Even though the model should only reach dealerships in September, the recently-unveiled Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe (C217) has already being caught more than once on the streets of Germany and not only.
We already showed you a model torturing its tires on the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife, while another one was spotted casually driving through traffic and receiving all the attention that its deserves.

Both aforementioned examples were sporting a white body, but it's now time to check out a black S 63 AMG Coupe, especially since this is the first time that we see it in this color.

Caught by car-spotter and YouTube-user Walko Art somewhere in the Stuttgart region, it appears that the model is the rear-wheel drive variant, as the 4Matic badging is missing, which in essence would translate into the fact that it comes with the innovative active tilt function of the Magic Body Control system.

If you paid enough attention when the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe (C217) was launched, the active tilt function pretty much means that the car can literally lean into corners in order to put less lateral forces on the passengers during cornering.

Unfortunately, the function is integrated into the Magic Body Control system, which for weight and packaging reasons isn't available on 4Matic all-wheel drive models.

Powered by a 5.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 that outputs no less than 585 hp and 900 Nm (664 lb ft) of torque, the Mercedes-Benz S 63 AMG Coupe (C217) can reach 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.3 seconds – which makes it exactly 0.4-seconds slower than the 4Matic all-wheel drive variant. Either way, you wouldn't have thought that this sexy but huge brute of a car would be so fast from a standing start, would you?
