Mercedes Benz officially confirmed that the AIRMATIC air suspension version of the new S 63 AMG Coupe will go on sale on April 17 this year for a price of 170,586 Euro (Rs 1.41 crore) and that the Magic Body Control version will be available from 14 July.
While that is official, a report on Mercedes-Benz Passion Blog says that the company will also make available the top of the line Mercedes S 65 AMG Coupe in the month of July.
While the S 63 AMG is scheduled to be unveiled at the New York Motor Show, reports say that the S 65 AMG will get a Beijing Motor Show debut that starts four days after New York opens its doors (20 April).
The S 63 AMG Coupe will be powered by a 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine sourced from AMG that develops 577 bhp and 900 Nm of torque. Mercedes claims a 0-100 kph time of 3.9 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250 kph.
Specifications or the plans to make the S 65 AMG have not been made official, though reports suggest that the 6.0-liter V12 engine on the car would make 680 hp and over a 1,000 Nm of torque.
The S 63 AMG is confirmed to get COMAND Online, THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control, and the LED Intelligent Light System as standard equipment, all of which should also be available on the S 65 AMG.
