Be Smart, Check in Advance. CARFAX — Your Vehicle History.
CARFAX — Your Vehicle History Expert
Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you, but that's not the case when buying a used car. As an independent vehicle history provider, at CARFAX we've made it our mission to tell you everything you need to know by uncovering as many events as possible from the previous life of a used car. Our primary goal is to help you get to know your next car from the inside out before deciding to make an investment that will be part of you and your family's everyday life. We believe your next car shouldn't be hiding anything from you.
CARFAX Vehicle History Reports contain over 28 billion historical records from 20 European countries, the US and Canada, which are updated daily with new information.
Even if you live in a country we don't collect vehicle data from, it's still always worth checking the Vehicle Identification Number without obligation. The used car import and export market is booming and many owners would be surprised to find out exactly what happened to their vehicle during its previous life abroad.
Privacy for Customers — Transparency over Vehicles
Let's be clear: Although we strive to find every detail of a vehicle's life so far, we are focused only on the vehicle's history, and do not collect any information on previous owners. The information we provide relates solely to the vehicle, its odometer reading, any accidents that have been covered up, where the vehicle comes from and much more — it never gets personal. We've uncovered irreparable damage several times in the past, but other times our vehicle history checks draw a blank — and sometimes that's actually a good thing.
Second Hand — Not Second Best
Did you know that considerably more used cars are sold than new cars? We think this second-hand system is nothing short of fantastic. However, it goes without saying that it gives rise to different methods and tactics: Some sellers will disguise a car that's been in an accident under a fresh coat of paint, tamper with the odometer or conceal theft. This is one of the less appealing aspects of buying second hand. Our goal is to establish trusting relationships between buyers and sellers, since this is the best way to help customers make the right decision. Your new car should be reliable and make you feel safe, as well as make you feel like you haven't paid too much.
But more than anything else, we don't want you or your family unknowingly sitting behind the wheel of a vehicle that isn't 100% safe. This is why we strive to take these vehicles off the road, which not only makes the used car market safer but our streets safer too.
CARFAX — 35+ Years of Experience in Vehicle Histories
CARFAX was founded in the US in 1984 and expanded into Europe in 2007. Around 100 team members spread across six European offices process vehicle information from 22 countries.
Fostering strategic partnerships with registration authorities, law enforcement agencies, government departments, insurance companies, inspection centers and numerous other leading companies around the world has enabled us to compile a unique international database for vehicle histories. We use this database to help make the used car market more transparent. We give everyone in the process of buying a used car access to what is currently the world's most comprehensive source for vehicle history reports, and is growing day by day.
We remain neutral and independent despite our partnerships — our sole purpose is help customers make an informed choice and ensure their safety and the safety of their family. This includes never collecting any personal details — we do not accept any PII from data sources amongst the information we provide about a vehicle. We ensure that data protection laws are observed at all times. Furthermore, we always collect our data in compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks — in all the countries in which we are active. We expressly distance ourselves from illegal activities such as data theft, scraping and hacking.
Mercedes-Benz has debuted the next-generation S-class sedan, but those seeking a souped-up AMG S-class will have to settle for a two-door 2021 S63—for now. Available as a coupe or cabriolet (read: convertible), the S63 still rides on the old S-class platform and features an interior with less technological wizardry. Not that we're complaining. They're currently the only way to get a 603-hp twin-turbo V-8 and sport-oriented chassis enhancements in a car wearing the S-class badge. This configuration provides swift acceleration and surprisingly agile handling but neither of those characteristics compromise the S63's smooth and refined driving manners. With impeccably crafted cabins and no shortage of upscale features and tech, the 2021 S63 coupe and cabriolet are too expensive for most everyone, but exciting and extravagant for the elite.
What's New for 2021?
For 2021, Mercedes drops the V-12-powered AMG S65 sedan. The four-door body style in AMG spec is currently on hiatus as the regular Mercedes-Benz S-class enters a new generation. The S63 coupe and cabriolet carry over largely unchanged, however. Both models are now available in Cirrus Silver and they feature newly standard massaging front seats with enhanced heating functions. A surround-view camera system is also now standard.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Between the hardtop and soft-top versions of the S63, we prefer the one that can go topless. Mercedes offers the retractable soft top in four different colors (black, blue, beige, and red) at no extra cost. There are also appearance packages to replace the standard exterior chrome trim with black or carbon-fiber accents. Inside, there's a selection of leather upholstery and trim options. For those who want an assortment of active safety features, the Driver Assistance package fills out the roster with equipment such as adaptive cruise control and other assists that make driving easier and safer.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
Peek under the hood of the S63 and you'll find a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine that provides 603 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. The engine pairs with an unobtrusive nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. This setup makes the S63 a very quick driving machine. In our tests, the coupe made the dash from zero to 60 mph in a scant 3.0 seconds. Both S63 body styles comport themselves with dignity and precision. They're also easygoing companions when the road gets rough, with suspension tuning that's designed to keep harshness out of the cabin.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The government estimates that the Mercedes-Benz S63 coupe will achieve fuel economy of 16 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The cabriolet version is less efficient, with ratings of 14 mpg city and 24 highway. We observed fuel economy of 18 mpg with an S63 coupe but really, does it matter? For more information about the S63's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Cabin design is a soaring high point with the S63. It boasts an interior that looks opulent from every angle, with tasteful styling and the finest materials. The front seats come with a massaging feature that delivers a spa experience. Effective insulation keeps things suitably muted within the cabin when the car is in motion. The S63 convertible and coupe variants provide seven cubic feet and 10 cubes of cargo room, respectively.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The S63's list of standard tech features is exhaustive. It includes a 13-speaker Burmester surround-sound steres, wireless-device charging, and navigation. All models come with a Wi-Fi hotspot as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. An even fancier Burmester sound system with 24 speakers is also available.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Mercedes offers these plush and powerful two-doors with a bevy of driver-assistance features. For more information about the S63's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Available blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
- Available lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist
- Available adaptive cruise control
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
Mercedes provides warranty protection that's on par with coverage offered by luxury rivals from BMW and Audi. However, unlike both of those competitors, Mercedes doesn’t offer any complimentary scheduled maintenance.
- Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
- Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
- No complimentary scheduled maintenance

