Here ‘s what we know:
Swinging the pendulum from ultra-luxury to ultra-performance, the new S63 AMG swaps out the 4.7-liter V-8 in the S550 for AMG’s hand-built twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter unit. It’s good for 577 horsepower and a staggering 664 pounds-feet of torque, which should propel the massive sedan to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. That’s as quick as an Aston Martin Vanquish, if you’re keeping score.
The 12.3-inch display screen, which has replaced gauges in the S-Class, gets exclusive AMG-style graphics and special AMG content that focuses on driving performance and engine information. Some content available on the S550 is also available on the S63, such as the Night View Assist Plus and the Driver Assistance Package, but others are not, such as the new Magic Body Control automatically adjustable suspension system.
