Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG: Supercar performance from a luxury limousine

Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG

Nice review here of the Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. Enjoy!

On the Fujita Scale, which measures the force of Tornadoes, an F5 means ‘total destruction’ with wind speeds up to 400 km/h; beyond that, is an F6, which is dubbed ‘The Finger of God’ where cars become missiles. That’s what happens when you open up the Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG on a clean stretch of open road; the car is blisteringly quick and the full roar of the 5.5-litre V8 biturbo at 5500 rpm is channeled directly into the cabin for your aural pleasure.

As a bonafide luxury car, its performance criteria is astounding. It weighs 2120 kilograms, yet will accelerate from 0-100km/h in a blistering 4.5 seconds; and yes, it feels every bit that quick when you dial up all 400 kW and 800 Nm of torque. The S 63 AMG is one seriously fast limo.
