Mercedes’s 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine drives most powerful E-Class yet

With the new generation of the E 63 S 4MATIC+, Mercedes‑AMG is taking the dynamic driving limits of the performance sedan to a new level.

Brian Joss – The vehicle’s heart is the powerful 4.0‑litre V8 biturbo engine. The E 63 S 4Matic+ achieves a new peak power of 450 kW. This makes the V8 the most powerful engine to have ever been installed in an E‑Class. At the same time, thanks to the AMG Cylinder Management intelligent cylinder shut-off system it has been possible to increase the efficiency of the engine significantly. By accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, the new executive sedan additionally achieves a new best value in its class.

The AMG Performance 4Matic+ all-wheel drive is a completely new development combining the advantages of various drive configurations in one: torque distribution on the front and rear axles is fully variable for the first time. This ensures optimum traction, whatever the road conditions.

A further highlight is the AMG Speedshift MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) 9‑speed sports transmission. It is combined for the first time with a wet start-up clutch. This has enabled more agile response times to be achieved.

The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4Matic+ has a price tag of R1 868 400
