The Mercedes-AMG C63 DTM
The 2018 DTM season was extremely successful for Mercedes-Benz: Gary Paffett wins the drivers' championship for the second time since 2005 and becomes DTM champion. He made the title perfect on October 14, 2018 in the second race at the Hockenheimring with a third place. Mercedes-AMG Motorsport also won the 2018 team and manufacturers championships. In total, 2018 brought the Mercedes-AMG Motorsport DTM team nine race wins (including five double victories and a total of 28 podium places), twelve fastest race laps and 14 pole positions. This balance underlines: Mercedes-AMG Motorsport is the most successful team in DTM history. Since entering the DTM at the factory, the Stuttgart brand has won eleven drivers 'championships with a total of 195 victories and 14 manufacturers' titles. At the height of its success, Mercedes-AMG is withdrawing from the DTM at the end of the 2018 season and will be involved in Formula E from 2019. The racing machine of the six Mercedes drivers around Formula 1 returnees Pascal Wehrlein is also in 2018 again the C-Class Coupé. The vehicle was optically changed in various places - on the one hand for design reasons - and above all due to the changed technical regulations. When it comes to design, the new AMG-specific radiator grille with vertical struts is immediately noticeable. The grill and the headlights form the optical bridge to the production model of the C 63. However, the changes due to the regulations are much more profound. The 2018 vehicles have to make do with significantly reduced aerodynamics. At the front of the vehicles, only one so-called aero-flick will be used on each side. In addition, the flick is smaller than in the previous season. As a further change, the side channel at the bottom of the vehicle has been significantly simplified and the side plate in the area below the doors has been omitted completely. The reduction in aerodynamic add-on parts for the entire vehicle has reduced downforce by around a third. The aim of this measure is to enable better racing on the track. If the vehicles are unstable on the track, the chance of one or the other driving error is possible and allows the direct competitor to start an overtaking maneuver.
The vehicle offered here is number RS15-012, which was used for the first time in the 2015 season and was piloted by Robert Wickens. The highlight of the season was the 2nd place at the Norisring and of course the victory at the Nürburgring. In 2016 and 2017, this C63 DTM from Wickens was also successfully driven through the season, which led to the best Mercedes-AMG placement in 2016 with fourth place in the overall standings. Also this season, Wickens finished several races on the podium, including a 2nd place in Hockenheim, followed by 3rd place at the Nürburg and the Norisring, as well as two victories in Valencia and Moscow. With the driver change in 2018, none other than the former Formula 1 driver Pascal Wehrlein followed into the cockpit of the C63 DTM. He finished the season in 8th place after his return from Formula 1. This vehicle offers a unique opportunity to add a true piece of Mercedes-AMG Motorsport history to your collection and use it at selected events. An extensive spare parts package is also included in the purchase price. If you have any detailed questions, please do not hesitate to contact our sales staff.
