Mercedes-Benz developing 5.5 liter twin-turbo V8 powered 2013 S63 AMG

It was very recently that a heavily veiled version of the forthcoming 2013 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG based on the new W222 platform was seen while undergoing tests. The carmaker has been preparing a new S-Class for the global market and has been quite busy at the task. Now what will be the actual stuff that the carmaker will put on display at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show is highly anticipated. However it is expected that the AMG will be coming with all the latest technology available and that it will be a car of monster power and speed as well.

Even the spy photographs could not get a glimpse of what the AMG looks like. However it seems that the German car makers are just into testing if the chassis can stand up to the rigors of performance driving. The parts that will be found in this test beast will not be used in the production units.

As far as exhausts are concerned the work on the overall power train has not been finalized yet but what the photographs do indicate are the larger brake discs and air intakes that are more open. There’s quite a debate so as to the power department. In the current model we find the new 5.5-liter V8 with twin-turbos. We expect that the new car will come with a larger leg room and its drive programs will be tweaked and equipment levels are likely to change as well.
