2012 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Interior and Exterior. The 2012 S-Class sedans are available with an innovative SPLITVIEW dual-content viewscreen, which allows the driver and front passenger to view two different programs on the same screen at the same time. For example, the driver can be viewing the navigation system, while on the very same display screen, the passenger (looking from a different angle) is watching a movie.
2012 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Engines and transmissions. The 2012 Mercedes-Benz S-Class line-up again includes the high-performance V8-powered S63 AMG with 536 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque.
Powered by a new 5.5-liter biturbo V8 that features twin turbo-chargers, direct fuel injection, multi-spark ignition and an ECO Stop/Start function. Compared to the new 4.6-liter biturbo, the S63 AMG powerplant makes use of more displacement (a larger cylinder bore and longer crankshaft stroke), higher turbocharger boost (14.2 lbs. boost vs. 12.9 lbs. boost), and slightly lower compression (10.0:1 vs. 10.5:1).
The new AMG twin-turbo V8 produces 536 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque and can accelerate from 0-60 in just 4.4 seconds. With the optional AMG Performance Package, these figures increase to 563 hp and 664 lb-ft, and the 0-60 time drops to 4.3 seconds. With a start-up clutch that replaces the torque converter, the new seven-speed MCT sports transmission provides the direct feedback of a manual transmission with the total convenience of an automatic.
