Given that the vehicle is an AMG, the S 63 is powered by AMG’s well-known 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, which is mated to an electric motor mounted on the back axle and a 13.1kWh battery. It is the most powerful S-Class ever, with the latter producing 190 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque on its own. The system output is rated at 802 horsepower and 1,430 Nm. Mercedes claims that its Formula 1 division is the source of the battery technology.

The engine is matched to a 9-speed automatic transmission, and the 4Matic system distributes power to all four wheels. Mercedes claims that the gearbox’s unique “Race Start” function maximizes acceleration from a standstill; the gearbox can reach 100 km/h in 3.3 seconds. The S63 has eight driving modes, including an all-electric mode with a speed limiter set at 125 kph that allows it to travel up to 33 kilometers. In order to improve ride and handling, the S 63 additionally includes air suspension, active roll bars, and rear-axle steering with a maximum steering angle of three degrees. Carbon ceramic brakes are an optional addition.

Over the standard S-Class, the AMG-specific styling changes are also applied to the S 63. This includes a faster front bumper with big air intakes towards the corners and a more pronounced chin, an AMG-spec rear diffuser with quad exhaust pipes, and the Panamericana grille, which features the centrally positioned Mercedes logo—a first for an S-Class.

Additionally, there is a Night exterior package that adds gloss black or dark chrome accents, as well as a Carbon Fiber kit that adds carbon fiber trims to the side sills, rear diffuser, front bumper, and wing mirrors. Twenty-inch, 10-spoke alloy wheels are standard on the S 63; 21-inch wheels are an option.

Interior features include AMG-spec pedals and a new four-spoke steering wheel. A distinctive “Super Sport” theme and AMG and hybrid-specific displays and functionalities are now available with the most recent MBUX software update, which is the biggest update. The centerpiece of the dashboard, as it is with the standard S-Class, is the 12.8-inch OLED touchscreen featuring the waterfall effect. A 4-zone climate control system, a 64-color ambient lighting system, a Burmester 3D surround sound system, and a Level 2 ADAS suite are a few of the standout features.

Executive lounge chairs, a rear seat entertainment package, an augmented reality head-up display with 3D graphics, a detachable tablet on the central armrest that folds down, and folding tables for the back are optional options. Along with a multitude of Nappa leather inside upholstery options, the dash board can be finished in either carbon fiber or wood.
