Mercedes is introducing the first AMG lettering on the current generation E-Class. The popular saloon, recently launched in European showrooms, now features a new version, called E43 AMG, set to be officially introduced to the public during this year New York Auto Show. 

The E43 4Matic with the 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine on board will represent the most powerful variant of the executive saloon when it is introduced in September 2016.

With two new turbochargers and corresponding software applications, the supercharged six-cylinder engine delivers an output of 401 hp. The standard-specification AMG Performance 4Matic four-wheel drive offers rear-biased torque distribution with a front-to-rear ratio of 31:69 percent. The peak torque of 520 Nm is available right from a low engine speed of 2500 rpm. 

The 9G-Tronic automatic transmission with shorter shift times, the retuned sports suspension based on the AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension and the more direct steering ratio are also present.

The E43 4Matic reaches a speed of 100 km/h from a standing start in 4.6 seconds, while its top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.

The optionally available features also emphasize the sporty character of the E43 AMG. These range from AMG seats with increased lateral support through Nappa leather upholstery to 20-inch bichromatic wheels.
