The German luxury car manufacturer Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe has been launched in India at a price of ₹ 2.55 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi). It is the company’s fourth AMG launch of 2018 and Mercedes-Benz India says that there is a lot more to come during the year. The AMG S 63 Coupe will be brought to India as a completely built unit and will be sold in limited numbers. Well, with that kind of a price tag, it, of course, will be one of the most exclusive luxury cars that you can own in the country today. As of now, India will only get the coupe variant of the AMG S 63 but internationally, the car also gets a cabriolet variant.
Under the hood is a new AMG 4.0-litre V8 Bi-turbo petrol engine which replaces the old 5.5-litre V8 engine and is capable of producing max power of 612 bhp and a mammoth 900 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes coupled to AMG Speedshift MCT 9G transmission. And it’s quick too. The AMG S 63 Coupe can sprint from standstill to 100kmph in just 3.5 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 250kmph.
The Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe gets 20-inch forged light-alloy wheels, and these are standard. It might be an AMG, so you do expect some sporty bits and that might make you think it’ll be sparse of features. Well, one tiny detail you forget is that it’s the S-Class we’re talking about and this one is filled to the brim with features. The AMG S63 Coupe gets AMG sports seats in the front and the rear. There’s also the AMG Performance sports steering wheel with 12 o’clock marking, the dashboard, the beltline, the center door panels, the armrests, the center console front and rear and the floor mats.
Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe is in direct rivalry with the competitors like Bentley Continental GT and Aston Martin DB11. Moreover, the question still remains. Will India get the AMG S 63 Cabriolet? Well, that is something only time will tell.
