S63 AMG on location-03

Here’s a gallery of the Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG on location in Austria, where the media presentation for the limo took place. Looking every bit like a boss, the AMG-tuned W222 S-Class manages to look sleek yet striking against the pretty mountain backdrop.

Announced in July, the W222 S 63 AMG is powered by a 5.5 litre V8 twin-turbo engine like the one found in the E 63 AMG and E 63 AMG S-Model, but with even more power and torque – in the S-Class it does 585 hp and 900 Nm. That’s good for 0-100 km/h in 4.4 seconds for the standard variant and 4.0 seconds flat for the all-wheel drive 4MATIC.

The M157 engine is mated to an AMG Speedshift MCT seven-speed automatic with three modes – C (Controlled Efficiency), S (Sport) and M (Manual). Watch aficionados, check out the cool IWC centre console clock. We’re not so sure about the steering wheel though, which looks like a face with a big grin.
