Mercedes-AMG has launched the S 63 Coupe facelift with a price tag of Rs 2.55 crore (ex-showroom, India). The S 63 has the same 4.0-litre, twin-turbo, V8 powertrain as the smaller E 63 S 4Matic+ but it makes more power here – in this car it makes over 612hp and 900Nm and is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels.
The car also features cylinder deactivation tech to improve fuel economy. This car can hit 100kph from a standstill in just 3.5 seconds and has a top-speed that’s limited to 250kph, but the AMG Driver’s package increases that limit to 300kph. The cabin is bathed in Nappa leather and has AMG badges on the front- and rear-seat backrests and on the three-spoke steering wheel.
It also comes with a 12.3-inch TFT widescreen colour display, which shows information such as engine and transmission oil temperature, lateral and longitudinal acceleration, the engine output and torque, boost pressure, and tyre temperatures and pressures.
