Mercedes-AMG Unveils the 2018 E63 S, Its Most Powerful E-Class Car Ever Built

Mercedes-AMG, the high performance division of Mercedes-Benz, has just taken the wraps off the E63 and E63 S sedans – the most powerful E class models of all time.

Under the hood is AMG’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 running through a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission, which cranks out 604bhp and 627lb ft of torque in the S model, and 563bhp and 553lb ft in the standard. Both cars will go from 0-62mph in less than 3.5 seconds.

Both versions of the E63 feature a 4MATIC+ permanent all-wheel-drive, allowing for great performance on a variety of terrain, while the E63S boasts varying car modes such as “Race” and “Drift”.

The E63 will cost approximately $92,000 USD while the S edition will cost $102,000 USD, with both going on sale in January 2017.
