Mercedes’ AMG performance offshoot plans to offer even more potent S-model variants of its cars in its future line-up.
AMG boss Ola Kallenius revealed that the S-model variants would become a staple part of AMG’s line-up in the future on the eve of the Geneva motor show.
The first Mercedes AMG S-model, the E63 AMG S-model, is making its European debut at the Geneva show. The E63 AMG S-model produces 577bhp from its twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 engine, as opposed to the 549bhp from the standard E63 AMG’s engine.
The S-model badge is effectively a replacement for the ‘Performance Package’ offered on AMG models. With S-model, it is now marketed as a standalone model rather than as a feature of the options list.
