2014 Mercedes Benz S63 AMG




PRICE : For Benz S63 AMG $139,500

Mercedes-AMG is unleashing the new S63 AMG: the most powerful high-performance saloon in the luxury segment sets new standards in terms of driving dynamics, lightweight construction and efficiency. The guarantor of effortlessly superior performance is the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine delivering 430 kW (585 hp) and 900 newton metres of torque - the most powerful member of the BlueDIRECT engine family. Thanks to systematic lightweight construction based on the "AMG Lightweight Performance" philosophy, the Mercedes-Benz SLS S63 AMG tips the scales at up to 100 kilograms less than its predecessor. The combination of an efficient drive system and reduced weight results in an NEDC combined fuel consumption of 10.1 to 10.3 litres per 100 kilometres. The new S63 AMG is also available for the first time with the performance-oriented AMG all-wheel drive system 4MATIC as an option. This not only enhances traction - the Mercedes-Benz SLS S63 AMG represents a new dimension in driving dynamics in its segment. The design, equipment and appointments of the S63 AMG meet the highest standards in terms of high-class appeal, quality and perfection.

Systematic implementation of the AMG Lightweight Performance strategy reduces the weight of the S63 AMG by up to 100 kilograms compared to the predecessor model. This weight saving was achieved largely thanks to the use of a lightweight lithium-ion battery, AMG forged light-alloy wheels, and a weight-optimised AMG high-performance composite braking system. Furthermore, the entire outer skin of the S-Class, including the roof and the front end of the body, is made of aluminium. Installing a spare wheel recess made of carbon-fibre, a material used in Formula 1, reduces the weight by a further four kilograms.

The Mercedes-Benz SLS S63 AMG also leads the way when it comes to power-to-weight ratio, boasting a figure of 3.37 kg/hp. The result is effortlessly superior performance: Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes 4.0 to 4.4 seconds depending on model variant, and the top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited).

In terms of maximum output and fuel consumption, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine remains the most efficient series-produced V8 engine of all. With an output of 430 kW (585 hp) and a torque of 900 Nm, the AMG eight-cylinder unit from the BlueDIRECT engine family (in-house designation M 157) outperforms all comparable engines. The fuel consumption of the new S63 AMG is up to 0.4 litres per 100 kilometres lower than that of the preceding model, even though the engine output has been increased by 30 kW (41 hp). The range-topping eight-cylinder model already meets the requirements of the EU6 emissions standard, which is due to come into force in 2015.

EXTERIOR











The S63 AMG takes the new S-Class to a sporty level with the usual AMG design features we have seen on all the recently announced models.

Up front, the model is distinguished by a large, three-dimensional radiator grille and a new front apron with three large air dams, both painted in high-gloss black. There is also a new, three-dimensional front splitter in silver shadow that reduces lift and larger side air intakes that ensure optimal cooling for the engine.

On the side, you will notice new sill panels with three-dimensional inserts in silver shadow that provide a more aggressive look and brings the vehicle closer to the road.

On the rear, there is a new black diffuser insert with trim in silver shadow and a new AMG exhaust system with two chrome twin tailpipes. The S63 AMG is further distinguished by "V8 Biturbo" logo placed on the front fenders and the trunk lid.


INTERIOR

















A feel-good atmosphere combined with a luxurious ambienceand the sporty functionality of a genuine AMG high-performance model - that is how the interior of the S63 AMG might best be described. A pleasure for all the senses: the lovingly designed interior fascinates with its very high-grade materials, first-class quality and carefully chosen colour schemes. All the occupants benefit from improved interior dimensions, a new control logic and new highlights in terms of ergonomics, operating convenience and safety.

AMG sports seats developed exclusively for the S63 AMG ensure outstanding long-distance comfort. Electric adjustment, a memory function and seat heating are standard features. Newly contoured seat cushions and backrests improve lateral support when cornering at speed. Fine nappa leather in AMG V8 design with AMG badges in the front seat backrests creates an exquisite and luxurious atmosphere on board. This is perfectly complemented by a high-quality, embossed AMG emblem on the front centre console. There is a choice of four colours for the S63 AMG: black, satin beige/espresso brown, crystal grey/seashell grey and nut brown/black. The standard wood trim can be replaced by two different designo trim variants - myrtle wood in high-gloss sunburst brown or metallised ash wood. Trim in AMG carbon-fibre/black piano lacquer is available from the AMG Performance Studio.

