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 9speed 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.
New MULTIBEAM LED headlamps with ULTRA RANGE Highbeam and the updated front apron with jet wing underscore the more expressive appearance of both S-Class models. At the rear, the new apron and individual tailpipe trim add distinctive design focuses.
“Impressive power, torque and performance on the road and expressive design are the hallmarks of the new Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ and the new S 65. We have also taken a major step forward with the S 63, helping to underline our leadership claim in this segment when it comes to driving dynamics, performance, traction, equipment and convincing comfort. The S65 with its high-torque 6.0-litre V-12 Biturbo engine remains thespearhead of the S-Class models,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Managing Board of MercedesAMG GmbH.
