This is the latest model to benefit from the systematic implementation of the AMG lightweight performance strategy. Lightweight has reduced the vehicle weight by 65kg, even though the has a higher output and more extensive standard equipment than the predecessor model.

This weight saving was achieved largely thanks to the use of lightweight lithium-ion battery. AMG forged light-alloy wheels and weight-optimised high performance composite braking system. Furthermore the entire outer skin and the front end of the body are made of aluminium. The reduced weight improves driving dynamics and cuts fuel consumption, while the low power-to-weight ratio of 3.41kg results in effortlessly superior performance; the S 63 AMG Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds, and goes on to reach a top speed of 250km/h.

Compared to the previous CL 63 AMG model, engine output has been increased by 30Kw and torque by 100Nm. Yet the S 63 AMG Coupe still consumes less fuel. According to New Age, the combined figure of 10.1-liters per 100km makes the two-door model the most fuel-efficient model in its segment.
