For those interested, here is a nice video on the history of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class (originally published on Mercedes-Benz.TV). Enjoy and happy holidays!
Press material for the new Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG Estate has just been released from Frankfurt (Oct 12, 2009).
Pole position for the new E 63 AMG Estate: the high-performance estate develops 386 kW/525 hp, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, offers a maximum luggage compartment capacity of 1950 liters – all with a relatively low fuel consumption of 12.8 litres per 100 km (combined, provisional figures). With these dream figures, the new E 63 AMG Estate adds up to an extraordinary combination of driving dynamics, high utility value and superb efficiency.
The top-of-the-line E-Class not only features its own distinctive styling but also the all-new AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension including an electronically controlled damping system and a new front axle. A ceramic composite high-performance braking system is available for the first time for the E 63 AMG Estate. The unrivaled combination of groundbreaking driver assistance systems raises the bar in terms of active and passive safety in this vehicle class.
