The New 2017 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG sees Mercedes-AMG introducing a number of new developments that redefine the performance saloon with innovative powertrain engineering and maximum performance are combined with distinctive design, exclusive equipment and the latest infotainment features for comprehensive, connected multimedia applications.
2017 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Interior. The interior reinforces the consistently dynamic bias with numerous specially designed details. Ideal for a sporty driving style, the performance sports steering wheel in black leather features a flattened bottom section, Touch Control and electroplated shift paddles, as well as a steering wheel bezel with the AMG logo. The driver and front passenger enjoy a secure position in the front sports seats even when driving at speed, thanks to the improved lateral support. There is a distinctive seat upholstery layout in black nappa leather/DINAMICA microfibre, nut brown nappa leather or macchiato nappa leather. The door centre panels match the seat design. AMG Performance seats with integral head restraints can be ordered as an option. Trapezium-grain aluminium trim elements highlight the sporty aspirations.
In the E63 S 4MATIC+ the interior has been refined further. Highlights include a nappa leather covering for the instrument panel and beltlines, the sports steering wheel with crystal grey 12 o’clock marking and contrasting topstitching, AMG crest in the front head restraints, crystal grey seat piping, IWC-designed analogue clock and seat belts in crystal grey.
The AMG instrument cluster places all the important information in the driver’s field of vision. Dials in a chequered-flag look and the distinctive typography lend the large, clearly legible displays an especially sporty touch. The vivid widescreen multifunction display with two monitors is part of the standard equipment for the E63 S 4MATIC+ and is available as an option for the E63 4MATIC+. Customers with a passion for motorsport will be pleased to note the RACETIMER for recording lap times on closed-off tracks.
2017 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Exterior. Every detail of the exterior and interior is designed to enable AMG Driving Performance to be experienced at first hand. The expressive exterior design is all about sinuous edges and defined muscles. With a completely distinctive design forward of the A-pillar, the sporty front also demonstrates the effort that Mercedes?AMG has put into the styling: For the first time on an AMG saloon, the bonnet is inset between the wings and bumper like on a coupé, thus exhibiting an entirely new, more dynamic approach to the sculpting.
The new radiator grille with twin louvres in silver chrome, vertical black struts and “AMG” lettering likewise emphasises the distinctive look. A wide front apron inspired by the design of a jet wing, with flics in black and a large front splitter, impressively epitomises the power of the new models. It also showcases the sophisticated cooling technology – a typical feature from motorsport and another visual reference to the powerful engine. The two louvres in the outer cooling air intakes also help in this regard, their targeted wing profile directing air to the wheel arch coolers.
2017 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Engines and Transmission. The versatile AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine in the E63 S 4MATIC+ takes peak performance to a new level at 450 kW (612 hp). Maximum torque attains a new best value of 850 Nm. It is available over a broad engine speed range of 2500 to 4500 rpm and so provides a feeling of effortless superiority in every accelerator pedal position. A sprint from zero to 100 km/h is absolved in 3.4 seconds, and this dynamic acceleration only ends at the governed top speed of 250 km/h (with AMG Driver’s package: 300 km/h). The E63 4MATIC+ is rated at 420 kW (571 hp) and has 750 Nm of torque. This variant accelerates to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.
Two twin-scroll turbochargers are deployed for the first time to boost performance and improve responsiveness further. The housing is divided into two parallel flow passages. Combined with two separate exhaust ducts in the exhaust manifold, this makes it possible to control the exhaust gases on the turbine wheel separately. The exhaust gas from the first and fourth cylinders of the cylinder bank is fed into one duct and exhaust gas from the second and third cylinders to the other duct.
