The AMG Performance Studio has developed a new limited edition vehicle; the exclusive SL63 AMG Edition IWC. Limited to a total of 200 units worldwide, with 10 destined for Canada, the new roadster features an eye-catching designo magno Kashmir white finish and an AMG exterior carbon package with a matte surface. The interior is fitted with carbon matte trim and Tobago Brown nappa leather upholstery. In addition, the vehicle features the AMG Performance package to ensure unparalleled handling. All SL63 AMG Edition IWC vehicles will be delivered to customers with an exquisite "Grosser Ingenieur" (Great Engineer) watch from the renowned Swiss watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen.
The SL63 AMG Edition IWC will be the first vehicle to be offered with the all-new designo magno Kashmir white finish. Carbon matte finish on the trailing edge, the diffusor insert in the lower back panel, and the side air vents create an attractive contrast to this beautiful white finish.
The interior remains in stylistic sync with carbon matte trim on the centre console and the interior door panels. This is complemented by the Tobago Brown nappa leather upholstery on the electronically adjustable AMG sports seats, which feature multicontour and memory functions, heating, an AMG-specific perforation pattern, and AMG badges. The vehicle's limited edition status is discreetly emphasized by black AMG floormats with Tobago Brown leather piping, AMG door sills with white illuminated AMG lettering, and the IWC logo on the lid of the center console.
To ensure the driver remains in perfect control of the vehicle, the two-tone AMG Performance steering wheel has a reduced diameter, a rim that's flattened at the bottom, and silver-finish aluminum gearshift paddles. The steering wheel is part of the Performance package, which also includes forged 19-inch AMG light alloy, double-spoke wheels with a titanium gray finish and polished surfaces.
The front axle is equipped with internally ventilated, perforated composite disc brakes (390 x 36 mm) that keep braking distances to a minimum and ensure the vehicle is extremely resistant to fading. Handling is further enhanced by an AMG Performance chassis equipped with Active Body Control.

Boasting a top output of 518 hp and a maximum torque of 465 lb-ft, the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine is augmented by an extremely responsive partner in the shape of the all-new AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT seven-speed sports transmission. The SL63 AMG Edition IWC accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, while its top speed is electronically limited to 300 km/h.
