0 – 60mph in 3 seconds.
No. It doesn’t have wings. And no, it’s not a supercar. Even though its performance puts many supercars to shame.
It’s the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG.
A 603hp, bi-turbo V-8 powered luxury saloon car. Nothing can get better than that. Power, agility, speed, and comfort all in one package. Few can beat the combination of practicality when needed and power when wanted.
This superb car from Mercedes Benz’s performance division is a true masterpiece. And like the piece of art that it is, well worth the hefty price tag (upwards of $100 000).
Mercedes E63 AMG: Super Model With Curves In All The Right Places
When it comes to looks, the E63 is a stunner. With voluptuous curves and sexy headlamps, few can resist its allure. Decked in a kit only the ingenious designers at AMG can sculpt, the Mercedes E 63 AMG is an attention grabber. Every line has been perfectly chiseled to solve the dual purpose of aesthetic beauty and aerodynamic efficiency.
The revamped grille gives this Mercedes a menacing, yet inviting look. Kind of like a Doberman, beautiful yet dangerous. While its stately stance gives it an aura of elegance the grille gives it an authoritative demeanor.
E 63 AMG Engine: Ingenuity Personified
Powered by a handcrafted (yes, handcrafted) 4.0 Liter V-8 bi-turbo engine, this “supermodel” can hold its own against any contender. If they dare try.
The basic model delivers 565 horsepower with 553 lb-ft of torque, taking it to a top speed of 155 miles per hour. Electronically limited of course. As for the S-version, the output is rated at an amazing 603 horsepower, 627 lb-ft torque and reaches an electronically capped top speed of 186 mph.
The ingenious part? The clever chaps at Mercedes’ performance division have increased the efficiency of this V-8 engine with a new cylinder-deactivation system. This system shuts off cylinders 2, 3, 5, and 8 at low-to-medium loads, turning the mighty V-8 into a more docile V-4. The result is a more efficient engine with less noise and vibrations.
Now that’s ingenuity.
As for the transmission, the latest model has a nine-speed gearbox that comes as a standard feature. The increased torque finds its way onto the tarmac via an all new all-wheel drive system Mercedes AMG have dubbed 4MATIC+.
Inner Beauty to Match Outer Brawn
As an executive sedan, the Mercedes E 63 AMG ticks every box an executive could wish for. A luxurious interior for that relaxing drive to a meeting. The interior boasts of comfortable plush leather, eye-catching carbon fiber and metal finishings that are enhanced by the mood lighting. The heated/ventilated seats with massage function
The dashboard? If you dare call it that, it is a dual screen that merges into one, giving the car a futuristic look. As for the steering wheel, it definitely is from the future. With touch-sensitive buttons that allow the driver to control the infotainment system without removing their hands from the steering wheel, it takes safety to a whole new level.
Every dial, knob, stitch, and pixel (on the dual screen) was well thought out and expertly crafted, giving the interior a warm and inviting atmosphere.
The Mercedes E63 AMG truly has the inner beauty to match its outer brawn. What more can you ask for?
How Does the E63 Handle?
The true test of an excellent car is the way it handles on the road. The E63 AMG does not disappoint. Superb traction courtesy of the 4MATIC+ system, triple chamber air suspension with variable dampers give the E63 a smooth ride no matter the terrain it’s on.
With 10 inch wide tires at the rear, 9.5 inches in front, the E63 grips the road so tight it feels like it might move the earth out of its axis. At no expense to your safety and comfort. Few cars this size come close to achieving the kind of stability this mechanical marvel displays.
In Favor of the E63
- 603 hp. Who wouldn’t want that at their disposal?
- Superb handling. Especially for a car of its size.
- Beautiful interior.

It’s difficult to find anything to complain about in a car like the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG. Precision built for performance, it lives up to its claims.
