REVEALED: S63 AMG Coupe launches later in 2014
Mercedes-Benz have unveiled the new S63 AMG Coupe.
Boasting a 585hp AMG 5.5litre v8 biturbo engine, the vehicle can sprint 0-62mph in 3.9seconds, reaching a top speed of 155mph and offering a combined fuel economy of 27.9mpg.
The two-door coupe is paired with AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT seven-speed sports transmission, with drivers able to configure their own personal setup based on their driving style.
Buyers will also be able to enjoy world-first curve tilting function – part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system – which allows the vehicle to lean into bends in the fashion of a motorcyclist or skier.
The S63 AMG Coupe is also 65kg lighter than its predecessor thanks to AMG Lightweight Performance.
It will premiere at next month’s New York International Auto Show, before hitting the UK later this year.
“The new S63 AMG Coupe is another exciting AMG dream car in the luxury segment.”

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, said: “The new S63 AMG Coupe is another exciting AMG dream car in the luxury segment.
“Mercedes-AMG is putting the pedal to the metal again in the new year.
“Our model initiative is set to continue at blistering pace.”
Standard equipment for UK buyers will include AMG forged light-alloy wheels, fine nappa leather, radio, Bluetooth, satellite navigation and an innovative multifunction touchpad.
Optional extras will include ten-spoke forged wheels painted in titanium grey and AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system.
UK pricing and specification will be confirmed closer to launch.
