Pictures of the new Mercedes S63 AMG leaked on the internet
15 June 2013

The 2014 Mercedes S63 AMG has again been leaked in internet photos, having already been accidentally revealed in a promotional video.

The video, which announces the start of new S-class production at Mercedes’ Sindelfingen facility in Germany, shows a worker driving the car off the production line.

A first look at the hottest S-class variant shows the car will feature a few visual clues as to its performance potential. The video reveals larger AMG alloy wheels and S63 badging.

Like the current car, it will be powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 engine. It is likely to develop 536bhp or 563bhp when specified with an optional performance upgrade.

A four-wheel-drive 4Matic version will be available, but the UK market will only receive the S63 in a rear-drive configuration.

Although reportedly taken from a Mercedes-Benz press release on the car, the absence of on-car badging on these photos have led internet rumours to suggest they may not be official.

Our Verdict

The S-class is a benchmark in comfort and equipment. XJ is better to drive though

The Mercedes S-Class is a fine luxury car and a technological masterstroke. It is calm but rewarding

I bet some chaffeurs will be very happy about this new model.

I dont see why they wont just bring four wheel drive to all their models if its possible as an option. All these big AMGs have lots of power and just spin the wheels while every electronic aid tries to cut the power. Surely this would really broaden the appeal of cars like this and save customers alot in tyres.

or does Merc not going to offer the S600 and S65 now.. would be a great shame..
