Engine & Performance
The car comes with the 4Matic advantage to go with its All-wheel drive (AWD) mechanism, taking road performance a notch higher. The S63 AMG has 5.5 liter V8 engine and is EU6 emission compliant that will be enforced in 2015.
This has been accomplished through harnessing advanced engine technology like twin turbochargers, air-to-water intercoolers, direct injection and other sophisticated appliances.
Notable is the fact that the S63 AMG has shed 100 kilograms compared to its predecessor by way of the use of an aluminum chassis, lithium-ion battery, light-alloy wheels and fiber spare wheel, and weight optimized braking system.
The weight lost in this sedan comes with a bonus; it boosts performance and saves on fuel. Fuel consumption for this model has dropped by 0.4 liters per 100 km.
It also comes with an incredible seven-speed shift automatic transmission with three modes of operation namely: sport, manual and controlled efficiency.
Exterior & Interior
From a distance, the 2014 S63 AMG amplifies a bolder look with its revised lower bumper black fascia with three air inlets. In addition, the front splitter tinted in silver shadow is an add-on that reduces air lift tremendously.
The inside represents a fine collection of sports seats that accentuates with its AWD and a hefty steering wheel which fiercely announce its sporting intentions.
