The Mercedes-AMG S 63 Coupé and the Mercedes-AMG S 65 Coupé are the performance flagships of the svelte S-Class Coupé range, combining the luxurious sophistication of an immensely powerful and dynamic coupé with cutting edge safety and driver assistance systems.

The chassis, steering and brakes of both models have been fine-tuned by Mercedes-AMG to deliver the ideal balance between dynamism, agility and comfort. The front axle features four-link suspension with air springs, single-tube shock absorbers and anti-roll bar, with multi-link independent rear suspension attached to an aluminium subframe. The rear axle with air suspension features a torsion-bar stabiliser which is directly connected to the rear axle carrier.
Magic Body Control
Both the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Coupé and the Mercedes-AMG S 65 Coupé are fitted with Magic Body Control with curve tilting function as standard. Paired with the Mercedes-AMG sports suspension, the Magic Body Control uses an integrated stereo camera that scans the road ahead by up to 15 metres for bumps and undulations. Based on what it ‘sees’ the system can then adjust the damping in advance, and increase or reduce the load applied to the wheels using active hydraulics, to deliver exceptional ride and handling qualities. The curve tilting function enables the vehicle body to lean into bends by up to 2.5 degrees when cornering for a more dynamic cornering stance. On poor surfaces, suspension can also be raised to prevent damage to the vehicle’s underside, while at high speeds it is automatically lowered to enhance aerodynamics and stability.
