2014 Mercedes Benz E 63 AMG will have adequate torque to bump start a jet plane
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
It’s performance Monday here at IAB. We have talked about the new BMW X5 M and the Mercedes C 63 AMG.
Now it is time to focus on the yet another super sedan from Stuttgart – the 2014 Mercedes E 63 AMG.
We all know that there is a new Mercedes E Class just round the corner. So inevitably there will also be new E63 AMG super sedan for the petrolheads. Here are a few details that we have managed to procure so far.
2014 Mercedes E 63 AMG details
- The new E 63 AMG is theoretically a facelift and not an all new model.
- The new Mercedes E 63 will feature a new front grille and bumper design, a reshaped bonnet, new taillight lenses, redesigned quad exhaust outlets and a sleeker design profile.
- The new E 63 AMG will also drop the ponton-style lines at the rear doors which will make the side line more harmonious
- The air intakes will be lowered on the front bumper with LED daytime running lamps taking center stage.
- A new set of wheels and aero enhancements are in place to carry the AMG badge.
- On the 2014 E 63 AMG, a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine generates 537 HP/800 Nm that’s sufficient to bump start your private jet (if needed). The engine will be mated to a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT transmission.
- It will feature new technologies such as a forward-facing camera system to monitor the road ahead. It will also have a ‘congestion assistant’ system destined for the all-new S-Class that allows the car to follow slow-moving traffic autonomously.
The new Mercedes E63 AMG will be unveiled in 2013 at the same time as the standard E-Class.