More Features and Specs
In barely a decade, the gold mine known as Mercedes-AMG has quadrupled its global sales, to a record 132,000 last year. Much credit for the increase goes to Tobias Moers, who as you know has left to see if he can save Aston Martin. And credit must also go to the Mercedes strategy, slapping AMG (and AMG Sport) badges on anything in sight. Imaginary sources tell me that at company headquarters in Affalterbach, even the drinking fountains read “AMG,” after being reengineered for maximum gush. Meanwhile Philipp Schiemer, head of Mercedes-Benz do Brasil Ltda, has been named AMG’s new boss starting Aug. 1. He has big shoes to fill.
Another reason for AMG’s skyrocketing success is cars like the Mercedes-AMG S63 Cabriolet, and we figure spending time in AMG’s flagship is an excellent way to check in on the brand’s direction. The mighty Cabriolet’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 cranks out 603 hp and 663 lb-ft mated to a nine-speed, paddle-shifted AMG Speedshift transmission, the hybrid gearbox with a single input shaft and no torque converter.
Power aside, the S63 earns every AMG emblem on its stunning, plus-sized body. With no hyperbole, this is one of the world’s best automobiles, irrespective of price: An Apollonian ideal of form and function, with several goblets of Dionysian luxury. As the gods like to tell us mortals, “You really can have it all.”
The catch is an out-the-temple price of $227,005, with options—including a $12,700 suite of nougat-brown Designo napa leather—lifting my tester’s $184,495 base fare. That’s a nearly $45,000 upcharge over a fully sufficient S560 Cabriolet, with 463 hp from its own biturbo V8. It’s also $28,000 more than a BMW M8 Competition convertible starting from $156,495.
My S63 Cabrio also wore a $7,500 coat of Designo Manufaktur deep green paint, suiting the car’s elegant lines and character so perfectly I wouldn’t even consider another color. I stopped counting the compliments, including when a mass of protestors in my Brooklyn neighborhood marched past the top-down car at the curb and several stopped chanting long enough to drool over the Benz. Not one accused me of being The Man.
The S63 wears its AMG upgrades just as well, including a dramatic, jail-slatted Panamericana grille and Swarovski crystal elements accessorizing the headlamps (for an extra $1,750).
The front bumper evokes a jet wing slicing the atmosphere, with cavernous air inlets and a chrome-edged splitter. Side skirts get their own chrome inlay. Dual AMG tailpipes dominate the broad-beam rear and the honeycomb lighting signature is formed by 66 thin-film OLED light elements. Twenty-inch, five-spoke forged wheels added another $1,700. Optional silver-painted calipers wrap standard composite brakes with vented, slotted and perforated rotors all around.
The S63’s insides are arguably even better than the outside (and right before the new S-Class interior arrives). It’s a cabin that might turn a hardened Marxist into a willing tool of capitalism, from its conjoined 12.3-inch digital displays and metal-appliquéd IWC clock to sweeps of wood and leather. After initial resistance, I’ve made peace with Mercedes’ intricate, yet graphically gorgeous MBUX infotainment interface. The three adjustable driver’s readouts include my preferred “Progressive” setup, with a blue-tinged central speedometer flanked by dual configurable displays.
To underline why Mercedes has usurped Audi as the consensus leader in luxury interiors, consider this: We’re six years into this S-Class generation—including a robust refresh in 2018—and the flagship Benz still has a nicer cabin than the far-newer BMW 7-Series or Audi A8. Materials, fit and finish, and technology might all be a toss-up, but the Benz has a warmth and voluptuousness that’s a welcome counterpoint to the icy correctness of Audi’s larger models.
