The Mercedes-AMG S 63 E Performance 4.0-litre V8 engine is at the front and electric motor at the rear axle for 590 kW (802 hp) system output.
Active roll stabilisation and active rear-axle steering as standard.
Philipp Schiemer, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, said:
“The S-Class has always had a very special meaning for us. In 1971, it made the AMG brand famous overnight with its legendary appearance in the Spa 24-hour race.”
“This was undoubtedly an important foundation stone for our rise as a performance and sports car brand with global significance. With E PERFORMANCE, we are now opening a new chapter: Never before has a luxury saloon so perfectly combined best-in-class performance with superior comfort and virtually silent electric driving. In this way, we are also opening up to highly discerning target groups who see Mercedes-AMG as the performance luxury brand of the 21st century.”
“With the most powerful S-Class of all time, however, we are not only going our own technical way, as is characteristic of AMG, but also making a strong visual statement: For the first time, the S-Class Saloon also has our AMG-specific radiator grille, so the brand affiliation is closer than ever before.”
