Affalterbach – Mercedes-AMG is unleashing the new S 63 AMG. The most powerful high-performance saloon in the luxury segment sets new standards in terms of driving dynamics, lightweight construction and efficiency. The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine – the most powerful member of the BlueDIRECT engine family, with an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and torque of 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) – 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 (220 lbs) lighter than its predecessor. A combination of an efficient drive system and reduced weight results in an NEDC combined fuel consumption of 10.1 to 10.3 litres per 100 kilometres (237 to 242 g/km CO2). The new S 63 AMG is also available with the performance-oriented AMG all-wheel-drive system 4MATIC as an option for the first time. This not only enhances traction – the S 63 AMG represents a new dimension in driving dynamics in its segment. The design, equipment and appointments of the S 63 AMG meet the highest standards in terms of high-class appeal, quality and perfection.
Ola Källenius, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “Following the successful launch of the A 45 AMG and the CLA 45 AMG, the new S 63 AMG highlights our expertise in the automotive high-end segment. Lightweight construction and absolute performance are among the key strengths of the new flagship model from Mercedes-AMG. The new S 63 AMG likewise leads the way when it comes to perfection, high-class appeal and quality. We are also offering the S 63 AMG with the performance-oriented AMG all-wheel drive system 4MATIC for the first time to target new markets: the S 63 AMG 4MATIC is just the ticket for customers who attach importance to four-wheel drive due to weather conditions.”