Warmth continued on a post-hike drive from the Appalachian Trail to Brooklyn, via the “Airscarf” blowing heated air from the headrests onto chilly necks—and also the robust massaging seats, including selectable hot-stone functions. Those multicontour front seats, covered in quilted and perforated hides, are up for active pursuits as well, with the adjustable dynamic function squeezing front occupants’ torsos as you bend the car into turns. I find it a distracting nudge-in-the-ribs when I’m hunting for an apex, but some people can’t get enough. Yet every occupant was blown away—or, rather, the opposite—by the absence of wind buffeting during top-down cruising. This AMG might be the calmest, most hairdo-friendly convertible I’ve ever driven: Even at a 75-mph cruise, a passenger and I conversed in a near-whisper. Unstressed ears picked out musical nuances from the remarkable Burmester 3D audio system, including huge, laser-etched speaker enclosures on the exposed deck behind rear headrests. The amphitheater’s stillness is aided by switches in the heated, leather-lidded center console—embossed with the AMG company logo—that raise a useful wind deflector atop the windshield header and another see-through screen on the rear deck.
If you’re wondering why this nearly 4,900-pound plush toy needs 603 hp to make its point, allow me to answer: It certainly does not. The massive grunt does allow an AMG-estimated 3.4-second dash to 60 mph, despite a throttle map that seems stingy about granting the full monty of power in first gear—even when I switched into the selectable race mode that might be the most superfluous setting on any luxury car.
The big AMG isn’t as hyper-athletic as the M8 convertible I drove a few weeks earlier, and it’s not trying to be. Push the S63 extra-hard—as I did on a scalding run on Route 301 near Cold Spring, New York—and there’s more a sense of shifting mass, and a touch of tentativeness through the steering wheel. Remember, compared with the two-plus-two M8 or Bentley, the S63 is a legit four-occupant car, with long doors and auto-sliding front seats for graceful rear-seat entrances and exits.
Still, the S63 has the grip and gumption to make a mockery of speed limits, all the way to its 186-mph peak. On the bucolic roller coaster of the Taconic Parkway, AMG’s big convertible flicked lesser cars aside like pawns on a chessboard. With paddles or without, the transmission whipped through gears with aplomb. And with its AMG performance exhaust system cranked up, the fabulous 4.0-liter sounds like a cage match between eight hairy-chested cylinders. For a piddling $400, two optional steering-wheel switches adjust damping and exhaust settings.
AMG’s reworking of the creamy Airmatic suspension adds welcome sinew to a standard S-Class that could be considered a mite soft for enthusiast tastes. Now, some of the ubiquitous, midlevel “AMG Sports” are a bit flatter in performance. But the S-Class seems one model that could truly benefit from an AMG Sport treatment, adding a skosh more handling and/or power without having to kick in $45,000 extra for a full-fledged S63.
Complaints? The steering wheel’s black chiclets controlling driver displays are fussy to operate. Top-down trunk space, bisected by a motorized divider to clear room for the roof, is shallow and scrawny at 6.9 cubic feet, rising to a Honda Civic-like 12.4 cubes with the top up.
I’d argue the AMG differs from the M8 in another key way: The M8 coupe is the obvious play, because it’s distinctly prettier than the M8 convertible and lives for pure performance. But unless you live above the Arctic Circle, you’re nuts to choose the S63 coupe over the S63 Cabriolet: You can afford any car you want, you’re this close to having it all and you pull up short? A 199-inch-long, S-Class convertible is designed to tell the world you’re above it all, you don’t share its prosaic concerns. If practicality even enters the discussion, then know thyself: Stick with an S-Class sedan for its four doors, estate-sized back seat and massive trunk.
Hell, an S63 selling point is dropping the awning-sized roof to show people what they’re missing. To wit, one of the greatest luxury cars money can buy. It should make Schiemer's job significantly easier.

