We have become more than familiar with the new E-Class by now, but as usual, the flagship AMG is still hiding. Not anymore, as our spies have caught the hottly anticipated 2017 Mercedes-AMG E 63 on camera.

The Mercedes E 63 AMG is a car you can safely look forward to with the uttermost excitment. The current model is so bullishly rapid (the S version with all-wheel drive gets in 3.7 seconds to 100 km / h) that expectations for the new model are sky high.

Top E-Class is said to offer as much as 600 HP, courtesy of its new 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8. Mercedes’ new hot sedan will be the first model set to inherit AMG’s state-of-the-art V8 in its highest tune, trumping both the C 63 and the AMG GT S in the process.

Said to be lighter and faster than its predecessor, the all-new E 63 will also mark the debut of Mercedes’ high-tech nine-speed gearbox in the AMG line-up. The sporty arm’s engineers will, of course, re-tune the transmission’s settings in order to suit the AMG philosophy.

On the outside of this still heavily camouflaged prototype there is not much to see. We do not expect any big surprises here: the ‘normal’ E shares so many design cues with the C and S-class that we can already guess the Mercedes-AMG E 63 will also resemble its brothers, wide, gaping lower air-intake included.

Mercedes will pull the wraps off the new model sometimes in the first half of this year, so we will then know for sure.
