The S63 AMG, CL63 AMG and Maybach 62 S will debut in North America at the Los Angeles Auto Show (Dec. 1 – 10, 2006). The S63 AMG sedan and the CL63 AMG coupe are both powered by the 6.3-liter normally aspirated V8 that produces 518 HP and 465 lb.-ft. of torque. Infused with even greater power and enhanced agility, the Maybach 62 S delivers a level of performance expected in an exotic sports car while maintaining the extraordinary luxury and comfort of the world’s finest super-luxury sedan.

AMG Racing Success Spawns High-Power Production Engine
One of the most powerful naturally aspirated production V8s ever, the new 6.3-liter engine boasts a wealth of features derived from AMG’s racing efforts. Built almost completely from a high-strength silicon-aluminum alloy, this engine features four valves per cylinder, variable valve timing, bucket followers (rather than rocker arms) and a variable intake manifold. Designed entirely by AMG, the engine shares no parts with Mercedes-Benz other V8 engines. A first for a production engine, the cylinder bores feature a twin-wire-arc-sprayed (TWAS) coating; the process results in low friction and running surfaces that are twice as hard as conventional cast-iron cylinders.

Maybach 62 S: 604-Horsepower Twin-Turbo V12
The Maybach 62 S is powered by a higher-performance version of the Maybach twin-turbo, intercooled V12 engine. Designed and hand-built by Mercedes-AMG, the 62 S displaces six liters, a half-liter more than the standard engine. With higher turbo boost pressure and other modifications, the 62 S engine produces 604 HP and 738 pound-feet of torque from as low as 2,000 rpm. To balance its increased acceleration, the Maybach 62 S chassis has been modified to provide sharper handling response, with firmer air suspension and shock absorbers as well as thicker stabilizer bars. The suspension has been specially tuned to work with new 11-spoke, 20-inch alloy wheels fitted with 275/45 R 20 Michelin Pilot Sport tires (versus 19-inch wheels on the standard 57 model).
