Affalterbach – Mercedes-Benz has released a new E 63 AMG S-Model for both the Sedan and Estate (Wagon) with an output of 585 hp, 590 lb-ft of torque and featuring a newly developed performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system. The permanent all-wheel drive is also optionally available for the other E 63 AMG models – on which the V8 engine has been uprated from 525 hp to 557 hp, with 531 lb-ft of torque. With this range, Mercedes-AMG is premiering high-performance passenger car models with an all-wheel-drive system geared to driving dynamics.

The new E 63 AMG presents a more powerful character and a more dynamic appearance than all its predecessors: the new AMG design philosophy is immediately apparent at first glance, with the new “twin blade” radiator grille and the new “A-wing” in the AMG front apron defining the exclusive look. As previously, the top AMG model is available as a Saloon and Estate. The E 63 AMG’s appeal is also boosted by substantially enhanced value for money: customers now receive more performance and driving dynamics and a broader scope of standard equipment and appointments.

“‘Driving Performance’ encapsulates the philosophy pursued at Mercedes-AMG,” explains Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. The new model variants of the E 63 AMG and CLS 63 AMG clearly demonstrate how we are now offering our customers even more individuality. The S-Models in particular represent the most attractive proposition in the segment, boasting substantially enhanced value for money: the highest power and torque ratings in the segment, the new performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive, the new design and substantially more standard equipment and appointments are the outstanding strengths of the new high-performance automobiles from Affalterbach. With the new all-wheel-drive S-Models we will reach new customers and markets.”

“With the exclusive S-Models, we have sharpened the dynamic profile of the
E 63 AMG and the CLS 63 AMG substantially,” adds Tobias Moers, head of overall vehicle development and member of the management board of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. “These high power and torque ratings are exclusive to AMG. Our AMG 5.5-litre V8 engine remains the most efficient series production V8 engine in the world. The newly developed, performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive attains the best acceleration values in the segment, as well as offering our customers markedly higher driving dynamics than ever before.”
