Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Overview

The E63's main motivation comes from the familiar bark of the hand-built 6.2-liter V8, now producing 518 hp at 6800 rpm and 465 ft-lbs of torque at 5200 rpm. This outguns both the current BMW M5 (500 hp) and Audi S6 (435 hp) for German bragging rights, although the Cadillac CTS-V's 556 hp is still top-dog in this category. Since manual transmissions are anathema to the three-pointed star, the company's tweaked seven-speed automatic transmission first seen in the SL63 AMG makes an appearance. It features such mercedes e-class accessories as a wet clutch rather than a traditional torque converter, which allows the monster motor's power to shine. Flatten your right foot on the accelerator and the E63 AMG jumps from 0-60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. Keep it there, and it'll eventually bump into its electronic speed limiter at 155mph in no time.
