The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe wowed journalists as it debuted at the 2014 New York Auto Show. Sporting a monstrous hand-built, twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V8 engine cranks out 577 horsepower and (are-you-kidding-me-?) 664 lbs-feet of torque. This incredible power is harnessed by a seven-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission which is the only transmission available in the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe.
Here’s a statement regarding the performance of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe – according to Mercedes-Benz: “The S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe is the latest model to benefit from the systematic implementation of the AMG Lightweight Performance strategy. Lightweight construction has reduced the vehicle weight by up to 140 pounds – even though the car has a higher output and more extensive standard equipment than the preceding model.
This weight savings was achieved largely thanks to the use of a lightweight lithium-ion battery, optional AMG forged light-alloy wheels and a weight-optimized AMG high-performance composite braking system. Furthermore, the entire outer skin and the front end of the body are made of aluminium. The reduced weight improves driving dynamics and cuts fuel consumption, while the low power-to-weight ratio results in impressive performance: the S63 AMG Coupe accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in an estimated 3.9 seconds and goes on to reach a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited).”
The exterior design of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe is far more dramatic than their normally restrained designs. Front the A-Wing below the radiator grill to the rear diffuses, the design combines form and function masterfully. Sensual lines, a powerful stance and a bold silhouette accentuate one of the most emotional Mercedes-Benz/AMG-designed vehicles to date.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe represents the very best of what Mercedes-Benz is capable of, and that includes the interior design. “There is an AMG logo in the lower metal insert, and new aluminium shift paddles shorten the reaction time when changing gears to enhance performance. Another feature displaying the hallmark AMG look is the high-resolution TFT color AMG instrument cluster with two animated round dials. In addition to the specific lettering and the needles in red/silver, further distinctive design features include the AMG start-up display, the AMG logo in the speedometer 200 mph scale (left) and the “V8 BITURBO” lettering in the rev counter (right).” – – Mercedes-Benz
