US customers of the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe can choose from three variants of the luxury coupe and won’t be disapointed to find out that it’s one of the most costly car on the market, with prices starting well over 100.000 USD.
The new S-Class is offered in US in three variants: the S550 4MATIC Coupe (starting from $119.000), the S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe (with a base price of $160.900) and the S65 AMG Coupe (from $230.900). To these prices you must add another $925 destination and delivery fee, and then you can spend another tens of thousands dollars on the optional equipments.
To clearify, the S550 4MATIC Coupe has the same engine as the european version S500 4MATIC Coupe: a twin-turbo 4.7 liter V8 engine developing 449 bhp (455 HP) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm). Which is enough for the 5-meters coupe to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. This level of performance should be enough for most of the clients, but, if you’re willing to pay a couple of hundreds of thousands USD, why not take a look at what have to offer the two AMG versions?
The first one, S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe, has also a twin-turbo V8 engine, but it’s capacity is increased to 5.5 liter and the values are much better than the normal S-Class Coupe: 577 bhp (585 HP) and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm), while the sprint from 0 tp 60 mph is just 3.9 seconds. Not bad at all for the 4.500 pounds luxury car, is it?
But it gets better with the top-of-the-line S65 AMG Coupe (please notice that “4MATIC” is missing, which means that we are talking about a hardcore car now), which has a twin-turbo V12 6.0 liter engine, that develops 621 bhp (630 HP) and a Goliath torque of 738 lb-ft (1.000 Nm), that can propel the car in style to an electronically limited 186 mph (300 km/h).
