The S-Class enters new territory. In record time..
With the S 63 E PERFORMANCE, performance hybrid technology yields newfound power.
It's always been the ultimate sedan. But when Mercedes-AMG takes on the S-Class, "ultimate" means something a little extra.

As always, Affalterbach's engineers look to Formula 1TM to see how track refinements can challenge the everyday road. The result - the S 63 E PERFORMANCE - is the most powerful S-Class ever, a consummate blend of luxury, comfort, and brute strength.

Striking at first glance, the S 63 now sports the AMG-specific grille common to the rest of the brand's lineup. Jet wing-inspired air inlets, 21-inch AMG forged wheels, and fluted twin tailpipes announce its aggressive "63" credentials. Inside, Nappa Leather upholsteries, an AMG Performance Steering Wheel, first-class rear cabin, and multicontour seats provide a luxury environment that has been honed to complement a relentless focus on performance.

And what performance it is, with hybrid interaction between engine and battery pushing the sedan to pulse-pounding limits. AMG's E PERFORMANCE system puts a handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 at the front and an electric motor at the rear. Together, they make 791 hp and 1,055 lb-ft of torque, and enable acceleration from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds1,2. The impressive torque results from the positioning of the electric motor: By placing it at the rear, it bypasses the 9-speed transmission and converts its energy into immediate propulsion.

This positioning also enables more agility and fluid handling, making all that power supremely agile. It's enhanced by seven AMG DYNAMIC SELECT modes, allowing the driver to determine the right experience for the circumstances: from driving all electric to maximum boost performance in "Sport+" mode. The driver also has control over the energy recuperation, with four different levels allowing for maximum "one-pedal" efficiency at one end and minimum resistance while coasting at the other.

No matter how you choose to drive it, the S 63 E PERFORMANCE will feel like nothing you've ever driven before.

(1) Preliminary numbers.

(2) Stated rates of acceleration are estimated based upon manufacturer's track results and may vary depending on model, environmental and road surface conditions, driving style, elevation and vehicle load.

(3) Obey local speed and traffic laws.

(4) Some systems are optional. Even the most advanced safety systems may not be sufficient to avoid an accident. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for system alerts before braking or taking evasive action, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance. See Operator's Manual for system operating speeds and additional information and warnings.

(5) AMG Track Pace is not for use on public roads. Always obey local laws. See Operator's Manual for additional warnings and information.
