Hot on the heels of the svelte S63 Coupe, Mercedes-AMG will launch the S63 Sedan in India on August 11.
Powering the S63 AMG Sedan is the same, 5.5 litre V8 twin-turbo engine from the Coupe, which makes 577 hp at 5500 RPM and 900 Nm of torque available between 2250 and 3750 RPM. Acceleration is rather rapid, with the S63 sedan sprinting to 100km/h from standstill in just 4.4 seconds (4.0 seconds for the 4Matic LWB model) and accelerates to its limited top speed of 250 km/h.
The S63 also weighs 100 kgs less than its predecessor, which has been achieved by using aluminium for the roof and the front body. Also, a lightweight lithium-ion battery, a weight-optimized AMG composite braking system and AMG forged light-alloy wheels help in shedding the extra kilos. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels, or to all four in case one opts for the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system.
The V8 engine is mated to an AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed transmission that has three modes: “C” (Controlled Efficiency), “S” (Sport) and “M” (Manual). Equipment list includes AMG door sill panels, AMG floor mats, AMG sports pedals made from brushed stainless steel with rubber studs, ambience lighting, Attention Assist, Collision Prevention Assist, Comand Online, Burmester High-End 3D audio system, metallic paintwork, tire pressure loss warning system and LED High Performance headlamps.
