3.4 sec. That’s all it takes for this thing to get from a standstill to 100kmh. Just 3.4 seconds…that’s less time than it took you to read this sentence.
In conjunction with Mercedes-AMG 50 years anniversary and the last Formula 1 “F1NALE” race in Sepang, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has launched the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+, the most powerful E-Class of all time.
The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine generating up to 450 kW or 612 hp. This makes it the most powerful engine to have ever been installed in an E-Class, ever.
It combines striking dynamic design in pursuit of maximum Driving Performance. Its expressive exterior featuring a new radiator grille and coupé-style inset bonnet, 20-inch AMG cross-spoke forged wheels, powerdomes on the inboard hood and flared wings underlines its performance figures.
The versatile AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine in the E 63 S 4MATIC+ takes peak performance to a new level at 450 kW (612 hp). Maximum torque attains a new best value of 850Nm of torque.
Power is available over a broad engine speed range of 2500 to 4500 rpm and so provides a feeling of effortless grunt in every accelerator pedal position. As mentioned, a sprint from zero to 100 kmh takes only 3.4 seconds, and this acceleration only ends at the governed top-speed of 300 km/h with the AMG Driver’s package.
The AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine utilises well-proven twin turbocharging, with the two chargers not located outside on the cylinder banks, but rather between them in the V of the cylinders.
The advantages of the “hot inner V” are a compact engine design, an immediate response from the twin-scroll turbochargers and low exhaust gas emissions thanks to optimum air flow for the close-coupled catalytic converters.
So just how fast is the nearly RM1 million E63 S AMG? Watch this video from Car Wow as it goes up against its equally monstrous sibling the C63 S AMG!