Another feature reserved for AMG is the high-quality analogue clock in an exclusive IWC design between the air vents: this for the first time features three-dimensional, milled metal hands and metal appliqués on the dial. The AMG sports steering wheel in nappa leather with a heavily contoured rim, an insert with AMG lettering, perforated leather in the grip area and aluminium shift paddles allows perfect vehicle control.

The AMG instrument cluster is in a decidedly sporty design: the animated dial instruments are dominated by the colours silver and red, while other AMG-specific features include the distinctive typography, the 330 km/h speedometer scale with AMG logo and the "V8 BITURBO" lettering in the rev counter. The attention to detail is also obvious here: the AMG logo and V8 BITURBO lettering change their size and appearance depending on the operating state of the vehicle. The AMG start-up display is in keeping with this: when the driver's door is opened, an animated AMG logo appears in the large TFT display on the right.

Comprehensive information for the driver is provided by the AMG main menu integrated into the AMG instrument cluster: there is a digital speedometer and a permanent gear display in the upper section. In transmission mode "M" the driver is also prompted to perform an upshift shortly before the rpm limit is reached. Selecting "Warm Up" brings up two further dials indicating the engine oil and transmission oil temperatures. The transmission and suspension configurations that can be set using the keys in the centre console, as well as the ESP mode, are shown at the lower edge of the AMG "Set Up" menu. An animated S63 AMG in the TFT display between the speedometer and rev counter provides the driver with visual feedback: in transmission mode "C" (Controlled Efficiency), the car is seen standing on a normal country road, in mode "S" (Sport) it is on a winding road and in "M" (Manual) the background is a racetrack with red/white kerbs. The upper section of the display contains a permanent gear indicator and, when manual transmission mode "M" is selected, also an upshift recommendation. The activated transmission programme, current ESP mode and selected suspension configuration can be seen at the lower edge.

AMG SPEED SHIFT


Maximum individuality and custom-tailored dynamics are the strengths of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission. The three transmission modes - "C" (Controlled Efficiency), "S" (Sport) and "M" (Manual) - provide each driver with a personal transmission setup. In comfort-oriented "C" mode the ECO start/stop function is active and shuts off the eight-cylinder engine when the car is at a standstill. In "C" mode, the driver experiences smooth transmission characteristics with comfort-oriented gearshifts. In "C" mode the car always starts in second gear.

In the "S" and "M" transmission modes the engine and transmission are significantly more agile and the ECO start/stop function is deactivated. A brief and precisely defined retardation of ignition and injection under open throttle results in even faster and acoustically more emotional gearshifts.


PERFORMANCE (ALL WHEEL DRIVE)


The optionally available performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drivedistributes the engine torque to send 33 percent to the front axle and 67 percent to the rear axle. The rear-biased power distribution provides the signature AMG high driving dynamics and superlative driving enjoyment as well as boosting acceleration from a standing start. The all-wheel drive also enhances driving safety on wet or wintry road surfaces. Optimum traction is guaranteed by a multi-disc clutch with a locking effect of 50 newton metres, which exploits the frictional connection potential of all four wheels to the full on snow and ice in particular.

The technical basis for the AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive system is a transfer case for the additional power take-off to the driven front axle. This requires no additional installation space, as it is integrated compactly into the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission. The torque is transmitted from the power take-off via a propeller shaft to the front axle. Power transmission from the front axle differential to the front-left drive shaft is effected via an intermediate shaft which passes through an encapsulated shaft duct in the engine oil pan. The compact and weight-optimised design results in a comparatively low level of additional weight for the all-wheel drive system of only 70 kilograms, which also helps to reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.

All variants of the S63 AMG are fitted with ESP Curve Dynamic Assist as standard. Targeted braking intervention at the inside rear wheel results in defined cornering of the vehicle and ensures greater agility when taking corners at high speed. There is no irritating understeer when turning into corners.



