Affalterbach. Oct 2016 - Mercedes-AMG is redefining the performance saloon. The brand is turning the most intelligent executive saloon into the most powerful E-Class of all time - in the shape of the next-generation E 63 4MATIC+ and E 63 S 4MATIC+.
Mercedes-AMG is also setting new benchmarks in this market segment with its innovative technologies. The intelligent drive strategy raises the limits of the performance saloon’’s vehicle dynamics to a completely new level. Delivering even faster acceleration, the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine generates up to 450 kW (612 hp). This makes it the most powerful engine ever installed in an E-Class. It’s also even more efficient thanks to a cylinder deactivation system fitted as standard, therefore setting the benchmark in its segment. With acceleration from 0 – 62 mph in 3.4 seconds the new business limousine is at the top of its class.The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) nine-speed sports transmission is combined with a wet start-off clutch for the first time. This allows more agile response times to be achieved. Another highlight is the completely new AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system. It combines the advantages of various drive configurations. Torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which until now was strongly rear-biased, is fully variable for the first time. This ensures optimum traction right up to the physical limit, whatever the road conditions. The exterior design, featuring a new radiator grille and coupé-style inset bonnet, underlines the performance figures. The next generation of the E 63 thus offers a completely new level of sportiness and comfort.
In the latest generation of the E 63 4MATIC+ and the E 63 S 4MATIC+ Mercedes-AMG is introducing a number of new developments that redefine the performance saloon. Innovative powertrain engineering and maximum performance are combined with distinctive design, exclusive equipment and the latest infotainment features for comprehensive, connected multimedia applications.
““The new E 63 models represent the biggest step forward we’’ve ever taken from one generation to the next. Vehicle dynamics were especially important to us. At the start of the development process, we opted for a fully variable all-wheel drive system which, when combined with the advanced performance of the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, reaffirms our brand’’s ““Driving Performance”“ claim,”“ explains Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
