Mercedes has plenty to be celebrating at the moment, having just won the Formula One World Championship in spectacular style – taking the constructors’ title by a huge margin and the top two slots in the drivers’ standings as well. It almost goes without saying that the German outfit would celebrate with a special edition, and that’s just what we’re looking at here.
Presented at a special celebratory Stars & Cars event in Stuttgart in front of 50,000 jubilant fans, the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG World Championship 2014 Collector’s Edition is based on Benz’s twin-turbo V8-powered roadster but with some choice upgrades.
Two versions will be offered: one in black with gold accents (displayed with the Silverstone circuit layout), the other in white with silver accents (and the Hockenheim map). One was designed by Lewis Hamilton, the other by Nico Rosberg. We’ll let you sort out which one was done by which, but either way there’ll only be 19 examples, each dedicated to a different grand prix circuit in the championship which Mercedes positively dominated – winning all but three, scoring eleven one-two finishes and landing on the podium at each and every one.
