Cape Town - On paper the Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic almost defies logic; it has 450kW, storms from 0-100km/h in 3.4 seconds, weighs 1880kg and puts down its power to all four wheels. 

Grabbing the steering wheel feels like shaking hands with King Kong and the 4.0-litre bi-turbocharged V8 engine snarls like T-Rex shouting through a megaphone. 

The E63 S prowls the city with the swagger and arrogance of Pablo Escobar and hands out a beating to almost anything that comes its way. 

It lurches forward like a ballistic missile. No, the E63 S is not meant to be in civilisation; It's destined for wide, open spaces where it can be let loose in rear-wheel drive mode and execute massive power slides. 

If there's one thing you need to know, or rather hear, is the glorious V8 engine. Click the play button on the Instagram post below and enjoy.
