SPY: The 2013 Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG (W 222) strengthens its giant muscles

The new S-Class has been undergoing numerous rigorous tests since 2010, when the development programme kicked off. While the standard version is nearing the completion of this phase, the forthcoming S 63 AMG performance limousine has just began the first outdoor raids under heavy black cladding. We have previously showed you a test prototype which we presumed it is the an early mule for the future S 63 AMG in fact and so it was (read more HERE). Now, there are enough, clear clues to know what car are we talking about: see the larger, more pronounced front and rear aprons, the twin-spoke AMG design sports wheels and the quad exhausts at the back of the model. This sporty variant of the W 222 S-Class will become reality beginning with summer 2013 and will be equipped with an upgraded version of the current 5.5-litre V8 BITURBO powerplant, which should be capable of delivering around 560 hp of peak output and 800 Nm maximum torque. We invite to take a look through the newest scoops with the 2013 S 63 AMG! Enjoy!
