2020 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG

Wail, owners of 2020 Mercedes-Benz S600 and S65 AMG models. The fastest S-Class has the V12 biturbo engine, but, this honor was awarded this model S63 AMG, the price of which in the US is 8.3 million rubles. The car comes with a bi-turbo engine V8, fantastically fast multi-clutch transmission and reliable all-wheel drive. This 2020 Mercedes-Benz also very massive, with a length slightly more than 5 m, and the weight of 2180 kg. But, as befits a superhero, despite the size, it perfectly combines luxury penthouse and maneuverability of an exotic sports car.

As mentioned above, the heart of the S63 AMG is called “bi-turbo 5.5-liter M157 the V8, it is paired with a seven-speed multi-clutch automatic transmission, which transmits power to all four wheels via wheel drive 4Matic. And, although an engine capacity has less than S600, and the effective power is lower than S65 AMG, S63 at a faster transmission, chassis easier, and the ability to allocate capacity gives it the advantage of acceleration.

Service Pack AMG adds to the price of a standard sedan S550 as much as $ 45,100, but this package includes something more than just a good debugging of the power unit. Improved the Airmatic air suspension, upgraded brakes for better stopping power and better heat dissipation, exhaust open for better ventilation. With the help of the central control panel buttons, you can adjust the chassis settings (Comfort and Sport modes), as well as to change the sensitivity of the power unit in three modes: Comfort, Sport and Manual.

The digital dashboard is decorated with the inscription «AMG», the center armrest is also decorated with embossed AMG logo and the steering wheel trimmed in perforated leather and equipped with gearshift paddles. Despite the fact that Active Multicontour AMG seats have a more pronounced relief, in terms of comfort they have absolutely nothing to lose.

In contrast to the boastful models C-Class in and the E-Class AMG, which declare their power guttural roar of the engine, the S63 behaves frighteningly quiet. Only the most attentive listeners will notice the distant rumble of the engine during start-up, like a clap of thunder 20km from you. Even when the gas pedal is depressed to the limit and passengers are pressed into the seat, exhaust sound does not interfere with normal conversation.

S63 AMG Control gives the driver confidence and sense of superiority. A chance to meet other car of similar size, with the same or greater capacity tend to zero.

Do not expect that such a powerplant would be white and fluffy, like the S550 models below, as mnogomuftovaya gearbox has to deal with 664 lb-ft of torque. In return, you get a magnificent acceleration with incredibly fast switching speed. The manufacturer claims that the car accelerates to 100 km / h in 3.9 seconds, but in reality it seems even faster.

Fuel consumption is 15.68 l / 100 km in the city and 10.23 l / 100 km on the highway. This, of course, not performance small car, but for a car with a power 577l.s. this result deserves applause. A fuel tank capacity of 80 liters allows you to go and see less on gas stations.

Is it all so perfectly? Well, if strongly quibble, I would like a little more trunk. A total of 5 m³, this is barely enough to carry 4 standard suitcase. Another would be to rewrite the code for transmission as drivability at low speeds in Comfort mode, need to be improved – felt a little jerky clutch operation, especially at speeds of 8 to 0 km / h, and vice versa. And I would like a little more open exhaust, for first-class sound reminder about the opportunities hidden in a beautiful design – this stunning car deserves vociferous roar.
