As you know the current Mercedes E63 AMG comes with the 6.3 liter naturally-aspirated V8, the same they use in the C63 as well. But now Mercedes is offering the new biturbo 5.5 liter V8 for this executive saloon.
The biturbo engine is only reserved for the high-end models like the latest CLS and the CL, but now you can order it for your E63. Apart from the fact the 6.3 liter engine makes a better noise, the newer, more powerful and more efficient unit is the one to have if you are looking for a serious performance machine.
With the turbo engine the car can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and, when fitted with AMG performance pack, do 300 km/h.It also helps at the pumps as it has fuel consumption of under 10liter/100 km. Of course that doesn’t really matter because in the real world you will be struggling to do even half of what they claim!
More details, pictures, and pricing of the E63 Biturbo will be released soon.
