E63 AMG Mercedes-Benz at the 2009 New York Auto Show

A little Mercedes-Benz press material for the New York auto show, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG – the high-performance E-Class:

Just a short time after the world premiere of the E-Class, the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz Cars presents the new E63 AMG. The dynamic sports sedan is perfect for everyday use and delivers impressive performance, exhilarating handling and technology transferred from the SL63 AMG high-performance roadster. The E63 AMG is distinguished from the standard Mercedes-Benz E-Class by its all-new AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with electronically controlled damping and a new front axle, as well as distinctive AMG exterior and interior design. Thanks to the application of efficiency improvements, Mercedes-AMG has also achieved a reduction in fuel consumption of almost twelve percent on the new E63 AMG. With its unique combination of pioneering driver assistance systems, the E63 AMG further expands its leading position in the field of safety.

Generating 518 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, the AMG 6.3 liter V8 engine in the new E63 AMG offers the same exceptional output as the SL63 AMG. The high-performance roadster also transfers its AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission. The gearbox dispenses with the usual torque converter and uses instead a compact, wet start-up clutch. The resulting direct connection to the driveline, combined with the four individual driving programs and the rev-matching and RACE START functions, deliver an exceptionally emotional and highly dynamic driving experience.

The powertrain package is unique in this segment and places the focus firmly on sporty performance. The E63 AMG sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds and reaches an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. The high-revving naturally aspirated engine with a displacement of 6,208 cc boasts impressive throttle response and outstanding pulling power.

Despite the increase in power output of 11 hp compared with its predecessor, the fuel consumption of the new E63 AMG has been reduced considerably. The fuel economy of the new E63 AMG is almost 12 percent better than before and marks a best-in-class among sports sedans with more than 500 hp. The new AMG V8 sound provides a thrilling soundtrack, while its smooth running characteristics make for hallmark Mercedes long-distance comfort. An all-new water cooling system guarantees maximum stability even under the highest levels of dynamic load on the racetrack.
