For the S63 application, AMG recalibrated the 4Matic to give a 33/67% front/rear distribution. This ratio suits the handling balance of a RWD car as as the torque capacity of the front Kallenius said.

The 4Matic adds 154 lb to the curb weight, but the new S63 is 220 lb lighter than the outgoing This is thanks to weight measures on the W222 S-Class on it’s based, but can also be to AMG-specific weight saving like forged wheels, battery, optional ceramic and a carbon fiber spare well, which saved 8.8 lb

With its AMG front and rear side skirts and the option of or silver shadow trim the S63 AMG looks more purposeful its mainstream sibling. The aero helps high-speed stability, but the air intakes and wheels take the Cd of the S550L to 0.28 on the AMG.
