That's a whole lot of twist.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Mercedes on Monday unveiled the 2023 Mercedes-AMG S63 E Performance.

Its powertrain combines a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 gas engine and an electric motor on the rear axle to generate a net 791 horsepower and 1,055 pound-feet of torque.

All that thrust leads to a 0- to 60-mph time of just 3.2 seconds, which is proper supercar territory.

Just like the GT 4-Door and C-Class AMGs before it, the S63 nestles the electric motor together with an electronic limited-slip differential and its own two-speed transmission.

The gas engine bolts to a nine-speed automatic transmission, and on its own, the V8 produces 603 hp and 664 lb-ft.

Mechanical connections ensure the electric motor can deliver power to either axle as needed, although at just 13.1 kilowatt-hours, I wouldn't expect a ton of electric-only range from this large luxury sedan.

Stylistically, the S63 doesn't stray too far from the rest of the S-Class family.

Standard equipment includes active engine mounts (a first for the S-Class), additional underbody braces, air suspension with adaptive dampers, active roll bars and composite brakes with six-piston front calipers.
