A Classy ‘S’

The new S 63 AMG Coupé is the latest car to augment the Mercedes-AMG model range.

Performance, technological advancement, design and craftsmanship are the essence of what Florian Seidler, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Cars South Africa describes as, “another exciting AMG dream car in our luxury segment. With the S-Class Coupé Mercedes-AMG’s model initiative is set to continue at a fast pace in 2014”.

As the most powerful member of the BlueDIRECT engine family, the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine boasts an output of 430 kW and 900 Nm of torque with remarkably low fuel consumption. The curve tilting function, part of the MAGIC BODY CONTROL suspension system, further enhances both driving enjoyment and comfort.

Luxury and design combine to offer an exclusive “Edition 1” version of the S 63 AMG Coupé with a limited edition, exclusive interior package and Swarovski crystals for enhanced vision in the headlights.
