Mercedes-Benz S63L Facelift

It’s the new S63 AMG. Its styling is very marginally different – fancier lights is about the measure of it – but it’s a new engine with more power that’s most interesting. The S63 AMG uses the same 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 you’ll find in the hottest version of the Mercedes E63 AMG.

 

IMPROVED PERFORMANCE


New engine, new transmission, new all-wheel drive, new exterior and interior design: 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.
