Meet the latest Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG
With a sprint time of 3.5 seconds from zero to 100 km/h, the performance luxury saloon is on par with full-blooded sports cars. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed sports transmission supersedes the previous 7-speed transmission. This has enabled more agile response times to be achieved. The fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system provides optimal traction.
New engine, new transmission, new all-wheel drive, new exterior and interior design. Mercedes-AMG has honed the driving dynamics and looks further. For improved performance with significantly reduced fuel consumption, the AMG 4.0-litre V-8 Biturbo engine with cylinder deactivation replaces the previous 5.5-litre V-8 Biturbo. Despite the smaller displacement, the new engine puts out 450 kW (612 hp) and thus exactly 20 kW (27 hp) more than the preceding model.
At the same time as the S63 4MATIC+, the top-of-the-range model S65 (combined fuel consumption: 11.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 279 g/km) has been given a visual update that underscores the flagship position of the 12-cylinder model. Its 6.0-litre V-12 Biturbo engine retains its output of 463 kW (630 hp) and peak torque of 1000 Newton metres. Thanks to the advanced stage of development of the V8 and V12 biturbo engine, both new models are among the leading competitors in terms of output and torque.
New MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE Highbeam and the updated front apron with jet wing underscore the more expressive appearance of both S-Class models. At the rear, the new apron and individual tailpipe trim add distinctive design focuses.