2 SUSPENSION


The S63 AMG 4MATIC is equipped with the AMG sports suspension. The full air suspension system AIRMATIC is equipped with the Adaptive Damping System ADS PLUS. One new feature is the continuous damping adjustment, which can be controlled independently in the compression stage and rebound stage. It allows better adaptation to the driving and road-surface conditions. "Comfort" and "Sport" suspension modes can be selected at the push of a button. Specific front axle kinematics - including higher camber, a larger anti-roll bar and a stiffer subframe carrier on the rear axle - have been developed exclusively for the Mercedes-Benz SLS S63 AMG 4MATIC. These measures optimise the vehicle's agility when driving dynamically. With the redesigned front axle and the special all-wheel drive setup, the S63 AMG 4MATIC represents a new dimension in its segment when it comes to driving dynamics.

The S63 AMG with rear-wheel drive features AMG sports suspension based on MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The new S-Class is the first car in the world able to recognise road surface undulations in advance. If ROAD SURFACE SCAN detects such undulations with the help of the stereo camera, MAGIC BODY CONTROL adjusts the suspension in advance to suit the situation. Both suspension modes - "Comfort" and "Sport" - are also available here. The AMG-specific elastokinematics ensure more directness when driving dynamically. Both suspension variants available for the S63 AMG offer hallmark Mercedes comfort on long journeys.

The electromechanical AMG speed-sensitive sports steering with variable steering ratio is the perfect complement: this greatly enhances vehicle handling and agilitywhile maintaining driving safety at high speeds. In "Comfort" suspension mode, the AMG speed-sensitive sports steering enhances comfort by providing more steering assistance. If the "Sport" suspension setting is selected, on the other hand, the driver feels a more sportily stiff level of steering assistance - which tends to result in better road feel. The pre-programmed curves for power assistance enhance feedback and steering precision.


AMG LIGHT ALLOYWHEEL


For the first time, the S63 AMG is available with AMG forged light-alloy wheels as standard. This design reduces weight while increasing strength - the result is lower unsprung masses, giving advantages in terms of handling and spring/damper element response. In the standard specification, the S63 AMG is fitted with AMG multi-spoke forged light-alloy wheels painted in titanium grey with a high-sheen finish - front: 8.5 x 19, rear: 9.5 x 19, tyre sizes 255/45 R 19 and 285/40 R 19.

Optional extras include AMG forged light-alloy wheels in a 10-spoke design painted in titanium grey and polished, front: 8.5 x 20, rear: 9.5 x 20, tyre sizes 255/40 R 20 and 285/35 R 20. The AMG light-alloy wheels feature a high-quality, screwable and fully integrated wheel bolt cover made of forged aluminium. Its shape is reminiscent of a centre lock as seen in motorsport. The AMG logo is elegantly integrated into one of the ten spokes. As an option, these AMG light-alloy wheels are also available painted in matt black with a high-sheen rim flange. Alternatively, forged wheels of the same sizes in a 5-twin-spoke design painted in titanium grey with a high-sheen finish and a black wheel bolt cover are available.


DRIVETRAIN



Under the hood, Mercedes placed the usual AMG 5.5-liter V-8 biturbo engine, but it received some major improvements for the new generation. It now delivers a total of 577 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque - an increase of 49 horsepower over the previous generation.

For the first time, the new S63 AMG comes with 4MATIC all-wheel drive, which distributes 33 percent of the power to the front axle and 67 percent to the rear axle. This way the model delivers high-performance driving dynamics and incredible acceleration from a standing start.

The engine is mated to a seven-speed sports transmission with three driving modes: "C" (Controlled Efficiency), "S" (Sport) and "M" (Manual). In the "C" mode the ECO Start/Stop function is on and it shuts off the eight-cylinder engine when the car is at a standstill. In "S" and "M" modes, the S63 AMG’s exhaust flap open up, giving you a sweet growl, to go along with retarded timing for better response and more aggressive shifting.

Also, the new S63 AMG is the first model in its segment to offer a new lithium-ion battery - and the second Mercedes model after SLS AMG. This new battery makes the model about 44 pounds lighter than its predecessor and is relatively resilient in cold temperatures.

