2015 Mercedes S Class Coupe, S 63 AMG India launch on 30th July
2015 Mercedes S Class Coupe, the two-door derivative of what is also known as the world’s best car – S Class, launches in India on July 30, 2015. It will be launched in two options, S 500 and S 63 AMG.
Though the design of S Class coupe has been inspired from the S Class, both cars are visibly different. Where the S Class sedan looks all elegant and classy, the Coupe is a more youthful looking variant, with the same amount of elegance and class on offer.
Both S Class Coupe variants will be launched in India as a CBU. First unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, the two door S 500 will be powered by a 4.7 liter, twin turbo, V8 engine offering 453 bhp peak power and 700 Nm peak torque. This is the same engine which also does duty on the S 500 sedan (four door).
On the other hand, the performance oriented S 63 AMG Coupe, which was first unveiled at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, is powered by a 5.5 liter, twin turbo, AMG V8 engine offering 577 bhp peak power and 900 Nm peak torque. Engine is mated to a 7 speed AMG Speedshift transmission. It can be configured with rear wheel drive or all wheel drive. With rear wheel drive, the S 63 AMG can accelerate from 0 to 100 kmph in 4.2 seconds while with all wheel drive the same is achieved in 3.9 seconds. Both variants have a top speed of 250 kmph.
Apart from the two new S Class variants, Mercedes Benz India will also launch G63 AMG with a new exterior paint shades. All three cars will be launched on the same date, marking the first time that the company will be launching three products on a single day.
