The latest in a long line of dream cars created by Mercedes-Benz and AMG, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe is scheduled to debut at the New York International Auto Show, opening on April 18 and continuing through April 27, 2014 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City, New York, USA. The car presents breathtaking performance and irresistible style loaded with the latest in technological advancements, innovative safety devices, and cutting edge passenger comfort features.
Classic Mercedes-Benz exterior styling meets exciting new lines to form an aesthetic effect that embodies elegance. A three dimensional AMG “twin-blade” radiator grille in silver shadow (a matte silver finish) seems to dominate the front of this automotive masterpiece, shouting performance with distinctive AMG badging between the lamellas. Adding clarification that this is a high-performance creation from Affalterbach is the A-wing located just below the grille. It is painted in body-color, adorned with the trademark “A” and spans the entire width of the front apron. Large outer air intakes greedily scoop up ambient air and deliver it to various engine induction and cooling systems. Finally underneath, the front splitter is finished in silver shadow and serves to both optimize air flow for engine cooling and reduce front axle lift; creating a more aerodynamic balance. Providing separation between the A-wing and the splitter, high-gloss black grilles exude quality while enhancing the appearance of a lowered center of gravity. Side sill panel inserts in silver shadow, with “V8 BITURBO” badging, carry the windswept appearance away from the front end and over the specially designed AMG wheels causing the coupe to exude energy even when sitting still. In the rear the silver shadow finished lower trim and gloss-black diffuser provides a contrast that closely resembles the front A-wing. The chrome tipped dual-exhaust tailpipes with sport flaps protrude menacingly from the diffuser insert and vertical air outlets in the rear apron take the place of a rear spoiler lip, further enhancing aerodynamic efficiency. The “S63 AMG” logo (in contemporary new text) is just below the LED taillights.
Benefiting from the AMG Lightweight Performance Strategy, the 2015 S63 AMG 4MATIC is 140-pounds lighter than its predecessor, even though it has a higher output rating and more standard equipment. The entire outer skin and the front end of the car are constructed from lightweight aircraft grade aluminum, a lightweight lithium-ion battery is standard equipment, as are a weight-optimized AMG high-performance composite braking system and optional AMG forged alloy wheels. The lower overall vehicle weight combined with greater engine performance creates a higher power-to-weight-ratio resulting in mind-numbing acceleration, increased top-speed, and improved fuel efficiency. With 577-horsepower the S63 AMG 4MATIC can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in only 3.9-seconds with a top speed of 186 mph (electronically regulated).
