2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe rendered by Khalil Bouguerra

Although Mercedes-Benz engineers have just started to test the new S63 AMG Coupe, Khalil Bouguerra a.k.a. one of the best designers found on the web created a preview of the powerful coupe. The French designer made quite a masterpiece and if the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG will look like this we can say that it will be a best seller.

Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe Concept that was unveiled last month at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new vehicle is expected to get the same engine found on the current S63 AMG. This means that it will be powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine rated at 585 hp and 900 Nm of torque.

Using the 7-speed SPEEDSHIFT MTC sport transmission, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h. The coupe is expected to reach the same speed in 4.2 seconds, while the top speed remains the same.

The brand-new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupé is the most recent model to profit from the systematic implementation of the AMG Lightweight Performance process. Lightweight construction has tapered the car weight by 65 kilograms - despite the fact that the vehicle has a higher yield and broader standard equipment than the previous model. This weight reduction was accomplished with the utilization of a lightweight lithium-ion battery, AMG forged light-alloy wheels and a weight-optimised AMG high-performance composite braking system.

Moreover, the whole external skin and the front end of the body are created of aluminum. The tapered weight enhances driving dynamics and reduces fuel consumption, while the low power-to-weight proportion of 3.41 kg/hp brings about a flawlessly unrivalled performance: the S63 AMG Coupé speeds up from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 to 4.3 seconds, depending on model variation, and proceeds to achieve a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).

As far as peak yield, torque and fuel consumption are concerned, the AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine stays as one of the most effective series-manufactured V8 engines of all. With a yield of 430 kW (585 hp) and 900 Nm of torque, the AMG eight-cylinder unit from the BlueDIRECT engine family satisfies even the most challenging of requirements. Contrasted with the past CL 63 AMG model, engine output has significantly increased by 30 kW (41 hp) and torque has gone up by 100 Nm.

However, the S63 AMG Coupé still expends less fuel: The NEDC consolidated figure of 10.1 liters for every 100 kilometers makes the two-door model the most fuel-effective model in its competitive segment. This decrease of up to 0.4 liters for every 100 kilometers and compliance with the EU6 emissions standard demonstrate that performance, proficiency and environmental compatibility are in no way mutually exclusive at Mercedes-AMG.
