Mercedes-AMG continues to champion performance, dynamism and efficiency: the new E 63 AMG is now also available as a particularly exclusive and powerful S-Model with an output of 430 kW, 800 Newton metres of torque. The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine continues to be the absolute pinnacle of efficiency: the combination of high performance and low fuel consumption remains unrivalled by any other competitor in the segment worldwide. This powerful V8 engine has been uprated from 386 kW and 700 Nm to 410 kW and 720 Nm of torque. With this range, Mercedes-AMG is premiering high-performance passenger car models geared to driving dynamics.

The launch of the new high-performance, exclusive S-Model is an even more attractive proposition than the AMG Performance packages which have enjoyed great popularity to-date. The S-Model forms an integral part of the new AMG model range constellation as distinctive model variants; additional AMG high-performance automobiles will become available as S-Models in future. 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. The new E 63 AMG also presents a more dynamic appearance than its predecessor. The new AMG design philosophy is immediately apparent at first glance, with the “twin blade” radiator grille and the “A-wing” in the AMG front apron defining the exclusive look. The top AMG model is available locally as a sedan variant.

Overview of models for the southern African market:

E 63 AMG Sedan E 63 AMG S Sedan
Displacement 5461 cc 5461 cc
Output 410 kW at 5500 r/min 430 kW at 5500 r/min
Max. torque 720 Nm at 1750-5250 r/min 800 Nm at 1750-5000 r/min
Fuel consumption NEDC combined 9.8 l/100 km 9.9 l/100 km
CO2 emissions 230 g/km 232 g/km
Acceleration 0-100 km/h 4.2 sec 4.1 sec
Top speed 250 km/h* 250 km/h*

* electronically limited

Acceleration to 100 km/h from a standing start in 4.1 seconds provides the E 63 AMG S with a comfortable lead over the entire competition; the top speed stands at 250 km/h (electronically limited).

On the new S-Model the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine generates a maximum output of 430 kW and maximum torque of 800 Newton metres – representing an increase of 20 kW over the AMG Performance package which was previously available as an option. This enhanced performance and power results from adaptation of the engine application, an increase in peak pressure and a rise in the charge pressure from 0.9 to 1.0 bar. At 410 kW and 720 Nm, the basic model also boasts an increase of 24 kW and 20 Nm over its predecessor.

Despite added power and enhanced performance, all models of the E 63 AMG offer high efficiency, low fuel consumption and low exhaust emissions. The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine remains the most efficient series production V8 engine around – with substantially more cubic capacity than its direct competitors. The E 63 AMG rated at 410 kW with rear-wheel drive runs on 9.8 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres in accordance with NEDC (230 grams of CO2). The S-Model rated at 430 kW has only marginally higher fuel consumption, at 9,8 to 9,9 litres per 100 km (232 grams of CO2). On top of this, following the implementation of internal engine measures all E 63 AMGs meet the requirements of the stringent Euro 6 emissions standard which will not enter into force until 2015.
