Next-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Cabrio will get AMG versions

Article by Christian A., on May 24, 2013

In a recent interview with PistonHeads, Mercedes-Benz product manager Gerd Junginger admitted that it was a mistake not to build an AMG version of the E-Class Coupe and Convertible. According to Junginger, this decision was made seven years ago when AMG has a different strategy. Now, Mercedes-Benz offers an AMG version in almost all the range.

Mercedes-Benz has no rival for the Audi RS5 and the upcoming Bmw M4. The current E-Class Coupe is the perfect car to be an AMG, according to Junginger as it almost looks like an AMG version as it is now. Moreover, Junginger also said that it was too late to change the decision but next time, Mercedes-Benz will not make same mistake.

Thank God! Still, if you want a V8-powered coupe, you should choose the recently launched C63 AMG Edition 507. This model uses the 6.3-liter V8 engine delivering 507 hp, 50 hp more than the standard C63 AMG. Using this engine the vehicle sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.2 seconds and has a top speed electronically limited at 174 mph or 280 km/h. [source: PistonHeads]
