Watch The New Mercedes AMG E63 S Sprint To 250km/h Like It’s Nothing

We can safely say that the new Mercedes AMG E63 S is a festival of incredible numbers but nothing screams ‘Insanely Fast!’ louder than a speedometer being rushed into deep triple digit numbers.

On times like these, we find ourselves asking why on earth would someone need more than 600hp in a four-door saloon before the cold, hard truth hits us: because it’s just huge fun.

That and of course because Mercedes AMG is one of the core sides in the power war that’s been going on for over fifteen years now. BMW M and Audi RS are some of the others, if you had to ask.

Powered by a twin turbo 4.0-litre V8 that pumps out no less than 603hp, the new Mercedes AMG E63 S sets the tone for the years to come. With power going to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic wet clutch gearbox, it’s also supercar-worrying quick off the line, managing 3.5 seconds for the classic 0-62mph (0-100km/h) procedure. Top speed is a limited 155mph (250km/h) but AMG will lift it to 186mph (300km/h) if you tick the correct box in the options list.

Oh, and there’s a Drift mode too; pull the two shift paddles at the same time and the front axle is disengaged, allowing the E63 S to behave as a proper hooligan. Sounds impressive right?

Well, nothing is more impressive than watching that speedo hitting 250km/h (155mph) in such a short time from a standstill. Released from Sport Auto, the video simply demonstrates just how insanely quick the new German super saloon really is.
