With the new generation of the Mercedes S-Class already presented, now the wait is focused on one of the sportier versions, the AMG S63 4MATIC. Mercedes-AMG specialists are working on a powerful electrified V8 engine with EQ Power technology, which will put the saloon at a level difficult to beat.
In just over a year, Mercedes will present the new generation of the sports version, the ” AMG S63 4MATIC “, also becoming the first manufacturer to have a high-performance luxury sedan plug-in hybrid.
The flagship will also receive a special aesthetic tune-up, mounting the Pan-American grille on the front, an element that will give the S-Class a much more special image. A more generously sized front apron design of the air intakes are also reflected in this recreation, as well as the typical AMG large black painted multi-spoke alloy wheels. At the back, it will have the characteristic four round exhausts.
As you can see, the commercial name of the model changes, giving a twist to electrification with “EQ Power +” technology. To the brand of the star, the terms are shortened. In two and a half years of development of the base model, we have not come across any prototypes of this version, so we hope to see them shortly, considering that we expect their debut in late 2021.
