2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe

Power will come from AMG’s familiar twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V-8, which in this application delivers a massive 585 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque.  The engine is paired with AMG’s SPEEDSHIFT MCT seven-speed automatic transmission and will rocket the coupe to 62 mph in just 3.9 seconds. The rear-wheel-drive model needs about 4.3 seconds to achieve the same feat.

Pricing and availability for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC Coupe will be announced closer to the car’s sales launch this fall. With the S63 AMG sedan commanding a price tag of $140,425, including destination, be ready to hand over close to $200k once options are included if you fancy the coupe.

2015 Nissan Murano

Seems the Murano and the Maxima will have a very similar design. In tune with Altima/Sentra and Pathfinder/Rouge.
