60 years after the legendary 300 SL ”Gullwing” debuted in the ”Big Apple”, another sporty dream car with the three-pointed star makes its entrance: The new S 63 AMG Coupé takes centre stage on the Mercedes-Benz stand at the New York International Auto Show.
The stunning high-performance coupé sees Mercedes-AMG enhance its model lineup with a luxurious sports car that combines supreme power and performance with groundbreaking efficiency. Under the hood is a hand-built, twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine, capable of producing 577 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. Mercedes’ seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT automatic transmission handles that force, which pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9, and goes on to reach a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited). Power is sent to the road via 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system.
”The new S 63 AMG Coupé is another exciting AMG dream car in the luxury segment. We now also offer our new two-door with the optional, performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive. We are thus continuing our all-wheel drive and model offensive on our largest single market, the U.S.,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
Mercedes-Benz also showed shots of the interior of its highly anticipated AMG GT. Red and black leather encompassed what appeared to be a spacious cabin. More detail is expected on the AMG GT this fall.
