the most powerful E-Class from the Mercedes stable
Mercedes has introduced the new top-of-the range S Model to the new E 63 AMG range. The E 63 AMG S Model enters production in June 2013, and will cost £83,740 for the saloon model and the Estate costs from £85,530.
The E 63 AMG S Model is powered by an AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine producing 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque, making it the most powerful E-Class from the Mercedes stable. It can accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.1 seconds in the Saloon guise and 4.2 seconds as an Estate. Compared to the standard E 63 AMG there is 28 hp more and an increase of 80 Nm and it shaves 0.1 seconds off the 0-62 mph time.
The combined fuel consumption for the E 63 AMG S Model Saloon is 28.5 mpg, with emissions of 232 g/km of CO2, and the Estate achieves 28.3 combined mpg, with CO2 emissions of 234 g/km which matches the standard E 63 AMG Estate.
The E 63 AMG S Model’s exterior features bespoke design elements, including a high-gloss black front apron with silver-shadow splitter, side sill panels and rear trim strip with silver-shadow inserts, an AMG spoiler in body colour, 19 inch AMG alloy wheels painted in Titanium matt grey, red brake calipers, and ‘S’ labelling on the boot lid.
On the inside there is black nappa leather upholstery with grey contrast stitching, silver seat belts, an AMG emblem in the headrests, an electric rear roller blind for the Saloon, AMG door sills with white LED illumination, and an AMG instrument cluster with red applications and S Model badging.
Coachwork can be finished in a choice of seven standard metallic paints and one non-metallic paint in Polar White for the S Model are complimented by two additional metallic paints, Diamond White and Hyacinth Red (£480), two designo metallic paints, Mocha Black and Graphite (£1,125) and two designo Magno matt paints, Allanite Grey and Cashmere White (£2,775).Published 13 May 2013
