Mercedes Benz introduces the all new 2014 S63 AMG, a weapon of sort to crush down miles upon miles of highways. The new S63 AMG is an “all wheel drive”, thanks to Mercedes Benz’s 4MATIC system. A perfect combination to of power and luxury, but now with the ability to lay down the power. This is probably one of the fastest full-size luxury sedan to terrorize super cars, coming soon to a highway near you.
2014 Mercedes Benz S63 AMG
The 6th generation Mercedes Benz S63 AMG would debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show in September and customers should be able to get their hands on it by the end of 2013.
The 2014 S63 AMG 4MATIC has a direct-injected & twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8; good enough to deliver a mammoth 577hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. This is the most powerful version of AMG’s M157 engine yet, and trumps the output of the 2014 E63 AMG 4MATIC. 0-100kmph is at a claimed 3.9 secs, yes this is a super car terrorizer.
Top speed in the 2014 S63 AMG 4MATIC is electronically limited to 186 mph.
The key to the car’s performance is its standard 4MATIC system (MB’s all wheel drive system), which is now becoming standard to most of AMG’s lineup. This system is unique to AMG models and features a 33-67 front-rear torque split, offering a rear-biased feel.
The system relies on a transfer case integrated with the gearbox. Torque is transferred to the front wheels via a second drive shaft and front differential. The added weight of all-wheel drive is approximately 154 pounds, but despite this the 2014 S63 AMG 4MATIC still weighs around 220 pounds less than its predecessor.

A lot of weight savings measures went into the new S63 AMG. sUCH As adding light-alloy wheels, a lithium-ion battery (this saves 44 pounds), the use of aluminum for the brakes, roof and front panels, and even using some carbon fiber like in the spare wheel recess.
Handling gear changes is AMG’s familiar SPEEDSHIFT MCT seven-speed automatic transmission, which comes with several modes including a full manual option. The transmission also comes with an engine stop-start system that, however this can be disabled.
The suspension,features Mercedes’ AIRMATIC setup and comes with adaptive damping. One new feature is the continuous damping adjustment, which can be controlled independently in the compression stage and rebound stage. It allows for better adaptation to the driving and road-surface conditions. Drivers have two settings for the suspension: Comfort and Sport. These settings also adjust the car’s electronic power steering and work in conjunction with the car’s electronic stability system. To aid handling, a torque vectoring system done via braking is utilized.
On the styling front, designers have kept things a bit subdued this time, which sees the car maintain the elegant lines of the regular S-Class. A large, upright and distinctly three-dimensional radiator grille underlines the special status of this particular S-Class variant, and is joined by a front bumper with three large air intakes. The car also dons sporty side sills and a rear diffuser with integrated exhausts. Note, the exhaust features internal flaps which open up when in sports mode. The standard wheels measure 19 inches across while a 20-inch seat is available as an option. Also available are carbon ceramic brakes for extra stopping power and lower weight.
Inside, the subdued design theme is continued, with plenty of AMG-labeled components to remind us that this is no ordinary S-Class. AMG sports seats are fitted up front and lined with Nappa leather. Also present is an IWC clock, embossed AMG logo on the center armrest and an AMG sports steering wheel.
Instead of a separate AMG DRIVE UNIT, all the specific AMG electronic controls are integrated with the standard S-Class user interface, which consists of two high-resolution screens and COMAND control dial. One of these screens serves as the car’s instrument cluster but gets unique AMG lettering and red and silver dials.
