The all new S63 has been officially unveiled today at the one and only Frankfurt Motor Show. But be warned the starting price of this machine is somewhat jaw dropping at a huge $188,100. —
Even though this car has been unveiled today it will not be on sale in the US and UK until late November but it will be well worth the wait as this car comes with a staggering hand-built 5.5 litre V8 bi-turbo engine which is also twinned with an AMG services speed shift MCT seven-speed sports transmission.
This somewhat futuristic vehicle pumps out an amazing 585bhp and 900Nm of torque. The S63 can reach 0-62mph is as little as 4.4 seconds and will hit a rapid top speed of 155mph. Despite all these exciting statistics AMG have also made it their mission to lower the emissions of their cars and this latest release gives out 27mpg and emits 237g/km of CO2 which is quite impressive for a sports car.
Further to all this the S63 is not short on technology either and is fitted with the latest Mercedes AMG sports suspension which includes Magic Body Control and Burmese Surround Sound System as standard features.
Some other features include driving assist package, keyless go, panoramic roof, ambient lighting, tyre pressure monitoring system and last of all ambient lighting. In the rear of the car passengers also benefit from sports seats and a start-up screen which makes it a comfortable experience for drivers and passengers alike.
It is said that the shorter wheelbase models come with rear-wheel drive however the luxurious long wheelbase version of the car gets the manufacturer’s 4Matic system instead which I think makes it safe to say AMG are going after both the speed and luxury market with this new s-class.
Overall it looks like AMG are not going away any time soon if they keep releasing cars like this however that being said the price difference to its nearest competitors are somewhat sizeable with the Audi S8 being $66,000 cheaper and the BMW M6 being $36,000 cheaper this is not a poor man’s car by any means.
