Mercedes Shows A New S63 AMG Super Sedan

Mercedes-AMG is unleashing the new S63 AMG, the most powerful high-performance saloon in the luxury segment. The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine, the most powerful member of the BlueDIRECT engine family, with an output of 585 hp and torque of 900Nm delivers effortlessly superior performance. Thanks to systematic lightweight construction based on the “AMG Lightweight Performance” philosophy, the S 63 AMG is up to 100 kilograms lighter than its predecessor.

The entire outer skin of the S-Class, including the roof and the front end of the body, is made of aluminium. Installing a spare wheel recess made of carbon fibre, a material used in Formula 1, reduces the weight by a further four kilograms. The S 63 AMG also leads the way when it comes to power-to-weight ratio, boasting a figure of 3.49 kg/hp, resulting in effortlessly superior performance. Acceleration from 0 to 100km/h takes 4.0 to 4.4 seconds, depending on model variant, and the top speed is 155 mph (electronically limited).

Maximum individuality and custom-tailored dynamics are the strengths of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT seven-speed sports transmission. The three transmission modes – “C” (Controlled Efficiency), “S” (Sport) and “M” (Manual) – provide each driver with a personal set-up. A combination of an efficient drive system and reduced weight results in an NEDC combined fuel consumption of 27.4 – 27.9 mpg (237 to 242 g/km CO2). The high-performance saloon’s design is defined by a large, upright and distinctly three-dimensional radiator grille that underlines the special status of the S-Class with an exciting contrast to this being provided by the front apron with three large air dams. The new S 63 AMG will celebrate its world premiere in September 2013 at the Frankfurt International Motor Show.
