As the second Official Car alongside the GT S, the Mercedes-AMG C 63 S succeeds the C 63 AMG Estate in this role. The 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine of the C 63 S Estate makes a maximum output of 510 hp and peak torque of 700 Nm, enough to go from zero to 100 km/h takes 4.1 seconds.

Bernd Mayländer (GER, age 43), driver of the Official Safety Car of the FIA Formula One World Championship since 2000, notes "The gull-wing SLS AMG was my official car in Formula 1 for five years. Now I'm looking forward to the new Mercedes-AMG GT S, which I have been fortunate enough to get to know during its development phase. The new AMG sports car won me over immediately with its high-calibre race track performance."
