atom bomb all for themselves.

Dubbed the Affalterbach Edition (it's named after the German town in which AMG's skunkworks reside), this C63 wears a unique Magno Allanite Grey paint that is accented with red brake calipers, 19-inch black alloy wheels, carbon fiber mirror shells and a subtle lip spoiler. No tweaks have been made to the C63's powertrain, but the Affalterbach edition comes standard with the normally optional AMG Performance Package, meaning there's 481 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque on tap. Sprints to 62 miles per hour will be accomplished in a tidy 4.4 seconds.

Inside, the Affalterbach treatment includes things like AMG sport seats wrapped in Nappa leather, red contrast stitching, carbon fiber trim, and special edition logos placed throughout the cabin. Only 30 units will be sold in the Great White North, starting from $81,500 Canadian when it goes on sale in the spring. Follow the jump for Mercedes-Benz's official release.
