PRODUCT EYE: Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG L

On a trip to Mercedes-Benz UK’s HQ, Brooks tried out various released models, including the S 63 AMG L limo.

Like all jobs, in one, there are great to balance out the less than ones. Being invited up to Keynes to drive the new-to-me counts as one of the highlights of 2014 far. There were a of examples available so I started off in the S 500 L AMG This one combines a 455hp V8 and 7G-Tronic Plus seven-speed gearbox with the long (3,165mm) body style and a of aero additions.

Base is GBP 88,130 but would you believe the car is listed at GBP 123,630? Let me mention of the big ticket items: a nappa package is GBP 6,530 and includes such as illuminated doorsills and wood trim; ‘Executive Package’ means electrically and ventilated seats and a powered GBP 4,340 for Magic Body Night View Assist at GBP 2,080; and lots more

You would have to think and hard about adding of the extra-cost items (imagine you must pay extra, GBP 1,430 in for a panoramic electric sunroof) but Body Control has got to be worth I’ve driven the A8 L, S8, 7 Series Li, LS 460 and XJ L as as the old W221 series S-Class. a doubt, MBC lifts the W222 into a different category its rivals. You cannot believe a car which weighs 2,015kg all those options and me are added in can handle as it does. And the ride? that it’s onwide rims, it’s nothing of amazing. As good as a Phantom, go so far as saying.

I loved all the techy stuff the S 500, especially the Comand system. This bundles and analogue radio, a single slot, HDD, Speed Assist, Linguatronic voice a WLAN hotspot, a 10 gig music and a 3D nav map with live traffic displayed on a 12.3-inch monitor.

The S 500 was an drive but I ached to try its badder the S 63 AMG L. This one looks pretty sitting lower on its special wheels plus 255/45 and 280/40 (rear) tyres. It has the 5,287mm overall length as the S 500 L but at it’s wider. So you have to more about the size of the especially on B-roads as even it handles like something far the width tends to slow — you don’t want to losing the mirror or touching a in a car costing a hundred and twenty pounds.

Well, the price isn’t that amount. It’s as GBP 119,565 but again, there’s tempting extras which in case, lifted the total to GBP There’s safety tech, as Night View Assist (GBP 2,080), Pre-Safe Package (GBP 1,230), and fun such as AMG Driver’s Package. The of these, priced at GBP 2,760, the top speed from a restricted to 186mph and entitles you to training at the AMG Academy.

I loved every in the S 63. Its AMG Speedshift MCT transmission has seven like other S-Class versions but none available in the UK has the and 430kW (585hp) of the 63’s 5,461cc V8. Zero to 62mph is in just 4.4 seconds but press car hard and you’ll see fuel somewhat worse than the official Combined average of CO2? Surprisingly enough, it as bad as you might have guessed: Traction, even on wet roads, was and that’s doubly impressive this car is rear-wheel drive There IS a 4MATIC option but only available in certain drive markets.

The S 63, which was launched at September’s IAA, was the fastest of the W222 for a relatively short time, honour now belonging to another with an AMG suffix, the S 65 AMG, premiered at the LA and Tokyo shows November. Rather than a biturbo V8, the fastest S-Class yet is by a 463kW (680hp) 5,980cc V12. It also produces of torque. This one, now to order in Germany, costs a 232,050 euro there. options.

Another recent is the S 600 L, which goes on sale in the months in relevant markets, been revealed at the Detroit earlier this month. the S 65 AMG, it has a turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 but its is a more modest 530hp.

Aside from all these cars, the S-Class range V6 variants and later this a four-cylinder car will be added for countries. This is the S 300 BlueTEC Its powertrain will consist of the combination of a 150kW (204hp) diesel engine and 20hp electric motor as the existing ML 300 and E 300 Hybrids.

All of these additional continue to be added to the S-Class range announced in May 2013. consisted of just three 190kW (258hp) 2,987cc V6 S 350 BlueTEC, 225kW (306hp) V6 petrol + 20kW motor S 400 and 335kW (455hp) 4,663cc V8 S 500, the latter badged S 550 in America. All are available in standard or long wheelbase (3,165mm) In the UK, the current range is as follows: S 350 and S 400 Hybrid in two wheelbase lengths as as SE and AMG trims, and then the S 500 L and S 63 AMG L range

The S-Class has multiple claimed firsts, including no lightbulbs instead, with modules by Automotive Lighting), heated and a suspension system that is for the road ahead. This big also brought with it a new MRA. This, in modified underpins the new C-Class and it will be used for the forthcoming S-Class and the next E-Class.

Thus far, the S-Class is built only at Sindelfingen in but assembly of the S 350 CDI in India is due to be added the second half of this As for the S 63 AMG, S 63 AMG L, S 63 AMG L 4MATIC and S 65, these all life at Sindelfingen but final takes place at AMG’s in nearby Affalterbach.

The company stated in 2013 that there be now three new models in addition to the and extended wheelbase [S-Class variants and the S-Class coupé. is some talk of the Maybach being revived for the priciest of are rumoured to be a couple of XL-sized Let’s see what April’s motor show in Beijing or failing that, Moscow in or Paris in September.

Despite having taken my to try the latest shape S-Class, I managed to bag a drive in the best of the that amazing S 63 AMG L. It’s not some potentially annoying (see the picture caption what the optional champagne does to the boot’s ability to a big suitcase) but is there a better door supercar on the British I wouldn’t have thought so.
