Affalterbach. Mercedes-AMG has updated its S-Class Coupés and Cabriolets with a host of technical and visual highlights. The new-design front end is dominated by the Panamericana radiator grille, which now gives these luxury two-door, high-performance models an even more distinctive look. In the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet (fuel consumption combined: 9.3 and 10.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 9.2 and 10.1 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 209 and 229 g/km) the AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with twin-scroll turbochargers and cylinder deactivation (Coupé) supersedes the previous 5.5-litre V8 biturbo. Despite the smaller displacement, the new engine puts out 450 kW (612 hp), exactly 20 kW (27 hp) more than the preceding model. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission is also new to the Coupé and Cabriolet, as is the fully variable all-wheel drive system AMG Performance 4MATIC+.

At the same time as the new eight-cylinder Coupé and Cabriolet, the top-of-the-range twelve-cylinder S 65 Coupé and S 65 Cabriolet (fuel consumption combined: 11.9 and 12.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 279 and 272 g/km) have received a visual update with the Panamericana grille. The AMG 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine retains its output of 463 kW (630 hp) and delivers a maximum torque of 1000 newton metres.

"Having already undertaken major development work on our S-Class Saloon to further enhance driving performance and individuality, we are now making the same changes to the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet. The extensive modifications are designed to strengthen our leading position in this dream car segment in terms of driving dynamics, performance, equipment and comfort on long journeys. The S 65 Coupé and Cabriolet with their high-torque 6.0-litre V12 biturbo engine remain the most elite form of the S-Class," says Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
