Look! Stripes! Yep. Yellow ones. The ones that denote the ‘Edition One’ launch variant of the Mercedes C63. We’ve already driven the C63 S Coupe on a soaking wet circuit, but this is the first time on a UK road, and the first experience of the Edition One. Just to make sure you can do the car nerd thing properly, the standard Edition One gets graphite grey stripes, it’s the S that gets the vomity ones. So what’s different about the Edition One? Styling, mainly, aping Merc’s DTM car. Mango Selenite matte grey paint, yellow stripes everywhere, yellow detailing on the rather lovely interior (excellent seats here, people), yellow, standard-fit carbon ceramic brakes and a gloss black aero pack that includes a new front dam, side skirts, rear diffuser and chunkier rear spoiler. The flared arches and other bits are as per the normal C63 Coupe, which means only the frameless doors, boot and roof are shared with the standard car. Oh, and there are also black, forged wheels (19s on the front, 20s on the back) that also get yet another yellow stripe around the rims. Bit of a bargain for an extra 5k. As long as you like yellow highlighting. No engine changes?