2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe Review: Perfect To The End
The current Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe marks the end of an era. This posh two-door grand tourer won't be receiving a direct successor, and what a pity that is. Blending timeless coupe styling with a fabulously luxurious interior and effortlessly powerful engines, those qualities aren't enough to keep it alive in a segment that has lost ground in recent years. Even BMW decided to stop selling the M8 Coupe for the 2021 model year, although we now know that it will return for 2022. But, if you represent the small percentage of customers who still want a car like this, the S63 is one of the best. Its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 produces 603 horsepower to send this lounge on wheels to 60 mph in only 3.4 seconds. It is a smooth and utterly refined cross-country cruiser, and there's loads of technology on board; you'll need deep pockets, of course. Still, we lament the imminent departure of the S63 Coupe, which will no doubt exit the market as gracefully as it wafted in.
Read in this review:
2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs 2020 AMG S63 Coupe?

AMG S63 Coupe Exterior
The S-Class Coupe has always been a stunning piece of design, and the bold AMG touches haven't gone too far to spoil that. That wide, long stance remains as alluring as ever, and the pillarless profile is a classy throwback to large Mercedes coupes from decades gone by. Some of the AMG's enhancements include the broad vertical-bar grille, quad-exit exhaust tailpipes, and 20-inch AMG wheels. Costing north of $170k, the S63 gets premium features like all-LED exterior lighting, OLED taillamps, and a panorama roof.
The S63's ample dimensions equate to a length of 198.9 inches, a 115.9-inch wheelbase, and a height of 56 inches. With the mirrors included, it is a significant 83 inches wide. The BMW 8 Series Coupe is slightly wider with its mirrors included, but the S63 is bigger in every other key dimension. Far from a lightweight, the S63 Coupe has a hefty curb weight of 4,586 pounds. Just as well, then, that it also has over 600 horsepower.

Mercedes-AMG S63 Sports Coupe Performance
Engine and Transmission
The V8 engine is living on borrowed time, it seems. For now, the S63 Coupe appreciably continues with what is one of the best engines ever bolted together by AMG's technicians. This handcrafted 4.0-liter bi-turbo V8 generates 603 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Merc's 4Matic Plus all-wheel-drive system is standard, as is a refined AMG Speedshift nine-speed MCT (multi-clutch technology) automatic transmission.
The results are explosive. From rest, the S63 will hit 60 mph in only 3.4 seconds on its way to a limited top speed of 186 mph. That's even quicker than the 626-hp Bentley Continental GT W12, which needs 3.6 seconds for the 0-60 run. It's remarkable how easily the AMG's V8 shrugs off the weight of the big S63; be it high-speed cruising or surprising more agile sports cars in the city, the S63 Coupe can do it all.

Handling and Driving Impressions
The S63 may have an AMG badge on the back and a true AMG power plant in front, but there is only so much that can be done to contain over 4,500 pounds when blasting through a series of curves. It's far from a needlessly floaty boat to drive, though. Grip from the AWD system is good and the steering is accurate, if not bristling with feel. However, cornering is not this car's forte. As we found in our last AMG S63 Coupe review, it's much more at home munching up the miles with devastating ease, a task that is only interrupted by frequent visits to the pumps. The AMG adaptive sport Airmatic suspension does a wonderful job of ironing out bumps in Comfort mode, while Sport mode is adept at resisting body roll, but firms up the ride to a level that an S-Class Sedan driver would find unwelcome. But there is enough variability in the settings to find a balance that suits you, and overall, Mercedes-AMG has come up with a dynamic balance that suits the car's character.
AMG S63 Coupe Gas Mileage
Considering its power and weight, the S63's fuel consumption is not actually horrendous. It'll manage 16/26/19 mpg combined on the city/highway/combined cycles. By comparison, the more powerful but slower Bentley Continental GT W12 will return gas mileage figures of only 12/20/15 mpg, and last year's BMW M8 Coupe was also worse, with estimates of 15/21/17 mpg. Equipped with a large 21.1-gallon gas tank, the S63 should be able to attain a mixed range of around 400 miles.

