The next generation E 63 S 4Matic+

Mercedes-AMG launches new E-Class model

DUBAI, May 10, 2017

Mercedes-AMG is redefining the performance sedan by turning its most intelligent executive sedan into the most powerful E-Class in the form of the next generation E 63 S 4Matic+. It will be launched in the GCC this month.

The company is also setting new benchmarks in this market segment with its innovative technologies. Its intelligent drive strategy raises the limits of the performance sedan’s vehicle dynamics to a new level, said a statement from Mercedes-AMG.

Torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which until now was strongly rear-biased, is fully variable for the first time. This ensures optimum traction right up to the physical limit, regardless of road conditions, it said.

The exterior design features a new radiator grille and coupé-style inset bonnet. As a result, the next generation of the E 63 S 4Matic+ offers a completely new level of sportiness and comfort, it added.

One special detail is the arrow-shaped wing signet in silver chrome bearing three-dimensional “V8 Biturbo 4matic+” lettering – an eye-catching way to highlight the drive system. The E 63 S 4Matic+ runs on tyres of sizes 265/35 ZR 20 (front) and 295/30 ZR 20 (rear) mounted on 9.5 J x 20 (front) and 10 J x 20 (rear) 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels, painted matte titanium grey with a high-sheen finish.

A new design of 20-inch cross-spoke forged wheel, which looks as though it is centrally locked, is available as an option.

The versatile AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine in the E 63 S 4Matic+ takes peak performance to a new level at 450 kW (612 hp). Maximum torque attains a new top value of 850 Nm.

It is available over a broad engine speed range of 2500 to 4500 rpm and so provides a feeling of effortless superiority in every accelerator pedal position. A sprint from zero to 100 km/h is absolved in 3.4 seconds, and this dynamic acceleration only ends at the governed top speed of 250 km/h (with AMG Driver's package: 300 km/h).

The advanced AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine utilises well-proven twin turbocharging, with the two chargers not located outside on the cylinder banks, but rather between them in the V of the cylinders.

Lennart Mueller-Teut, head of marketing and communications, Mercedes-Benz Cars Middle East, said: “The new model represents the biggest step forward we've ever taken from one generation to the next.”

“The E-Class is one of our highest selling models of all time and now we have turned the most intelligent executive sedan into the most powerful E-Class of all time. Stepping inside the E 63 S 4MATIC+ is a treat,” he said.

“The standard E-Class cabin is a thing of beauty, and the AMG treatment has given it extra power, enhanced performance capabilities and added appeal,” he added.

The E 63 S 4Matic+ will be available in the GCC from this month with pricing starting from $136,900, it stated – TradeArabia News Service
