Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe Wrapped in Matte Gray by Re-Styling

As far as fresh Mercedes cars are concerned, the S63 AMG 4Matic is like a meringue kiss, fresh from the oven and not even hard yet. This is a machine only a lucky few will ever drive, since its price pushes it close to supercar territory.

Today we turn our attention to the rich people of Russia, one of whom already has taken delivery of the new S63 AMG Coupe with a 4Matic all-wheel drive option pack. However, when Mercedes delivered it to him it was a very understated shade of dark blue. And since somehow understated just doesn't work in Russia, he sent it to be customized.

We've been following the work of Re-Styling for a good couple of years now and apparently they are celebrating their first decade of customization next year. Their clean work was needed to take the S63 AMG Coupe from boring blue to gracious gray. The shade of vinyl chosen is matte, almost like Mercedes' own frozen paint finish. However, while designo paint can be tricky to wash and requires constant attention you can just rip off the vinyl when it goes bad.

This is the first car of its breed to be delivered in the Russian capital of Moscow and we expect more to come soon. With a twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine at its disposal, the S63 AMG coupe makes short work of the competition. Thanks to 585 PS and 900 Nm of torque (663.8 lb-ft), it can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in under 4 seconds and only stops once the electronic nannies kick in at 250 km/h (155 mph). So what if it weighs over 2 tons? When you travel in this much opulence, fuel consumption and weight mean absolutely nothing.

If excess is a measure of wealth, than this overpowered and frankly quite pointless AMG model is among the best cars in the world.
