Mercedes-Benz has officially announced details of the new W212’s AMG Sports Package, sort of a mid-way between a regular E and an E AMG, much like BMW’s M Sport packages. The W212’s AMG bodykit includes an AMG bumper with large cooling air intakes, AMG side skirts and an AMG rear bumper.

The rear exhaust tailpipes are of a twin oval non-integrated design for the inline-4 petrol models, and a single oval non-integrated design for the inline-4 diesels. The 6 cylinder and 8 cylinder cars feature twin rectangular tailpipes that are neatly integrated into the AMG rear bumper.
Other bits of the AMG package include a new DIRECT CONTROL suspension that is lowered by 15mm, 18 inch AMG light alloy wheels wrapped with 245/40R18 tyres at the front and 265/35R18 tyres at the rear, and cross-drilled brake discs with silver-painted calipers featuring the Mercedes-Benz Logo.
Interior additions include sports seats for the front passengers done up with a material consisting of DINAMICA microfiber and ARTICO man-made leather, floor mats with AMG lettering, stainless steel sports pedals with ruibber studs, a black roof lining, a Nappa leather shifter, and an AMG sports steering wheel. The automatic transmissions in AMG cars also feature an additional “M” mode in addition to the C and S modes, which invokes a much quicker but harsher shift speed. The steering wheel also features paddle shifts.
The cost? Depending on what model of W212 you’re having, the AMG sports package costs between 2915 eros and 4046 euros including 19 % VAT. Look after the jump for a high-resolution gallery.
