“Perpetuating the success of the CLS 63 AMG, the new Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG ‘S’ sets new standards in design, performance and efficiency. With it’s impressive athletic appearance and distinctive exterior and interior design, the CLS 63 AMG ‘S’ offers a truly unique experience at the very benchmark of modern motoring.

Harnessing the performance-oriented AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine, the CLS 63 AMG ‘S’ generates a maximum output of 430 kW, and 800 Nm of torque to accelerate from 0 – 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds in the Coupé, and 4.2 seconds in the Shooting Brake. The electronically limited top speed in both variants is 250 km/h, however an optional driver’s package is available which increases the top speed to 300km/h.
