If you’re looking for an E63 AMG with a little more grunt and style, but don’t want to follow the aftermarket path, Mercedes-Benz has developed a new “S” series for the facelifted versions of its high-performance mid-size model with increased power and subtle aerodynamic enhancements.
The new E 63 AMG “S” models are available now for order in the UK with first deliveries scheduled for June at prices set at £83,740 OTR for the Saloon and £85,530 OTR for the Estate, or £9,995 more than the standard E 63 AMG variants.
What the “S” package brings is a 28hp and 80Nm increase for a total output of 577HP (585PS) and peak torque of 800Nm (590 lb-ft), allowing for a 0.1 second faster run to the 62mph (100km/h) mark at 4.1 seconds for the Saloon and 4.2 seconds for the Estate.
The combined fuel consumption for the sedan is 28.5 mpg UK, with CO2 emissions of 232 g/km, with the Estate achieving 28.3 combined mpg UK, with CO2 emissions of 234 g/km, which is the same as the standard E 63 AMG Estate.
The S models also come fitted with an AMG rear axle limited-slip differential lock as standard, with the exterior gaining a high-gloss black front apron with silver-shadow splitter, side sill panels and rear trim strip with silver-shadow inserts, an AMG spoiler, 19 inch alloy wheels in Titanium matt grey, red brake calipers, and ‘S’ labeling on the boot lid.
Interior upgrades over the regular E 63 AMG models include 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 doorsills with white LED illumination, and an AMG instrument cluster with red applications and ‘S’ badging.
