Germany: Affalterbach – Since the introduction of the legendary “Hammer” in 1986, the E-Class has grown to become one of the central models that form the brand core of Mercedes-AMG. In its latest form, the exceptional comfort and luxury of the E-Class has been combined with the performance and feel typical of Mercedes-AMG. Both the Sedan and Wagon have undergone extensive design updates, and now sport a significantly larger, completely restyled front section that bears the AMG-specific radiator grille and proudly displays a larger central star. Combined with flatter all-LED multibeam head lights, flared wheel arches, and a rounded-fit hood with prominent power domes, these new models from Affalterbach benefit from a more aggressive look. “Thanks to our efficient V8 engine and fully variable all-wheel drive, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ offers outstanding vehicle dynamics and performance at the highest level. In conjunction with an extensive design update, which has had the added benefit of improved aerodynamics, our customers are now presented with an even more attractive overall package,” says Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The look and feel typical of the AMG brand is continued in the high-quality interior of the E 63 S 4MATIC+, which is characterized by a resolutely sporty ambience and an exclusive flair. The AMG seats upholstered in Nappa leather provide optimum lateral support, and have an AMG-specific seat pattern layout with an “AMG” badge in the front backrests. As standard, Nappa leather is also used for the dashboard and beltline trim. As an option, seat belts can be made available in crystal grey. As a new AMG-specific upholstery, Nappa leather in black/titanium grey pearl with yellow contrast topstitching is now available.
Powered by a hand-built AMG V8 biturbo engine, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ can deliver an impressive power output of 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. It is available across a wide range of engine speeds (2,500 to 4,500 rpm) and conveys the feeling of effortless superiority with every accelerator pedal position The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission can be manually operated via the aluminum shift paddles located on the left and right hand sides behind the steering wheel rim. The restyled paddles are ergonomically adapted to the new AMG Performance steering wheel, slightly larger than the previous ones, and are positioned further down. . The Sedan completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, and the Wagon completes the jaunt in 3.5 seconds. Stay tuned for pricing of these magnificent pieces of performance bliss.
