With Mercedes developing a Coupe version of the new-generation S-Class , we knew that an AMG version was soon to arrive. In the 2015 model year, this becomes a reality, as Mercedes debuts the S63 AMG Coupe ahead of its launch at the New York Auto Show . right around the corner. Today these expectations became a reality, as our spy photographers caught it testing for the first time, wearing the AMG goodies that transform it into a real eye-catcher.
As expected, the S63 AMG Coupe features a design language identical to the 2014 S63 AMG , but taken to a sportier level and with two fewer doors. It gets an AMG front bumper with bigger air intakes to help cool the engine. Around back, a sports exhaust system with quad end pipes hangs out, while a special set of AMG wheels and massive brakes help further qualify this as an AMG-tuned model.
Under the hood, Mercedes uses the same engine as in the sedan version: a 5.5-liter, V-8 biturbo engine that delivers a total of 577 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, this model drops about 140 pounds, thanks to the AMG Lightweight Performance strategy.
Updated 05/28/2014: Mercedes unveiled a very cool commercial for its new S63 AMG Coupe. Called "Performance Art", the new commercial combines elements of the darkness with the beautiful lines on the new sports coupe. The result is of course amazing. Enjoy!
