We had a taste last week when a series of leaked images showed up online, but now we can bring you the official pics and details of the Mercedes Benz S63 and S65 AMG saloons.
Unveiled at the Shanghai Auto Show this week, the luxury limos have received a number of mechanical and aesthetic revisions, but retain the existing engine line-up, albeit with a few tweaks.
The S63 features a 6.3 litre V8, producing over 390kW (525hp) and 630Nm (465 lb-ft) of torque. The dash from 0-100km/h is dispatched in 4.6 seconds.
The range topping S65 is packing even more punch with its 6.0 litre twin-turbo V12 engine, cranking out over 455kW (612hp) and 1000Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. A further o.2 seconds is shaved off the 0-100km/h time, stopping the clock at 4.4 seconds.
Mercedes has also cut C0?? emissions and improved fuel economy by around three percent in the S65, thanks to engine management revisions.
For the first time, AMGsports suspension has been added as a standard feature and Torque Vectoring Braking (TVB) is now available.
TVB works by momentarily applying braking force to the inner rear wheel during cornering. Mercedes explains that this improves responsiveness and safety.
Inside the cabin, changes are limited to a new COMAND system, which now features SPLITVIEW, allowing the driver and front passenger to see different images on screen at the same time. Otherwise, it's everything you'd expect from an S-Class Mercedes.
The S63 will be available as a long or short wheelbase model, while the S65 will be available in long wheelbase guise only.
Expect pricing closer to the official launch of each vehicle in June of this year. Until then, enjoy the official hi-res photos in the galleries below.
