The second installment of the unique duo unveiled by Mercedes at the 2010 Australian International Motor Show is the very special Concept 358. Following along the same lines as the Mercedes SLS AMG Night Black, this C 63 AMG is painted in another one-of-a-kind exterior paint job: designo Pearl Orange. It also carries with it the AMG Performance Package Plus found in the Night Black.

This package will increase the engine’s output to a staggering 479 HP, which is where the name comes from. The concept also gets unique 19-inch multi spoke alloy wheels in black, KEYLESS-GO, and extended designo leather appointments in the interior.

"The unique C 63 AMG on display also unveils the AMG Performance Package Plus which Australian customers can now order from their local dealer in both Saloon and Estate," said Managing Director of Mercedes-Benz Cars Australia, Mr Horst von Sanden. "Each Mercedes-Benz vehicle is special, but for this year’s motor show we wanted to go that next step and bring two world exclusives to show the Australian public."

When it was unveiled as a concept, it receives a positive and some negative reviews with this 358. In Australia, this is a certified-hit and one of the crazes at that time.

I can’t see any difference between the traditional Mitsubishi and the Australian version!Hey! The specs and performance of the car wasn’t mentioned in above.

I really don’t agree Omarion_Steve, For several years Mercedes has proven how credible they are and how reliable their cars are. I think it’s just the color that makes this car ugly.

Unique is the right word for the crash test paint job. That said, I’ll take one in gray.

it seems that the rear ends of cars are starting to look much more like front ends

Overly sculpted with too much going on, flame surfacing is obviously far from dead. I can’t say I’m very excited with the direction M-B is going with their front-end designs, either. At least it looks less droopy than the 1st-gen.
