The best luxury car in the world. That is how Mercedes Benz described the latest generation of S500 when launched in 2013. How do you make it better? Simply give it to AMG. AMG use their magic wand and give you the S63 AMG, the sports coupe which can go from being the best boy in the class to the worst bully in the school in couple of seconds. The price you need to pay is just 2.6 Crore ex-showroom, Delhi .
S63 is one of the two coupes unveiled today by Mercedes Benz. The other one is S500 Coupe priced at a modest 2 crore. The S500 Coupe is powered by a 4.7-litre twin turbo V8 engine developing 461PS of power and 700Nm of torque. With a wheelbase of 2945mm, the Coupe is 5027mm long, with a width of 1899mm and a height of 1411mm. Besides all the luxuries you’d expect in an S-Class, the S500 Coupe is a sporty car and gets flaps in its exhaust system to entertain with its rumbling V8 exhaust note as it is controlled pneumatically depending on its engine speed.
If this doesn’t suffice the driver in you, Mercedes gives you the option of insane version, S63 AMG. 5.5-litre twin turbo V8 boasting of 593PS of power and a mind-boggling 900Nm of torque. Along with that you get Mercedes-AMG’s 4Matic all-wheel drive for excellent traction at all times, AMG Sports exhaust system and the AMG Speedshift 7-speed MCT gearbox. Top speed is limited to 250kmph and 0-100kmph comes in 3.9 ticks. I think, it shouldn’t have been electronically limited to 250kmph, just to see how fast it can go! It will be available in RWD and FWD versions. The rear wheel drive will be a bit ‘slower’ at 4.2 seconds.
The cars look phenomenal and will attract 100 flashes per minute. The S63 AMG looks sportier of the two.
The Mercedes Benz G63 AMG that is already on sale in the country, will now be available in some crazy colors. Aptly named the G63 AMG ‘Crazy Colour Edition’, this special model has now been made available in 3 never-seen-before paint schemes – Solar Beam, Sunset Beam, and Alien Green. This edition will just cost 2.17 Crores.
