Mercedes is introducing a limited-edition version of the SL63 AMG.

You can have any colour you want - as long as it's this special shade of white with brown leather trim.

There are matt carbon areas in the rear diffuser and side vents, which are echoed inside in the centre console and door panels.

Buyers also get a limited-edition watch from IWC Shaffhausen of Switzerland.

As in the standard SL63, power comes from a 525bhp 6.2-litre V8 driving through a seven-speed automatic gearbox.

Unlike the standard car, though, there's a limited-slip differential and big composite front brakes for extra stability and stopping power.

AMG heated sports seats, black floor mats with brown piping, door sills with illuminated AMG lettering and a flat-bottomed steering wheel with silver gearshift paddles are also part of the package.

Only 200 are being made. The order book opens in autumn with deliveries starting in November.

The standard SL 63 costs 102,000, so you're unlikely to get much change out of 115,000 for this version.
