2010 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG – details leaked

E63 AMG fq

With the New York Auto Show on next week the new E63 AMG from Mercedes Benz was scheduled to debut, but details have been leaked early. Mercedes is dropping AMG’s homegrown 6.2-litre V8 into the E-Class, along with all the other typical AMG upgrades. The spacious engine compartment of the mid-size E63 allows the burly engine enough room to produce 518 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, the same as big brother S63.

Unlike its AMG sedan siblings, however, the E63 is equipped with the seven-speed dual clutch Speedshift gearbox that debuted in the SL63 roadster. That development allows it achieve a 12% economy improvement over the previous model which only had 507 hp on tap. Standard 18-inch or optional 19-inch alloys with matching rubber help transfer torque to the pavement — and in typical AMG fashion, there are plenty of other goodies to be revealed at the show.
