Just a day after Mercedes-Benz announced the start of production of the 2014 S-Class at its Sindelfingen plant, a video that has ‘unintentionally’ previewed the 2014 S63 AMG sedan has gone viral and given us glimpse what the production version will look like when it is launched.
The video reveals subtle yet evident tweaks to the standard model with several aerodynamic changes of which the lack of fins in the air vents look most predominant. The bigger alloy wheels reminiscent of the AMG badge and the V8 bi-turbo lettering on the sides give way for more credibility to the conspiracy. But the important and obvious cue is the "S63" label on the boot giving clear indications that the AMG spec version of the super sedan will soon follow the launch of the S-Class. Previous spy shots had already revealed the S 63 AMG under testing with its quad-exhaust tips, uprated brake rotors and lowered suspension.
The S63 is expected to follow the same lines of the recently revealed E63 AMG with the power expected to come from a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 557bhp. The engine will be mated to the AMG ‘Speedshift’ seven-speed automatic transmission.
The Affalterbach tuners are keen on transforming their portfolio to a full all-wheel-drive line up and so the S63 like the E63 AMG is expected to house a lighter and more performance-oriented setup of the 4Matic system.
We expect that Mercedes-Benz will launch the incredibly powerful yet stunning looking S63 AMG a few months after the 2014 S-Class goes on sale.
