- Compliance with EU6 emissions standard right from the
The AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine in the E 63 AMG delivers signature AMG high performance on all fronts. From top speed through torque generation, power delivery, engine sound and suitability for long trips to hallmark Mercedes reliability, the eight-cylinder engine with an output of up to 430 kW meets high expectations and leads the way in its segment. Today’s challenges also include peak performance in terms of efficiency. The E 63 AMG continues to set new standards here – the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine remains the most efficient series production V8 engine around. A look at the fuel consumption picture confirms its outstanding credentials: running on 9.8 litres per 100 kilometres in NEDC combined, the E 63 AMG demonstrates in impressive fashion how fascinating dynamics and low fuel consumption can be combined to perfection.
As previously, the E 63 AMG is available in a choice of two power ratings: as the basic model with an output of 410 kW and 720 Nm of torque and as the S-Model rated at 430 kW and generating up to 800 Nm of torque. This represents an increase of up to 24 kW
and 20 Newton metres in comparison to the respective predecessor models. The technical basis for this uprating 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. The engine experts at AMG have achieved compliance with the requirements of the particularly stringent EU6 emissions standard, which will not become mandatory until 2015, by optimising the injection timing with the aid of multiple fuel injection and by modifying the European on-board diagnostics.
