Mercedes-Benz Malaysia welcomes the latest addition to its Dream Car Collection, the Mercedes-AMG E 63 4MATIC+, priced from RM998,888 OTR without insurance, in conjunction with Mercedes-AMG’s 50 year anniversary celebration and the last Formula 1 race in Sepang.
It’s powered by a 4.0-litre V8 with twin turbochargers and direct injection that generates 612hp at 5,750rpm to 6,500rpm and maximum torque of 850Nm at 2,500rpm to 4,500rpm, mated to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT nine-speed sports transmission, which takes it to 100km/h from a standstill in 3.4 seconds before reaching a top speed of 250km/h,.
The top speed is electronically limited and can go up to 300km/h with the AMG Driver’s Package.
The E 63 4MATIC exclusively comes with the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system which enables torque distribution on the front and rear axles, fully variable for the first time, that ensures optimum traction.
Drivers can also choose from four different AMG Dynamic Select drive programs – Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual – that allow drivers to extensively influence the characteristics of the vehicle, as well as the Race drive program.
Key parameters are modified such as the response of the engine, transmission, suspension, steering, ESP and all-wheel drive system.
Independently of the Dynamic Select drive programs, the driver has the option of pressing the “M” button to switch directly to manual mode, in which gearshifts are executed exclusively using the shift paddles on the steering wheel, while the suspension set-ups can also be selected if desired.
The exterior design features a sporty front, with the bonnet inset between the wings and bumper, while the wheel arches accommodate greater track width and larger wheels on the front axle, with 20-inch AMG cross-spoke forged wheels.
It also features a new radiator grille with twin louvres in silver chrome, vertical black struts and AMG lettering and wide front apron inspired by the design of a jet wing with flics in black and a large front splitter.
On the rear, it is designed with a clearly defined spoiler lip in the colour of the vehicle on the boot lid, rear apron with diffuser-look insert and two gloss black finish trim elements on the selectable sports exhaust system.
The E 63 S 4MATIC+ also features a trim strip in Night Package on the rear apron.
Meanwhile, there is also a limited E 63 4MATIC+ Edition 1 available; complementing the paint finish in designo Night black magno, dynamic stripes on the side sill panels emphasise the elongated side view and underline the forwards thrust of the new performance saloon.
Added to this are new AMG 20-inch forged wheels in matt black with high-gloss polished rim flange and the Night package.
The inside features AMG Performance seats in black nappa leather with yellow topstitching, AMG Performance sports steering wheel, door armrests, centre console, AMG floor mats and IWC-designed analogue clock with yellow topstitching or accents.
The sports steering wheel in black DINAMICA microfibre features “Edition 1” lettering and a 12 o’clock marking in black, while carbon-fibre trim elements further enhance the exciting juxtaposition of colours and materials.
