Apart from these four models in the showcase, visitors can also get re-acquainted with another performance plug-in hybrid — Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance. It made its local debut in May 2023 and is the Affalterbach brand's most powerful production model to date, thanks to technology transfer from Formula 1.

The "F1 Edition" can be recognised at first glance by the paintwork. It is an exclusive combination of the paintwork in non-metallic Manufaktur alpine grey and the foiling with AMG logo and colour gradient from grey to black as well as the red colour accents.

The 21-inch AMG forged wheels in the 5-twin-spoke design, black matt finish, with red rim flange, follow the colour scheme of the wheels of the official FIA F1 Medical Car from Mercedes-AMG.

The RM2.1 million performance car features AMG Aerodynamics package, AMG Exterior Carbon-Fibre package II, AMG Exterior Night package, AMG Night Package II, and AMG Dynamic Plus package. Multibeam LED, rear-axle steering, panoramic sunroof, and power closing are also included.
