  • (1888PressRelease) July 02, 2013 - The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine continues to be the absolute pinnacle of efficiency: the combination of high performance and low fuel consumption remains unrivalled by any other competitor in the segment worldwide. The E 63 AMG is available with 557 hp V8 engine.

    The launch of the new, customised model variants will offer Mercedes-AMG customers greater scope for individuality than ever before. The new high-performance, exclusive S-Models are an even more attractive proposition than the AMG Performance packages which have enjoyed great popularity to date. The S-Models form an integral part of the new AMG model range constellation as distinctive model variants; additional AMG high-performance automobiles will become available as S-Models in future. Customers now receive more performance and driving dynamics and a broader scope of standard equipment and appointments. The new E 63 AMG also presents a more dynamic appearance than its predecessor. The new AMG design philosophy is immediately apparent at first glance, with the "twin blade" radiator grille and the "A-wing" in the AMG front apron defining the exclusive look.

    Acceleration to 100 km/h from a standing start in 3.6 seconds provides the E 63 AMG S with a comfortable lead over the entire competition; the top speed stands at 250 km/h (electronically limited).

    On the new S-Model the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine generates a maximum output of 585 hp and maximum torque of 800 Newton metres - representing an increase of 28 hp over the AMG Performance package which was previously available as an option. This enhanced performance and power results from adaptation of the engine application, an increase in peak pressure and a rise in the charge pressure from 0.9 to 1.0 bar. At 557 hp and 720 Newton metres, the basic model also boasts an increase of 32 hp and 20 Newton metres over its predecessor.

    AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission for personal set-up :

    Maximum individuality and customised dynamics - these are the special strengths of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission. The four modes - "C" (Controlled Efficiency), "S" (Sport), "S+" (Sport plus) and "M" (Manual) - offer the driver a personal set-up. In "C" mode, the ECO start/stop function is active and switches off the eight-cylinder engine when the vehicle is at a standstill. In addition, the transmission characteristics are tangibly soft, with smooth and early gear changes. Second gear is generally used as the starting gear in this mode. An automatic double-declutching function for downshifting and the RACE START function are also included as standard with the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission.

    E 63 AMG S-Model with differential lock on the rear axle :

    The E 63 AMG S sees Mercedes-AMG going one step further. True to AMG's "Driving Performance" brand claim, the most powerful E-Class is additionally fitted with a differential lock on the rear axle. This high-tech package results in a further increase in traction, ultimately leading to even greater driving dynamics and enhanced driving enjoyment, especially on the race track.

    All E 63 AMG models feature the AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with electronically controlled damping system.

    The front axle employs a steel-spring suspension system, while the rear axle is fitted with a fully load-bearing air suspension system. Pressing the button marked with a shock absorber on the AMG DRIVE UNIT is sufficient to switch the electronics from "Comfort" to "Sport" or "Sport plus".

    Distinctive design creating an even more dynamic and exclusive aura :

    The striking air outlet openings at the sides, the black grille and the two sets of twin chrome tailpipes belonging to the AMG sports exhaust system lend the rear an impression of width. The black diffusor insert with pronounced fins provides the E 63 AMG with a powerful touch of race track atmosphere at the rear.

    Dynamic, exclusive atmosphere inside :

    With the standard-fit nappa leather upholstery, the black interior of the E 63 AMG S-Model features grey contrasting topstitching on the AMG sports seats, the door centre panels, the door armrests and the centre console. Silver seat belts are also part of this standard interior. The rim of the AMG Performance steering wheel in black nappa leather is flattened at the top and bottom and boasts grip areas in Alcantaraź and grey contrasting stitching.

    The front head restraints of the AMG sports seats incorporate exclusive embossed AMG emblems. The AMG instrument cluster in a new design features an "S AMG" logo on the 320 km/h speedometer and red applications. The standard scope of equipment and appointments further includes AMG door sill panels with white LED illumination, an electrically operated rear roller blind (Saloon only) and the anti-theft protection package.

    Superior-quality materials, excellent workmanship and an exclusive atmosphere are common to all E 63 AMG models. The new AMG-specific analogue clock in IWC design is an attractive eye-catcher between the two central air vents.
