2015-Mercedes-S63-AMG-Coupe-01

For the well-moneyed customer who likes the Accord but prefers a German badge, Mercedes-Benz unveiled the S63 AMG Coupe at the 2014 New York Auto Show.

Under the bonnet lies a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 driving 577 ponies through all four wheels while providing 644 lb-ft of torque to any driver feeling the need to take down a redwood forest or two. Air suspension, lighter weight and optional ceramic brakes add to the performance alongside the usual AMG enhancements.

As for how much to pay for this experience, look forward to spending somewhere around $150,000 when the S63 AMG Coupe arrives in showrooms.

    That’s right, start droolin’.

    And it’s ONLY 150K+.

    And it comes in three fresh exciting colors: white, silver, and black.

    Not sure if the “Designio” Package is still available, but for another meager 20K, you can get a weird blue or red, in which no six figure earner in the US would ever be caught dead in (much to Kanye’s dismay).

    Afterall: you don’t want people to mistake you for a limo driver!

    Nothing like having a speedometer that shows you speeds up to 300% of the speed limit.

    At this pricepoint, isn’t the blue lighting inside a little… garrish? I’m all for some nice accent/ambient lighting but this just seems a little too much.

    Mercedes-Benz Deutschland (Germany) has a configurator for S-Class Coupé already up and running, including S63 4Matic Coupé a several weeks ago. I don’t know how could anyone miss that one?

    The price for S63 4Matic Coupé starts at €170,586.50 or $235,753.95 (or €138,175.07 or $190,961.04 excluding 19% sales tax).

    I wonder what the curb weight is. It looks bit hefty from the pictures.

    Never seen the coupe in person, but my one big gripe with the new sedan is the basic lack of a usable trunk. The more narrowed back end seems to have made it so small that I don’t think two golf bags could even fit in the back easily. This is with factory run flats and no spare tire to boot. Kind of a minor point of contention, but would be an instant deal breaker for me.

    Nice to see the updated interior though, it’s gotta be the first S-class interior since the W140 generation that actually befits a car of this price.

      You don’t need a large trunk or boot.

      By the time you deliver your first load, then come back with your second load, you still beat your wife in the Camry to wherever you are going.

    Am I the only one that thinks it looks like a BMW in the front and the rear? The interior is excellent though.

    Love the new Merc design language. Still not a fan of LCD dashes, but gorgeous.

    The German’s do build the best ‘muscle’ cars/sedans in the world.

    They really know how to blend power and performance……..at a cost.

    That’s why Australia is in first place for performance vs value vs practicality (sedans!).

    These cars are fast and can go around curves and bends fast.
