Can You Say FAST! This Mercedes AMG E63 Will Go From 0-to-60 In 3.3 Seconds

AMG E63

With a handcrafted 603 hp and variable-torque AMG Performance 4MATIC+, the E 63 S Sedan is one of the quickest Mercedes-AMG models yet. It’s also one of the most rewarding and luxurious sedans ever to take track tech to the road.

Mercedes-AMG is redefining the performance sedan. The brand is turning the most intelligent executive sedan into the most powerful E-Class of all time with the next generation of the E63. Mercedes-AMG is also setting new benchmarks in this market segment with its innovative technologies.

The intelligent drive strategy raises the limits of the performance sedan’s vehicle dynamics to a completely new level. Delivering superior acceleration, the 4.0L V8 biturbo engine generates up to 603 hp, making this the most powerful engine to have ever been installed in an E- Class. At the same time it is even more efficient thanks to a cylinder deactivation system fitted as standard. With zero to 60 mph acceleration of just 3.3 seconds in the E63 S, the new sedan is at the top of its class.

The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) nine-speed sport transmission is combined with a wet start-off clutch for the first time, enabling more agile response times to be achieved. Another highlight is the completely new AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system. It combines the advantages of various drive configurations. Torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which until now was strongly rear-biased, is fully variable for the first time. This ensures optimum traction right up to the physical limit, no matter the road conditions.

The expressive exterior design, featuring a new radiator grille and coupe-style inset hood, underlines the performance figures. The next generation of the E63 thus offers a completely new level of sportiness and comfort.

The latest generation of the E63 sees Mercedes-AMG introducing a number of new developments that redefine the performance sedan. Innovative powertrain engineering and maximum performance are combined with distinctive design, exclusive equipment and the latest infotainment features for comprehensive, connected multimedia applications.

A unique front: the exterior design

Every detail of the exterior and interior is designed to enable AMG Driving Performance to be experienced at first hand. The expressive exterior design is all about sinuous edges and defined muscles. With a completely distinctive design forward of the A-pillar, the sporty front also demonstrates the effort that Mercedes-AMG has put into the styling. For the first time on an AMG sedan, the hood is inset between the fenders and bumper like on a coupe, thus exhibiting an entirely new, more dynamic approach to exterior sculpting. More powerful-looking and .67-inches wider, the wheel arches accommodate greater track width and larger wheels on the front axle.

The new radiator grille with twin louvers in silver chrome, vertical black struts and “AMG” lettering likewise emphasizes the distinctive look. A wide front bumper inspired by the design of a jet wing, with flics in black and a large front splitter, impressively epitomizes the power of the new models. It also showcases the sophisticated cooling technology – a feature common to motorsports and another visual reference to the powerful engine. The two louvers in the outer cooling-air intakes also help in this regard—their targeted wing profile directs air to the wheel arch coolers.

Overall, the front section exudes exceptional power and thus conveys the strong forwards thrust of the new performance sedan at first glance.
