2014 Mercedes S 63 AMG - DRIVING
Systematic implementation of the AMG Lightweight Performance strategy
reduces the weight of the S 63 AMG by up to 100 kilograms compared to the
predecessor model. This weight saving was achieved largely thanks to the
use of AMG forged light-alloy wheels, a lightweight lithium-ion battery and
a weight-optimised AMG high-performance composite brake system.
Furthermore, the entire outer skin of the S-Class, including the roof and
the front end of the body, is made of aluminium. Installing a spare wheel
recess made of carbon fibre, a material used in Formula 1, reduces the
weight by a further four kilograms. The S 63 AMG also leads the way when it
comes to power-to-weight ratio, boasting a figure of 3.49 kg/hp, resulting
in effortlessly superior performance. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes
4.0 to 4.4 seconds, depending on model variant, and the top speed is 250
km/h (electronically limited).
S 63 AMG (short wheelbase) €149,880.50

Mercedes S 63 AMG: Und die technischen Daten sind beeindruckend - 5,5 Liter
V8 Biturbo, 585 PS, 900 Newtonmeter
Drehmoment. Wir fahren die Langversion mit 4 Matic, die schwäbische
Bezeichnung für Allrad. Außerdem hat Rennlegende Hans-Joachim Stuck alias
Strietzel Stuck einen Gastauftritt im Porsche 911 Carrera 4S Cabrio. Grund
genug einen kleinen Schowdown auf der Autobahn zu veranstalten und zu
schauen, ob der ehemalige Formel 1-Fahrer noch fit am Gas ist.
Ariel Atom V8 vs 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs BMW HP4 superbike drag race - autocar.co.uk
Which is faster? An Ariel Atom V8
track day toy, BMW HP4 superbike or a rallycross Citroen DS3 with 600bhp?
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar:
Here we have three completely different ways of going extremely quickly in
a straight line. Time for a drag race then. So what are the contenders?
There's the one-wheel drive BMW HP4 superbike, which arguably requires the
most skill to extract speed from but has a ludicrous 757bhp/tonne
power-to-weight ratio. Then there's the two-wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 with
748bhp/tonne and the Citroen DS3 Rallycross car with only 577bhp/tonne but
all-important four-wheel drive. Oh, and did we mention it's wet?

New Mercedes S-Class vs Audi A8 vs Range Rover - Auto Express

Ever since the first Mercedes S-Class arrived in 1972 it has dominated the
Luxury car sector -- until the excellent Range Rover came along recently.
So can this new one regain its crown?
The Range Rover sets the benchmark for the Mercedes to beat. And starting
at around £70,000, this TDV6 Vogue is our pick of the range. By comparison
the long wheelbase A8 3.0-litre TDI SE seems a bit of a bargain. At less
than £64,000 it's the least expensive car here.
The Mercedes S350 L SE costs two thousand pounds more than the Audi, but
the S-Class is undoubtedly the most luxurious. The Range Rover comes and
impressive second though, with the A8 third.
The S-Class is offered with range of seating options. This one has the
£4000 Executive Seat package but can pay even more to make them recline up
to 43.5 degrees -- that's more than in any other car.
The Audi doesn't have such versatile seats but in the back it's no less
spacious than the Mercedes. It may be big on the outside but the Range
Rover has 80mm less rear legroom than the two Germans.
Bearing in mind that these cars are comfy cruisers, the Mercedes is the
best to drive, followed by the Range Rover and finally the Audi -- on
account of its sporty edge.
Both the Audi A8 and the Range Rover are gadget-laden. You can get posh
stereos, high tech screens, surround cameras and huge sunroofs in those
cars, but being the newest the Mercedes has an advantage. It gets the
latest displays, most advanced nigh vision system and even hot stone
So the S-Class leads the field for technology as well as being the most
luxurious plus the best to drive and to be driven in. But there's just one
last thing we need to consider.
The S-Class's boot capacity is a respectable 510-litres, which is the same
as the Audi A8. However, the Range Rover has a 909-litre capacity and, with
the seats folded, can swallow 2,030 litres.
That means the Range Rover is the most practical and overall it's a better
luxury car than the Audi A8. The thing is though, the Mercedes S-Class is
