It is not the achievements of the past that wrought the creation of Mercedes-AMG E 63 S, but the refusal of the AMG engineering team to accept that they had reached a limit. Enter something that is every bit as extravagant as the E 63, but that has been tweaked to allow the car — and its driver — to reach their full potential. After all, excellence is earned in inches

THE BUSINESS END OF AMG
When AMG developed the E 63 S, they poured every inch of their race car expertise into creating a vehicle that wears its power like a fine tailored suit. A suit that exists only to veil the unbridled ferocity it can unleash on the track.
BELT UP AND BUTTON DOWN
Trace your eye along the curves of the car and you’ll soon see the twin air intakes that dominate it’s stately facade – far from superfluous, they ensure that the Mercedes-AMG keeps composure even at speeds which exceed that of its predecessor. To the casual onlooker, every piece from the powerdomes to the wing flares seem meticulously arranged to create a deliberate display of speed supremacy — little do they realise it is no empty threat.
IN EVERY INCH, EXCELLENCE
The same dignified curves that define the profile of the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S follow through to the interior, where they take on different persona entirely. The austere outer gives way to a cockpit dominated by a large digital screen dashboard, tucked neatly behind the performance steering wheel. AMG emblems adorn the unmistakably sporty head restraints which perch on deep seats, designed to grip you like a glove.
ITS TRUE COLOURS, REVEALED ON THE TRACK
All of this is of course is a preamble to the car’s true agenda. Hidden carefully behind its dapper hood is a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine — the most powerful to ever be installed in an E-Class — which when combined with the fully variable all-wheel drive system, creates a masterful machine, as dynamic as it is fast. As with all greats, the full potential of the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S can only be explored on the race track, where the electronically controlled rear-axle differential lock allows you to run circles around any contender.
