On one hand, the ideas Renault is suggesting with the car (four wheel drive, better fuel efficiency, increased fan engagement) are a more practical take on the next 10 years of Formula One.

Engine Size Matters

For those in the market for the ultimate in performance, the Mercedes-AMG S63 and S65 Sedans get upgrades as well.

"Impressive power, torque and performance on the road, as well as expressive design distinguish the new Mercedes-AMG S63 and S65," said Tobias Moers, Mercedes-AMG chairman of the board, in a statement.

"With the S63, we additionally took a major development step that supports our leadership claim in the areas of driving dynamics, performance, traction, equipment and demonstrative comfort. The S65, with its high-torque 6.0L V-12 biturbo engine, remains the spearhead of the S-Class models."

AMG's "handcrafted" twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8replaces the twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 found in the Mercedes-AMG S63, yet it still produces generous 603 hp — 26 hp over the previous version — and 664 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm. It offers a 0-60 mph time of 3.4 seconds and a limited top speed of 186 mph.

AMG's cylinder deactivation system provides better fuel economy and Mercedes claims that the transition from four to eight-cylinder operation is immediate and imperceptible. We'll have to get back to you on that.

The AMG S65 Sedan sports a "handcrafted" twin-turbo 6.0-liter V-12 engine that produces 621 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque @ 4,300 rpm. It can sprint you from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds and also has a limited top speed of 186 mph. The V-12 is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission.

Four driving modes are offered that include comfort, sport, sport+, and individual in both sedans. The AMG S65 features an optional "curve" driving mode that is integrated in the sedan's Magic Body Control suspension.

The curve-tilting function allows the S65 to tilt inside a turn by up to 2.65 degrees. AMG says this reduces perceived lateral forces and almost eliminates body roll.

Both the S63 and S65 receive high-performance compound braking systems with compound 15.4 x 1.4-in. rotors with 6-piston aluminum fixed calipers up front and 14.2 x 0.9-in. rotors with single-piston floating calipers on the rear.
