IF YOU ARE A FAN OF THE pin­na­cle of lux­ury, you’d know by now that the S-Class has re­ceived a facelift. New bumpers, grille, big­ger wheels, re­designed head and tail­lamp clus­ters, a new three spoke steer­ing wheel, more in­te­rior colour op­tions, it gets them all. What you need to know how­ever is that this ocean liner has warped into a power­boat too. The S 63 AMG has given its 5.5-litre V8 the boot for the 4-litre biturbo V8 and this en­gine makes more power and torque than the AMG GT R. It makes a lu­di­crously high 603bhp of power and 900Nm of torque, and since AWD is es­sen­tial to keep the big sedan glued to the road, it also goes to 100kmph from nought in 3.5 sec­onds. Op­tion in the AMG driver’s pack­age and the su­per sedan will sprint to 300kmph. If you are a fan of burn­ing rub­ber and op­po­site lock, jump in joy. Right-hand drive S 63s will only be avail­able as rear­wheel drives.
