SPOTTED AT THE NÜRBURGRING: Don’t let the garish camouflage fool you, beneath the black tape lies Mercedes-Benz next S63 AMG.

Mercedes-Benz is preparing the next AMG variant of its flagship S-Class. The new model was spotted undergoing testing near Germany’s Nürburgring.

Rumour has it the German automaker’s 5.5 litre V8 turbo will power the S63 while a bi-turbo variant of the same engine will power the S65 capable of 469kW.

The current 6.2-litre engine used in previous 63 AMG models are set to be phased out.

Both engines should be mated to seven-speed Speedshift MCT transmissions, which will ensure this is really a fast flagship.
