The AMG sport exhaust system fulfills specific driver requirements as it has automatic logic-controlled exhaust flaps in both rear silencers. When the transmission is in “C” (Controlled Efficiency) mode, the flaps remain enclosed under most circumstances, where the eight-cylinder biturbo engine’s noise is more understated.

The rear-biased power distribution provides the trademark AMG high driving characteristics and superlative driving satisfaction along with boosting acceleration from a standing start. The all-wheel drive likewise enhances driving safety on damp or wintry road surfaces when geared up with winter tires \*\*. Optimum traction is ensured by a multi-disc clutch with a locking result of 37 lb-ft, which takes full advantage of the frictional connection potential of all four wheels.
\*\* all S63 AMG Coupe and Sedan designs come geared up with conventional summertime efficiency tires.
AIRMATIC air suspension.
The S63 AMG Coupe 4MATIC includes the complete air-suspension system AIRMATIC with the adaptive damping system ADS PLUS.

These measures improve the vehicle’s dexterity for high performance driving.
Methodical lightweight building: Available AMG created wheels.

Optional wheels consist of 10-spoke forged wheels painted in titanium gray with a polished surface– 8.5 x 20 at the front and 9.5 x 20 at the rear, with 255/40 R 20 and 285/35 R 20 tires respectively. The forged wheels feature a top quality, screwable and completely integrated wheel bolt cover made of created aluminum. Its shape is similar to a center lock as seen in motorsport. The AMG logo is incorporated into one of the 10 spokes. These created wheels are also offered painted in matte black with a high-sheen rim flange.
AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system as an option for the first time.

Many aerodynamic elements underscore the impressive driving characteristics: the front end is controlled by the three-dimensional AMG “twin-blade” radiator grille in silver shadow (a matte silver surface). Whether in movement or fixed, unique AMG lettering in between the twin-blade lamellas leaves no doubt: this is a high-performance version from Affalterbach.
Together with the lower beltline, these inserts make the S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe exude energy even when it is at a dead stop. Further attractive functions of the side design consist of the large AMG created wheels. “V8 BITURBO” lettering in a new, contemporary typography on the front wings is another trademark AMG design touch.
