The top of the regular Mercedes-Benz S-Class 2018 model range is the Mercedes-AMG S 63 L, which is a princely $375,000. 

It builds on the kit offered in the models below, and pushes the sports luxury aspect further, with a full AMG body kit, 20-inch AMG wheels, AMG specific drive programs, AMG brakes, an uprated exhaust, sports steering and retuned suspension. Inside there are model-specific elements, special wood trim, front seats with active bolstering, and heated and ventilated rear seats. 

All of that is on top of the extensive standard equipment list, which includes heated and cooled front seats,  LED headlights and a new interior ambient lighting system, a panoramic sunroof, head-up display, auto-dimming rear-view and side mirrors, a wireless phone charging system, keyless entry and push-button start, auto-closing doors and an electric boot lid, too. 

It's powered by a hardcore bit of engine hardware from Mercedes-AMG: a thumping twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine with 450kW/900Nm, with a nine-speed MCT multi-clutch auto and rear-wheel drive. Fuel use is rated at a surprisingly low 9.0L/100km.
