Mercedes-Benz have released details of the 2011 E63 AMG, which comes with a few revisions. One of them being the increase of power from the 6.2 litre V8 engine which now produces 11hp more, making it 525hp in total. Which is actually pretty small in the grand scheme of things.
Not that you’d be able to feel the power hike, but I’m sure the fuel efficiency increase of 12 percent will be easier on the wallet. This produces a fuel consumption figure of 12.6 litres for every 100km travelled which has been made possible with a braking recuperation system and the use of an AMG twin-wire arc spray coating process used on the cylinder walls of the engine.
The E63 AMG gets the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission also seen in the SL 63 AMG. Performance figures haven’t changed with the performance saloon propelling itself to 100km/h in just 4.5 seconds going on to reach an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h.
The exterior remains the same while the interior will see the use of Artico leather for the dashboard and door panels, whereas the centre console trim around the AMG Drive unit will be finished in black piano lacquer finish, all of which are now available as standard equipment. Currently available in Europe, the E63 AMG will go for 105,791 Euros while the station wagon will go for 108,409 Euros.
