All-new 2018 Mercedes-AMG E 63 prices announced. The most powerful E-Class ever can now be yours with order books already opened around the world and first deliveries expected this Spring.
Three variants will be available: Mercedes-AMG E 63 4MATIC+ priced from 109,837 euros, Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ costing 121,618 euros and Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ “Edition 1” starting at 136,910 euros (in Germany, incl. 19% VAT).
Available for around a year after the market launch, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ “Edition 1” is an exclusive and distinctive offering. The special edition is available in designo selenite grey magno paint finish or optionally in designo night black magno. The dynamic stripes across the side sill panels set off the long side view to optimum effect. Added to this are new AMG 20‑inch forged wheels in matt black with high-gloss polished rim flange and the AMG Night package.
AMG Performance seats in black nappa leather with yellow topstitching create a sporty ambience in the interior. Also colour-coordinated are the AMG Performance sports steering wheel, the upper part of the dashboard, the door panels, centre console, AMG floor mats and analogue clock featuring an IWC design. Carbon-fibre trim elements further enhance the exciting juxtaposition of colours and materials.
The versatile AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine in the E 63 S 4MATIC+ takes peak performance to a new level at 450 kW (612 hp) in Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ guise or 420 kW (571 hp) and has 750 Nm for the ‘ base’Mercedes-AMG E 63 4MATIC+. This makes it the most powerful engine to have ever been installed in an E-Class. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) nine-speed sports transmission is combined with a wet start-off clutch for the first time. This enabled more agile response times to be achieved. The S‑Model completes the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, whilst the E 63 4MATIC+ takes 3.5 seconds.
The advanced AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine utilises well-proven twin turbocharging, with the two chargers not located outside on the cylinder banks, but rather between them in the V of the cylinders. The advantages of the “hot inner V” are a compact engine design, an immediate response from the twin-scroll turbochargers and low exhaust gas emissions thanks to optimum air flow for the close-coupled catalytic converters.
For maximum efficiency, Mercedes-AMG has equipped the V8 engine with the AMG Cylinder Management cylinder deactivation system. In the partial-load range cylinders two, three, five and eight are deactivated, which crucially lowers the fuel consumption. With combined fuel consumption of 8.9 litres and CO2 emissions of 203 grams per kilometre (combined), the E 63 4MATIC+ and E 63 S 4MATIC+ set a new best by comparison with their competitors.
The four different AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs “Comfort”, “Sport”, “Sport Plus” and “Individual” allow drivers to extensively influence the characteristics of their E 63 4MATIC+. Key parameters are modified such as the response of the engine, transmission, suspension, steering, ESP® and all-wheel drive system. Independently of the DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs, the driver has the option of pressing the “M” button to switch directly to manual mode, in which gearshifts are executed exclusively using the shift paddles on the steering wheel. The suspension set-ups can also be selected if desired.
Both E 63 models are exclusively available with the innovative AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system. This newly engineered, intelligent system brings together the advantages of various drive configurations. Torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which is fully variable for the first time, ensures optimum traction right up to the physical limit. The driver is also able to rely on high driving stability and handling safety under all conditions, whether the roadway be dry, wet or snow-covered. The transition from rear-wheel to all-wheel drive and back again is seamless, because intelligent control is integrated into the vehicle system architecture as a whole.
It is still possible to drift thanks to fully variable torque distribution. This is where drift mode, part of the standard specification for the E 63 S 4 MATIC+, comes into its own. This can be activated in the “Race” drive program using the shift paddles, provided that ESP® is deactivated and the transmission is in manual mode. When drift mode is activated, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ becomes a purely rear-wheel drive vehicle. Drift mode remains engaged until the driver deactivates it again.
