What Is It?

the new S-Class came out a few months Mercedes dubbed it “…the car in the world.” So what would if you made a better S-Class, an S63 by AMG? Would that be than the best? Turns out it is, now AMG has released the S63 AMG, a car that has power, better handling and all the luxury features found on the base S-Class — Mercedes prefers you now call it, “The Series S-Class.”

AMG swapped in a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8, 577 SAE hp and 664 lb-ft of torque, enough to the 4,398-pound-or-more S63 from 0-60 in a 3.9 seconds. To get all you guys in the snowy to buy them, all U.S.-spec S63 AMGs with 4Matic permanent all-wheel-drive, with 33 percent of the going to the front wheels via a power-takeoff gear at the rear of the MCT trans. The AIRMATIC airbag has continuous damping adjustment and can be set for or sport, depending on your or the road conditions. The AMG Adaptive suspension means new bushings all as well as higher camber for the wheels, larger anti-roll and a stiffer rear-subframe carrier. In the of project leader Marco the suspension is now “…repositioned more a curvy willingness.” The electromechanical, variable ratio-steering hardware is the but the software that controls it has rewritten to make it more

What’s It Like To Drive?

We had two days of rain, rain and rain, so heavy at times we could barely see anything at which made driving on the even more exciting usual. Negotiating certain of the A8 between Munich and Salzburg was taking Eau Rouge flat-out at Spa an Ardennes downfall. So we couldn’t go that fast nor really this car around. Not that ever fling a 5000-pound like this, anyway. Off the on twisting two-lane roads, in cornering with the button set to the Airmatic airbag suspension the heft of the car tightly and seemed to body roll to a minimum. also set in Sport, the AMG speed-sensitive steering was sometimes a little too in tightening up its ratio and response in corners. Over a stretch of dirt-road detour in backcountry at about 30 mph or so, we tried switching the AMG sports suspension between and sport and couldn’t really much of a difference. It soaked up the with ease in either In most generic driving, the car tautly responsive yet still and luxurious.

On a flat stretch of wet, local road, we tried a few launches. With the AMG Speedshift MCT sports transmission in “S,” we able to do better than 4.3 We tried a run in “M,” for manual, and up the shifting. More practice have yielded faster Maybe dry pavement would helped get us to AMG’s claimed 3.9 or maybe the wet pavement was functioning as a converter. But how many owners these things anyway, in the rain? Regardless, Mercedes 0-60 for the 449-hp base, er, S-Class at 4.8 seconds, so you could beat the regular S-Class to the next stoplight.

On regular high-speed autobahnen, the car was as to ride in as its Alcantara seats smooth to touch. For the most this is a superbly comfortable, “Series” S-Class, with all such a title implies: swaddling and well-connected wonderfulness.

“So, you see, it is an S-Class, but it is an AMG S-Class,” said head of management Hendrik Hummel.

And we argue with that.
