Default Exclusive *HOT* Mercs for Aussie unveiled at 2010 Australian International Motor Show

Source: Mercedes Concept 358 and unique SLS AMG introduced in Australia

Mercedes has unveiled two unique AMG models at the 2010 Australian International Motor Show.
The SLS AMG has an exclusive appearance with designo magno Night Black paint and red accents. While we're not crazy about the lipstick, the car looks rather fetching.
Likewise, the Concept 358 is basically a C 63 AMG with designo Pearl Orange paint, black 19-inch alloy wheels, premium leather upholstery and the AMG Performance Package Plus. The latter enables the 6.3-liter (6208cc) V8 engine to produce 358 kW (480 hp / 487 PS) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft) of torque. Thanks to the added power, the car accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

They should have stopped after the Matte Black paint, even though I would still kill for this one also.
And orange is for Lamborghinis, especially this shade. But again the power and torque figures do not leave scope for me complaining about it.

On the SLS, the three-pointed star at both ends should have been left in chrome.

I love that orange paint job on the C63! And the black alloys are just complementing the whole design.

While I like the red calipers on the matte black SLS, but I think they've overdone red by even painting the air slits and logos in red!

AMG trying too hard with the exterior it seems. The sls would look wonderful in all matt finish without the gaudy red inserts except the red calipers. And the orange c class. What a waste of an engine and a car. Good its a concept.

Orange AMG. Yuck!

I like orange only on a Gallardo. Maybe some other souped up cars like a Mustang etc.

One word, overkill. The SLS should do away with the red.
But why on earth make an insane beast like the C63 look like orange candy?! It'll be a gaudy eyesore on the roads if ever implemented.
