No more teasing, no more playing games! Mercedes takes the wraps off the new W212 based E63 AMG super saloon. A 525 hp monster which can be considered as the ultimate sedan for the ultimate middle-aged man!
The AMG-powered E-Class has always had a secret coolness whit it, a charisma that make it so desirable. It looks discreet and yet is so powerful that can take on Ferraris and Lambos and beat them badly! The new E63 too, seems to have all the bases covered.
As mentioned earlier it’s got 6.3 liter AMG V8 which checks out 525 hp 465lb ft of torque. Connected to the speedshift MCT transmission, it does 0-100 in 4.5 seconds but as always restrained at 250 km/h top speed. It uses the same sort of suspension as the SL63 which unlike the previous generation of AMG cars is much more responsive and have settings for comfort or sporty driving which actually work! and is not there just for showing off.
Good thing is you can’t really tell this is a such a monstrous car by looking at it. On the surface it looks pretty similar to the normal E-Class with AMG sport pack. But the minute you start it and hear that rumbling V8 you realize this is no ordinary sedan. Of course the usual AMG recipe applies here, sportier aprons, a pair of twin exhausts, flared wheel arches and fabulous wheels.
The new 2010 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG will cost around 80,000 Euro, which is a lot! specially for a discreet sedan, but then this is a lot of car.
