This years Top Gear festival is already mooted to be the biggest and best Festival so far, visitors can expect a bumper show on the track and in the stadium and the action doesn't stop there! The Expo Zone will be home to a host of manufacturers in the industry, one of them being Mercedes Benz, their highlight will be the AMG stand and the focus of it being "driving performance".
Mercedes Benz AMG needs no introduction to the South African market with them being pretty popular amongst most buyers and fans. Which is why they will be in for a treat when they visit the stand during the Festival as the all new S63 AMG Coupe will be making it's debut on South African soil there. The S Class Coupe takes over from the CL Class as the companies flagship long base luxury coupe. With it's elegant yet sporty styling this new vehicle from the German manufacturer will have heads turning, add to that the aggressive AMG kit which accompanies the S63 Coupe and you'll have tounges wagging too!
At the heart of the beast you will find a 5.5 litre, V8 twin-turbo pushing out 430Kw, 585bhp and 900Nm of torque! It propels the car from 0-100kph in less than 4 seconds with the help of a 7 speed automatic "speedshift" gear box and the grunt from the massive four pipe configuration will send shivers down your spine! This car is the epitome of AMG's "driving performance".
Other things to look out for at the AMG stand is a demonstration of power and agility of the fastest 4-cylinder production engines in the world. As professional race drivers will be taking the A45 and CLA45 through their paces in the AMG Demo Theatre.
