Mercedes-AMG E 63 leaked specs

Performance details of the upcoming W213 Mercedes-AMG E 63 has been leaked way ahead of its official debut. This comes following photographed documents that were uploaded to Germancarforum, showing the car’s spec sheet.

That’s not all because the same source includes a render done by X-Tomi Design, which certainly matches up to the various spyshots of the E 63 as it undergoes testing on multiple occasions. The AMG bumper with large intakes, ‘V8 biturbo’ badging, Multibeam LED headlamps and multi-spoke alloys certainly look the part at least.

Available in two versions – E 63 and E 63 S, the German super sedan will pack a 4.0 litre biturbo V8 engine (M177). On the base E 63, the mill churns out 571 PS and 750 Nm. Meanwhile, the E 63 S gets 612 PS and 850 Nm at its disposal.

Both engines are mated to a nine-speed MCT automatic transmission along with 4Matic all-wheel drive system. From a standstill, the E 63 will hit 100 km/h from a standstill in just 3.7 seconds, whereas the E 63 S accomplishes the feat in 3.5 seconds. These figures are an improvement over the outgoing W212 Mercedes-AMG E 63.

The current E 63’s 5.5 litre twin-turbo V8 (W157) produces 557 hp/720 Nm on the base model and 585 hp/800 Nm on the S-model, both fitted with the carmaker’s 4Matic all-wheel drive system. Century sprint times are 3.7 (E 63) and 3.6 seconds (E 63 S), respectively.

When launched, the E63 AMG will be offered with rear-wheel and 4Matic all-wheel drive versions, depending on markets. Following the introduction of the Sedan, other body styles will be added to the range, including an Estate, Coupe and Cabriolet.
