Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ Sedan
Porsche 944 Turbo
Mercedes-Benz C Class
For over five generations the Mercedes-AMG E-Class has been a standard-bearer within the executive car market. Born in the 1950s, the E-Class has consistently garnered the attention of critics and connoisseurs and set the pace for competitors. But as with all things Mercedes-AMG, it’s designers are never satisfied, never settled, and never will concede they’ve built the best version of its class.
The iconic luxury sedan has an ever so subtle update for the latest of its generation. Its facelift includes, “a restyled front section that features a striking flap in high-gloss black that extends across the entire front apron, and continues into the outer edge of the jet-wing, rounding off outwards towards the sides.” As standard, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ sedan catches the attention and envy of drivers with its, “aerodynamically optimized 20-inch 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels.” Plus its “Hey Mercedes!” smart technology welcomes drivers to the latest in responsive artificial intelligence.
But at its core is still the automobile that Mercedes-AMG drivers have come to love and cherish. Managed by the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-Speed transmission, specially crafted to control and complement the premier sedan in its class. The V8 biturbo engine promises 603 horsepower at 5,750-6,500 rpm, powering the E 63 S 4MATIC+ sedan from 0-100 kilometres-an-hour in just 3.5 seconds and reaching speeds of 300 kilometres-an-hour. In fact, the German automotive giant boasts, “With a handcrafted 603-hp and variable-torque AMG Performance 4MATIC+, the E 63 S Sedan is among the quickest in the Mercedes-AMG family. It’s also one of the most rewarding and luxurious sedans ever to take track technology to the road.” We tend to agree. Blink and you’ll miss perfection.
