Accelerating from zero to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, the CLS63 AMG S-Model leaves most competitors behind. Visually, the AMG top-of-the-line model looks more dominant and athletic than before.

Performance on a par with a sports car and superlative emotive appeal are combined with hallmark Mercedes everyday practicality, space for up to five passengers, and a large, variable luggage compartment. The S-Models come as standard with performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive.

The 2015 CLS63 AMG S-Model is powered by a biturbo 5.5-liter V8 engine with 577 hp (430 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. It is mated to a 7-speed MCT transmission: Mercedes-AMG claims a manual up- or downshift - initiated by the driver on the steering-wheel gearshift paddle - is completed faster than ever before. Equipped with the four drive modes "C" (Controlled Efficiency), "S" (Sport), "S+" (Sport plus) and "M" (Manual), the ECO start/stop function and RACE START, the power transmission is said to offer "the ultimate in variability and tailor-made dynamism".

All facelifted CLS63 AMG models will go on sale from the end of June 2014 in Europe; the market launch is scheduled for the end of September.

Striking Exterior Design for 2015 CLS63 AMG S-Model

The powerful 2015 CLS63 AMG S-Model has a striking exterior design: features include exclusive 10-spoke alloy wheels, painted in matt titanium grey with high-sheen rim flange. Other hallmark S-Model distinguishing features include the A-Wing in high-gloss black, side sill panel inserts in silver chrome, red-painted brake calipers and the AMG logo on the boot lid with contrasting black "S".

Interior: Quality Taken to New Heights

As in the past, the 2015 CLS63 AMG S-Model is differentiated from the other variants with striking details: for instance, only the S-Model has grey contrasting topstitching on the AMG sports seats, the door center panels, the armrests on the doors and the center console if black interior appointments are specified.

Silver seat belts are also fitted in conjunction with a black interior.

The AMG performance steering wheel in black nappa leather with flattened bottom section comes with grip areas in Alcantara and grey contrasting topstitching.

Exclusive, embossed AMG emblems adorn the front head restraints on the AMG sports seats.

The AMG instrument cluster features an "S AMG" logo in the 320-km/h speedometer and red highlights. White illuminated AMG door sill panels and AMG floor mats round off the exclusive appointments.

AMG 4MATIC All-Wheel Drive Standard on the S-Model

Performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive - standard on the CLS63 AMG S-Models and as an option for the remaining variants - distributes the engine torque to send 33 percent to the front axle and 67 percent to the rear axle. The rear-biased power distribution provides for the signature AMG high driving dynamics and superlative driving enjoyment. The 3-stage ESP is specially tuned to the permanent all-wheel drive. In "SPORT Handling" mode and with "ESP OFF" the ESP Dynamic Cornering Assist applies the brakes to selected wheels to promote high agility: while cornering, targeted short braking intervention at the inside rear wheel helps the vehicle to corner with precision. This prevents irritating understeer when turning into bends.

Mercedes-AMG goes even one step further on the CLS63 AMG S-Model. In keeping with its "Driving Performance" brand claim, a limited-slip rear differential is fitted on the rear axle. The result is a further increase in traction that provides even better driving dynamics and more driving pleasure, in particular on the racetrack.
