    S 500 Coupe AMG

    HI All,

    Anyone here have one of these or the 63 AMG version? I'm interested in getting some feedback, as I am thinking of potentially getting one a preowned one.  Ideally it would be the convertible, but that's not depreciated enough as it just came out.  I think it's the most luxurious and elegant coupe out there.

    Re: S 500 Coupe AMG

    My neighbor has an S63. I agree - a very elegant, classy car. Not sure if it is the new  list price, but used it might be a deal. I was driving couple of times with him. There is nothing to complain about. The car is able to do everything. Performance, comfort, elegance - whatever you ask for! But - I think that the AMG versions are looking a million times better than the 500. So I would clearly go for the bigger one!

     


    Re: S 500 Coupe AMG

    Thanks for the info Lars, the S63 might be a little too over the top for me.  Also I read the 7 speed isn't a good as the 9 speed in the 500.

    I think if you have a car that strong, you don't want to have 9 gears. This box is permanently shifting. And if you want to shift manually (to hear the sounds and barks) - 7 is more than enough.

    Regarding AMG - they have the AMG pack also for the 500, gives a bit wider bumpers, etc. Good luck finding a car. If you need support in Germany just drop a PM!


    Re: S 500 Coupe AMG

    agree, the 7 speed that comes in the AMG's matches well to the engines.the MCT-7 shifts quite fast and has a lovely rev matching when downshifting.

    Let me put it this way: If I were in the market for a luxurious and super fast Coupe with four seats and a decently sized trunk, I would definitely go for the S63 AMG Coupe. My son loves this car and he usually is more into super sports cars.

    Re: S 500 Coupe AMG

    I've never lived with one but I've driven the S63 and it was phenomenal. If you're not looking for a canyone carver or track car it's hard to look past it. Enough room for four, great sounds, one of the best interiors in the world and more than fast enough for almost anything. Very handsome car too but doesn't attract any undue attention.

    Re: S 500 Coupe AMG

    Thanks for the feedback guys.  Lars, I need a RHD model as I'm living in Cyprus, so I've been looking at the UK.  The GBP/EUR rate is also making things look more attractive. The reason for the 500 is that excise tax on the 63 is on another level, because of the  co2 emissions, and then you have road tax and add to that the least expensisve 63 is already 20,000 GBP more expensive than the 500 AMG coupe I've located, and it all points to the 500 being the better choice for my use. 

    But I agree with the rest of you, the 63 is a beauty!

    You reasonings are very valid! 

    Good luck in finding your S500. It is a for sure a beauty! Smiley


    Re: S 500 Coupe AMG

    I was stuck in traffic a few days ago right next to one of these and man it looks good. MB is doing a great job recently and this car has fantastic road presence . 


    Re: S 500 Coupe AMG

    ya. its really something else.  Even the new C63 is a beaut!  Good job over there are MB.

    The new C is indeed a beautiful car. I'm actually rather appreciative of the C lately as I've been driving one for the last few weeks. After I moved back to DR I was thinking what car to buy, for my surprise a friend of my parents was moving to the US and told me I could keep her old (2006 W203) C200 Kompressor. She basically gave it to me for free as I I lo paid some taxes for transferring it to my name and changer the battery for a new one. I took it in for a checkup and it's in incredible condition for its age.  So I decided to keep it for a year to a year and a half since it's pretty much a free car that I can use while I get settled in here and then sell and buy something I really like. 

    Interesting i never thought my first European car ownership experience would go down this way. And so, now I'm a Mercedes driver Smiley

    Today I saw a white Huracan Spyder driving down the street, so Bentley not that far off, but not for me that's for sure....


    Re: S 500 Coupe AMG

    No way, this new S coupe is an amazing machine! No competition!
