The new E 63 AMG has been given a major high performance boost in the shape of the top-of-the-range E 63 AMG S Model. With 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque, the E 63 AMG S Model is the most powerful vehicle in the E-Class range and the fastest E-Class ever offered in the UK.
With an AMG rear axle limited-slip differential lock as standard, the new E 63 AMG S Model benefits from a 28 hp and 80 Nm increase over the standard E 63 AMG and is 0.1 seconds faster, reaching 62 mph from a standing start in just 4.1 seconds for the Saloon and 4.2 seconds for the Estate.
The combined fuel consumption for the E 63 AMG S Model Saloon is 28.5 mpg, with emissions of 232 g/km of CO2, and the Estate achieves 28.3 combined mpg, with CO2 emissions of 234 g/km – the same as the standard E 63 AMG Estate.
The enhanced exterior of the S Model features exclusive design elements, including a high-gloss black front apron with silver-shadow splitter, side sill panels and rear trim strip with silver-shadow inserts, an AMG spoiler in body colour, 19 inch AMG alloy wheels painted in Titanium matt grey, red brake calipers, and ‘S’ labelling on the boot lid.
Inside, the unique interior includes black nappa leather upholstery with grey contrast stitching, silver seat belts, an AMG emblem in the headrests, an electric rear roller blind for the Saloon, AMG door sills with white LED illumination, and an AMG instrument cluster with red applications and S Model badging.
A choice of seven standard metallic paints and one non-metallic paint in Polar White for the S Model are complimented by two additional metallic paints, Diamond White and Hyacinth Red (£480), two designo metallic paints, Mocha Black and Graphite (£1,125) and two designo Magno matt paints, Allanite Grey and Cashmere White (£2,775).
The E 63 AMG S Model Saloon is priced from £83,740 OTR and the Estate from £85,530 OTR, with both available from June 2013 production.
