Why the new S63 is the ultimate AMG!

At last, the brand-new S63 has actually landed … now with a hybrid twist!

Not simply an S63, this is now the S63 E-Peformance. It's the latter bit that hints towards the power of this German high-end machine.

A familiar 4.0-litre twin-turbo engine sits under the bonnet, however it's now likewise paired with an electrical motor at the rear axle. It's a comparable setup to the latest GT 4-Door, nevertheless here the two combine to produce 802hp and 1,430 Nm of torque! The outcome? A declared 0-60mph time of 3.3 seconds, and an excellent 180mph leading speed.

As an outcome of all the batteries and the motor though, weight is up too – with the brand-new S63 tipping the scales at a whopping 2,520 kg. Gulp.

There are a few subtle AMG fine-tunes to the S63. Together with a brand-new grille, it gets AMG-specific wheels and an intimidating quad-exit exhaust pipeline that's a dead giveaway to the performance concealing below the skin.

Inside, it's as glamorous as any S-Class ought to be – albeit with an AMG steering wheel and some brand-new screens to include that efficiency touch.

The cost is big however, starting at ₤ 186,015. A heavy rate to pay, or a rewarding premium? Stick with Mat to find out!

    Despite the modern tech in this w223, there is something more stately or muscular about the aesthetics of the w222

    Let’s appreciate this V8 while we have it. Crisp lines, chrome is just enough. I have to admit, the design has grown on me

    I was happy when I heard it is 4.0 V8, for a second I thought it will go on the same path the new C63 amg is going

    MATT when you push the passenger seat to the front, doesn’t it obscure the driver’s view to the right and the door mirror?

      It does. The car will keep flashing a warning to the driver to either move the seat back or remove the headrest.

      Well now they are 1200 more pounds than those old AMG cars which were always the heaviest to begin with. It’s all a wash.

      I think 500 horses on 2.5 bloody tons would make such car just moderately speedy, nowhere near impressively fast

    The W222 was absolutely perfection, especially the S65 AMG. But at least the W223 S63 carry over it’s wheels like on this model 😍

    The lazy throttle and transmission response is typical in Comfort mode for non-hybrid Merc models too.
    Yes you can use Sport mode and it gives a throttle pedal that is actually responsive but the problem then is that the transmission uses the entire rev range of the engine before shifting gears…..
    There should be a drive mode between Comfort and Sport tbh.

    Also think that in the AMG version of the s class you also sit a bit more in the front behind the wheel than in the back. Fortunately, there is still a v8 in it, although in the past that could be a v12.

    My ’22 GLE53 exhibits the same thing when coming to a stop where it feels like the rear is doing it’s own thing when the car comes to a stop. Really strange feeling. Great video by the way.