As a result, the new S63 AMG will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited).


HIGH BRAKE SYSTEM


Extremely short stopping distances and rapid deceleration are a given for any AMG high-performance car. And the new S63 AMG is no exception as it is equipped with a weight-optimised, fade-resistant AMG high-performance composite brake system. An AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system is available as an option for the S-Class for the first time. The more than 20 percent lighter design ensures lower unsprung masses as well as enhancing driving dynamics, agility and ride comfort. In addition to this, the system has a longer service life, is more resistant to corrosion and displays higher thermal stability. The AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system has front brake discs with a diameter of 420 millimetres and is recognisable by the "AMG Carbon Ceramic" logo on the specially painted brake callipers.


DESIGN



Powerful and exclusive, dynamic and prestigious - the new Mercedes-Benz SLS S63 AMG also makes an impact in visual terms. The high-performance saloon's design is defined by the impressive blend of hallmark Mercedes sensual forms, classic architecture and a sleek silhouette with classic AMG design features. A large, upright and distinctly three-dimensional radiator grille underlines the special status of the S-Class - with an exciting contrast to this being provided by the front apron with its three large cooling air intakes. The front apron with grilles painted in high-gloss black displays the stylised "A" that is a hallmark of AMG vehicles, and emphasises the exclusivity and power of the S63 AMG. Flics (air deflectors) in high-gloss black on the side air intakes optimise the flow of air to the cooling modules - a design that is a familiar sight in motorsport. The three-dimensional front splitter in silver chrome reduces lift.

Side sill panels with three-dimensional inserts in silver chrome make the vehicle appear closer to the road and create dynamism along the flanks with the "Dropping Line" that is so typical of the brand. Large light-alloy wheels are another trademark AMG feature: they afford a clear view of the AMG high-performance braking system. "V8 BITURBO" lettering in new, contemporary typography on the front wings identifies the top-of-the-range eight-cylinder model. This new lettering also appears in the "S63 AMG" model designation on the boot lid. The design is drawn to a powerful conclusion by the black diffuser insert with trim in silver chrome and the two chromed twin tailpipes of the AMG sports exhaust system with exhaust flaps.



ENGINE






Efficiency and emotion, top performance and power delivery - in the second generation of the S63 AMG, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine once again asserts its leadership in this competitive segment. This high-performance engine from Mercedes-AMG with the in-house designation M 157 outperforms all comparable engines: no other series-production eight-cylinder engine is able to match its output of 430 kW (585 hp) and maximum torque of 900 newton metres. In terms of maximum output and fuel consumption, the AMG eight-cylinder engine from the BlueDIRECT family of engines remains the most efficient series-production V8 engine of all. Even though the engine output has been increased by 30 kW (41 hp), the fuel consumption of the new Mercedes-Benz SLS S63 AMG is up to 0.4 litres per 100 kilometres lower than that of the preceding model.

The performance figures show thatdynamism and low fuel consumption can be perfectly combined. The S63 AMG 4MATIC accelerates from standstill to 100 km/h in 4.0 seconds, the rear-wheel drive variant in 4.4 seconds. The top V8 model reaches its top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited) effortlessly and serenely. The driving experience is characterised by the unrivalled power delivery of the charged eight-cylinder power unit from the AMG engine shop in Affalterbach: 900 newton metres of torque is on tap from 2250 to 3750 rpm - guaranteeing exhilarating pulling power in any speed range.


ALUMINIUM CYLINDERS


The crankcase for the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine is made completely of diecast aluminium. The low (dry) engine weight of 203 kilograms is the result of the uncompromising lightweight construction strategy AMG Lightweight Performance, and gives the vehicle balanced weight distribution. The bearing cover for the main crankshaft bearings, made of grey cast iron, is bolted to the crankcase for high rigidity. Cast-in Silitec cylinder liners ensure that the eight pistons operate with low friction.

Drilled ventilation holes in the crankcase lead to a higher output and fuel savings under partial load. Above the bearing blocks are longitudinally drilled holes, which interconnect the crankcase cavities. Normally the upward and downward movement of the pistons causes air to be forced into and extracted from the sump, which leads to increased resistance and thus to a reduction in engine output. The ventilation holes prevent this by ensuring effective pressure compensation between the cavities.

