Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé
Key facts
tech-data

Mercedes-AMG is updating its S-Class Coupé with a host of technical and visual highlights. The new-design front end is dominated by the Panamericana radiator grille, which now gives the two-door, luxury-class Performance vehicles an even more independent look.

In the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé the AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with twin-scroll turbochargers and cylinder deactivation (Coupé) supersedes the previous 5.5-litre V8 biturbo. Despite the smaller displacement, the new engine puts out 450 kW (612 hp) and thus exactly 20 kW (27 hp) more than the preceding model. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission is also new to the Coupé, as is the fully variable all-wheel drive system AMG Performance 4MATIC+.

At the same time with the new eight-cylinder Coupé, the top-of-the-range twelve-cylinder S 65 Coupé is being given a visual update with the Panamericana radiator grille. The AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine retains its output of 463 kW (630 hp) and delivers a maximum torque of 1000 Newton metres.

"Having already undertaken major development work on our S-Class Saloon to further enhance driving performance and individuality, we are now making the same changes to the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé. The extensive modifications are designed to strengthen our leading position in this dream car segment in terms of driving dynamics, performance, equipment and comfort on long journeys. The S 65 Coupé with its high-torque 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine remains the most elite form of the S-Class," stated Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Exterior: Panamericana radiator grille and front apron with new jet wing

The new AMG S-Class Coupé is instantly identifiable from the front thanks to the AMG Panamericana radiator grille: the V-shaped cooling air intake harmoniously follows the lines of the headlamp housings and is subdivided by chromed, vertical struts. The front apron resembles a hovering jet wing and is painted in vehicle colour. It is flanked by two large outer air inlets, which are outlined in high-gloss black. The three-dimensional front splitter with its aerodynamically shaped high-sheen chrome edge reduces uplift at the front axle.

Interior: beguiling appointments and design

The stylish character of the new S-Class models from Mercedes-AMG is also evident in the interior: All four models welcome their passengers with a special ambience. The AMG power sports seats with memory function and seat heating offer the driver and front passenger more lateral support. Nappa leather and AMG badges in the front and rear seat backrests create an exclusive atmosphere on board. Special touches include the embossed emblem on the armrest of the front centre console and the analogue clock in exclusive IWC design, which features three-dimensional, milled metal hands and genuine metal appliqués on the face.

4.0-litre V-8 biturbo engine with twin-scroll turbochargers

The AMG 4.0-litre V-8 Biturbo engine in the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé comes exclusively in the highest performance stage to date rated at 450 kW (612 hp). The peak torque of 900 Nm also represents a new maximum. It is available across a wide rev range between 2750 and 4500 rpm, and thereby provides a sense of superior poise. The sprint from standstill to 100 km/h takes just 3.5 seconds, and the fulminating acceleration continues until the electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h is reached (with AMG Driver's Package: 300 km/h).

'AMG Cylinder Management' cylinder deactivation system

For maximum efficiency, Mercedes-AMG has equipped the V8 engine in the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé with the AMG Cylinder Management cylinder deactivation system. In the partial-load range, cylinders two, three, five and eight are deactivated, which significantly lowers the fuel consumption.

When the driver has selected the "Comfort" transmission driving mode, the cylinder deactivation system is available in the wide engine speed range from 1000 to 3250 rpm. The AMG main menu on the instrument cluster informs the driver whether the cylinder deactivation system is in use and whether the engine is presently operating in the partial or full-load range. The transition from four to eight-cylinder operation is immediate, fast and imperceptible, so that the passengers do not experience any loss of comfort whatsoever.

Short shift times, high efficiency: the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission

For the first time the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé has been fitted with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission, which convinces with extremely short shift times, lightning reactions to shift paddle commands, a double-clutching function and fast multiple downshifts. A wet start-off clutch replaces the torque converter of the production model. This saves weight and improves the response to the driver's accelerator pedal input, particularly during acceleration and load changes. It also allows the RACE START function.

Specially developed suspension for maximum lateral and longitudinal dynamics

The S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé is equipped with AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension with adaptive damping adjustment. Customers can preset the damping to "Comfort", "Sport" and "Sport Plus" ‑ from relaxed long-distance comfort to dynamic sportiness. Rebound and compression are set independently of each other, which optimises the adaptation to the driving status and the quality of the road. The freely programmable mapping furthermore allows a wide spread between minimum and maximum damper forces. The difference between the comfortable and sporty suspension setting is thus more refined and is subjectively even more perceptible – depending on the particular driving situation.

S 65 Coupé: AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension with curve inclination function

The S 65 Coupé's exclusive AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension prepares for bumps in the carriageway ahead before the vehicle drives over them. To this end, AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL combines the active springs of the suspension with continuously adjustable dampers. The system precisely scans the condition of the road ahead with the help of a stereo camera to adjust the damping of each individual wheel optimally to the upcoming bumps already ahead of time.

Direct and with clear feedback: the AMG speed-sensitive steering

The electromechanical speed-sensitive sports steering in the new AMG S-Class models has a variable steering ratio. It stands out thanks to the AMG-specific rack-and-pinion ratio with its precise, highly authentic feedback. Power assist varies between the stages "Comfort“, "Sport“ and "Sport+“. The relevant characteristics are automatically activated depending on the selected DYNAMIC SELECT driving mode or can be personalised in "Individual" mode. At low speeds, the driver only needs to provide minimal steering input. At high speeds, he or she is able to rely on solid straight-line stability. The clearly defined steering centre and the authentic feedback likewise contribute to the optimum steering feel.

Good control and fade-resistant: the AMG high-performance compound braking system

The large high-performance composite brake system decelerates the Performance Coupé reliably and quickly and is fade-resistant even under high loads. The new models are fitted with 390 x 36 mm composite brake discs with 6-piston aluminium fixed callipers at the front axle and 360 x 24 mm discs with single-piston floating brake callipers at the rear axle.

For a personalised experience: AMG DYNAMIC SELECT driving modes

The four different AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs "Comfort", "Sport", "Sport+" and "Individual" give drivers extensive influence over the new models' characteristics. Each drive program modifies key parameters such as the response of engine, transmission, suspension, steering, ESP® and all-wheel drive in the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé.

The S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé also feature the "RACE" drive program, while the S 65 Coupé features the drive program "Curve".
