Mercedes S63/S65 AMG Facelift

Top-of-the-line S-Class models Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG and S 65 AMG boast now even greater appeal. This is possible thanks to a series of subtle yet extremely effective fine-tuning measures. The updated technology was used to ensure a more dynamic driving experience as well as optimum active and passive safety. Both models are exclusive and dynamic. The Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 naturally aspirated engine capable of generating 525 horsepower and 630 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds. The Mercedes-Benz S 65 AMG is even more powerful. Its AMG 6.0-liter Biturbo V12 engine is capable of producing 612 horsepower and 1.000 Nm of torque. This power enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and to reach an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. Even if the engineers did not change the engine data, the fuel consumption and the CO2 emission level have been reduced by 3%. The S 63 AMG features a new front apron which incorporates AMG-specific LED daytime driving lights and two transverse air outlets on each side. The model also has redesigned exterior mirrors and V12 Biturbo or 6.3 AMG lettering on the front wings. A distinctive element on both models comes in the guise of the AMG sports exhaust with two chromed twin tailpipes, featuring V12 design in the case of the S 65 AMG. The AMG sports suspension that has as base the Active Body Control provides crosswind stabilization as standard equipment for the first time. Also making up the standard equipment is the new Torque Vectoring Brake, an additional feature of the Electronic Stability Program. The interior appointments are every bit as exclusive as the high-tech packages. The price for the S 63 AMG starts at EUR115.700 and goes up to EUR121.700 and for the S 65 AMG starts at EUR185.900.
