High-powered high performance vehicles.

In the autumn of 2016, Mercedes-AMG – the Mercedes-Benz brand famous for its high performance vehicles – unveiled the most powerful E-Class variants of all time. The E 63 4MATIC+ and its even sportier variant, the E 63 S 4MATIC+, both pack an intoxicating punch.

Under the bonnet resides the most powerful 4.0-V8-Biturbo engine AMG has ever installed into an E-Class. Running through the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT nine-speed sports transmission, this transforms into 450 kW (604 bhp) and 850 Nm of torque in the E 63 S, and 420 kW (563 bhp) and 750 Nm in the E 63.

AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive.

One of the most technologically impressive elements of the new Mercedes-AMG E-Class is the car’s newly installed AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive. Essentially a way to switch control and power between the wheels, the 4MATIC+ system allows front and rear torque distribution to be fully variable for the first time for maximum traction and control. Where the 4MATIC+ really comes into play is through the Mercedes-AMG’s “Race” mode. Switch it on, deactivate the ESP, switch the gearbox to manual, pull the shift paddles, and you’ll switch into “Drift” mode. Using the 4MATIC+ system, power then shifts from all four wheels to the rear, making it easier for you to glide across the tarmac.
