Individualisation: AMG Performance Studio and designo reflect the owner's personal style

Sep 7, 2010
Further touches of dynamism and exclusivity can be achieved with the optional extras available from the AMG Performance Studio and designo. Customers with specific tastes will find a unique series of appointment details here to reflect their own personal style.
The optional extras from the AMG Performance Studio as well as from designo provide for the proverbial tailor-made individuality. With these items, customers have the option of giving their S 63 AMG and CL 63 AMG a highly personalised and exceptional finishing touch. Opened in Affalterbach in 2006, the AMG Performance Studio stocks both technical and visual enhancements for the top-of-the-range coupé.
Overview of the individual appointments available for both AMG models:
  • AMG Performance package: increase in power of 20 kW (27 hp) and 100 Nm, carbon fibre AMG engine cover.
  • AMG double-spoke forged wheels, painted in black with a mirror finish and fitted with 255/35 R 20 (front) and 275/30 R 20 (rear) tyres.
  • AMG double-spoke forged wheels, painted in titanium grey with a mirror finish and fitted with 255/35 R 20 (front) and 275/30 R 20 (rear) tyres.
  • AMG Performance steering wheel in nappa leather with Alcantara® inserts in the grip areas.
The following items are also available exclusively for the CL 63 AMG:
  • AMG Exterior Carbon package: cross strut on the front apron, exterior mirror housings and rear apron insert in carbon fibre.
  • AMG carbon-fibre trim elements in the interior.
AMG trim elements in black piano lacquer/carbon fibre are available for the
S 63 AMG. While the dashboard and the door trim are adorned with high-gloss black wood trim, both the front centre console and the folding rear armrest are trimmed in genuine carbon fibre. The high-grade material mix lends the interior a definite dynamic touch as an option – and subtly alludes to AMG's eminently successful motorsport heritage.
Exclusive designo line-up with designo Selection
The entire designo range is available to provide further individualisation options - an exclusive selection of different paint finishes, leather upholstery, trim elements and steering wheels: ten different designo paint finishes can be combined with ten designo aniline leather appointments options – with the result that there are practically unlimited possibilities for customers to turn their personal preferences into reality. Particular highlights come courtesy of the matt paint finishes designo magno platinum, designo magno cashmere white and designo magno allanite grey (S 63 AMG), for example. The designo aniline leather colours deep white, deep black and light brown provide customers with even more individualisation options. When it comes to designo the customer can choose from six different exclusive trim elements: natural maple grain and matt natural oak grain as well as two high-gloss piano lacquer trim elements in black or champagne white. The unique designo stone trim elements made from genuine granite are available in two versions for the CL-Class: Labrador blue pearl and Star Galaxy. To highlight the exclusivity of the designo trim elements, customers can adorn the rear air conditioning unit cover with handmade designo lettering in 925 sterling silver.
Mercedes-Benz is offering a high-end equipment package for the S 63 AMG with long wheelbase and the CL 63 AMG in the shape of the designo Selection. Customers are able to configure their vehicle according to their personal preferences and taste from all the designo paint finishes, designo leather colours and designo trim elements. Other components of the package include a black roof liner in nappa leather with special fluting, a matching designo wood/leather steering wheel and designo lettering in solid 18-carat gold – exclusively hand-made for the designo Selection.
