    THe S55 has 350-365 hp something like that and on the www.mbusa.com website it says that 0-60 is 5.7 seconds... well this S63 has 444 hp and the same 0-60 time is posted.. this must be a typo or something right? 85-100 more hp should make some difference unless its substantially heavier

    This must be a typo. CL63 AMG is reported to be 5.5 and S63 AMG 5.7 seconds.<!-- Signature -->

    Maybe the weight is the problem.<!-- Signature -->

    Those are claimed times..times are usually lower when magazines tested it..i've heard that Mercedes test their cars with 2 people and luggage. I estimate the S63's 0-60 time in the low 5s. The 367bhp s600 did 5.4secs.<!-- Signature -->

    the CL55 being as fast as the S55 (if i'm not mistaking), the S63 and CL63 are faster <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->

    MB official web site claims it also at 5.7, but i really think it can do it in something like 5.3 or 5.2 sec!

    it can go either way, either a typo or just this car that this website has is different from the on from Mercedes.
