The eagle eyed folks at WCF have caught the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe this time. The car is inching towards the preparation for its launch next year. The test mule seen here is wearing its full production body, but with black and white psychedelic plastered over to hide the finer details from the spy photographers.
The car hides most of its styling cues, but we can make out the size of the massive air intakes on the front bumper. The S-Class Coupe’s usually sport these large air intakes, but these look pretty special. Apart from the air intakes, we also get a slightly better view of the restyled headlights. On the rear, the car sports new LED tail-lights which are clearly visible in the pictures.
Powering this S 63 AMG Coupe is AMG’s 5.5 liter twin-turbo V8 engine. This AMG V8 pumps out 585 bhp of power, which is transmitted to the wheels via a 7-speed SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission system. The AMG V8 in combination with the 7-speed gearbox, will ensure that the Coupe will dismiss the 100 kmph mark from standstill in just around 3.8 seconds. As with most cars, the car will be electronically limited at a speed of 250 kmph.
The car will be available as standard with the 4MATIC all-wheel drive, at least in the U.S market. AMG’s version of 4MATIC features a 33-67 front-rear torque split. This setup will offer a rear-biased feel we all love, but with the advantage of added traction of all-wheel-drive when roads get slippery.
