AFFALTERBACH, Germany - The new Mercedes E 63 AMG has been given a major performance boost with the top-of-the-range E 63 AMG S. With 436kW and 800Nm of torque, the E 63 AMG S is the most powerful vehicle in the E-Class range and one of the fastest E-Class models yet.

And yes, the monstercar will be launched in South Africa in June 2014.

With an AMG rear limited-slip differential lock as standard, the new E 63 AMG S Model benefits from a 21kW and 80Nm increase over the standard E 63 AMG and is 0.1sec faster to 100km/h at 4.1 for the sedan and 4.2 for the estate version.


The combined fuel consumption for the E 63 AMG S Model Saloon is 28.5 mpg, with emissions of 232g/km of CO2, and the Estate achieves 28.3 combined mpg, with CO2 emissions of 234g/km – the same as the standard E 63 AMG Estate.

The enhanced exterior of the S Model includes exclusive design elements, among them a gloss-black apron with silver-shadow splitter, side sill panels and rear trim strip with silver-shadow inserts, an AMG spoiler in body colour, 19" grey AMG alloy rims, red brake callipers and ‘S’ labelling on the boot lid.

The unique interior includes black nappa leather upholstery with grey contrast stitching, silver seat belts, an AMG emblem in the head restrants, an electric rear roller blind for the sedan, AMG door sills with white LED illumination and an AMG instrument cluster with red applications and S Model badging.

The E 63 AMG S Model Saloon is priced from £83 740 (abour R1.72-million) on the road in the UK, the Estate from £85 530 (R1.97-million), available from June 2013 production.

    What is the use of all this power if you have only the back wheels to drive the car, only in some countries they sell all drive versions. This merc looks like a blow up corolla, and need tens of thousands of rands to spec it up to something presentable, just like that new crap they rolled out, the A class. No thanks, rather take a RS7 with all the bells and whistles,and still kicking the merc's ass in all departments.

      Strange thing is if the RS7 is such a better all rounder why havent I seen even one on our roads yet? I like the RS7 but blowing off the AMG cleary indicates you have not experienced the quality of either these vehicles which also tells me you are not used to quality vehicles over all. You must be one those guys who drives a Fiat but wears a Ferrari cap and key chain. You also look silly by saying that it's too much power for the back wheels as this proves your lack of driving skill.

      Tieno Bloubul - 2013-05-15 22:49

      First of all, AMG scream "I want attention". Second, 426kw/800nm at the back wheels is insane, you can do the same with a 147kw/215nm toyota if you want the back wheels to scream. Now, why do you want to buy a R2 million rand car and proof your driving skills by fighting the back every time you pull away,I mean you buy the car for its luxury etc not true? And son, no I do not drive a fiat, but at LEAST I can afford one.....so enjoy your hand me down old citi golf and let the big boys discuss the cars

    @tieno bloooouuuuubul tipical the closest you will ever get to a merc is a picture hie hieee

      You are correct, I don't waste my time on overpriced rubbish

      Tshepo Ally - 2013-05-31 01:28

      @Tieno, this one is definitely overpriced. Not rubbish, but overpriced. I can buy two decent 911's with the R2mil and get the same driving experience regardless of the less power.

    I will stick to my Renault, thank you. Thanks to my Renaults, I know all the mechanics around town by their first names. Too much power corrupts, absolutely.
