With the 2014 New York Auto Show looming, Mercedes thought it was the right time to start teasing us with their 2015 S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe. The German car manufacturer has made a series of images available on their Facebook page, and the goal of whetting our appetite has certainly been achieved.
The 2015 Mercedes S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe can be viewed from all angles, well apart from a birds-eye-view that is. She is certainly a beauty to look at, and that engine looks as though it means business.

Saying that, we know the 5.5-liter biturbo V-8 engine can push out an immense 577 horsepower, and for those who have worried about all that power being transferred to the rear wheels need not worry, as this is an all-wheel drive vehicle thanks to the 4MATIC system.
This means that those tires will no longer beg you to slow down and in theory should offer enough traction while putting the car through its paces – but only on a race track please.
Top speed of the all-new Mercedes S63 AMG 4MATIC is limited to 186 and 0-60 mph can be achieved in just 3.6 seconds. Those figures are truly remarkable; especially when you consider its price of close to $200,000 once destination tax has been added.
We know there are faster cars for less money out there, but they are not going to be in the same league as the new S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe. However, we do hope that Mercedes were able to resolve the issue with brake fade. In a number of tests various Mercedes vehicles were put through their paces and over time braking distance grew each time. One would assume that with AMG taking control of things they would be able to fix this issue, especially when you consider the power of this Coupe.
Upon further inspection we can see that the 2015 Mercedes S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe makes use of ceramic high-performance composite brakes, although this in an optional extra, one we assume will not be cheap.
The exterior of this latest vehicle from Mercedes and AMG has a sporty, yet aggressive vibe, all of which has a purpose to allow it to slip through the air with ease. As for the interior, this also offers a sporty feel, but with an air of luxury has well. We cannot wait to see this car at the New York Auto Show in April.
