What if we told you there was a car that combines the torque of a NASCAR racer with the luxury of a private yacht? Well It doesn’t exist. That’s because this car, the Mercedes S63 AMG coupe actually makes more twist than an oval track racer.

And it can also turn right.

It’s also really good at going straight, with its twin turbo 5.5L V8 making a crazy 577 hp and a life changing 644 lb-ft of torque enabling a 0-60 time of 3.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 186 MPH.

Now all that power might normally make a car undrivable, even with the latest in traction and stability control, but this Benz is part of a new era of high powered AMGs that have AWD.

This particular system delivers 33 percent of its power to the front wheels and 67 to the rear. It also features the Benz’ magic body control air suspension that leans the car into a corner.

Further improving performance it is 140 lbs lighter than the CL Class model it replaces. Plus, you can also opt for carbon ceramic brakes.

Based off the new S-class nowhere is that more obvious than inside with unique switchgear, seats look like like they were lifted from a private jet and the use of carbon fiber that might border on excessive if such a thing were possible.

Outside you get all the AMG kit you’d expect with big lightweight wheels and more aggressive bodywork.

No pricing has been released but look to spend a solid 150k or more to show off your membership to the 1 percent club.

    YESS ! Wonder how they’re going to do the 65AMG?
    The best or nothing.

    This might be some of the worst photography I’ve ever seen. Could the photog simply stand back and give us some straight-on shots of the car, instead of trying to be artsy. What a waste of video.

    That car is screaming to be a convertible.
    Make one Mercedes, and I’ll buy it!
