2019 Mercedes-AMG C63 Bi-Turbo V8 Cabriolet finished in Pearlescent Diamond White
The AMG C63 uses a similar 4.0-litre turbo V8 to the Mercedes-AMG GT which generates 469 bhp (350 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb⋅ft) of torque. By moving to the downsized and turbocharged engine, Mercedes claims the W205 version consumes 32 percent less fuel than the model it replaced. The C63 completes 0-62 mph (0–100 km/h) in 4.1 seconds with a top speed limited to 155 mph (249 km/h). The car uses a seven-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels and gets three-stage adaptive dampers specific to AMG models along with speed-sensitive variable steering. High-performance brakes are also a part of the package with 390 mm (15.4 inch) discs in front and 360 mm (14.2 inch) discs in the rear.
This 2019 example finished in pearlescent diamond white was delivered directly to UF Studio with only delivery miles on the clock. Following thorough decontamination and a multi-stage wash, the car was appraised and paint depth readings taken and recorded. The paintwork was then given a light refining polish using a RUPES LHR15 Machine Polisher with POLISHANGEL Escalte on a SCHOLL Concepts Black SOFTouch Waffle Pad.
All surfaces were treated with Gtechniq Panel Wipe prior to the application of Crystal Serum Ultra Black, a combination of the slickest, most hydrophobic coating in the Gtechniq arsenal, EXO v4 as a layer over the top of Crystal Serum Ultra. This enhances the water repelling function and helps to keep treated surfaces cleaner for longer.
To protect the alloy wheels, Kamikaze Collection STANCE Rim Coat was applied. Formulated specifically to protect alloy wheels and calipers from the unique challenges they face, particularly extreme heat, road salts and brake dust build-up.
Once the cabriolet soft top was clean and completely dry, Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric Anti-Bacterial was applied to protect the fabric from water ingress, colour fade as a result of UV rays and staining from environmental fallout.
I1 Smart Fabric V2 is a specifically designed to repel water and oil-based liquids, helping to prevent staining. Unlike many fabric waterproofing products, I1 Smart Fabric AB V2 coats each fibre individually, thus leaving the overall texture of the fabric unaffected. The anti-microbial function kills bacteria and inhibits mould and mildew growth.
The leather seats were treated with Colourlock Leather Shield to provide effective protection against abrasion damage, prevent dye transfer from dark coloured clothing and inhibit colour fade from UV.
