New Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Sounds Angry Around the Nurburgring

The all-new 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is a lighter and more nimble replacement to the old model. This affects all variants in the range, but it should perhaps be most noticeable on the 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 AMG powered S63. It may be one of (if not) the last cars to use that engine, according to a report we did not long ago, so we might as well enjoy its sound while they last.

Below we posted a video of what is believed to be the S63 being driven around the often-painted the Nurburgring Nordschleife, courtesy of TouriClips, and I can say that it sounds just as good as I was expecting it to – no surprises here.

Moreover, it looks really composed and clean through the bends, though, that may also be a byproduct of it not being driven particularly fast around them – I can’t tell for sure, but it looks quite slow in and fast out, to me.

Regardless, it’s quite a sight on the track, and it can’t be any slower than its predecessor, since it carries around less weight, so it should be better at trying to be a sports car. It remains to be seen if it’s sharper than the Panamera Turbo, but then again, the Porsche isn’t as good as the S at being a plush limousine, nor does it look as classy and clean.
