Packs a 5.5-liter V8 twin turbo engine capable of 585 hp and 900 Nm of torque.
The next model in the pipeline for Mercedes India is the flagship 2015 Mercedes-AMG S63 limo, which will launch on August 11. It will be brought into India via the CBU route, and is expected to be priced over INR 2 crores.
The AMG S63 is powered by a 5.5-liter V8 Biturbo engine delivering 585bhp and 900Nm Nm of torque through an AMG 7-speed SPEEDSHIFT gearbox to the rear wheels. At the moment, it’s unconfirmed if Mercedes will also introduce the S63 AMG with a 4MATIC AWD system.
Like the recently launched AMG S63 Coupe, its 4-door derivative will also feature Mercedes’ Magic Body Control, which uses two stereoscopic cameras at the front for detecting speed bumps and potholes, and actively adjusts the air suspension stiffness rate for better comfort.
The AMG S63 limo features an exclusive AMG body kit, but keeps the aggression to a minimum, unlike other AMGs offered today. Characteristic features include larger air intakes, AMG composite brakes, lightweight forged alloy wheels and a quad exhaust system.
Inside, the cabin will be largely identical to the standard Mercedes S Class, but is finished in a performance-themed leather upholstery and interior trim. It is expected to be offered with an all black interior upholstered with Nappa leather, and wooden trim inserts replaced with carbon fiber.
