Mercedes-Benz India has brought the E63 S sports saloon in India. Positioned at the peak of the E-Class hierarchy in India, the E63 has been brought to India via the CBU route and is retailed alongside the standard E-Class and the Mercedes-AMG E53.
While the standard E-Class was launched in India a few months back, the AMG version follows the exterior styling on the same lines. To spice things up, this E63 S gets a few performance-boosting tweaks. The reworked front fascia gets the large AMG front grille with twelve vertical chrome struts. Further down, the bumper has been redesigned with wider and functional air inlets to channelise it in a targeted manner. It rides on a massive set of 20-inch five-spoke light-alloy wheels that can be had in matte black or high-gloss titanium grey.
The interior of the E63 continues with the AMG-specific treatment. It is equipped with the new AMG Performance steering wheel that now gets a dual two-spoke design. The physical buttons are now swapped for a touch-based surface that has integrated controls for both the instrument cluster and the media display. The wide screen layout houses two 12.25-inch screens where one can switch between the three available AMG displays – Modern Classic, Sport, and Supersport.
Propelling the four-door sleeper is the fierce 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo that dishes out 603bhp and a peak torque of 850Nm. The AMG-specific nine-speed automatic gearbox diverts the power to all four wheels sprinting the performance saloon to 100kmph from a standstill in an eye-blinking 3.4 seconds. If one chooses to be in control, the ‘M’ mode allows the driver to directly command the gear shifts using the steering-mounted paddle shifters.
The E63 S is a truly remarkable offering from Mercedes-AMG that blends the opposite worlds of marvellous luxury and engaging performance.
