Mercedes has created two special edition SL 63 AMG Roadsters to celebrate its utter domination of the 2014 Formula One season, where it ran away with the Constructors Championship and saw its drivers Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg finish 1st and 2nd respectively in the Drivers Championship. The two vehicles were co-created by and are dedicated to Hamilton and Rosberg; only 38 units will be built.

The Lewis Hamilton SL 63 features an eye-catching shade of black paint and gold highlights on the bumpers and bonnets. The interior features black leather and a center console offset by gold stitching. Nico Rosberg's version is white and uses contrasting grey for the doorhandles and spoilers.

Each car is designed to commemorate a specific race from the F1 calendar, meaning no two cars are exactly the same. Each car has a different F1 track embroidered into its floor mats and engraved onto the console.

These SL 63 AMG Roadsters are equipped with 5.5-liter V8 engines that pump out 585 horsepower with a peak torque of 664 pounds-feet.
