S63 Ahead of Schedule

The new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupé has been publicised prior to its planned unveiling at the New York Motor Show next month. The new S63 will be placed at the higher end of the Mercedes-Benz models; replacing the current CL63 AMG and challenging the likes of the Bentley Continental GT. The S63 is due to go on sale in the UK this November for approximately £100,000. The lavish coupé incorporates a twin turbo 5.5 litre V8 engine and a seven-speed automatic gearbox. There will be a choice between the standard rear-wheel drive and the 4-Matic drive option. Both models weigh the same at 1995kg and Mercedes have claimed a weight reduction of 65kg from the former CL63 AMG model. The rear-wheel drive model will use AirMatic suspension with optional corner tilt, whilst the 4-wheel drive will use a more traditional and lighter steel spring suspension. The performance figures for this new model aren’t bad either. The rear-wheel drive accelerates from 0-62mph in 4.3 seconds and the 4Matic in a staggering 3.9 seconds, with both models having a top speed of 155mph.
