Mercedes has released a new promotional video that shows the updated 2010 S63 AMG and S65 AMG in action.

The refreshed cars feature a variety of minor exterior styling tweaks such as a more prominent grille, a new front bumper with air intake-mounted LED daytime running lights, a redesigned rear bumper with an integrated diffuser, and new LED taillights. Interior updates are also modest but include a redesigned center console with wood trim and a new steering wheel.

Power for the S63 comes from a naturally aspirated V8 engine that develops 386 kW (525 hp) and 630 Nm of torque, this allows the sedan to run from 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. The S65 on the other hand comes equipped with a massive 6.0-liter biturbo V12 engine that produces a 450 kW (612 hp) and 1000 Nm of torque. Despite the huge power difference, the S65 AMG is only 0.2 seconds faster to 100 km/h because of the car's inability to effectively get all its power to the ground. The S65's massive power rating also has other disadvantages as it forces the car to use a five-speed SPEEDSHIFT automatic transmission instead of the S63's more modern seven-speed SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission.

The super-sedans also come equipped with the latest technological innovations such as a sports suspension with crosswind stabilization, a Torque Vectoring Brake system for improved handling, an Attention Assist drowsiness detection system, Night View Assist with pedestrian detection, and optional Speed Limit Assist.
