Mercedes-Benz says that the S63 AMG is capable of going 0 to 60 in approximately 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 186 mph.

The engine is attached to a seven-speed sports transmission with three different transmission modes. The "C" option is for controlled efficiency, the "S" option for sport, and "M" for manual according to Mercedes-Benz.

The Eco Start/Stop function is only available in the "C" mode after shutting off the eight-cylinder engine.

A brand-new feature in the 2014 model is the AMG all-wheel-drive 4Matic system.

The vehicle is 220 pounds lighter than its predecessor thanks to its light-alloy wheels, and lithium-ion battery.

The EPA said that the 2013 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG returns 15 mpg in city driving and 23 mpg on the highway.

The new S63 goes on sale in the U.S. this November according to a Mercedes-Benz press release. Pricing will be released closer to the launch date.
