Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ becomes stronger and nicer-looking than ever
On to other Geneva show news! Mansory, German elite tuner and our constant source of impressive new builds to look upon, has unveiled another one of its creations. The convertible goes by the name “Apertus Edition” and represents an individualized take on the Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+.
The sports car, which looks strikingly stylish in its factory state, has gained a surprisingly elegant body kit consisting of a new hood with a NACA Duct add-on, fender flares, restyled front apron complete with new air intakes and side canards, a rear spoiler, and a diffusor. All parts have been machined to fit the body perfectly and colored to match.
In turn, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 mill of the S 63 received a substantial boost from its manufacturer-guaranteed 612 hp (456 kW) to 800 hp (596 kW). The tuner had to clamp the torque at 1,000 Newton-meters (738 pound-feet) to prevent the drivetrain from eventual destruction. The convertible sports car now has no trouble making 100 km/h (62 mph) in three and a half seconds and ultimately climbing as high as 300 km/h (186 mph). Of course, you will need to install a set of custom 22-inch alloys wrapped in racing-grade tires to deliver all that power to the ground.
The interior of the Mercedes-AMG S 63 4MATIC+ Apertus Edition sports an expensive hand-stitched leather trim alongside a new steering wheel, aluminum pedal pads, Mansory-branded floor mats and door sill lighting.
