2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG COLORS, Options + Leathers Guide

2014 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG COLORS

So, which 2014 S-Class is for you?

The S550 starts things off with a 4.8s sprint to 60-mph for just $90,000, while the S63 AMG lops that time down to just 3.9s for an extra $50 Large.

For real-life Kings and Queens? Still the rear-drive S65 AMG for now — but stay tuned for the extra-long-doors version and perhaps even a six-door Pullman S700 (?) in the next few years.

The all-new AMG 4Matic is heavily rear-biased, with last fall’s E63 4Matic drive proving these are still exceptionally-balanced and great-steering vehicles.









The standard AWD makes it a foolproof way to put this huge power down cleanly in rain, sleet or snow.

Another huge 4MATIC achievement on the newest Mercedes models? There is no passenger-seat floor hump, which will be very, very welcome news to any older 4Matic owners.

Fuel economy is barely dented by 4Matic in this generation as well. All good news.

The relatively humble S550 (by comparison with the AMG cars only) hits 60-mph in just 4.8 seconds with a base price in the $90,000 ballpark. Very good stuff there.

The S63 AMG starts from $140,000, while the forthcoming S65 AMG is expected to match the previous model’s $199,000 pricing with virtually everything included as standard.

Key options in my S63 AMG build-out?

— Performance steering wheel

These MBrace packages actually seem pretty affordable (one costs $14, for example) versus BMW’s mooted plan to charge ConnectedDrive customers up to $600 annually to enjoy real-time traffic and mapping functions.

Subscription rates for MBrace are quoted at $280 annually, which is actually pretty good value. Hopefully no data limits, etc.

Making any of these features like paint and web access optional is bit stingy in my opinion, but who am I to judge these C-suite residents’ spending habits?

$14 for a Mercedes-Benz feature! Um, yes please. That is only 2/3 the cost of a Manhattan movie theater ticket in 2014, and the same price as a Manhattan pack of cigarettes as well.

Heck, $14 is the price of a Manhattan imported beer.

What is next? Oh, you want tire stem caps? That will be a factory-installed, $1.97 option, Sir, than cannot be retrofitted.

We’re just kidding, mostly. US dealers only order super-loaded cars, so these are only features to be aware of if you prepare the build sheet yourself versus buying off a dealer lot.
