  • C 63 AMG best-selling AMG model ever in Australia

German sports car maker Mercedes-AMG has sold its 1,000th C63 AMG since the Australian launch in 2008.

With 1,006 sedans and 32 Estates now sold, the C 63 AMG sedan and wagon have helped to move Mercedes-Benz Australia Pacific into fourth place worldwide (by volume) for global AMG sales.

The Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Cars, Mr Horst von Sanden said “We had a fantastic year in 2008 with the launch of the CLK 63 AMG 'Black Series', the C 63 AMG sedan and estate range and the fire-breathing SL 65 'Black Series'.”

“In 2009 despite stock shortages we grew our AMG volume by 8 per cent. We were fortunate to be able to secure just 63 of a limited edition specially and exclusively built for Australia 'Edition 63' C 63 sedans and estates.”

“So far in 2010 we have posted a 22 per cent increase in sales, with the all-new E 63 AMG already having sold more than 100 units and the C 63 AMG is on track for more 600 units,” said von Sanden.

“We have convincingly established the C63 as the ultimate prestige sports sedan in Australia by outselling our nearest rival by 66 per cent in 2009 and 131 per cent in 2010.”

“In August the first of the spine-chilling SLS AMG 'gullwing' super cars will be delivered to anxious Australian customers. We already have over forty firm orders for the SLS AMG and our allocation from the factory is close to being fully taken.”

“I sometimes think that AMG stands for ‘Australian Market Growth’,” concluded von Sanden.
