DISTINCTIVE FEATURES: Dynamism and exclusivity are fused with sensuous forms in the new S63 AMG.
MERCEDES-AMG is unleashing the new S 63 AMG at the Frankfurt International Motor Show in September.
The most powerful high-performance saloon in the luxury segment sets new standards in terms of driving dynamics, lightweight construction and efficiency, say the manufacturers.
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, resulting in an NEDC combined fuel consumption of 10.1 to 10.3 litres per 100 kilometres (237 to 242 g/km CO2).
This weight saving was achieved largely thanks to the use of AMG forged light-alloy wheels, a lightweight lithium-ion battery and a weight-optimised AMG high-performance composite brake system.
Furthermore, the entire outer skin of the S-Class, including the roof and the front end of the body, is made of aluminium. Prices range from €149,880 to €152,617
The AMG sports exhaust system in the S 63 AMG has automatic logic-controlled exhaust flaps in both rear silencers.
When the transmission is in ‘C’ (Controlled Efficiency) mode, the flaps remain closed in most situations. In ‘S’ (Sport) and ‘M’ (Manual) modes, the exhaust flaps open earlier and more spontaneously, especially if the driver prefers a dynamic driving style.
Powerful and exclusive, dynamic and prestigious – the new S 63 AMG also makes a visual impression.
The high-performance saloon’s design is defined by the impressive blend of hallmark Mercedes sensual forms, classic architecture and a sleek silhouette with classic AMG design features.
A large, upright and distinctly three-dimensional radiator grille 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.
Like the exterior design, the S 63 AMG interior is a beguiling combination of the sportily exclusive atmosphere of a true AMG automobile with classic Mercedes values such as improved interior dimensions, new control logic, new ergonomic touches, ease of use, safety, appeal and aesthetics.
