With 610bhp and 850Nm on tap, this Mercedes-AMG E63 S is the most powerful E-Class ever produced and it will make its way to India on 4th May.
If speed is your kind of poison, then you are sure to have drooled over the outright performance and sporty design of all generations of the Mercedes-AMG E63 models. The Stuttgart-based car maker is about to bring in the new-generation model in India on 4th May. Mercedes-AMG will only be bringing the fully-loaded E63 S 4Matic trim to Indian shores.
Downsizing is the trending word in the world of performance cars and the Mercedes-AMG E63 S is no different. While the previous generation model was fitted with a 550bhp 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8, this new model pumps out 610bhp from a relatively smaller 4.0-litre bi-turbo. This new motor makes 850Nm of torque – up from 720Nm in its predecessor. Needless to say, this has made the new E63 S faster than ever before, crossing the 100km/h mark on the speedo in just 3.4 seconds. This makes it the fastest E-Class ever (Note: it is also faster than the AMG GT R), and on par with the latest BMW M5 that has flaunts identical acceleration figures. The E63 S has a controlled top speed of 250km/h but it can be increased to 300km/h if you tick the AMG package. If this kind of performance doesn’t get your adrenaline pumping, we wonder what else will?
While there is more power in offer, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S also has cylinder deactivation technology for improved efficiency. This new E63 S has been fitted with Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel-drive system but if you want to go sideways, the car also has a ‘drift mode’ that essentially sends out all its power to the rear wheel. Aside from the higher top-speed in the AMG pack, you can also opt-in for the AMG sports suspension, electronic diff-lock, and carbon ceramic disc brakes.
In terms of design, the E63 S does justice to its sporty performance. From the narrow single-slat grille boasting the Mercedes emblem, the aggressively sculpted bumpers with large air dams to the sporty looking alloy wheels, the E63 S is quite a looker. When launched in India, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S will compete against the recently launched BMW M5 and the likes.
