Mercedes-Benz UK has announced the pricing of the all-new super powerful S 63 AMG. The performance saloon is coming in the UK in November priced from £119,565 OTR. Considering the amount of power, the luxury and all extras, the price is not very high. The most powerful high-performance saloon in the luxury segment aims to set new standards in driving dynamics, performance, refinement and technology.

The engine is a hand built 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). The 4Matic Long Wheelbase accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds, which means that the almost two-ton luxurious saloon is as fast as Porsche 997 GT3 RS. The S 63 AMG returns 27 mpg on the combined cycle and emissions of 237 g/km.

The standard equipment includes a set of 19" AMG 10-spoke alloy wheels, high-performance Composite Brakes fitted as standard along with unique AMG sports suspension based on the all new Magic Body Control. Backing up the performance is the AMG sports exhaust system, providing a suitably thunderous soundtrack. AMG body styling including all-new front and rear bumpers, aiding cooling and adding greater visual drama are joined by AMG specific side sill panels with silver chrome inserts.

The impressive line-up of standard equipment which includes the Driving Assistance Package, Front Seat Comfort Package, Panoramic sunroof, Keyless Go Package, the mighty Burmester Surround Sound System with Six-Disc changer, Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and Ambient Lighting is all over and above the standard equipment offered on the outgoing model representing more than £8,400 of added value for the customer.

The S 63 AMG is available in the long wheelbase version of the S-Class offering passengers the ultimate in luxury and legroom.  An AMG sports steering wheel and superbly supportive AMG sports seats, which are electronically adjustable and heated, are fitted as standard.  The front centre armrest has the AMG emblem embossed on it while an AMG-specific IWC-design analogue clock features on the dash.  The rear features AMG heated sports seats as well as an AMG start-up screen/instrument cluster.

The Drivers Package (£2,760) derestricts the top speed to 300 km/h (186 mph) and secures the customer a place on an AMG ‘Power and Passion' event so they can learn how to handle their car on the racetrack.  Carbon Fibre can also further enhance the look of the car with the addition of the AMG Exterior Carbon Package (£5,000) while the AMG high-performance ceramic composite brake system can be added for £7,090.
