The Definition of Blue The first glance beguiles. This is no ordinary Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Cabriolet. Instead it is an extremely limited design piece with a clearly defined target group: style fetishists. Ocean Blue is not the deep, dark marine blue found out in the middle of the ocean. It is much more like the sea blue found near the coast — bright, almost gleaming, glittering in the sunshine — as you might observe so clearly along, say, the Pacific. A hue with magical allure that conveys a feeling of effervescent lightness. Of joie de vivre. Of relaxation. Of paradisal places. Of wanderlust. It was these worlds of imagination that inspired the designers at Mercedes-AMG to create the C 63 S Cabriolet Ocean Blue Edition. In doing so, they constantly had a very special clientele in mind for whom they created this new, wonderful color: people who know how to cultivate their individual lifestyle, who are passionate about fashion and design, and for whom power in the workplace as well on the road is an absolute must. And an exclusive one at that. The Ocean Blue Edition is limited to 150 vehicles and includes the most cutting edge assist systems and comfortable yet sporty control systems. The existing exterior colors are not off the shelf. Instead they impart tailor-made elegance. Designo cashmere white magno and designo selenite grey magno. But then why the name Ocean Blue? Here, as with all beautiful things that make our lives worthwhile, it also pays to take a close look at the details on this convertible. The way the decorative leather stitching delicately and discreetly adorns it. The analogue clock in an IWC design in the instrument panel. The wheels with their elegant crossspoke design. But the designers’ own attention to detail is best showcased by the large surface of the stylish soft top: Ocean Blue — the color that lends the vehicle its name but above all gives it its incomparable character. Should we still talk about the engine? Maybe just a little: a hand-assembled V8, 510 hp, capable of 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds.
