“…the most powerful S-class convertible with all-weather capability.”–Alexander Stoklosa, Car and Driver, 12/27/16
Mercedes Benz cognoscenti would argue that every automobile the company produces is special. While that may be true, it's fair to say that some are more special than others. And in the most elite group, the vehicles wearing the AMG emblem are unquestionably the most special of all. The official Mercedes site explains it this way: “AMG® is short for Aufecht, Melcher, and Großaspach, the division of Mercedes-Benz that produces performance vehicles. Named after some of the most important engineers in the company's history, this division creates vehicles with advanced engines, aerodynamic bodies, and high-speed capabilities. Most of the vehicles it produces are similar to standard Mercedes-Benz models, but have higher capabilities.”
The 2017 S63 Mercedes Benz S63 Cabriolet offered here is a perfect example of the AMG touch liberally applied. On virtually every possible measure, this is the highest expression of a luxury cabriolet, an automobile only a very fortunate few will ever possess. Listing every one of the car's distinctions and special touches would take pages, so we'll highlight just a few.
Exceptional performance: The twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine (in this car, personally signed by Mercedes engine builder Marc Dietz) produces 577 horsepower and a dramatic 664 pound-feet of torque delivered to all four wheels through the 4-Matic system. This propels the all-wheel drive 4-seater from a standing start to 60 miles per hour in 3.7 seconds. Zero-to-100mph takes 8.7 seconds; zero-to 130mph comes in 15.1 seconds. Top speed is governed at 186 mph.
Brilliant style: from its AMG sport wheels, projected gauges; to an array of switchgear arranged with jewelry-like presentation; to the multiple round heating and air conditioning dash vents which, with the bespoke steering wheel, recall the looks of classic Mercedes automobiles from the thirties; to a color combination bringing together the Diamond-White metallic exterior with Bengal red Nappa leather seating, dash, and interior door treatments accented in black poplar wood, this S63 is a pure visual delight. The interior door panels alone are pure automotive art.
Luxury at the highest level: How many cabriolets come equipped with heating vents at the top of the front bucket seats to blow warm air on the occupants' neck and shoulders? The same number that have the AMG “Affalterbach” crest embossed in their console leather as seen here. All four occupants sit in sculpted, heated bucket seats clad in diamond-stitched Exclusive Nappa leather. The center armrest, front –door armrest, and steering wheel are likewise heated. In the event of sudden inclement weather, the fully insulated top can be raised while the car is traveling up to 31 mph. The entire process (raising or lowering) takes a mere 20 seconds. The comprehensive optional driver-assistance package adds an elevated level of safety and driver awareness.
This S63 sale includes the full complement of factory literature including the original window sticker showing its long list of standard and optional equipment, as well as the $187,000 original list price. It needs to be noted that the car does NOT come with the aftermarket wheels. It does come with brand new tires and a fresh brake job. With a mere 20,000 miles on the odometer, the car's condition is every bit as flawless as depicted in the more than 200 photographs and the walk-around video available on the GarageKeptMotors site. This S63's striking appearance will certainly keep admirers gazing at their computer screens for hours. But don't stare too long lest this magnificent Mercedes AMG ends up in someone else's driveway.
