Mercedes-AMG S 63 Ε-Performance: S-Class plug-in hybrid with surprising Formula 1 power

Another car with hybrid technology from Formula 1 was presented by Mercedes-AMG. After the GT 63 SE Performance four-door coupe and the C 63 SE Performance medium sedan, it was the turn of the S-Class to “enjoy” specific benefits with the launch of the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Ε-Performance.

The new Mercedes-AMG S 63 Ε-Performance brings together and shelters under its imposing silhouette the latest technology in the field of plug-in hybrid drive systems, composing the most powerful and capable S-Class ever brought to the real world by the German manufacturer.

The vehicle is equipped with a 4-liter V8 on the front axle and an electric motor on the rear axle, which together deliver 802 horsepower and 1,430 Nm of torque.

At the same time, however, the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Ε-Performance has a larger battery, the HPB 150.

With a useful capacity of 13.1 kWh, it offers an electric range of up to 33 km. AMG S 63 E Performance is equivalent to a supercar: 0-100 km/h in 3.3 seconds and a top speed of 290 km/h (with AMG Driver Package).

The strengths of the most powerful S-Class are not limited to the above specifications, as a series of technologies take over the power to pass safely on the road: standard is the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive, the AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension, the AMG ACTIVE System of RIDE CONTROL tilt limitation, but also four-way active steering.

A series of interventions in the bodywork and passenger cabin “testify” to the power of the car: the AMG grille, the 21-inch wheels, the quad exhaust, the rear diffuser, the sports seats with upholstery and leather stitching, the sports steering wheel , red ambient lighting.

The bodywork of the Mercedes-AMG S 63 Ε-Performance received greater care, with a aluminum structure structurally reinforcing the lower part of the engine.

At the same time, an additional cross member between the front suspension towers contributes to increased rigidity, while a carbon fiber enclosure, which is used to house the battery in the trunk floor adds further benefits in this area.
