A few days ago we told you about the new version of Mercedes E63 AMG which gets the new 5.5 liter BiTurbo V8 instead of the old 6.3 unit. Now the company released full details of the car.

If we get straight to the facts and figures, this engine has 5461 cc, eight-cylinder and a peak output of 386 kW (525 hp) and torque of 700 Nm. Fit it with the 8000 Euro AMG Performance Pack and it makes 410 kW (557 hp) and 800 Nm.

It does that while averaging 9.8 litres per 100 kilometres according to NEDC combined, with CO2 emissions of 230 grams per kilometre (Estate: 10.0 l/100 km; 234 g/km).

The car gets the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission with Controlled Efficiency (“C”) mode in addition to the “S” (Sport), “S+” (Sport plus) and “M” (Manual).

Looks-wise the car is unchanged over the 6.3 except for the new SLS wheels and the V8 Biturbo lettering on the wings. Inside the cabin, in line with other new AMG cars like the CLS63, it gets a a three-spoke steering wheel with flattened top and bottom, aluminium shift paddles, the perforated leather in the grip areas and the three-dimensional design of the airbag cover with its “Silver Shadow” metallic trim element, plus the iconic E-SELECT shift lever with embossed AMG badge.
