Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe facelift – Rendering
Posted on: Jul 26, 2016 - 11:14am IST
Expected to be launched in 2018.
The Mercedes S 63 AMG Coupe was unveiled at the 2014 New York International Auto Show and went on sale in September 2014. The Mercedes S-Class saloon is set to receive a facelift in 2017, Daimler has confirmed, and thus, in 2018, it will be the time for the Mercedes S-Class Coupe range to receive a mid-life facelift. A speculative rendering from IAB’s artist Shoeb Kalania shows how the 2018 Mercedes S 63 AMG Coupe (facelift) may look like.
The rendered Mercedes S 63 AMG Coupe features the new radiator grille similar to the Panamericana grille of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 and Mercedes-AMG GT R. Also close to the respective elements of the Mercedes-AMG GT R, are the new radiator grille and air scoops.
The facelifted S-Class saloon will likely debut a new version of the Multibeam LED headlights when it arrives next year, and certainly, it will be introduced in the Mercedes S-Class Coupe as well with the facelift. The profile will probably remain largely unchanged, while the rear-end may get a modest update with a restyled bumper and tweaked taillamp graphics.
The 5.5-litre biturbo V8 petrol engine will likely continue being the heart of the Mercedes S 63 AMG Coupe. However, Mercedes could replace this unit favoring the 4.0-liter V8 biturbo from the AMG GT. An Indian launch could take place soon after the global debut, given that the coupe is imported through the CBU route.