The forged crankshaft made of high-grade 38MnS6BY steel alloy (a combination of the chemical elements manganese, sulphur, boron and yttrium) rotates in five main bearings, has eight counterweights and has been optimised with respect to torsional rigidity, inertia, low rotating masses and a long operating life. A two-mass viscous damper mounted at the front reliably eliminates vibrations. Each connecting rod journal on the crankshaft carries two forged, cracked connecting rods. In the interests of low mechanical friction and high wear resistance, the eight lightweight pistons have a metallic contact surface. Pressure-controlled oil-spray nozzles in the crankcase ensure that the highly stressed piston crowns are efficiently cooled.


TECHNOLOGY






Perfect charging of the combustion chambers is ensured by large intake and exhaust valves, of which there are two per cylinder. The exhaust valves, which are subject to high thermal loads, are sodium-cooled and hollow in order to reduce weight. Four overhead camshafts operate the 32 valves via low-maintenance, low-friction cam followers. The infinitely variable camshaft adjustment within a range of 40 degrees on the intake and exhaust sides depends on the engine load and engine speed, leading to outstanding output and torque values. This also results in consistent idling at a low speed.

Depending on the engine speed, valve overlap can be varied for the best possible fuel/air supply to the combustion chambers and efficient removal of the exhaust gases. The variable camshaft adjustment is carried out electromagnetically via four pivoting actuators, and is controlled by the engine control unit. The camshafts are driven by three high-performance timing chains, which have considerable advantages with regard to noise comfort compared to cylinder roller chains.


DRIVING DYNAMICS


Special kinematics were developed exclusively for the four-link front suspension of the S63 AMG 4MATIC.The larger negative wheel camber, together with the larger rear axle stabiliser and the more rigid suspension subframe carrier at the rear axle, leads to greater agility when the driving style is dynamic. The result is that thanks to more direct feedback, a further improvement in grip and highly neutral behaviour at the physical limits, the Mercedes-Benz SLS S63 AMG 4MATIC opens up a new dimension of dynamic driving in its segment.

The full air suspension system AIRMATIC is equipped with the Adaptive Damping System ADS PLUS. This fully automatic, electronically controlled system adjusts the damping at each wheel to the current requirements. As before, the single-tube dampers have two valves for the rebound and compression stages. Continuously adjustable damping is a new feature: on the basis of numerous data such as acceleration, vehicle level or road speed, it allows better adaptation to the vehicle status and road surface condition to be achieved.

In the centre console to the left of the COMAND controller is a control key that enables the driver to select a personal suspension setup. As an alternative to the comfort-oriented basic setup "Comfort" with a sensitive response and soft damping characteristics, a more sporty setting is available. In "Sport" mode the shock absorbers have a 40 percent stiffer response on average, resulting in reduced body movements when driving dynamically. The selected mode is shown both by the lights on the key and in the AMG menu: After the lettering "AMG RIDE CONTROL sport" or "AMG RIDE CONTROL comfort", an animated S63 AMG appears with a raised or lowered suspension.

Depending on the driving situation, speed and load condition, the system also automatically and very rapidly varies the damper characteristics and reduces the body roll angle in "Comfort" mode. For the driver this means continuous adaptation between the greatest possible agility and maximum ride comfort.

Thanks to continuous adaptation of the vehicle level, the AMG sports suspension based on AIRMATIC allows the suspension travel to be maintained under any load conditions. The suspension level is automatically adjusted depending on the road speed, and lowered by ten millimetres at speeds over 120 km/h in suspension mode "Comfort". Aerodynamic drag is reduced, and handling stability is improved by the car's low centre of gravity. If suspension mode "Sport" is selected manually, the suspension is likewise lowered by ten millimetres - also at speeds below 120 km/h. The driver is also able to select a suspension settting raised by 30 millimetres, for example on poor road surfaces or when negotiating a driveway. When a speed of 80 km/h is exceeded the suspension is automatically lowered after driving for three minutes, and immediately when it reaches 120 km/h.


