Mercedes has finally revealed the range-topping variant of the E-Class which will make an appearance at the Detroit Motor Show next week. The E63 AMG will be offered in sedan and estate variants with the familiar V8 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine that for the facelifted model has been significantly revised. In its standard form, the mill puts out 557 HP and 720 Nm (531 lb-ft) of torque, making it 32 HP and 20 Nm (15 lb-ft) more powerful than the outgoing variant. A novelty for the E63 AMG is the launch of an S Model which comes exclusively with 4MATIC and has the engine retuned to generate 577 HP and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque.
The stock model can complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) run in 4.2 seconds, while the versions equipped with the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system can hit that speed in just 3.7 seconds (3.8 seconds for the estate). The range-topping S Model sedan does it in 3.6 seconds, while the wagon is 0.1 seconds slower. All variants come with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
RWD E63 AMG is scheduled to go on sale in April, while the 4MATIC and S-Model cars will see the light of day in June.
