Performance & Handling
Handcrafted AMG® 5.5L biturbo V-8 engine
With reduced displacement, numerous innovations and twin turbochargers, the advanced 5.5-liter V-8 of the E63 AMG® outputs a thunderous 518 hp @ 5,250-5,750 rpm and 516 lb-ft of torque @ 1,750-5,000 rpm. While it bears the signature of the single technician who lovingly assembled it by hand, it's a high-tech powerhouse. Its twin turbochargers spin up to 185,000 rpm to dramatically boost low-end torque. High-pressure Direct Injection microscopically fine-tunes the fuel spray while rapid-multispark ignition fires up to four times in a millisecond. Its 32 valves are driven by dual overhead camshafts that can precisely vary their timing by up to 40 degrees. Along with substantially improved efficiency and emissions, plus the everyday smoothness for which AMG® engines are renowned, it also delivers 60 mph in a breathtaking 4.2 seconds.
7-speed AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® MCT transmission with ECO Start/Stop
The 7-speed AMG® SPEEDSHIFT® MCT transmission features innovative multi-clutch technology for instant, efficient response to any driving situation. A wet startup clutch eliminates the power losses of a traditional torque converter, improving both performance and fuel consumption. Four driving modes can be selected via the console-mounted AMG® DRIVE UNIT. "Controlled Efficiency" features a fuel-saving ECO Start/Stop function. "Sport" mode raises the shift points and reduces shift times by up to 30%. And both a "Sport+" mode and paddle-shifted "Manual" mode deliver lightning-quick 100-millisecond shifts, a feat made possible by partial suppression of the fuel and ignition during gear changes under full load. The different modes also reprofile the throttle response and the shift points. In any mode, a driver-activated Race Start function optimizes traction and startup revs for maximum launch control and acceleration, with optimized automatic shiftin.
AMG® DRIVE UNIT with E-SELECT
Perhaps the most enticing and intriguing set of controls in the E63, the AMG® DRIVE UNIT beckons from the center console. Its driver-oriented pushbutton controls enable the selection of individual settings for the 3-stage ESP®, the suspension setup and the AMG® drive modes. A rotary control selects the mode for the MCT transmission. The distinctive centerpiece comes in the shape of the AMG® E-SELECT selector lever embossed with the AMG® crest, allowing the driver to shift directly between R, N and D with a gentle nudge, with each command carried out electronically. A brief tap of the "P" button is sufficient to activate the parking lock.
Aluminum shift paddles
A pair of aluminum paddles strategically positioned behind the upper steering-wheel spokes allows you to manually upshift and downshift the 7-speed automatic transmission with just a flick of your fingers.
AMG® Adaptive Suspension
The AMG® Adaptive Suspension responds with equal skill to the demands of the racetrack, city streets, open highways and enticing back roads. Exceptional agility, quick response, reassuring reflexes and long-distance comfort come together in an extraordinary synthesis in the E63 AMG®. Exclusively developed steel spring-struts are used on the front axle, while the rear suspension features AMG®-specific air springs. The advantage of this innovative approach is that the front suspension ensures highly sensitive response to steering, tracking and cornering, while the adaptive rear air struts with an automatic leveling system maintain both the ride height and ideal balance of comfort and control as loads, conditions and driving styles vary. An advanced, electronically controlled damping system automatically instantly varies the suspension characteristics according to the driving situation, reducing body roll, pitch and dive while maximizing agility and smoothness. In addition, the driver is able to choose among three suspension modes (Comfort, Sport and Sport+) at the touch of a button.
AMG® body styling
Exclusive AMG®-design lower bodywork reveals the performance pedigree of the E63 AMG® with purposeful style. Large, functional mesh air intakes in the deep front apron are set off by linear LED Daytime Running Lamps and functional vertical side air outlets. Sharply flared side sills set off the wide wheels and wrap around into a chiseled rear apron, where a black diffuser panel frames the four trapezoidal exhaust tips. A subtle but substantial transformation also takes shape in its front fenders: Their slight increase in width accommodates the wider track of its specially developed front axle, while unique sculpting behind each front wheel arch embraces both the engine badges and the power they represent.
Luxurious, performance-focused cabin
Even as you first step inside the E63 AMG®, the attention to detail is evident. Brushed stainless-steel door sill inserts are embossed with the distinctive AMG® logo. Brushed aluminum pedals are dotted with rubber studs, to offer confident footwork during more aggressive driving, enduring comfort in long-distance touring, and high-performance style in any situation. The rich luxury of its supple leather upholstery offers refinement on par with the car's performance. It's fitted by hand to the deeply contoured sport front seats, as well as the rear seats. The seats, console, dash and door trim all feature impeccably detailed top-stitching, while lavishly soft DINAMICA covers the ceiling and pillars.
19-inch AMG® 10-spoke alloy wheels
Innovative flow-formed cast alloy wheels feature a new 10-spoke design, accentuated with Titanium Grey inlays. Fitted with high-performance tires, they come in a staggered-width configuration for enhanced grip during acceleration.
11-way air bag protection
An advanced system of 9 air bags offers 11-way occupant protection. Dual two-stage front air bags, front side-impact air bags, front pelvic air bags, a driver's knee air bag, and side curtain air bags for the first and second seating rows are all standard. Second-row side-impact air bags are optional.
