2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG

For Chief Execs In One Hell Of A Hurry We've finally calmed down from thrashing the all-new, front-wheel-drive-biased, 4Matic A45 and CLA45 from Mercedes-Benz's AMG performance division. Our driving experiences were good and, above all, more responsive than any mainline AMG model in memory – both cars took a little getting used to dynamically, but getting comfortable didn't take long. Now we've thrust ourselves into the driver's seat of AMG's offering at the other end of the spectrum – the new S63 AMG with its decidedly rear-biased 4Matic all-wheel drive and extended... Read More

    Let us pause as I toss a Kleenex to the owners of Mercedes-Benz's $166,900 S600 and $222,000 S65 AMG models. The quickest S-Class is not fitted with a twin-turbocharged V12 driving its rear wheels. Instead, that honor goes to this $141,450 S63 AMG, which arrives with a twin-turbocharged V8, a wickedly quick multi-clutch transmission and surefooted ...

    Mercedes-Benz has released its first advertisement for the S63 AMG Coupe, and well, it's a bit weird. It shows the S63 blazing along a runway, accompanied by the throbbing sound of its 5.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V8. All told, the imagery is pretty standard, showing the car from inside and out in a pretty, highly stylized manner. What's strange, though, ...
