The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG dynamic sports sedan with day-to-day suitability is the top-of-the-line E-Class model, offering an impressive combination of outstanding performance, exhilarating driving dynamics and a technology transfer from the SL63 AMG high-performance Roadster.
The AMG-designed and developed, naturally aspirated 6.2-litre V8 is a fantastic engine, with a glorious deep warble and an awesome top end beyond 5000rpm. Power is up on the previous E63 by 11bhp too, and AMG is even keener to trumpet that fuel consumption has been improved by 12 per cent.
The new E63 AMG distinguishes itself from the standard Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedans with a newly developed AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with electronically controlled damping and a new front axle, and with its unique exterior and interior design. Newly developed compound brakes are also available as an option for the top-of-the-line E-Class model.
On the inside, the BMW M5 fighter features electrically adjustable AMG sports seats, AMG sports steering wheel in a four-spoke design with AMG shift paddles, AMG instrument cluster with an AMG main menu, door entry sills with AMG lettering and a sports pedal cluster. Other interior fitments include an AMG selector lever with one-touch logic and an AMG DRIVE UNIT that is mounted in the centre console, which provides adjustments for the MCT sports transmission, ESP functions, suspension setup as well as AMG driving modes.
The E63 AMG is also equipped with tinted main headlights. The exterior is also finished with AMG side skirts and a AMG rear apron with a black diffuser insert. To round up the visual upgrade, the rear end is finished with chrome-plated twin tailpipes, with the E63 sitting close to the ground with 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels (width of 9 and 9.5 inches) wrapped with 255/40 R 18 tires at the front and 285/35 R 18 tires at the rear.
With all this sophistication, it’s a surprise to find you use a regular key to bring the car to life. The exhaust is nicely vocal, the aluminium paddles on the back of the wheel are cool to the touch and the weighting of the steering is instantly good. The automatic gearshifts are discerningly timed in ‘Sport plus’
