Mercedes-AMG has launched the S63 coupe in India at Rs 2.55 crore, ex-showroom, Delhi. The Mercedes-AMG S63 is based on the facelifted version of the S-Class that went on sale a few months ago. It will compete with the Bentley Continental GT and Porsche Panamera Turbo.
The Mercedes-AMG S63 uses the same bi-turbo V8 petrol motor from the E63S 4MATIC+. This beast of an engine makes 612PS of power and a massive 900Nm of torque. A 9-speed automatic transmission along with rear wheel drive helps the S63s to reach a 0-100kmph speed in just 3.5s. A top speed north of 300kmph can be expected from this car with the standard AMG package thrown in. Cylinder deactivation feature takes care of the efficiency bit by disengaging a couple of cylinders when the car is in coasting mode. Mercedes-AMG says that 4MATIC wasn’t provided with this car because it’s not available for right hand drive markets as of now.
There are many differences to tell a discerning eye the difference between the regular S-Class and this car. this include the use of the Panamericana grille that is mostly used for the AMG iterations, snazzier bumpers, lowered ground clearance, lightweight alloy wheels, rear spoiler and more. The cabin looks like the regular S-Class and has a big coloured display for the driver. The layout is a touchscreen unit and looks quite vivid. As expected, there are the usual trappings associated with a Mercedes-Benz car like four zone climate control, a 12-speaker infotainment system, electrically powered seats with memory function and a panoramic sunroof to name a few.
The list of safety features is endless and it includes eight airbags, ABS, DSR and many such aids. Bookings for the new Mercedes-AMG S63 4MATIC have started and deliveries begin in a few months now based on the orders. The car is brought in through the CBU route.
