2013 CLS 63 AMG and AMG S-Model also revealed today

Besides the E-Class, Mercedes today also unveiled photos and details of the new CLS AMG, which now also has a special version called the S-Model. Mechanically it is almost equal to the E-Class, and so are the values ​​for acceleration, top speed, fuel consumption and emissions.

The engine is the same 5.5liter bi-turbo V8 unit from the E-Class with 410kW (557hp) and 720Nm for the normal AMG version, while in the S-Model it has 430kW (585hp) and 800Nm. The RWD Coupe version will accelerate from standstill to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.2 seconds, while the AMG 4MATIC and the AMG 4MATIC S-Model take 3.7 and 3.6 seconds, respectively. The Shooting Brake needs 0.1 seconds more.

Top speed is limited on all versions to 250km/h (156mph). The combined fuel consumption varies between 9.9 to 10.4l/100km for the Coupe and 10.1 to 10.6l/100km for the Shooting Brake, while CO2 emissions will vary between 231 to 248g/km.

Directly driving the wheels is the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission with four modes, "C" (Controlled Efficiency), "S" (Sport), "S+" (Sport plus) and "M" (Manual). The 4MATIC AWD system distributes the engine torque in a ratio of 33 to 67 percent (front/rear axle) allowing a more sporty and entertaining drive.
