The Mercedes-Benz CLS is based on the E-Class, so it makes sense that the 2014 CLS 63 AMG get the same upgrades as the E63 AMG. What that means is that the CLS 63 AMG is also gets avaialable all-wheel-drive and the more powerful S-Model, which generates 577 horsepower from its 5.5L V8, up from 550 horsepower in the standard CLS63 AMG. The 2014 CLS 63 AMG S-Model accelerates from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. In addition to the increase in output, this special edge for the S-Model is also attributable in no small part to the performance-oriented all-wheel drive with a power distribution ratio of 33 to 67 percent (front/rear axle).

"The S-Models in particular represent the most attractive proposition in the segment," notes Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "With its superlative power and torque ratings and the new performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the CLS 63 AMG is without parallel in its Coupé and Shooting Brake variants. Our AMG 5.5-litre V8 engine remains the most efficient series production V8 engine in the world. The new, customised model variants provide greater scope than ever for individual solutions."
