Earlier today we saw the new Mercedes S Class and now Mercedes has announced high performance versions of this luxury sedan, the Mercedes AMG S 63 4MATIC+ and S 65.
The Mercedes AMG S 63 4MATIC+ and S 65 gets a number of upgrades over the existing cars and this include more power.
New engine, new transmission, new all-wheel drive, new exterior and interior design: On the S 63 4MATIC+ (combined fuel consumption: 8.9 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 203 g/km), 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. 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.
At the same time as the S 63 4MATIC+, the top-of-the-range model S 65 (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.
