Mercedes celebrates F1 Championship with SL63 AMG Collectors’ Edition [Gallery]

It seems Mercedes’ Formula 1 Championship winning season has gone to its head and affected its customer cars, because the marque has just announced a fleet of 19 special edition SL63 AMGs — one for each track on the calendar.

No, the team didn’t win every single race, but it sure could’ve. Nevertheless, to celebrate the Mercedes W05 Hybrid‘s manic performance and decimation of the Formula 1 paddock this year, each car will be emblazoned with its signature track’s layout and a few particularly shiny bells and whistles.

While we can’t imagine that these will be any good on the track (Mercedes’ AMG cars usually kill their own tyres before the first corner), it will sure turn a good few heads — especially if driven in Maranello.

Power output courtesy of the company’s 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 motor sits at 585-horsepower, which should be more than enough.

The Silverstone edition — naturally spruced courtesy of Lewis Hamilton — features some tasty black and yellow trim while the Nico Rosberg-inspired Hockenheim edition is more subtle, with silver and white embellishments.

And how much are these special collectors items? Try US$400 000 each.
