IMSA offers 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 720PS to play with

Posted on

Looking for a discreet makeup and more power coming from a powerful 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine that is already strong? Just take the Mercedes-AMG S63 at IMSA

What happens next is that the tuner will install custom turbochargers, catalytic converters and stainless steel pipes, boosting the power from 612PS (603hp) to 900Nm (664lb-ft) at 720 hp (710 hp) and 990 Nm (730 lb-ft).

The 2018 stock of the Mercedes-AMG S63 takes only 3.5 seconds to complete the sprint of 0-100 km / h or 0.2 seconds less than the BMW M760Li xDrive, but unfortunately IMSA has not said how much their car is quickly changed.

Look a little closer to the German pilot saloon and you will see some carbon fiber inserts at both ends, following the car outlines, and it is said to improve aerodynamics. It also has a discreet lip for the luggage compartment cover and a slightly modified grid that lowers the three-pointed symbol emblem.

New wheels, 9×21 inches in front and 10.5 x 21 inches in rear for 255/35 and 295/30 tires, along with what the tuner calls "perfectly tuned drain pipes," complement the exterior work.

While the changes may not be as dramatic as compared to, for example, Brabus, IMSA has still felt the need to give this Mercedes-AMG S63 a new name, so they called it " S720 "