Seating and Interior Space
Mercedes may have launched an all-new S-Class sedan with a sensational cabin, but the 2-door S63 Coupe's interior feels nothing short of opulent and expensive. No matter where you sit, you'll find plenty of soft-touch materials and plush Nappa leather seats. Of course, those in front get more space to stretch out, but the back seat is actually quite comfortable too as long as you're not over six-feet tall. The only real concern here is a lack of foot space, so one does feel a bit confined over longer distances. Both front seats come with heating, ventilation, massaging, and 12-way power-adjustability. It's a bit trickier climbing into the back, but that's true of any sports coupe or sports car, and at least the soft-close doors are a convenient and upscale touch. Owners should also watch out for those long doors in tighter parking spots.

AMG S63 Coupe Trunk and Cargo Space
The S63 has a reasonable trunk size measuring 14.1 cubic feet. That's enough for essential activities like visiting the grocery store or for a weekend away for two, but it's also not a massive amount of space considering the sheer size of the coupe. In the cabin, there are some useful storage options for small items such as the door pockets, a small drawer in the center console in addition to the center console armrest compartment, and cupholders for both front and rear occupants. The glovebox is a decent size and rear-seat occupants have their own fold-down armrest with an integrated storage compartment.
AMG S63 Coupe Infotainment and Features
The new AMG S63 luxury coupe has a long list of standard features that would be more than what most of us are used to in a car, but at the price, it's what we'd expect. We'll start with the truly luxurious front seats; they're 12-way power-adjustable, can massage your tired posterior, and are both heated and ventilated. The rear seats can also be heated, but this is an optional extra. S63 drivers typically want to expend as little energy as possible on mundane vehicle functions, which explains why this coupe has a garage door opener, hands-free access, soft-closing doors, keyless go, remote start, and a power sunshade for the large panorama roof. Modern Mercedes models have always dazzled with their interior ambient lighting, and the S63 is no different thanks to a 64-color LED ambient lighting system.
A plethora of safety gear includes blind-spot assist, rear cross-traffic alert, an active parking assistant, and a surround-view camera system. Despite all these standard niceties, we imagine that many owners would choose to tick the box for adaptive cruise control. For the discerning customer, Swarovski crystal accents for the headlights, night vision, and heated front armrests are on offer.
The older COMAND infotainment system is still used in the S63 Coupe, and while it requires some familiarity, the combination of a touchpad controller, hard keys, and a rotary knob allow you to navigate its many functions quite efficiently. This system is linked to a 12.3-inch color central display and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with vivid graphics. We like that this display can mimic a traditional round gauge cluster, instead of BMW's edgier but less legible design. Mercedes has loaded its infotainment offering with nearly every feature in this car, which means you get Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth audio streaming, navigation, two USB ports, HD Radio, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The standard Burmester sound system has 13 speakers, but a more powerful 3D system with 25 speakers can be equipped. Other features include an SD card reader, a head-up display, and wireless charging. About the only thing that's missing is a wi-fi hotspot, but this is available as an optional extra.
AMG S63 Coupe Problems and Reliability
J.D. Power's rating for the 2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe is 75 out of 100, including a 74/100 score for quality and reliability. The BMW 8 Series has a better overall rating of 83/100. Some 2017-2021 S63 Coupes were affected by a widespread Mercedes recall for a faulty eCall system that sends out the wrong location to emergency responders following a crash.
There's a lot that could theoretically go wrong with such a complex vehicle, but Merc's four-year/50,000-mile basic and drivetrain warranty provides some peace of mind.

