On the heels of the news that Mercedes beat BMW in North American sales last month comes another uplifting report, this time from the land down under. There, the entire allocation for the C63 AMG Black Series has been snapped up. Announced only in the first week of November and for delivery in April 2012, the overwhelming response has caught the local managers there by surprise.
Says Richard Emery, General Manager Sales, Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars, “I can’t say I’m surprised but we’re certainly overwhelmed by the quick response. We’ll continue to work with AMG to secure more vehicles as not only have we sold out of our C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series allocation, but we now have a wait list. At this stage we don’t know how many more we can secure, but I know the number of additional vehicles won’t be high due to global demand.”
With that kind of statement, expect prices for these rare coupes to rise and retain their value even into the future. Even though rival BMW has been taking away sales, it seems that a resurgent Mercedes-Benz is intent on taking back its crown worldwide.
