Delivering phenomenal opulence with a distinctly sporty edge, the S63 AMG coupé is both deeply engaging to drive and unsurpassed for comfort and refinement on long motorway journeys.
The usual irreproachable quality of the materials and engineering is accompanied by a wealth of driver-convenience technology – there is, in fact, no area in which this model does not excel.
You can find out more about the S63 AMG coupé at any of the Jardine Mercedes-Benz dealerships throughout Essex and Suffolk.
The versatile suite of safety measures available on the S63 AMG is second to none in its sophistication. Features such as Attention Assist, which sound a warning if it detects signs of fatigue in your driver, and Collision Prevention Assist, which reduces the likelihood of rear-end shunts by automatically depressing the brake pedal when a crash is imminent. The Electronic Stability Programme and a range of traction control systems, give drivers excellent stability in all circumstances. If an accident does occur, eight airbags and seatbelt pre-tensioners are in place to stop the occupants coming to any harm. After a collision the engine automatically shuts off, the hazard warning lights come on, and the central locking is de-activated.
A long bonnet, wide grille, elegant character lines in the side bodywork and a sublimely tapered rear end give the S63 AMG an unmistakeably Mercedes sense of motion, whilst the characteristically AMG front apron with its matt silver splitter ramps up the aggression even further.
19” alloy wheels (complete with prominent brake callipers emblazoned with AMG lettering) and chrome-finished twin tailpipes round off the car’s gorgeous looks admirably.
As one would anticipate of any variant of the illustrious S-Class family, the S63 AMG provides the very height of interior luxury.
The premium-quality nappa leather upholstery and seats (electrically adjustable and with reinforced side bolstering) are accompanied by a panoramic sunroof for the day and elegant ambient lighting for the night.
An almost complete lack of wind and road noise, as well as the astonishingly pliant “Magic Body Control” suspension, mean that the S63 AMG has little equally for ride quality – particularly among vehicles capable of its kind of speed and agility.
400 litres of loadspace is also good for a luxury coupé
The enormous 585hp and 900Nm maximum torque of the S63 AMG endows it with scorching pace, moving this two tonne-plus vehicle from stationary to 62mph in 4.2 seconds.
Taking it to a potential (electronically limited) top speed of 155mph, although the manufacturer’s optional performance pack can take this up to 186mph.
This colossal thrust, furthermore, comes between 2250-3750rpm, ensuring that you never have to put up with delays in acceleration response – especially with the finely calibrated AMG Speedshift automatic transmission.
Cabin technology provides you with all the information and entertainment you could ask for, as well as guaranteeing that you are never out of touch with the outside world.
The Comand Online system is controlled by a user-friendly touchpad or Linguatronic voice control, and offers functions ranging from live traffic information to online radio stations.
For your listening pleasure, the S63 AMG also offers the crystal-clear audio quality of a 24-loudspeaker, 1520-watt Burmester surround sound system.