AMG S63 Coupe Safety
Neither the IIHS nor the NHTSA has yet published a crashworthiness review for the AMG S63 Coupe and, as it costs over $150,000, it's unlikely these agencies ever will. With all its safety systems, the S63 should provide excellent protection if the worst happens, though.
There are no less than 10 airbags including front knee airbags and curtain airbags for occupants in both rows. The usual systems like tire-pressure monitoring and electronic stability control are expected, but you also get attention assist, blind-spot monitoring, parking sensors with parking assistance, crosswind assist, adaptive high beams, lane-keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and a head-up display. A surround-view camera system enhances visibility. On the options list, you'll find advanced safety gear like adaptive cruise control, automatic speed takeover, and evasive steering assist.
Key Safety Features
Verdict: 🏁Is the 2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe a good car?
It's easier to appreciate something when the end is in sight, but even if we knew that a new-generation S63 Coupe was on the way, that wouldn't take away from what a superb grand tourer the current model still is. Inside and out, there are no wrinkles; this is still an absolutely gorgeous luxury coupe. There's real substance to go along with its A-list appearance, though. The powertrain is potent and emits a nice growl, even if it's wrapped in a refined veneer that accompanies every S-Class model. For extended road trips, we can't easily think of a better vehicle to drive this side of a Bentley or a Rolls-Royce, so comfortable and effortless is this Merc. It's lavishly equipped and can be laden with even more features if your budget allows. If you have the money for one, the S63 is worth buying even if just to place it in storage and look back in 20 years at what a high-performance, V8-engined grand tourer was all about in 2021, before electrification took over.
🚘What's the Price of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe?
The 2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Sports Coupe is almost $2,000 pricier than it was last year, with an MSRP that now stands at $173,100. That excludes tax, licensing, registration, and a destination charge of $1,050. This makes it one of the priciest coupes on sale in the US, and if that's not close enough to a Bentley Continental GT for your liking, you can always tack on every available option. Doing so will increase the price of the Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe to over $215,000.

🚗What Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe Model Should I Buy?
As there is only one trim to choose from, Mercedes has already made the decision for you. However, assuming you can afford a new S63 Coupe, a few options wouldn't hurt. We'd have ours in the stunning designo Cashmere White Magno matte paint along with the 20-inch AMG forged 10-spoke wheels. Inside, the designo Porcelain/Titian Red exclusive Nappa leather interior is something special, and we'd also tick the box for the Driver Assistance Package to get adaptive cruise control. Including destination, our total comes to $185,300.

2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe vs Bentley Continental GT
Surprisingly, these two super luxurious competitors aren't as far in price as you may expect considering the positioning of the Bentley brand. The Continental GT begins at just over $200,000, and perhaps the biggest factor in its favor is that illustrious badge. Your neighbor's A-Class may share a three-pointed star with the S63, but there is no such comparison to compact models if you own a Bentley. The "entry-level", V8-powered Continental GT isn't quite as rapid as the S63, but it's not terribly far behind. As much as the S63's interior delivers quality and style in spades, the Bentley is another cut above with its unrivaled craftsmanship. Both coupes are heavy but with enough 'sport' dialed in to make them feel surprisingly confident on a twisty road. The Mercedes has more features as standard and can be equipped with even more tech, but the Bentley's array of available materials and the customization potential are astonishing. At this level, it's all about making a statement, so we'll side with the Continental GT.
2021 Mercedes-AMG S63 Coupe vs BMW M8 Coupe
For the 2021 model year, BMW elected to stop selling the M8 Coupe and M8 Competition Coupe in the USA. That's unfortunate, as its sportier feel offered an interesting alternative to the more sumptuous Mercedes. However, you can still order the M8 Gran Coupe. It offers two extra doors so is more practical than the S63, and at $130,000, it's much cheaper. The BMW's specs are impressive; with 600 hp as standard, the M8 Gran Coupe will hit 60 mph in three seconds dead, an exceptional time. It's not as isolating as the S63 but is more engaging to drive. The BMW also comes with four-zone climate control, heated front armrests, and more widely adjustable front seats. However, the Mercedes feels grander from behind the wheel, with a much more welcoming cabin than the M8's conservative design. These two are different enough to make a direct comparison challenging, but we're going to choose the classier S63.

Why did I decide to write about this. The fact is that when she left home, she was wearing jeans and a white jacket. Now she came not only in a completely drunk state, but she was also wearing a light black dress, underneath it was either pantyhose or stockings - it.
For the first time she sucks me in front of someone. Yes, not just "someone" - he is almost her husband. Well, as a "husband" - they live together, almost. Love carrots are all things. They kiss all the time, which is the norm for couples whose relationship is a little over a year old.

We live in Germany and do not suffer. The allowance here is pretty decent, not exactly chic, but there is always enough for a drink and a snack. I will describe them a little. My mother's name is Galya, she is 40.
