New E63 and E63 S Performance

Marking the most significant redesign between generations, the new Mercedes-Benz E63 and E63 S are fit with new mechanical systems, new exterior features and paired with the luxurious convenience the brand is known for. The V8 biturbo engine is coupled with a SPEEDSHIFT MCT nine-speed sport transmission with AMG dynamic select drive modes and the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system.

AMG Dynamic Select Drive Modes:

Comfort – Well balanced drive with comfort-oriented suspension and fuel-efficient gear shift configurations. Utilizes AMG Cylinder Management and ECO Start/Stop.

Sport – High vehicle dynamics enabled by faster shift times and double-clutch downshifts.

Sport Plus – Also for increased dynamics, the mode features increased idle speeds and faster acceleration.

Individual – Driver can manually shift using the shift paddles on the steering wheel.

RACE (E63S Only) – Intended for closed race circuits. Optimal engine speed is set by on-board electronics. Reaches an acceleration from 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds.

AMG Cylinder Management System

The most powerful engine to ever be installed in an e-class is also the most efficient due to the cylinder deactivation system. AMG Cylinder Management system is an E-Class first that aims to reduce fuel consumption and emissions levels by deactivating the intake and exhaust valves for cylinders two, three, five and eight in the partial-load range. When “comfort” mode is selected on the transmission, cylinder deactivation occurs between 1,000 and 3.250 RPM.

New E-Class Design for Superior Aerodynamics and Style

New performance parts for the E63 and E63 S also require new style to both distinguish their high performance and improve it. For the new E-Class executive sedans, the hood has been replaced with an inset coupe-style hood that improves aerodynamic efficiency as does the increased size of the front end.

Larger wheels with a wider track width are now possible on the E63 and E63 S due to a .67-inch increase in the width of the front end. Also added to the front end of each is a new radiator grille with twin louvers in silver chrome and vertical black struts accented by the signature AMG lettering. Highlighting the exclusive performance of the E-Class sedans are the arrow shaped wing signets in silver chrome with three-dimensional V8 BITURBO 4MATIC+ lettering accented by 19-inch, 10-Spoke light-alloy wheels in titanium gray.
