Design and equipment: Exclusive effortless superiority with style

Jun 22, 2009
Dynamic, exclusive, self-confident and effortlessly superior – the new
S-Class
AMG models embody these attributes even more after the precise fine-tuning. Exterior and interior styling as well as the extensive standard-equipment package meet even the most discerning requirements. The first-class workmanship makes for a consummate feel-good atmosphere, while ensuring outstanding comfort on long journeys.
On the outside, the S 63 AMGinstantly makes a statement with its discreet yet consciously more distinctive styling. New-look headlamps with standard-fit
bi-xenon technology fit in perfectly with the striking, AMG-specific LED daytime driving lights. The LEDs are housed in the large new-look AMG front apron with its large cooling air intakes; the front apron also provides an extra sporty touch with its transverse air intakes.
The AMG bodystyling also includes the decidedly sportily shaped side sill panels which continue the line of the front apron through to the rear apron. At the rear, the eye is drawn to the AMGsports exhaust system with its two sets of chromed twin tailpipes, as well as to the diffuser-look rear apron painted in the vehicle colour. New tail lights with 52 LEDs in the form of a double "C" also form an unmistakable light signature. From the side, the high-sheen 19-inch AMGfour-spoke light-alloy wheels painted in titanium grey add another veritable highlight. They not only fit snugly inside the flared wings but also direct the eye to the large brake callipers of the AMG high-performance braking system. The "6.3 AMG" lettering on the front wing is unmistakable testimony to the dynamic character-istics of the performance saloon.
S 65 AMG with subtle yet effective distinguishing features
The S 65 AMGdiffers from the S 63 AMGwith its exclusive, more expressive radiator grille with three twin chromed louvres, the LED Light package including Intelligent Light System, the "V12 Biturbo" lettering on the front wings and with its 20-inch AMGtwin-spoke forged wheels painted titanium grey with a mirror finish. At the rear the connoisseur will recognise the S 65 AMGwith its two sets of chromed twin tailpipes featuring V12 styling of the AMGsports exhaust system and, of course, the model designation on the boot lid.
S 65 AMG impressively greets the driver
As soon as the driver's door is opened, the driver is welcomed with the "AMG V12 BITURBO" start screen in the AMGinstrument cluster – a clear invitation to start the 450-kW/612-hp twelve-cylinder engine straightaway. But first why not savour the luxurious interior of the high-performance saloon with its first-class workmanship. Exquisite leather and select fine wood combine to provide the perfect feel-good atmosphere to guarantee consummate passenger comfort on long journeys.
The S 65 AMG features exquisite Exclusive PASSION leather as standard: leather appointments cover not only the lower and upper sections of the dashboard, the entire door trim, the seat side and seatback coverings but also the ruffled pockets and the parcel shelf. In addition, Alcantara adorns the roof liner and the A, B and C-pillars. The 12-way electrically adjustable AMGsports seats come with the Memory package, distinctive seat fluting and leather upholstery in the AMG V12 diamond pattern design, which also extends over the rear seats and all four door centre panels. The S 65 AMG comes as standard with the Seat Comfort package, which includes front active multicontour seats with massage and dynamic handling function and NECK-PRO luxury head restraints and rear multicontour seats with massage function. All seats feature active ventilation and heating as well as the PRE-SAFE® positioning function.
Standard equipment on the S 63 AMG includes 12-way electrically adjustable AMG sports seats with Memory package, Seat Comfort package with front active multicontour seats including massage and dynamic handling function, with seatheating and ventilation, PRE-SAFE® positioning function and NECK-PRO luxury head restraints. The PASSION leather upholstery boasts sporty, AMG-specific seat fluting and natural leather in the seat side bolsters.
The exclusive interior appointments on the S 63 AMG and S 65 AMG are available in three colour combinations: black/black, alpaca grey/basalt grey and cashmere beige/savanna beige. A selection of four wood trim finishes: dark eucalyptus wood (only S 63 AMG), dark burr walnut with a high-sheen finish, pale burr walnut with a high-sheen finish, and brown poplar (only S 65 AMG) provides ample opportunities for tailoring the vehicle to your own personal tastes.
AMG sports steering wheel with silver-coloured aluminium shift paddles
Both AMG saloons come with an AMG sports steering wheel with silver-coloured aluminium shift paddles, specially shaped grip area and perforated nappa leather around the steering wheel spokes. The multifunction buttons on the left and right enable the driver to select numerous settings and call up information, say in the AMG main menu: the activated transmission mode is displayed in the middle of the instrument cluster – the currently engaged gear and recommended upshifts are also shown in "M" mode.
The AMG main menu also provides the driver with information about engine oil temperature or the battery voltage, and the RACETIMER, which enables the driver to calculate lap times – on a private racing circuit, for instance. The RACETIMER records the time for the fastest lap, the average and maximum speeds and the lap distance. The AMG instrument cluster on the S 63 AMG comes with a 320 km/h speedometer scale; on the S 65 AMG the speedometer goes up to 360 km/h. One of the most eye-catching features in the interior of the S 63 AMG and S 65 AMGis the exclusive analogue clock with its "IWC Ingenieur" design in the centre console.
