New Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG with 585bhp revealed ahead of Frankfurt debut

Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the new 2014 S63 AMG that will make its public debut in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

Visually the new S63 AMG is not a big surprise and comes with typical AMG updates like more aggressive bumpers, new side sills, new 19-inch alloys and quad exhaust tips at the rear.

Power comes from an updated Euro 6-compliant 585bhp twin-turbo V8 5.5-litre petrol engine with 900 Nm of torque linked to a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission offering three modes: “C” (Controlled Efficiency), “S” (Sport) and “M” (Manual).

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG does 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds for both SWB and LWB versions, while the all-wheel drive 4MATIC long-wheelbase model does it in just 4 seconds. Top speed is electronically-limited to 155 mph (250 km/h) on all models.

Combined fuel consumption is 27.4 – 27.9 mpg (CO2 emissions from 237 to 242 g/km).

Compared to the outgoing model the new S63 AMG is up to 100 kg lighter. The short wheelbase model weighs 2,045 kg and the long wheelbase model 2,070 kg.

This weight saving was achieved largely thanks to the use of AMG forged light-alloy wheels, a lightweight lithium-ion battery and a weight-optimised AMG high-performance composite brake system.

Prices will be announced closer to market launch, which is in late 2013.
