The new S63 AMG 4MATIC has 49 more horsepower than the last generation and is also 220 pounds lighter. Mercedes also says that it is now more fuel efficient as well. All that power is put to the ground via a 7-speed transmission with three modes: C” (Controlled Efficiency), “S” (Sport) and “M” (Manual). The S63 AMG 4MATIC comes standard with all-wheel-drive and the S63 AMG 4MATIC is the second AMG model to replace the conventional starter battery with a lithium-ion battery. The lithium-ion battery replaces both the starter battery and the backup battery – resulting in a weight saving of over 44 pounds. It is also the world’s first volume-produced vehicle with this type of battery concept. ALl that power is enough for a 0-60 mph sprint in a quick 3.9 seconds.
