2017 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG spotted on test in Europe

2017 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG spotted on test in Europe

The next-generation Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG has been spotted testing in Europe. While the standard W213 E-Class has been spied before, this is the first time that the shutterbugs have managed to capture this performance-oriented version of the German automaker’s premium sedan. 

Though the E63 AMG test mule was covered in heavy camouflage, it does give us a glimpse of the new single-bar front grille and the muscular bumpers. The car also ditches the current model’s angular lines to adopt a softer design. The test mule rode on redesigned alloy wheels, which houses high-performance brakes. 

The new W213 E-Class is based on a stretched version of the lightweight MRA platform, which also underpins other Mercedes-Benz models like the new C-Class and the GLC. Powering the car will be the 4.0-litre biturbo petrol V8, which in the C63 AMG and AMG GT produces 503bhp and 650Nm of torque. However, considering that this E63 AMG is a 2017 model, we can expect the power figures of the engine to be slightly higher than it is in the current state of tune. 

The E63 AMG will also be available in a wagon body style along with the sedan. While the new E-Class will be unveiled in the first half of 2016, the E63 AMG might take a few more months to reach production stage. The E63 AMG rivals other high performance sedans like the BMW M5 and the Audi S6.
