AMG 4.0-Liter-V8-Biturbo Engine.
The AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine in the S 63 4MATIC+ comes exclusively in the highest performance level to date, rated at 450 kW (612 hp). The peak torque of 900 Nm also represents a new maximum. It is available across a wide rev range between 2750 and 4500 rpm, and thereby provides a sense of superior poise. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 3.5 seconds, faster than in any other performance luxury saloon, and the dynamic push in the back does not end before reaching the electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (with AMG Driver's Package: 300 km/h).
The further advanced AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine utilizes well-proven twin-turbo forced induction, with the two chargers located not outside on the cylinder banks, but rather between them in the V of the cylinders. The advantages of the "hot inner V" include a compact engine design, an immediate response from the turbochargers and low exhaust emissions thanks to optimum airflow to the close-coupled catalytic converters.
Two twin-scroll turbochargers provide even better fresh-mixture cylinder charge. The results are a higher output, more torque even at low engine speeds, and a very spontaneous throttle response.
“AMG Cylinder Management” cylinder deactivation system
For maximum efficiency, Mercedes-AMG equipped the V8 engine in the S 63 4MATIC+ with the AMG Cylinder Management cylinder deactivation system. In the partial-load range, cylinders two, three, five and eight are deactivated, which significantly lowers the fuel consumption. With a combined fuel consumption of 8.9 liters and combined CO2 emissions of 203 grams per kilometer, the new S 63 4MATIC+ is among the leaders in its competitive segment.
When the driver has selected the "Comfort" transmission driving mode, the cylinder deactivation system is available in the wide engine speed range from 1000 to 3250 rpm. The AMG main menu on the instrument cluster informs the driver whether the cylinder deactivation system is in use and whether the engine is presently operating in the partial or full-load range. The transition from four to eight-cylinder operation is immediate, fast and imperceptible, so that the passengers do not experience any loss of comfort whatsoever.
AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-Speed Sport Transmission.
With nine speeds as well as RACE START and double-clutching functions, this transmission allows extremely dynamic acceleration and ultra-short shift times as well as a fuel-saving driving style. The systematic further development of hardware and software has made it possible to further optimize the reaction times. This means that the driver's shift commands can be carried out faster than ever before. Gear shift operations are executed with no interruption in tractive power. Ultra-fast, responsive multiple downshifts are another forte of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed sport transmission. The driver can change via kickdown directly from 9th into 6th or from 5th into 2nd gear, for example. The RACE START function supports optimal acceleration from a standstill like at the starting line in motorsport events.
AMG Performance 4MATIC+.
The performance-oriented all-wheel drive with fully variable torque distribution combines optimum traction, hallmark AMG driving dynamics and the ultimate in driving enjoyment. It improves handling safety and adhesion to the roadway on wet or wintry road surfaces Thanks to the fully variable torque distribution, the driver benefits from the advantages of all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive in equal measure. An electronically controlled clutch provides for a variable connection of the permanently driven rear axle with the front axle. The ideal torque distribution is calculated continuously depending on the given driving situation and the driver's wishes. This enables a seamless transition from traction-oriented all-wheel drive to 100% rear-wheel drive. In addition to traction and transverse dynamics, the all-wheel drive also improves the longitudinal dynamics of the vehicle for even more dynamic acceleration.
AMG Sports Suspension Based On AIRMATIC.
Outstanding agility and vehicle control is ensured by the AMG sports suspension, which is based on AIRMATIC, with AMG-specific kinematics, elastokinematics and parameterization of the variable damper control. The driver can select from two settings: for a high level of comfort on long journeys or increasingly sporty and stiff. A progressive piston geometry leads to much higher air spring rates. This reduces body roll and pitching at an early stage for improved vehicle control. The stiff kinematics combined with coordinated damping ensure the best possible handling characteristics right up to the physical limits, even at maximum speed. The greater camber rigidity and higher basic camber counter any tendency to understeer, supporting neutral and agile handling characteristics. To achieve handling characteristics that are virtually independent of the vehicle load, the AMG sports suspension, which is based on AIRMATIC, responds to added weight by increasing the pressure in the air spring. This increases both the spring rate and the spring force. At the same time, the pneumatic all-round level control system ensures a constant vehicle level.
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT.
With the selected drive program, parameters such as the characteristics of the engine, transmission, suspension, ESP®, steering and sound of the exhaust system change to provide an even sportier vehicle set-up: more agile accelerator pedal characteristics with a more direct set-up, shorter shift times and significantly more emotive gear changes. The dynamic characteristics of the vehicle are supported by additional functions such as a double-declutching function, cylinder shut-off, active downshifting and start-up in "Sport" and "Sport+" mode. The last-selected drive program remains active for 4 hours after switching off the vehicle, after which the default setting of the balanced and fuel-efficient "Comfort" mode is enabled. The "Individual" drive program allows drivers to adjust the various parameters, from the steering and powertrain to the suspension, to suit their own requirements. In addition, drivers can use the "M" button to switch straight to manual mode, enabling gear changing using the steering wheel gearshift paddles only. More agility and dynamism are provided by the "Sport" drive program, whose features include sporty, firm suspension tuning with modified shift points. The sporty attributes can be even further enhanced in the "Sport+" drive program. Here, the suspension and powertrain are even more dynamically tuned. The ECO Start/Stop function and coasting mode are deactivated in both programs.
