Mercedes-Benz India has launched the S63 AMG sedan at a sticker price of Rs. 2.53 Crores (Ex. Showroom, Bangalore) in the country. Just so you know, Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is the most powerful derivative of the company's flagship saloon S-Class. With the launch of S63 AMG, the German luxury automaker's AMG portfolio now has as many as 9 vehicles. It is company's tenth launch in India in 2015, and it would still launch 5 more products in the country this year, including the Mercedes-AMG GT.
The Mercedes S63 AMG comes loaded with several avant-garde premium features such as Sporty AMG seats, Electric adjustment, driver and co-driver memory function, panoramic sunroof and 7 colours ambient lights as standard. Also, for the first time, the analogue clock in an exclusive design between the air vents features three-dimensional, milled metal hands and metal appliqués on the dial. In addition, there is the AMG sports steering wheel in nappa leather with a heavily contoured rim, an insert with AMG lettering, perforated leather in the grip area and aluminium shift paddles.
Under the hood, Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG has the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine which churns out a massive 585 bhp of power and 900 of peak torque. Just so you know, this engine remains the most efficient series-produced V8 engine of all times in company's history. It is linked to a AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sports transmission, which weighs as low as 80 kilograms. The power is being transmitted to the rear wheels of the sedan, while featuring the AMG sports suspension based on MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The sedan does a 0-100kmph sprint in mere 4.4 seconds. For those wondering, the S63 AMG can be costomized using newly launched ‘designo’ platform of the company.
Eberhard Kern, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India commented, “The Mercedes-AMG S 63 leads the way confidently when it comes to perfection, high-class appeal and top-end quality. The new AMG V8 flagship model in the S-Class is a unique package that has no match in the competitive segment. Path breaking technology like MAGIC BODY CONTROL and a gamut of high-end features makes the Mercedes-AMG S 63 one of the most desirable luxury sedans in our range. This luxury sedan drives performance with the best of luxury like no other car in our portfolio. The launch of a high-end exclusive sedan like Mercedes-AMG S 63, is a fine instance of our successful ‘top of the pyramid’ product strategy.”