MULTIMEDIA FEATURES






A completely new multimedia generation with intuitive operation and almost tangible functions thanks to visualisation and animations celebrates its debut in the new S-Class. Other innovations include the multi-user system, which allows independent access to the media sources of the entertainment system from any seat. The new S-Class is also the first saloon car to be equipped with the unique Frontbass system as standard. With this system, the interior space in the bodyshell's cross-members and side members is used as a resonance chamber for the woofers. A High-End 3D surround sound system is available on request.

Several hundred developers worldwide contributed to the new Mercedes-Benz multimedia generation, compiling more than 30 million lines of programming. The centrepiece of the new COMAND Online system is the Intel Atom, a processor whose performance fully equals that of components in the latest laptops.

As a completely new feature, the developers have made the individual functions of the communication systems almost tangible on the screens by means of visualisation and animations. The user is also able to adapt the content of the central display to personal preferences. With the exception of the navigation map (which always fills the complete display area), the graphic content of the central display is divided into a main area (2/3 on the right side of the display) and a supplementary area (1/3 on the left side of the display). In standard configuration the supplementary area shows additional information about the selected main application, e.g. the artist and song title when the radio function is active, or the current station when the TV is active.

It is also possible to show preferred content permanently in the supplementary area (except when the full navigation map is active). It is possible to select a small navigation map, fuel consumption display, data connection display or entertainment information, for example.

In addition to this improvement in operating convenience, numerous new functions extend the multimedia options available, and transform the S-Class into a communication centre or a concert hall as required.

The interactive presentation of content is a major new feature of the navigation function. The new navitainment functions include an animated compass, the "DriveShow" for passenger information as in an aircraft, and the display of Google Maps on the head unit and in the rear. Information on the traffic situation is shown with hatched lines (rather than with vehicle silhouettes as before). Thanks to real-time traffic information, the navigation system is also better informed about the situation on the roads. Traffic data are now provided by the "Live Traffic Information" service. Unlike the previous data sources TMC and TMCpro, whose data are received by radio, "Live Traffic Information" uses a fast internet connection and is therefore particularly up-to-date.

As another new feature, a key word search can be used to enter destinations: only a few letters need to be entered, and the system will automatically display a choice of appropriate town/street combinations and possible points of interest. The letter combinations or key words can even contain spelling mistakes.

Example: if the driver enters STUT and BAD, the system will suggest 'Stuttgarter Strasse' in Bad Friedrichshall, 'Badstrasse' in Stuttgart and the 'Freibad Möhringen' swimming pool in Stuttgart. The entered key words are visually highlighted in the display of search results.

In the radio function the favourite stations can now be saved to an individually organised preset list for all wavebands (DAB, FM, AM) rather than to a general autostore function. Individual stations can then be called up using the favourites function. The "Song tagging" function is likewise useful: songs just played in the vehicle can be flagged and then downloaded to a mobile device via iTunes and the internet connection.

The player is now also able to recognise mixed tracks, i.e. video and audio files. Videos are shown as a preview in a small, animated area, and can be enlarged to full-screen format. The function "Play similar titles" suggests songs similar to the one currently playing, accessing the CD, Music Register or a connected source. Also new are the Coverflow display, the album cover search and the Picture Viewer as a slideshow.

As a standard feature COMAND Online includes "Bluetooth Connectivity". This supports in-vehicle connection of a mobile phone using a standardised Bluetooth interface. The optional "Comfort Telephony" is available as pre-installation of a universal telephone interface which allows the mobile phone to be connected to a phone cradle in the centre console. A suitable phone cradle for various mobile phone models is obtainable from Mercedes-Benz Accessories.

"Business telephony in the rear" with a hands-free function is optionally available for passengers in the rear. Connection of the mobile phone to the rear unit is likewise via Bluetooth®. Pre-installation with a universal phone interface is also possible for the rear. The telephony via the COMAND Online system is networked with the "Business telephony in the rear". The enables conversations to be conveniently transferred between the driver and the rear passengers, and functions such as call-switching or conferencing are available. The business telephony is operated by a Bluetooth handset integrated into the rear, which features a convenient touch-display. This means that functions such as seat adjustments can be intuitively controlled.
