Leadership claim supported.
“Impressive power, torque and performance on the road, as well as the expressive design distinguish the new Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ and the new S 65. With the S 63, we additionally took a major development step that supports our leadership claim in the areas of driving dynamics, performance, traction, equipment and demonstrative comfort. The S 65 with its high-torque 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine remains the spearhead of the S-Class models,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
Dramatically honed further.
New engine, new transmission, new all-wheel drive, new exterior and interior design: On the S 63 4MATIC+, Mercedes-AMG has dramatically honed the driving dynamics and looks further. For improved performance with significantly reduced fuel consumption, the AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with cylinder deactivation replaces the previous 5.5-litre V8 biturbo. Despite the smaller displacement, the new engine puts out 450 kW (612 PS) and thus exactly 20 kW (27 PS) more than the preceding model. With a sprint time of 3.5 seconds from nil to 100 km/h, the performance luxury saloon is on par with thoroughbred sports cars. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9?speed sports transmission replaces the previous 7-speed gearbox. This has enabled more agile response times to be achieved. The fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive system provides optimal traction.
Superiority of the high-end 12-cylinder.
At the same time as the S 63 4MATIC+, the top-of-the-range model S 65 receives a visual update that underscores the superiority of the high-end 12-cylinder model. Its 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine retains its output of 463 kW (630 PS) and peak torque of 1,000 Newton metres. Thanks to the highest stage of development of the V8 and V12 biturbo engines, both new models deliver more output and torque than the competitors.
MAGIC BODY CONTROL with curve-tilting function.
The four AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes, “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport+” and “Individual”, allow the driver to influence the characteristics of the S 63 4MATIC+ and the S 65 extensively. In addition, the S 65 features the “Curve” driving mode, active in the speed range between 15 km/h and 180 km/h. A curve-tilting function is integrated into the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension of the S 65. As a result, the vehicle tilts to the inside of the turn by up to 2.65 degrees, similar to a motorcycle rider. This reduces the perceived lateral forces and increases the ride quality.
Interior: Beguiling design and quality.
The AMG power sports seats with memory function and seat heating offer the driver and front passenger more lateral support. Nappa leather in AMG V8 design with AMG badges in the front and rear backrests creates a luxurious atmosphere on board. Special touches include the embossed emblem on the armrest of the front center console and the analogue clock in exclusive IWC design. The three-spoke Performance steering wheel features paddle shifters, a distinctly contoured rim trimmed with perforated leather in the grip area, and a metal insert with AMG logotype.
