2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S
Combining the size and styling of Mercedes’ best sedans with the heart of a crazed cheetah, the E63 AMG S-Model is a true connoisseur’s vehicle. To get you moving down the road, the car is powered by a massive 5.5-liter bi-turbo V-8, which cranks out 577 horsepower, and a mind-shattering 590 lb-ft of torque. We’ve had it on the track, and can tell you, this thing is a monster.
Shifting is handled deftly by a 7-speed AMG Speedshift MCT transmission, and it stops on a dime thanks to AMG’s performance braking system. Inside the car, you’ll find a wealth of luxury features, including 14-way leather seats with active ventilation, black ash trim, multicolor LED ambient lighting, dual-zone climate controls, and a power sunshade on the rear window.
AMG styling touches include 19-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels, massive front-end air intakes, a double-crossbar grill, full LED headlamps, and quad chrome exhaust pipes. There’s also a specialized AMG instrument panel, focused on performance driving.
Standard tech includes adaptive brake assist to help drivers apply the correct amount of pressure to prevent collisions, active parking assist, and a system which monitors the driver’s awareness and can automatically alert them if they appear to be drowsy.
