2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe Photo Gallery (33 Photos)


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.

Looks like: A large, handsome CLA-Class coupe
Powertrains: 449-hp, twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V-8, standard all-wheel drive
Hits dealerships: Fall 2014

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.

2015 Mercedes-Benz S600 Photo Gallery (27 Photos)


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.

2015 Mercedes-Benz S600 at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show


Competes with: Jaguar XJ, BMW 7 Series, Audi A8
Looks like: The redesigned S-Class with V-12 badges
Drivetrain: 523-hp, 6.0-liter V-12 engine; seven-speed automatic transmission; rear-wheel drive only
Hits dealerships: Spring 2014

Joining the S-Class lineup for 2015 is the all-new S600, which is back after a year off. Mercedes introduced the redesigned S-Class and S550 first and is now showing off a bigger, more-powerful signature V-12 engine in the S600. The S-Class had six variants when the 2013 model exited to make way for the 2014, and the new version is catching up quickly. The new S600 joins the redesigned V-8-powered S550 and S63, and the also-V-12-powered S65.

Since 1991 the S600 got power from an engine with three times the cylinders of your typical four-banger economy car. For 2015, the 6.0-liter V-12 and its 523-horsepower and 612 pounds-feet of torque make up the most significant difference between it and the S550. The numbers are also up half a liter and 13 hp from the 2013 version, and horsepower is up 74 hp from the S550.

Jaguar Spoofs Mercedes' Chicken Ad


It's always fun to see car marketers duke it out, be in on billboards (and the occasional balloon) or ever-popular ads gone viral. Audi is usually the one taking swipes at its German competitors, but Jaguar has the latest ad — and it goes right after the icon of all luxury sedans, Mercedes-Benz's redesigned S-Class.

Naturally, you'd expect to see lots of fast-paced shots where an XJ thumps an S550 'round the Nürburgring, no? Well, there's none of that. In fact, no single vehicle is shown.

But there are chickens. Lots of chickens.

2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Photo Gallery


The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG pretty much looks like the S63 AMG got spiffed up to go out on the town — but don't let that air of sophistication fool you. How the S65 really wants to spend its evening is eliciting visceral thrills courtesy of its twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V-12, good for 621 horsepower, 738 pounds-feet of torque, a zero-to-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. For what it's worth, Mercedes says the new S65 — now debuting simultaneously at both the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show and the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show — is the "world's most fuel-efficient V-12 high-performance saloon" relative to its power; that's due in part to weight savings afforded by its use of a lithium-ion battery instead of a conventional starter and backup battery.

Exterior styling cues that make the S65 stand out visually include AMG forged light-alloy wheels, high-gloss chrome adorning the grille, aerodynamic elements, front splitter, side sill panels, rear diffuser and the twin tailpipes of the AMG sports exhaust system. Luxurious appointments in the cabin include Nappa leather upholstery with an exclusive diamond design and delineated perforations, along with an AMG sports steering wheel, instrument cluster and analogue clock. New tech innovations include a head-up display and an easy-to-operate touchpad with a hand-rest-integrated input area. Check out the gallery below; Cars.com photos by Evan Sears.
