New Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe: prices for DB11 rival confirmed
Both the coupé and convertible come in S560 AMG Line from the off. The entry-level (although still very highly specced) model replaces the outgoing S500 and gets Mercedes' twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine in 462bhp form and 516lb ft of torque. AMG's take on the model, the S63, uses a version of the same 4.0-litre V8 but with power raised to 603bhp and 663lb ft of torque. Prices for this model, which will rival the upcoming BMW M8, start at £127,515 for the coupé and £140,610 for the convertible.
The top model on sale is the AMG S65, which is powered by a 621bhp and 738lb ft twin-turbocharged 6.0-litre V12 engine and can hit 62mph in 4.1sec. It costs from £189,615 for the regular car, while those opting for the drop-top version will have to pay £197,510.
First deliveries for the cars will begin in early 2018. Read on for more details.
