Mercedes Benz has had a longstanding relationship with IWC which includes the making of special edition timepieces — like this one — that pay homage to the automaker, as well as dashboard clocks made by IWC in a number of Mercedes over the years. Today, with the announcement of the 2014 Mercedes Benz S63 AMG 4MATIC, IWC is inside yet another Mercedes.

The S63 is powered by a 5.5L twin-turbo V8 that produces 577 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. It is lighter than its predecessor and can do 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. It features AMG suspension, brakes and a 4MATIC all wheel drive system. And most importantly for IWC fans, the dashboard is equipped with an IWC clock.
