Mercedes-Benz unveiled the brand new 2014 E63 AMG saloon and estate models, which received a bold new look as well as increased output. Set to make their debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show along with the 2014 E-Class and the new 2014 E-Class Cabriolet and Coupe.
As you can see from the photos, the new cars received a new set of headlamps with unique grille and bumper as well as huge air ducts and a central splitter that promises to improve airflow underneath the car.
The exterior mirrors were also upgraded and received a new carbon fiber look, while the side sills feature a two tone treatment. The rear end received a new set of tail lamps, new bumpers and a revised air diffuse that houses the quad trapezoidal shaped tail pipes.
Under the hood, we find the twin-turbocharged 5.5-liter V8 engine delivering 557 hp and 720 Nm of torque. The most interesting addition in the E63 AMG lineup is the new S-Model, which delivers 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque and features a newly developed performance-oriented AMG 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. This model, available in both estate and saloon versions, is capable to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.6 seconds (3.7 seconds for the estate).
The “standard” E63 AMG model sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds. All the models have a top speed limited to 155 mph or 250 km/h. The models use the seven-speed AMG Speedshift MCT automatic gearbox. This gearbox offers four different driving modes: C (Controlled Efficiency, S (Sport), S plus (Sport plus) and M (Manual).
