Mercedes-Benz has began accepting bookings for its top end S-class variant, The S63 AMG in India.The car will be following already existing S-class entities like the S500 and S350 CDI, and will obviously come with a price that matches its name. The high performance luxury sedan is expected to be launched in India this July.
The Mercedes S63 AMG will be kitted out with all the standard AMG features. Powering the car will be a a 5.5 liter bi turbo V8 that produces 577 bhp of power and 900 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 7-speed AMG speedshift multi-clutch automatic transmission sending power to all or rear wheels. The AWD S63 AMG is capable of accelerating from 0-100 in a very impressive 4 seconds, while rear wheel drive version can achieve the same in 4.4 seconds.The top speed stands at 300kmph globally, however in India the figure will be electronically restricted to 250kmph.
- AMG-tuned full-air suspension with adaptive dampers and 2 modes
Three drive modes – C (Controlled Efficiency), S (Sport) and M (Manual)
- 19 inch standard (20” optional) AMG specific wheels
- AMG steering wheel, sports seats and an AMG-calibrated infotainment screen.
At prices starting for Rs. 2.2 Crores, the Mercedes Benz S63 AMG is definitely not cheap(even in the segment).However it is still a worthy addition to the S series in the country.
