Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Sports Saloon


Recommended Posts

Mercedes-Benz has shared the first official image of the refreshed for the 2013 model year E63 AMG salsoon, seen here riding along the rest of the updated E-Class range that includes the regular 4-door, Estate, Coupe and Convertible body styles.

The AMG version of the series sports the same cosmetic updates to the body such as the elimination of the "Pontoon" style rear fenders and the twin unit headlamps adding a new body kit that's highlighted by a redesigned front bumper featuring huge air vents from side to side.

A big change for the 2013 E63 AMG is the option of Mercedes' 4MATIC all-wheel drive configuration, which will be available alongside the standard rear-wheel model. Power will continue to come from a 5.5-litre twin turbo V8, though, we still don't know if the Germans will make any improvements to the engine's output.

The E63 AMG's twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V8 has been fettled with, increasing its boost pressure from 0.9 to 1.0 bar. As a result, it now it puts out 550HP (557PS) and 531 lb-ft (720 Nm) of torque, an increase of 32HP and 15 lb-ft (20 Nm) over the outgoing model.

Since the standard E 63 AMG, which is available in saloon and estate forms, now has the same ponies as the previous car's optional AMG performance pack, they’ve also added the S-Model option that’s available with all-wheel drive and increases power to 577HP and torque to 590 lb-ft (800 Nm).

The standard model accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds, a figure that drops to 3.7 seconds (3.8 for the estate) in 4MATIC versions. The S-Model is a tenth of a second quicker, completing the sprint in 3.6 seconds for the saloon and 3.7 seconds for the estate, while all models have their top speed electronically limited at 250 km/h (155 mph).

The optional 4MATIC all-wheel drive features a multi-disk clutch and a transfer case that’s integrated in the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed transmission. It distributes torque at a 33/67 front/rear ratio and the three-stage ESP has been tuned specifically for this model: in “Sport Handling” mode, the Torque Vectoring Brake system will brake individual wheels as needed when cornering to avoid understeer.

All E 63 AMG versions are equipped with the AMG RIDE CONTROL electronically controlled adaptive suspension, which offers three modes (Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus) as standard. The S-Model has a differential lock in the rear axle for better traction and cornering performance, especially at the track.

Braking is taken care thanks to 360 mm perforated and ventilated discs all around with six- and four-piston calipers front and rear respectively that sport a silver finish in the standard model and red in the S-Model.

If that doesn’t seem enough, AMG also offers even larger 402 mm ceramic discs, which, apart from being more durable, are also 40 percent lighter than the steel brakes thus reducing unsprung weight.


Some more 'photoshops' for PeterS & Scotty :grin:

The combined fuel consumption for the saloon is 28.5 mpg UK, with CO2 emissions of 232 g/km, with the Estate achieving 28.3 combined mpg UK, with CO2 emissions of 234 g/km, which is the same as the standard E 63 AMG Estate.
