Walkaround – Take a tour of the 2014 Mercedes E 63 AMG
As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The 2014 Mercedes E 63 AMG has just launched in India with an eye watering price tag of Rs. 1.29 crore.

We bring you a quick walkaround video of the wild sedan which summarizes the visual changes that are incorporated by AMG and also gives you a taste of the car’s grumpy exhaust note.
Let’s start with the front fascia. The aggressive front bumper provides bigger air intake area and sports carbon fibre and silver accents. Coming to the side, the fender has the “V8 Biturbo” badge to threaten you in case you take the massive AMG wheels for granted. The carbon fibre accent is seen on the side skirt as well.
At the rear, the E 63 AMG distinguishes itself from the regular variants with the quad exhaust tips and the diffuser which also has a carbon fibre finish. A prominent chrome element bridges the exhaust tips.
On the inside, the cabin design and layout remains the same as the normal car save for the flat bottomed AMG sports steering wheel. The carbon fibre treatment is used generously on the inside as well.
Overall, the Mercedes E 63 AMG manages to look much more aggressive and sportier than its mellow sister. And then there is the angry exhaust note that voices out the intentions of the 557 horses that are hiding under the hood.
