Like all AMGs the true power of this vehicle lies under its hood. The 5.5 litre V8 has been updated and now produces 557 BHP (up from 518 BHP). This new found power propels the E63 from 0-100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds! For the first time, Mercedes also brings the E63 with their 4MATIC all wheel drive system. This provides immense traction and brings the 0-100 km/h time down to an amazing 3.7 seconds. If that’s still not fast enough for you, go for the S version. With an extra 28 BHP, this one flashes from 0-100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds!
These updates make it a strong contender to the mighty BMW M5, and perhaps even faster in a straight line. But despite being so similar on paper, the M5 and the E63 AMG are two completely different cars.
The E63 will be launched in India some time after its global launch, and the prices have not been revealed as yet. I am surely looking forward to a road test once the car is launched in India, so watch this space!
