Exclusive Yellow Night Edition of the S 63 Coupé
On the market launch of the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé (left-hand drive only) and S 63 Coupé (right-hand drive only), the exclusive Yellow Night Edition will be available for a period of six months. This special model painted in a choice of selenite grey magno or night black magno is discreetly distinguishable by a yellow trim strip on the exterior mirror housings.
The exclusive impression is reinforced by 7-spoke light-alloy wheels in black with high-sheen rim flanges and the yellow-painted brake callipers of the AMG high-performance composite ceramic braking system, which is standard equipment for the Edition 1.
The model’s special character is also emphasised by the Aerodynamic package with an enlarged front splitter in high-gloss black (in carbon-fibre with Carbon Fibre package) and a spoiler lip in high-gloss black (in carbon-fibre with Carbon Fibre package) on the boot lid, as well as AMG racing stripes (decals) on the vehicle flanks.
High-quality interior with yellow highlights
The interior also features yellow accents on the AMG sports seats in the front and on the rear seats, the AMG Performance sports steering wheel with 12 o’clock marking, the dashboard, the beltline, the centre door panels, the armrests, the centre console front and rear and the floor mats. The Edition badge in the steering wheel bezel draws attention to the special equipment. AMG matt carbon fibre/black piano lacquer trim parts round off the refined and sporty look.
The Exclusive Package is fitted as standard on board. It includes upholstery in Exclusive nappa leather with hallmark AMG diamond design and specifically placed perforation, upper dashboard, centre armrest, front and rear armrests and door centre panels in nappa leather with contrasting topstitching, AMG badges in the front and rear seat backrests, illuminated AMG door sill panels and special AMG floor mats.
The new Performance Coupés and Cabriolets will celebrate their world premiere at the International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt/Main on 12 September 2017.
4.0-litre V-8 biturbo engine with twin-scroll turbochargers
The AMG 4.0-litre V-8 Biturbo engine in the S 63 4MATIC+ Cabriolet and Coupé comes exclusively in the highest performance stage to date rated at 450 kW (612 hp). The peak torque of 900 Nm also represents a new maximum. It is available across a wide rev range between 2750 and 4500 rpm, and thereby provides a sense of superior poise. The sprint from standstill to 100 km/h takes just 3.5 seconds, and the fulminating acceleration continues until the electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h is reached (with AMG Driver’s Package: 300 km/h).
The further advanced AMG 4.0-litre V-8 Biturbo engine utilises well-proven twin-turbo forced induction, with the two chargers not located outside on the cylinder banks, but rather between them in the V of the cylinders. The advantages of the “hot inside V” are a compact engine design, spontaneous response of the turbochargers and low exhaust emissions thanks to optimal airflow to the near-engine catalysts.
Two twin-scroll turbochargers provide even better fresh-mixture cylinder charge. The results are a higher output, more torque already at low engine speeds, and a very spontaneous throttle response.
‘AMG Cylinder Management’ cylinder deactivation system
For maximum efficiency, Mercedes-AMG has equipped the V8 engine in the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé with the AMG Cylinder Management cylinder deactivation system. In the partial-load range, cylinders two, three, five and eight are deactivated, which significantly lowers the fuel consumption.
When the driver has selected the “Comfort” transmission driving mode, the cylinder deactivation system is available in the wide engine speed range from 1000 to 3250 rpm. The AMG main menu on the instrument cluster informs the driver whether the cylinder deactivation system is in use and whether the engine is presently operating in the partial or full-load range. The transition from four to eight-cylinder operation is immediate, fast and imperceptible, so that the passengers do not experience any loss of comfort whatsoever.
Short shift times, high efficiency: the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission
For the first time the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet have been fitted with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission, which convinces with extremely short shift times, lightning reactions to shift paddle commands, a double-clutching function and fast multiple downshifts. A wet start-off clutch replaces the torque converter of the production model. This saves weight and improves the response to the driver’s accelerator pedal input, particularly during acceleration and load changes. It also allows the RACE START function.
