Mercedes-Benz S Class is in great demand throughout the world, and the recent unveiling of its coupe version at Geneva Motor Show 2014 had raised the expectations of ‘S’ throughout. So what’s next? Here is the answer, the Mercedes-Benz “S63 AMG Coupe” – a powerful version of the S-Class coupe.
However, the pleasant unveiling of the S63 AMG will happen at New York Auto Show 2014, but the German carmaker has adopted to release all the information before the debut. Hopefully, it is a costly yet a collector’s car for being a revolution of the Mercedes-Benz in the next decade. The AMG badges are posted all over the body to remind the spectators that it is a no ordinary sophisticated car. It can beat the best of industry with its huge 5.0-liter bi-turbo V8 engine under the hoods, which is been asked to give the output of 593PS and a striding 900Nm of torque. Controlling all these devilish performance numbers a seven-speed AMG Speedshift auto transmission is assigned the responsibility of sending the powers to all wheels by a 4Matic drive system tuned by AMG. The S63AMG coupe takes a mere 3.9 seconds to reach 0-100km/h whilst of the top whack of 250km/h. All these speed figures are also aided by the reduced weight of 65kgs trimmed under the AMG Lightweight Performance strategy.
Driving pleasure in S63 AMG can be gained from three driving modes: ‘C’ (Controlled Efficiency), ‘S’ (Sport) and ‘M’ (Manual) to suit the driving different conditions and moods. Despite all that bombastic number of horsepower, torque and new technology Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG coupe returns a magnificent fuel-efficiency of 11.8kmpl and carbon emissions of 237g/km.
Undoubtedly, the pricing of this new Mercedes S63 AGMG Coupe will be a cut above the rest, so the carmaker is astounded to be making the first lot in some limited numbers, and the British (of Britain) will be the first to get it in showrooms nearby May 2014.
