Do you want supercar performance with none of the usual supercar drawbacks?

Do you like the idea of being massaged in a plush interior while your driver blows away sportscars at the lights?

Then the new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG is the uber-limousine for you.

Revealed overnight, think of the S63 as the most luxurious Mercedes money can buy, with a nuclear bomb under the bonnet.

Equipped with all of the normal S-Class’s luxuries (like a ‘chauffuer pack’ and a ‘first-class’ rear suite) under the bonnet the S63 gets AMG’s twin-turbo 5.5-litre V8 which churns out 430kW/900Nm.

That’s enough grunt to rocket the 1995kg super-limo from 0-100km/h in 4.4 seconds, with all that power sent through the rear wheels. Australian buyers will again be denied the four-wheel-drive version.

Other AMG touches include new bodywork, AMG seats, a rear diffuser and a pair of twin exhaust pipes.

It isn’t cheap, though, with the S63 to retail for around $390,000 when it arrives in December.
