Mercedes-Benz Singapore unveils the G63 Singapore Edition and launches the invite-only Collectors’ Club for its VIP customers.
Mercedes-Benz Singapore has unveiled the one-of-a-kind G63 AMG Singapore Edition, which also marks the first time the brand has introduced a car tailor-made for the local market.
This G-Class was the highlight launch of the Mercedes-Benz Collectors Club, which was held on 14 September at Mondrian Singapore Duxton.
The event also featured Mercedes-AMG’s longtime partner, watchmaker IWC Schaffhausen, which showcased the Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G63. Like the car, there is only one unit of the timepiece, and it will be given to the SUV’s owner.
In addition, Mercedes also introduced NXT Eternities, the brand’s team of experts dedicated to creating NFTs – exclusive digital collectibles for members of the invite-only club.
The aim of the Mercedes-Benz Collectors Club in Singapore is to connect like-minded customers and offer them a “unique and lasting relationship with the Three-Pointed Star in recognition of their passion for the brand.” Membership promises priority access to future, one-of-a-kind vehicle editions and customisations from the brand.
The G63 Singapore Edition is coated in Manufaktur copper orange and is equipped with matte black, 22-inch AMG forged wheels. The paintwork is reminiscent of the terracotta roofs of Keong Saik shophouses and pays homage to Singapore’s rich heritage.
Adding to the exclusivity and touch of locality is the “Mercedes-Benz 1 of 1 – Singapore Edition 2023” badge affixed to bottom right of the tailgate.
Inside, Manufaktur two-tone Nappa leather upholstery in platinum white and black, perforated by diamond geometric shapes, adorns the Mercedes-AMG G63 Singapore Edition.
Nappa leather and Dinamica microfibre also clothe the AMG Performance steering wheel. Completing the luxurious look and feel of the interior is the handcrafted cherry wood used for the base of the luggage compartment and the front passenger grab handle with ‘Manufaktur’ badging.
According to Mercedes Singapore, no customer can personalise a G-Class in the same specification, as the factory will not accede to the request. However, the same combination can be ordered for other Mercedes models in the line-up.
Similar design characteristics – a unique black rubber strap with terracotta-coloured surface – feature strongly in the Big Pilot’s Watch AMG G63 that comes with the car. The owner will also find an IWC timepiece nestled in the dashboard of the special edition Mercedes-AMG G63.
In conjunction with the launch of Mercedes-Benz NXT Eternities, the brand’s second core collection, members of the Mercedes-Benz Collectors Club will each receive one NFT bearing either one of the iconic brand logos of Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-AMG, and Mercedes-Maybach.
There are only 1,886 pieces in total – the production figure reflects the year that Karl Benz invented the motorcar.
