In addition to a limited edition GT C, Mercedes-AMG will continue to celebrate its 50th anniversary with a G63. Once again limited to only a run of 50 cars, this limited edition G63 will only be available in Japan. An exclusive Mauritius Blue will cover the SUV which rides on 20-inch black AMG wheels with black also covering the bumpers, wheel arches, wing mirrors, spare wheel cover and roof. Buyers will have four leather interior designs to choose from: black, black and tan, black and brown, and black and cream. The same blue paint from the outside also makes its way inside the cabin via stitching.
The limited edition Japan-only Mercedes-AMG G63 will start at ¥22.2 million JPY, or about $195,000 USD.
To help commemorate the 40th anniversary of the cult classic Star Wars franchise, Mercedes-Benz Japan went about creating a limited edition of its CLA 180 model. Limited to just 120 prototypes, 60 take on a “Calcite White” color scheme to honor the stormtrooper and the remaining 60 in “Night Black” to memorialize Darth Vader himself. Performance-wise, each comes equipped with a 1.6 liter four-cylinder turbo drive engine — good for 120 horsepower and 200 Nm of torque. Although subtle, welcome lights display the Star Wars logo while the menu display features key characters such as Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Chewbacca and Luke Skywalker.
Renault look to reimagine the future of F1 racing with the RS 2027 Vision Concept. Unveiled earlier this year at the Shanghai Motor Show, the technological mockup explores the notion of closed cockpits, likely taking into consideration both aesthetics and safety factors. Fashioned from 3D-printed recycled material, the cockpit design will be completely transparent, as will be the driver helmut — offering absolute visibility while tearing up the blacktop.
