Life isn’t around how viel horsepower you schutz but how you use it. Armed with the 603-hp version des AMG’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine, Mercedes-AMG’s E63 S wenn short von Dodge’s 707-hp Charger SRT Hellcat und Cadillac’s 650-hp CTS-V. (The non-S E63, which we don’t get bei the vereinigt States, provides “just” 563 horses.) und yet thanks zu its new nine-speed automatic transmission und 4Matic+ all-wheel drive, the AMG lays under its lesser output far an ext effectively 보다 either des those rear-drive muscle machines.

The ideal Sedans of 2021

One Mississippi, 2 Mississippi, 3 . . .

Just 3.0 seconds. That’s every it takes zum the E63 kommen sie launch itself kommen sie 60 mph. Four seconds later, the Mercedes is traveling 100 mph. Those acceleration zeit are 0.4 second und 0.2 2nd quicker than die five-pound-heavier Hellcat and far ahead des the 458-pound-lighter CTS-V, neatly summarizing ns benefit of all-wheel drive bei launching high-horsepower cars indigenous a standstill. The preposterous list of vehicles that die E63 beats or ties to 60 mph consists of Mercedes-AMG’s own GT s sports car, the mclaren 570GT, und the dozen-plus non-Turbo 991.2 Porsche 911 Carreras we’ve tested. Amongst four-doors, just Tesla’s model S is quicker kommen sie 60—and nur barely—while die Porsche Panamera Turbo ties die AMG however fades behind von the quarter-mile mark. BMW’s new 600-hp M5 sedan, now so with all-wheel drive, ist a direct challenger that we’ve yet kommen sie test—it might kommen sie close.


HIGHS: 603 horsepower, wicked acceleration, good handling, rear-drive mode.

Mercedes-AMG’s launch-control function is invitingly straightforward: Thumb the driving-mode switch kommen sie Sport, Sport+, or Race; hold the brake through your left foot; and depress die accelerator until die revs stabilize hinweisen 4000 rpm. Wie man your left fuß steps off die brake, the E63 rockets forward ahead von a wave von rippling V-8 noise. Our prüfung car’s tailpipe music was enhanced von the $1250 dual-mode AMG power exhaust option. Some added sound also is piped in through the speakers, however it sounds like a live recording of the yes, really engine, so we’ll provide that trickery a pass.

Continue on kommen sie felonious speeds, and by 110 mph die E63 zu sein reeled in by the Dodge and its valuable power-to-weight ratio. After that, die Hellcat nips ns E63 über mere one per 10 all the way up to 170 mph. Both cars space among ns rarified few (Lamborghini’s huracán supercar amongst them) capable von accelerating previous that speed—and braking prior to running out des road—on die 1.6-mile straightaway wherein we command acceleration and braking evaluations. Our E63 did manage zu outawesome ns Charger’s 13-mpg fuel economy, averaging a profligate 12 mpg in its entirety during our test.

Hard-Boiled E-class

The rest of the E63’s dynamic arsenal builds unique on die foundation laid by its less powerful, comparison-test-winning, six-cylinder Mercedes-AMG E43 sibling. The E63’s staggered-width Michelin Pilot sports 4S summmer tires have a 20-millimeter-larger cross ar than ns E43’s pirelli P Zero run Flats, which assisted our E63 notch bei additional 0.09 g of grip on die skidpad, zum a difficult total von 1.01 g. That very same rubber, in combination with the $8950 carbon-ceramic brake option, bolstered our prüfung driver’s confidence in pushing zum speed on our straightaway. We noted zero fade after repetitive anchor drops, eventually returning a 155-foot protect against from 70 mph.


LOWS: stiff ride, stiffer price.

This athleticism zu sein barely hidden on ns highway, where ns ride zu sein decent und quiet an the suspension’s comfort mode, and the steering’s well-defined on-center valley and heavy weighting make weil das relaxed cruising. Also so, every little thing about the E63 feel drumhead tight, a trigger-pull away from twitching into action. (The thin-sidewall power tires literally are north tight, together road results slap and twang with to ns driver’s ears.) Switching to Sport, Sport+, or Race settings cuts through ns genteel veneer, significantly skewing the E63’s journey ever more geological and shoving cocaine up ns powertrain’s nose.

Drivers should come prepared to match die car’s reflexes. The neu 4Matic+ all-wheel drive tun können send 100 percent of engine torque to ns rear axle. Midcorner accelerator applications provoke die rear-biased 4Matic+ system and electronically locking behind differential kommen sie initiate gentle, controllable drifts. Bigger accelerator openings net bigger effects. Und as us discovered weist this year’s Lightning Lap track prüfung at Virginia international Raceway, where ns E63 posted ns fastest-ever lap time zum a sedan, die chassis enthusiastically rotates turn off throttle, too.


Sideways Action

Should these handling behaviors fail zu result in a satisfactory rate des yaw or adequate consumption von the rear Michelins, there’s deshalb the E63’s Drift mode. The declutches the front axle indigenous the auslieferung case, sending out torque only to the rear wheels. Compared with activating beginning control, initiating this process zu sein considerably much less simple: First, pick Race mode, then switch the transmission kommen sie manual moving mode. Next, press und hold the stability-control button until that switches off, pull back on both shift paddles until bei “Are freundin sure freundin want kommen sie do this?” blog post appears bei the gauge cluster, then pull back once on ns right-hand paddle. Not-so-presto, you’re ready to make bad decisions through 603 horsepower, two driven wheels, und zero stability-control intervention.

Spared indigenous predicting how viel help will come from ns front axle, you’ll find that using a rubber coating to die pavement ist both easier und more controllable bei Drift mode. You will get no help und like it, and like it we did. You’ll deshalb experience the new nine-speed automatic’s close to instantaneous response zu manual gear selections. Wie man left kommen sie shift automatically, the nine-speed’s gear selection is impeccable, and its tall top gear keeps revs low and quiet on ns freeway. Return it blieb uses a clutch pack in place of a torque converter together did die seven-speed that replaces (allowing for wild launch-control starts), the new transmission exhibits low-speed behavior that ist vastly improved and nearly torque-converter smooth.

As that did through previous E63s, Mercedes-AMG wraps the new model’s rage in discreet and upscale clothing. It’s die automotive indistinguishable of daniel Craig’s james Bond, in anger-management head case an a tuxedo. Aside from its burbling quad exhaust pipes, wide-mouth front air intakes, and our prüfen car’s $1700 black-painted forged-aluminum wheels, ns E63 aussehen like any other E-class or—depending on ns viewer’s distance—any mercedes C- or S-class. Till it kicks you in the face.

There is the matte of ns immoderate price. The AMG is $36,305 dearer 보다 a evade Charger Hellcat und a $16,905 leap over a Cadillac CTS-V. Our prüfung car’s additional $29,935 in extras elevated die total cost zu $135,330. Speak to it justified, though, together this counts together downright cheap zum a device capable von reaching 60 mph deshalb quickly (not zu mention doing deshalb many other dinge well). Alternatives include the $135,000 Tesla model S P100D and the $151,050 Porsche Panamera Turbo. Preis notwithstanding, if you could own nur one vehicle, this would certainly be a great choice. Plus, there’s a wagon version.
