Lighter, more powerful, and better-looking than ever, the muscular AMG version of Mercedes-Benz’s flagship coupe has joined the lineup. With a twin-turbo V-8 generating 577 horsepower, the S63 AMG4Matic coupe extends the ultra-luxury two-door into the ultra-performance realm. Sending its power to all four wheels and employing aluminum, other low-mass materials, including an ultra-lightweight lithium-ion battery, the 2015 S63 coupe rates a laudable 23 mpg city-highway combined, seats four, and has a base price of $161,825, including the destination fee.
Introduced at the New York International Auto Show in April of 2014, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe has arrived at dealership showrooms throughout the world. The new S-class Mercedes Benz coupe provides superior driving dynamics, groundbreaking luxury class fuel economy, and an advanced lightweight design.
Lightweight Design Produces a More Powerful Performance
Mercedes-Benz engineers have designed the S63 AMG4Matic coupe to include the automaker’s proprietary Lightweight Performance strategy. Combining lighter materials and a more sculpted body, Mercedes-Benz has reduced the weight of the S class coupe by nearly 130 pounds. The 2015 S63 AMG4MATIC coupe achieves its lighter weight despite producing a higher engine output and carrying heavier standard engine components. Most of the reduced weight of the coupe derives from the ultra-lightweight lithium-ion battery.
Lighter Means More Power
While aluminium shaves a few pounds off the exterior to enhance performance, what’s inside the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG4MATIC makes the performance difference. The S-class coupe accelerates to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds and reaches a top speed that approaches 190 miles per hour. In addition to a lighter, spryer design, Mercedes-Benz powers the AMG4MATIC coupe with a 5.5-liter V8 Bi-turbo engine that produces a class leading 577 horsepower and 664 pounds-feet of torque.
7 Speeds Turn the Lighter Wheels
The S63 AMG4MATIC pairs the Bi-turbo V8 engine with a seven-speed sport transmission that optimizes the vehicle’s agility and power. Owners of the S-class coupe choose from three transmission modes to match their preferred driving styles. In addition to the potent engine-transmission combination, Mercedes-Benz builds the new coupe with forged light-alloy wheels to further reduce the vehicle’s weight and increase the strength of the coupe during sharp turns.
Sleek on the Outside, Luxurious Panache on the Inside
Although Mercedes-Benz stresses the lighter design of the S63 AMG4MATIC coupe, the company does not neglect to mention the stunningly beautiful interior. The wrap-around instrument panel and artistic craftsmanship create an exclusive design that also exudes supreme comfort. Finely combed Nappa leather conforms to every type of body shape, while providing a high level of breathability. Power adjusted seats that include heating and ventilation controls provide passengers with the ultimate in lateral support.
In a recent press release, Mercedes-Benz expects the lightweight design and high-powered engine performance of the S63 AMG4MATIC to set the standard for future S-class vehicles.
