2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe spy shots
This particular prototype is believed to be for the V-8-powered S63 AMG Coupe, though a V-12-powered S65 AMG Coupe is also in the works and will share a 621-horsepower twin-turbocharged V-12 with the recently revealed S65 AMG sedan and the SL65 AMG convertible.
We can tell it’s an AMG variant due to its enlarged air intakes, front splitter, uprated brakes, quad-exhaust tips, and AMG-style alloy wheels. According to our photographer, the prototype also sounded very similar to the recently launched 2014 S63 AMG sedan.

The key to the car’s performance will be standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive, at least here in the U.S. market. AMG’s version of 4MATIC features a 33-67 front-rear torque split, offering the rear-biased feel we all love but with the added traction of all-wheel-drive when roads get slippery.

Stay tuned for updates as development of the S63 AMG Coupe progresses. A reveal should take place at a major international auto show in the first half of next year.
