The new Mercedes E63 AMG has been given a major high performance boost in the shape of the top-of-the-range E63 AMG S Model to become the most powerful vehicle in the E-Class range and the fastest E-Class ever offered in the UK.
With 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque, the Mercedes E63 AMG will reach 62mph in just 4.1 seconds for the saloon and 4.2 seconds for the estate. That’s slightly faster than the standard model.
To help control the sports car there is a rear axle limited-slip differential lock fitted as standard.
Fuel consumption for the new Mercedes E63 AMG Saloon is 28.5 mpg, with emissions of 232 g/km of CO2, and the Estate achieves 28.3 combined mpg, with CO2 emissions of 234 g/km – the same as the standard E63 AMG Estate.
2013 Mercedes E63 AMG gets a new exterior
The enhanced exterior of the 2013 Mercedes E63 AMG S Model features exclusive design elements, including a high-gloss black front apron with silver-shadow splitter, side sill panels and rear trim strip with silver-shadow inserts, an AMG spoiler in body colour, 19 inch AMG alloy wheels painted in Titanium matt grey, red brake calipers, and ‘S’ labelling on the boot lid.
Inside, the unique interior includes black nappa leather upholstery with grey contrast stitching, silver seat belts, an AMG emblem in the headrests, an electric rear roller blind for the Saloon, AMG door sills with white LED illumination, and an AMG instrument cluster with red applications and S Model badges.
Buy or lease the New Mercedes E63 AMG
Some of the paint options cost extra and the Mercedes E63 AMG S Model Saloon is priced from £83,740 OTR and the Estate from £85,530 OTR, with both available from June 2013.
There’s no doubt that the Mercedes E63 AMG is a cracking car in either the saloon or estate version but it’s probably going to cost a lot less to own if the owner took up a leasing option.
