2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe
The new 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe has been revealed today and will go on sale this fall, after its debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show.
Replacing the CL63 AMG, the new 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe comes with a 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that is tuned to produce 577 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque (a 40hp increase over the CL63) an it pushes the car to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. This engine is paired with a 7-speed AMG Speedshift automatic transmission with Sport, Manual and Controlled Efficiency modes. The new S63 AMG Coupe has also a performance-oriented AMG 4Matic all-wheel drive (33/67% split) that will come standard in the U.S. market.
Like all AMG V8 and V12 engines, the engine for the S63 AMG Coupe is assembled by hand at the AMG engine shop in Affalterbach, according to the strictest quality standards based on the “one man, one engine” philosophy. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe features also the full air-suspension system Airmatic, with the adaptive damping system ADS Plus. Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH says about the new S63 AMG:
The new S63 AMG Coupe is another exciting AMG dream car in the luxury segment. Now the S-Class Coupe also comes with performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive – as we rigorously pursue our all-wheel-drive initiative. Mercedes-AMG is putting the pedal to the metal again in the new year. Our model initiative is set to continue at blistering pace in 2014.
The 2015 S63 AMG Coupe has an interior with the same design seen in the S-Class, with sport seats upholstered in Nappa leather and a new three-spoke AMG steering wheel with perforated leather in the grip area and with column-mounted paddle shifters. A high-resolution TFT color AMG instrument cluster with two animated round dials is another feature displaying the hallmark AMG. A new and innovative touchpad is standard and makes it significantly easier to operate the radio, telephone and navigation system.
