The new Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds and this tough beauty will launch in India in early May. Here’s everything you need to know about the new Mercedes-AMG.
You set the pace. Your vehicle makes the rest possible: with catapult-like acceleration accompanied by the powerful bass of the new, switchable AMG performance exhaust system with double tailpipe trim elements. A luxury vehicle could scarcely be more emotional. And you are sitting right in the midst of it. The new Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds thanks to its 450 kW (612 hp) and 900 Nm powerful AMG 4.0-liter V8 Biturbo engine.
We wanted to create more than an automobile. It became a symbol of modern luxury: the Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+. The AMG-typical front with large air inlets at the jet wing, as well as the characteristic grille with AMG logo, already make the observer’s eyes twinkle. The design credo of our work is clearly visible throughout the entire side view, right up to the rear of the vehicle: luxurious dynamics.
Sporty design features dominate the exclusive Mercedes-AMG exterior. The distinctively styled front end radiates superior performance with its radiator grille in high-gloss chrome and AMG front apron with the black jet wing. Voluminous air inlets include two transverse fins for optimized engine cooling.
Even when viewed from the side, the Mercedes-AMG exterior is made more dynamic by the “V8 BITURBO 4MATIC+” lettering and individually styled AMG side sill panels. The 48.3 cm (19-inch) AMG 10-spoke forged wheels in titanium gray and polished allow a view of the generously dimensioned AMG high-performance composite braking system with gray brake calipers. The rear view rounds off the dynamic looks of the Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+. The AMG rear apron with black diffuser insert surrounds the two chrome-plated twin tailpipe trim elements of the switchable AMG Performance exhaust system. The high-grade trim strip in high-gloss chrome adds an elegant visual accent.
How hot are those wheels?

AMG High-Performance Composite Braking System.
Large, internally ventilated and perforated brake discs provide excellent deceleration. The composite design improves resistance to fading even under extreme conditions and reduces unsprung masses on the wheels. Upon request, the brake calipers are available in red.
- The AMG high-performance ceramic composite braking system ensures extremely short stopping distances, a precise pressure point, and outstanding fade resistance even under extreme operating conditions.
- The AMG ceramic high-performance composite braking system offers racetrack braking performance accompanied by weight savings of around 40% over conventional composite brake discs.
– Front axle: Ceramic composite disc sized 420 x 40 mm, with a six-piston fixed caliper, internally ventilated and perforated
– Rear axle: Ceramic composite disc sized 360 x 32 mm, with a one-piston floating caliper, internally ventilated and perforated
– Including specially painted brake calipers with “AMG Carbon Ceramic” lettering
AMG Exhaust System.
Whether the sonorous sound typical of AMG or a restrained noise generation, the sound of the AMG Performance exhaust system fully adapts to the currently selected drive program by means of three variably adjustable exhaust flaps. The driver can also change the sound characteristics with the press of a button. This optional equipment allows a maximum expansion of the soundscape from comfortable to highly emotive.
Three exhaust flaps allow for even greater differentiation of the sound characteristics. The sound characteristics are dependent on the currently selected drive program extending from rich in drive programs C and S, to emphatically sporty in mode S+. This is controlled by means of a variably adjustable exhaust flap without loss of power. The exhaust flaps are controlled depending on both engine speed and load, ensuring a 100% power delivery. If desired, the cold start noise can be reduced in drive programs C and S. A double-declutch (in S) and controlled misfire (in S+) emphasize the sporty characteristics of the particular drive programs.
With high-gloss black lacquered design elements, the AMG Night package emphasizes the expressiveness and sportiness of the vehicle. Its elements are: Trim strip on the jet wing of the front spoiler in high-gloss black, inserts in AMG side spoilers in high-gloss black, exterior mirror housings in high-gloss black, trim strip of the rear spoiler in high-gloss black, black chrome double tailpipe trim elements.
From any perspective, the AMG Carbon package exterior features sporty, distinctive accents with high-quality applications made from genuine carbon. Its elements are: the Jet wing of the front spoiler in carbon as well as exterior mirror housing in carbon, insert in the side spoilers in carbon, an upper insert of the rear spoiler in carbon.
