The new S 63 AMG Coupé is the latest dream car to augment the Mercedes-AMG model range. Exciting lines underpin this two-door model’s design. Dominance and sensual purity combine to lend the vehicle irresistible presence and effortlessly superior sportiness. Equally impressive is the combination of high driving dynamics, ambitious lightweight construction and groundbreaking efficiency. As the most powerful member of the BlueDIRECT engine family, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine is a paragon of poise and assurance. Boasting an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and 900 Nm of torque, the S 63 AMG Coupé delivers exceptional performance with remarkably low fuel consumption. Performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive is available as an option. And there is a world first in the shape of the curve tilting function, part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system, to further enhance both driving pleasure and comfort. Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “The new S 63 AMG Coupé is another exciting AMG dream car in the luxury segment. Now the S-Class Coupé also comes with the option of performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive – as we rigorously pursue our all-wheel-drive initiative. Mercedes-AMG is putting the pedal to the metal again in the new year. Our model initiative is set to continue at blistering pace in 2014.”
65 kilograms lighter thanks to AMG Lightweight Performance The S 63 AMG Coupé is the latest model to benefit from the systematic implementation of the AMG Lightweight Performance strategy. Lightweight construction has reduced the vehicle weight by 65 kilograms – even though the car has a higher output and more extensive standard equipment than the predecessor model. This weight saving was achieved largely thanks to the use of a lightweight lithium-ion battery, AMG forged light-alloy wheels and a weight-optimised AMG high-performance composite braking system. Furthermore, the entire outer skin and the front end of the body are madeof aluminium. The reduced weight improves driving dynamics and cuts fuel consumption, while the low power-to-weight ratio of 3.41 kg/hp results in effortlessly superior performance: the S 63 AMG Coupé accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 to 4.3 seconds, depending on model variant, and goes on to reach a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited). In terms of maximum output, torque and fuel consumption, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine remains one of the most efficient series-produced V8 engines of all. With an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and 900 Nm of torque, the AMG eight-cylinder unit from the BlueDIRECT engine family meets even the most demanding of requirements. Compared to the previous CL 63 AMG model, engine output has been increased by 30 kW (41 hp) and torque by 100 Nm. Yet the S 63 AMG Coupé still consumes less fuel: The NEDC combined figure of 10.1 litres per 100 kilometres makes the two-door model the most fuel-efficient model in its competitive segment. This reduction of up to 0.4 litres per 100 kilometres and compliance with the EU6 emissions standard show that performance, efficiency and environmental compatibility are by no means mutually exclusive at Mercedes-AMG.

Mercedes-Benz’s hybrid attack began in 2009, when it introduced the S 400 HYBRID and the ML 450 HYBRID hybrid cars. The ML 450 HYBRID was directed at the US market with a 275 bhp V6 engine comboined with an electric motor available only through lease deals. It has been quiet on the hybrid market since, but the S-Class S400 HYBRID is available at the moment and we know that a plug-in hybrid is coming soon. Our sharp eyed reader noticed something peculiar at the Mercedes- benz.de site, as shown in the picture above. The ML model range had interesting choices available: ML 250 HYBRID CDI , ML 400 HYBRID , the ML 500 HYBRID and even the ML 63 AMG HYBRID. We will know in the future if Mercedes-Benz reveled it’s future plans to us through a site leak. The only certainty at this moment is that the hybrid technology is here to stay.
