Following the Mercedes-AMG S 63 and S 65 sedan models this summer, Mercedes-AMG presents the facelift S63 / S65 Coupe and Cabriolet models at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Just like the sedan, the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupé and Cabriolet, Mercedes-AMG’s 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine now produces 612 hp, 27 hp more than the outgoing model.
The S 65 models will still be powered by the same 6.0-liter V12 Biturbo engine, good for 630 hp and 1,000 Nm of torque. Performance numbers for the S 63 4MATIC+ Coupe read 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, while the heavier S 65 takes 4.1 seconds for the same distance.
The most significant design change is the characteristic Panamericana radiator grille at the front, which has been carried over from the Mercedes-AMG GT R. The front apron also received a new design with V-shaped air intakes following the lines of the headlamp housing. The rear of the car will now be lit by brand new OLED taillights.
