G-Power Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe boasts 705 PS and 738 lb-ft. of torque

A new level of performance awaits the new Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe, thanks to the new G-Power Bi-Tronik 5 V1 Plug & Play module. As if the V8, 5.5L, twinturbo is not already powerful, the German auto tuner has thought of combining luxury and performance by adding this unique power module to the Coupe’s engine.

As we said earlier, the Mercedes-AMG S63 has become more powerful. We’re talking about the new 705 hp from the previous 585hp. For this car, the G-Power module is tapped as soon as the engine is engaged in full throttle.

The mapping system gets activated and builds a new surge of power to the engine around this time. However, it won’t fully activate when the coolant goes beyond its normal maximum temperature. The module only becomes active again when a certain level of oil temperature is specified. So this is why the Bi-Tronik Plug & Play module really makes a lot of sense.

Come to think of it. The module is inactive under partial load or while the data travels from the factory set ECU until it goes to the engine. Moreover, the Plug & Play design (of the G-Power module) makes it simple to install or uninstall.

On full load, the G-Power Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe can produce an incredible 705 PS and 738 pound feet of torque. This can make the luxury coupe go from 0-62 miles per hour in as short as 3.8 seconds. Isn’t it impressive? Wait till you read this. Apparently, the same vehicle also claims a top speed of 330 kilometres per hour.

The Mercedes G-Power AMG S63 Coupe may be offered with the optional G-Power Hurricane RR alloy wheels. Instead of equipping the luxury coupe with accessories that could ruin everything, G-Power went for the wheels and they did a great job.

Measuring 21 inches in diameter, this lightweight forged aluminium double spoke wheels are wrapped with 255/35 R21 Michelin tyres for the front while the rear gets 295/30 R21. The G-Power Hurricane RR wheels have several colours to choose from. Also offered is the 23-inch wheel size made of the same 6061-grade aluminium.

G-Power module can be purchased at 5,589 euros. We think the price for this upgrade is reasonable considering that the standard coupe originally comes with just 585hp and 900 lb.ft. of torque. Since the “plug & play” actually means you can use the module only when you think you feel like it, this is another advantage.
