The Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe was revealed online ahead of its world premiere at the 2014 New York International Auto Show next month. Mercedes-Benz says the new S 63 AMG Coupe combines 'outstanding driving dynamics, advanced lightweight construction, and groundbreaking efficiency'.

The front end of the S 63 is designed with a three-dimensional AMG twin-blade silver colored radiator grill. The air-ducting element is situated below the radiator grill that spans the entire width of the front apron. Moreover, the cooling air grills have a high gloss black paint finish.

The rear of the vehicle has a black diffuser insert which houses the two chromed twin tailpipes. It also has vertical air outlets in the rear apron to optimize aerodynamics. Below the tail lamps, the “S 63 AMG” emblem adds the finishing touch to the vehicle’s rear-end design.

Inside, Mercedes-Benz says high-quality materials and fine workmanship are combined with a sporty and exclusive design concept. The S 63 Coupe is equipped with AMG sports seats with power adjustment, memory function, and seat heating/ventilation that offers the driver and front passenger optimum lateral support. It has Nappa leather together with AMG badges on all four seat backrests and an embossed AMG emblem on the armrest of the front center console.

It also features a new three-spoke leather sport steering wheel with an AMG logo in the lower metal insert and aluminum shift paddles. The S 63 Coupe also has a high-resolution TFT color AMG instrument cluster with two animated round dials. Adding the icing on the cake is the innovative touchpad that makes it easier to operate the radio, telephone and navigation system.
