S 500 Coupe
The S 500 coupe is a two-door version of the S500 four-door sedan. The car has a 4.7-liter V8 twin-turbo engine that produces 453bhp and 700Nm of torque. The power-plant is same as that of the four-door version. S500 flaunts a rear-end with a more sloping profile that also features an exhaust system, with built-in flaps. These flaps help provide a distinct exhaust note, thanks to the rumbling V8. The exhaust note can be controlled by regulating the engine speed. S500 Coupe is available with red brake calipers. The car features generous carbon fiber usage and carved exterior design.
The S63 incorporates similar styling cues as the S500, with additions of aggressive body kits, a bulging bonnet and carbon-fiber trims on the interiors. The S63 AMG has a quad-exhaust unit and incorporates extensive AMG branding.The car has managed to achieve a more athletic look with the help of its wide squat stance and bulging wheel arches. S63 AMG features a wheelbase of 2945mm, length of 5027mm, a width of 1899mm and a height of 1411mm. The car uses its 5.5-liter V8 Bi-Turbo engine, which is paired to a 7-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT transmission to achieve an acceleration of 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. This time is achieved by the S63 AMG in rear-wheel drive configuration. The car can also achieve the same acceleration in 3.9 seconds in its 4MATIC all-wheel drive configuration.
