Mercedes S63 AMG  5.5 liter V8 biturbo engine

The 2011 Mercedes S 63 AMG will feature a new power-train. The AMG 5.5-liter V8 Bi-turbo engine is capable of developing 571 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque. All the output is being sent to the wheels through a unique AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission that improves the fuel consumption and the CO2 emissions. With this new S 63 AMG, Mercedes-AMG is continuing this impressive story and is meeting its promise to continuously reduce both the fuel consumption and emissions of new models with the new-engine / transmission combination, while reaching new heights with the central AMG brand value of performance. This engine will play a significant role in the Mercedes-AMG model strategy over the coming year. The new engine/transmission, combination marks a further milestone in the successful history of Mercedes-AMG, which began in 1967. The high-tech package increases the output and torque yield. The engine is capable of developing 544 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque, but after the installation of the new package, the output increases to 571 horsepower and 900 Nm of torque. In addition, the engine cover of the S 63 AMG with the AMG Performance package comes in genuine carbon fiber. With these figures, the new S 63 AMG is not only considerably better than all its competitors, but also more fuel-efficient than much less powerful cars in this segment. With its output, the car is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and it can reach an electronically top speed of 250 km/h. The 100 km/h mark is reached in just 4.4 seconds with the AMG Performance package, with the top speed increased to an electronically limited 300 km/h. like all other AMG engines, the new eight-cylinder Bi-turbo is assembled by hand in the AMG engine shop taken into commission in 2002.
