The AMG® S-Models are Beginning to Arrive

New for Model Year 2014 is the addition of S-Models to the AMG® lineup. The new S-Model is the replacement for the P30 Performance Package. As of this moment the S-Model is available for the CLS63 AMG® and the E63 AMG®. There is a difference of 27hp (550hp vs. 577) and 59 lb-ft of torque (590 lb-ft vs 531 lb-ft). Both the regular and S-Model AMG® vehicles are equipped with AMG® 4MATIC® Performance All Wheel Drive. The torque split is 33% front and 67% rear. The 4MATIC® is critically important in getting the massive 577hp to the road, for an impressive 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds.  All in all the S-Model CLS-Class and E-Class are quicker than a 2013 Lamborghini GALLARDO LP 560-4, 2013 Audi R8, 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S and the 2013 Ferrari California. The visual differentiation between the Normal and S-Models are as follows: 19’’ 10 Spoke Titanium Wheels, Red Brake Calipers, Chrome Rocker Panel Insert, “S” AMG® Badge, Conjoined Quad Exhaust Pipes, Spoiler, Silver Contrast Stitching and Silver Seat Belts, Affalterbach Crest Pressed into headrests, to name a few.
