The S-Class is widely recognised as one of the world’s best luxury cars, so it is understandable that its high-performance AMG variant provides the pinnacle of high-powered luxury. Fitted with a 5.5 litre V8 petrol engine, the S63 AMG L combines astonishing performance with flawless interior opulence and a plethora of driver-convenience technology.

The S63 AMG L provides excellent protection to the driver and passengers in the event of an accident. Eight airbags are standard and protect the occupants from any kind of impact, whilst optional “beltbegs” reduce the pressures sometimes exerted on the chest during a crash. The PRE-SAFE® system also helps to prevent injury if a frontal impact occurs, tensing the seatbelts just beforehand to ensure that the driver or front passenger are not pulled against the direction of the impact. Meanwhile the raft of active safety measures are included in the Driving Assistance Package Plus includes such proactive features as the DISTRONIC PLUS to keep you a safe distance from the vehicles in front and Brake Assist, which reduces the risk of rear-end shunts during city driving.
Although weighing around 100kg less than its predecessor, the S63 AMG L’s large and majestic frame is as impressive as ever.
The inimitable grille, topped with the classic Mercedes bonnet ornament, is complemented by 19” or 20” alloy wheels, the charismatic swoop of the roofline, and quad exhausts.
Never brash, but boasting materials of the very highest quality, the cabin of the S63 AMG L epitomises the car’s dedication to refinement and usability
While offering more than enough legroom and headroom for even the largest passengers.
The nappa leather AMG sports seats provide lateral support to hold occupants firmly in place when manoeuvring at high speeds.
Whilst the ambient lighting and dual-zone automatic climate control (with three different climate modes) only contribute to the refreshing, serene atmosphere.
A powerhouse of an engine pushes the S63 AMG L to heights of performance scarcely believable in such a large, stately vehicle.
With 585hp and maximum torque of 900Nm between 2250-3750rpm, the 5.5 litre V8 petrol engine can achieve 0-62mph acceleration in 4.4 seconds.
A figure that decreases to just four seconds on models fitted with the 4MATIC four-wheel drive.
The seven-speed sports transmission results in a rapid, relentless surge of power every time you press the right-hand pedal, and the enormously pliant suspension gives you a comfortable ride on the most scarred and potholed roads.
A 12.3” screen, through which drivers can view information, communications and entertainment functions through the manufacturer’s COMAND touchpad, is accompanied by the Head-Up Display, which displays important information so that drivers can keep their eyes on the road at all times.
