Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupé

This is the absolutely gorgeous looking Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupé – and what a car it is! Sleek lines mated with some softer body curves both front and rear give this two door a breathtaking look.

Equally impressive is the combination of high driving dynamics, ambitious lightweight construction and groundbreaking efficiency. As the most powerful member of the BlueDIRECT engine family, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine is a paragon of poise and assurance. Boasting an output of 585 hp and 900 Nm of torque, the S 63 AMG Coupé delivers exceptional performance with remarkably low fuel consumption. And there is a world first in the shape of the curve tilting function, part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system, to further enhance both driving pleasure and comfort.

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH: “The new S 63 AMG Coupé is another exciting AMG dream car in the luxury segment. Mercedes-AMG is putting the pedal to the metal again in the new year. Our model initiative is set to continue at blistering pace in 2014.”

The car features luxury, refinement and performance at every turn. The MAGIC BODY CONTROL (no idea why they’ve gone for capitals on that one but there we go) allows for the car to lean in, almost in a similar fashion to a motorcyclist. The idea being that greater body control is achieved. Whilst this is a large and powerful car is is also capable of some serious GT style cruising.

Auto Express Reviews McLaren 650S

April 13, 2014

It was with some sadness that I heard McLaren was no longer going to manufacture the McLaren 12C (or as it used to be known the McLaren MP4-12C). Weird monikers aside, the 12C had everything you could ever wish for from a supercar. The only criticism that seemed to hold any weight when leveled at [...]
