Mercedes-AMG is set to launch the Mercedes E 43 4MATIC, which is probably the most powerful executive saloon variant, in September. It features a 3.0-liter six-cylinder V6 biturbo engine and two new turbochargers.
The core is capable of delivering up to 401 hp or 295 kW. It is equipped with the standard-specification AMG Performance 4MATIC four-wheel drive and a rear-biased torque distribution with a 31:69 percent front-to-rear ratio, ensuring optimum traction with high agility.
Mercedes E 43 4MATIC comes with a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with shorter shift times, the retuned sports suspension based on the AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension, and a more direct steering ratio.
These three characteristics contribute to the signature AMG Driving Performance. With two bigger turbochargers and upgraded software applications, Mercedes-AMG has enhanced the power output to 401 hp or 295 kW by 34 hp or 25 kW.
Meanwhile, the 520 Nm torque is available at 2,500 rpm. The Mercedes E 43 4MATIC offers excellent delivery, accelerating from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. It also boasts a top speed of 250 km/h.
To further underscore the sporty characteristics of the Mercedes E 43 4MATIC, customers can also avail of a number of optional features. These include AMG seats with improved lateral support in nappa leather upholstery and 20-inch bichromatic wheels.
The 2017 Mercedes-AMG E 43 4MATIC will have its global debut at the upcoming 2016 New York International Auto Show this month.
