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.”
The 2014 CLS 63 AMG with rear-wheel drive will arrive in April 2013, with the all-wheel-drive CLS 63 AMG arriving in June.
