2018 Mercedes S 63 AMG Coupe 4MATIC+ – Drive, Inside and Exterior. Coloration: Designo diamond white vivid
Mercedes-AMG is updating its S-Class Coupés and Cabriolets with a bunch of technical and visible highlights. The brand new-design entrance finish is dominated by the Panamericana radiator grille, which now provides the two-door, luxury-class Efficiency automobiles an much more impartial look. Within the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet (mixed gas consumption: 9.three and 10.1 l/100 km; mixed CO2 emissions: 211 and 229 g/km) the AMG four.Zero-litre V8 biturbo engine with twin-scroll turbochargers and cylinder deactivation (Coupé) supersedes the earlier 5.5-litre V8 biturbo. Regardless of the smaller displacement, the brand new engine places out 450 kW (612 hp) and thus precisely 20 kW (27 hp) greater than the previous mannequin. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission can also be new to the Coupé and Cabriolet, as is the absolutely variable all-wheel drive system AMG Efficiency 4MATIC+.
On the identical time with the brand new eight-cylinder Coupé and Cabriolet, the top-of-the-range twelve-cylinder S 65 Coupé and S 65 Cabriolet (mixed gas consumption: 11.9 and 12.Zero l/100 km; mixed CO2 emissions: 279 and 272 g/km) are being given a visible replace with the Panamericana radiator grille. The AMG 6.Zero-litre V12 biturbo engine retains its output of 463 kW (630 hp) and delivers a most torque of 1000 Newton metres.
Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé Technical information at a look:
Engine: four.Zero-litre V-Eight with direct injection, biturbo compelled induction and cylinder deactivation
Displacement: 3982 cc
Output: 450 kW (612 hp) at 5500-6000 rpm
Peak torque: 900 Nm at 2750-4500 rpm
Drive system: AMG Efficiency 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with absolutely variable torque distribution (LHD solely)
Transmission: AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G
Acceleration: Zero-100 km/h three.5 s
Prime velocity: 250 km/h
The AMG four.Zero-litre V-Eight Biturbo engine within the S 63 4MATIC+ Cabriolet and Coupé comes solely within the highest efficiency stage so far rated at 450 kW (612 hp). The height torque of 900 Nm additionally represents a brand new most. It’s out there throughout a large rev vary between 2750 and 4500 rpm, and thereby offers a way of superior poise. The dash from standstill to 100 km/h takes simply three.5 seconds, and the fulminating acceleration continues till the electronically restricted prime velocity of 250 km/h is reached (with AMG Driver’s Package deal: 300 km/h).
The additional superior AMG four.Zero-litre V-Eight Biturbo engine utilises well-proven twin-turbo compelled induction, with the 2 chargers not positioned exterior on the cylinder banks, however moderately between them within the V of the cylinders. Some great benefits of the “scorching inside V” are a compact engine design, spontaneous response of the turbochargers and low exhaust emissions because of optimum airflow to the near-engine catalysts.
Two twin-scroll turbochargers present even higher fresh-mixture cylinder cost. The outcomes are the next output, extra torque already at low engine speeds, and a really spontaneous throttle response.
For the primary time the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet have been fitted with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission, which convinces with extraordinarily quick shift occasions, lightning reactions to shift paddle instructions, a double-clutching perform and quick a number of downshifts.
The LHD variations of the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet come as customary with absolutely variable AMG Efficiency 4MATIC+ all-wheel-drive. This clever system combines some great benefits of totally different drive ideas: The absolutely variable torque cut up between entrance and rear axle, one other first, ensures not optimum traction. What’s extra: The motive force can also be capable of depend on excessive dealing with stability and a excessive stage of security below all circumstances, within the dry, within the moist or in snow. The transition from rear-wheel to all-wheel drive and vice versa is seamless, as a result of the clever management is built-in into the general car system structure.
An electro-mechanically managed clutch connects the completely pushed rear axle variably to the entrance axle. The very best torque cut up is repeatedly computed based on the driving circumstances and driver’s enter. The Efficiency Coupé and Cabriolet can subsequently be pushed in a repeatedly variable means from traction-oriented all-wheel drive to purely rear-wheel drive. Transitions are seamless and based mostly on a complicated matrix. Alongside traction and lateral dynamics, the all-wheel drive additionally improves the longitudinal dynamics for much more highly effective acceleration.
The RHD variations of the S 63 Coupé and Cabriolet characteristic the brand new engine and the brand new transmission, however are solely out there with rear-wheel drive. The S 65 Coupé and Cabriolet additionally characteristic rear-wheel drive.
