Mercedes-AMG introduces the latest generation of E63 and E63 S which are claimed as the fastest E-Class. Ahead of the official launch in the event the Los Angeles Auto Show 2016, two variants of the E63 is equipped with smaller engines than previous versions (5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8). They are now pinning 4.0-liter force-fed V8 engine and 4Matic, as the standard driving of Mercedes-Benz, all-wheel-drive all over the world.
In standard conditions, E63 with 8-cylinder engine capable of spewing power up to 563 HP and torque of 750 NM. This variant only takes 3.5 seconds to accelerate from rest to 100 kph. While the E63 S variant has a power of 603 HP with a torque of 850 NM. By attaching the letter S, this variant is better able to accelerate from 0-100 kph in 3.3 seconds.
The ability of both engines is limited so that Mercedes-AMG E63 is only able to be driven up to speeds of 250 kph. While the Mercedes-AMG E63 S is a little better because it can speed up to 300 kph.
Although claimed as the fastest E-Class ever made, the both cars are also capable of “forced” to be fuel efficient. AMG made four of eight piston stop working by activating the comfort transmission mode. The program works when the engine turns working in the range of 1000-3250 RPM.
The transmission system itself uses a 9-speed automatic with Multi Clutch Technology (MCT) technology. The gearshift is also getting easier by using paddle-shift pinned behind the wheel. This system will adjust the engine power line at all four wheels simultaneously.
Although Mercedes-Benz does not give the option of rear-wheel drive mode on this car, but for the E63 S 4Matic, consumers can use the Drift Mode feature that only distributes power to the rear wheels only. The exterior display of Mercedes-AMG looks more stylish thanks to the use of the rim 19″(20″ for the S version) and the specific grille shape when compared to the other E-Class. At the rear, four exhaust pipes and a rear spoiler add a special impression on this vehicle.
