After the teaser video yesterday, Mercedes-Benz AMG has unveiled the new S 63 AMG performance luxurious saloon. This is the most powerful car in the luxury segment, which sets new standards in terms of driving dynamics, lightweight construction and efficiency.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG is powered by the new 5.5 liter V8 bi-turbo with 585HP (430) at 5,500 RPM and 900Nm (667) at 2,2500 RPM. 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
