We saw the sedan version of Mercedes-Benz's uber-high-performance S65 AMG at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show. Today, the coupe version of the 621-horsepower luxury sports car bows.
Like the sedan, the coupe's bold curves and dominating face are accented with high-sheen chrome, gloss black trim and plenty of AMG badging. It also shares the sedan’s powertrain: a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12, good for 621 hp, 738 pounds-feet of torque, a zero-to-60 mph time of 4 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph.
Inside, four passengers are treated to AMG exclusive sport seats trimmed in Nappa leather with diamond-patterned upholstery. Leather also lines the roof, dashboard and door panels.
The 2015 S65 AMG Coupe goes on sale at the end of the year; prices haven't been announced but they'll be steep. Mercedes recently released 2015 pricing for part of its S-Class lineup and prices range from $95,325 for the base V-8-powered S550 sedan to $167,825 for the V-12-powered base S600 sedan; all prices include destination.

"The brute power, luxurious roominess and remarkable technology of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4Matic make it a superior — albeit expensive — choice among ultra-luxury full-size sedans," said Cars.com reviewer Aaron D. Bragman. Check out Bragman's review for more.

Forget kid in a candy store; these "kids" got to spend the day someplace much sweeter: the racetrack. The Cars.com Editorial team took its annual pilgrimage to Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., for the Midwest Automotive Media Association's spring rally.
With two days of track, street and off-road driving and nearly 100 cars available for testing, there were plenty of favorites from the event. Continue below for a gallery of the highlights.
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG coupe, the track-tuned version of the "regular" S-Class Coupe, is like a sequel to a Reagan-era action movie: more of what excited people about the original, but amped up to the extreme. Luxury-performance die-hards can get in on the action later this week at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, where the S63 AMG coupe was unveiled today.
What onlookers will see outside is not dissimilar to the S-Class Coupe, save for additional air-cooling grilles, side sills and a rear diffuser, along with larger wheels and AMG badging. Its inside is also amped up with unique graphics and fonts on the displays, exclusive Nappa leather sport seats, a three-spoke sport steering wheel and more AMG badging. Under the hood, however, drivers will find quite a difference in the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 — mainly in the form of 577 horsepower and 664 pounds-feet of torque, propelling the coupe from zero to 60 mph in an exhilarating 3.9 seconds.

Mercedes-Benz introduced the new S-Class Coupe at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show and has just unveiled a more potent performance version. The new 2015 S63 4Matic AMG coupe takes everything that is already outstanding about the S-Class Coupe and cranks it up to crazy levels in the way only Mercedes-Benz's in-house AMG tuners can.

Mercedes-Benz has given the world a sneak peek at its new S-Class Coupe ahead of its debut at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Show. The long, swoopy two-door is based on the company's S-Class sedan, which was introduced in 2013, but shares no sheet metal with the big four-door. Previewed by the S-Class Coupe Concept shown initially at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new coupe is remarkably similar to the concept in its production form.
The fourth model in Mercedes-Benz's S-Class stable is the new top-line twin-turbo V-12 version, the S600. It returns to the lineup for 2015 with long, elegant lines outside and an overabundance of convenience and tech features inside. It'll be tough to find a more comfortable, luxurious flagship, says Cars.com reviewer Aaron Bragman. Check out the video for more.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class family continues to grow for 2015 as the S600 joins the S550, S65 and S63, bringing with it even more oomph than its already-formidable predecessor. The big, regal, powerful-looking sedan's behemoth 6.0-liter V-12 now makes 523 horsepower and 612 pounds-feet of torque. The automaker's standard Magic Body Control suspension uses cameras to monitor road conditions and adapts to them.
Inside, features include a touchpad for inputting commands to the multimedia system and a standard head-up display. Standard safety equipment includes lane-keep assist, blind spot warning, cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control and a pedestrian recognition system with automatic braking. The S600 hits dealerships in the spring.
