On the exterior, the new CLS 63AMG S-Model will be distinguished from the rest of the lineup thanks to its red brake calipers and the AMG logo on the trunk lid with an "S" in contrasting black. The model will be offered with an exclusive 10-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in matte-titanium grey with a high-sheen rim flange.

The biggest updates however are made inside the cabin. In here, the S-Model receives AMG sport seats with grey contrasting stitching and silver seat belts. The package continues with an AMG Performance steering wheel in black Nappa leather, an AMG instrument cluster with an "S AMG" logo on the speedometer and AMG door-sill panels illuminated in white.

For the CLS 63 AMG S-Model, the standard AMG 5.5-liter V-8 biturbo engine has been improved to deliver a stout 585 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 590 pound-feet. Just like the standard version, the new S-Model is offered with an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission that sends the power to all four wheels via a performance-oriented all-wheel-drive system with a power distribution ratio of 33-to-76 (front-to-rear).

The new CLS 63 AMG S-Model will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and the Shooting Brake in 3.7 seconds. All models will deliver a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited).


The new Mercedes CLS 63 AMG S-Model will go on sale in June. Prices will be announced at a later date.

With the improved engine, the new CLS 63 AMG S-Model has left its competitors a little bit behind. The closest one is the Cadillac CTS-V sedan. It is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine that delivers a total of 556 horsepower and a peak torque of 551 pound-feet.

The CLS is about to receive a very powerful competitor in the form of the Audi RS7 — a model rumored to be powered by a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-10 engine with an output of 580 horsepower. If this actually really happens — we will found out next week — then the CLS 63 AMG S-Model has no chance to completely dominate the market, because people really appreciate the elegance of the Audi models and their lower prices.
