Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG - The ultimate high-performance saloon
The newest powertrain of AMG features 5.5 liter V8 biturbo engine and SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed gearbox. The powerunit is mounted on all AMG 63 models.
The maximum output power in the new S 63 AMG is 571hp (420kW) and 900Nm of torque. The power is transmitted to the road through AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports gearbox, which contributes towards a considerable reduction in fuel consumption and harmful emissions. Averaging 10.5 liter per 100 km, the new S63 AMG not only beats its direct competitors, but it is also 25 per cent more economical than the briliant naturally aspirated 6.2 liter V8 in the previous 63 AMG models.
"We are heading into a new era with the S 63 AMG: for the first time we have combined spray-guided direct petrol injection with biturbocharging and the start/stop system. Together with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission, we have reduced both fuel consumption and emissions significantly – while at the same time increasing output and torque.", comments Ola Källenius, head of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The AMG Performance package cost 7900 Euro.
