Mercedes officially unveiled its 2014 E63 AMG facelift, ahead of its public unveiling, scheduled to take place during this year Detroit Motor Show.
 
The new E 63 AMG presents a more powerful character and a more dynamic appearance than all its predecessors: the new AMG design philosophy is immediately apparent at first glance, with the new "twin blade" radiator grille and the new "A-wing" in the AMG front apron defining the exclusive look.
 
As previously, the top AMG model is available as a Saloon and Estate. Both models will be powered by a two different version of the current V8 engine. One is developed for the standard E62 AMG and one for the S-Model variant.
 
On the new S-Model the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine generates a maximum output of 430 kW (585 hp) and maximum torque of 800 Newton metres – representing an increase of 20 kW (28 hp) over the AMG Performance package which was previously available as an option. At 410 kW (557 hp) and 720 Newton metres, the basic model also boasts an increase of 24 kW (32 hp) and 20 Newton metres over its predecessor.
 
Acceleration to 100 km/h from a standing start in 3.6 seconds provides the E 63 AMG S-Model with a comfortable lead over the entire competition; the top speed stands at 250 km/h (electronically limited).
 
In addition to the increase in output, this is also attributable in no small part to the performance-oriented AMG 4MATIC all-wheel drive with a power distribution ratio of 33 to 67 percent (front/rear axle). Perfect traction during acceleration effectively avoids slip-induced losses.
The rear-biased power distribution provides for signature AMG high driving dynamics and superlative driving enjoyment.
 
The 3-stage ESP has been tailored specifically to the permanent all-wheel drive system.
The market launch of the new E 63 AMG with rear-wheel drive will begin in April 2013, with the all-wheel-drive E 63 AMG and the E 63 AMG S-Model following in June.
