2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 Spec-Sheet Says It Will Have Up To 612PS!

The new 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63’s performance secrets have been spilled through a leaked document from Russia, which suggests that the German super model will be more powerful than originally thought.

Adopting the latest iteration of AMG’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, the new E63 will deliver 571PS (563hp) and 750Nm (553 lb-ft) in base form, and a whopping 612PS (604hp) and 850Nm (627 lb-ft) in ‘S’ trim, compared to 525PS (518hp) / 700Nm (516 lb-ft), and 585PS (577hp) / 800Nm (590 lb-ft) for the previous regular and ‘S’ E63 models with the 5.5-liter V8.

That’s enough for the new E63 AMG 4MATIC to shoot to 100km/h (62mph) in 3.7 seconds, with the ‘S’ 4MATIC model cutting the sprint down to 3.5 seconds, representing an improvement of 0.7 and 0.6 seconds respectively over the older W212 E63s.

In both cases, top speed is electronically restricted to 250km/h (155mph), while the spec sheet shared on the Germancarforum also confirms a 9-speed automatic transmission and claims an overly-optimistic – for real life driving, average fuel consumption of 8.6l/100km (equal to 27.4 mpg US).

The E63 AMG will be offered in rear-wheel and ‘4MATIC’ all-wheel drive forms, though, not all markets will get both versions, with the sedan model to be followed by the more practical Estate, and later on, by the Coupe and Cabriolet models.
