Featured Car of the Week - Mercedes-Benz E63, a Mass Stroke of Engineering
Published on Monday 18th November 2019
Mercedes-Benz has always been a household name throughout Europe and the world over, although many golden gems produced by the German outfit haven’t received the attention they deserve. The range of E-class models has often been touted as a professional, sophisticated cohort which many admire.
At the pinnacle of this range sits the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Available in both saloon and estate variants, the latter being considerably rarer, they are widely regarded as the creme-de-la-creme of premium performance motoring.
Our offering happens to be a 2012 E63 AMG Estate with the much-desired AMG Performance Pack. With an original list price of just shye of £100,000, this vehicle combines comfort, class and ruthless power all into one offering.
This beauty is certain to catch the attention of budding motorists, both visually as well as sound. Given there is a staggering 5.5 litre V8 engine under the hood (that’s quite a few cups of coffee) and two large turbo-chargers bolted on for that whirl-wind whoaaa! The body of a Great White shark and the road of a Barbary lion, you do not underestimate this car in any way. The full force of this monster is transferred through a finely-tuned chassis and modified drive-train to perfection.
The AMG Performance Package raises BHP from 520 to 555 and you'll experience 800Nm of torque in no time. This allows the driver to reach 62mph from a standstill in under 4 seconds and if you like adrenaline, a top speed of nearly 200mph – now you understand we're not over-hyping here.
The impressive exterior of the E63 also features carbon fibre detailing, 19-inch alloy wheels (AMG 5 twin spoke-design) and optional Diamond White pearlescent paint that illuminates any setting. This Mercedes-Benz hosts an impressive array of top-quality interior features with highlights including AMG leather upholstery, Parktronic, Bluetooth-powered COMMAND system and an electric panoramic glass sunroof!
In summary, this stunning E63 AMG estate is an absolute no-brainer given its amazing build quality, every-day practicality and strong residual value. Oh, and not to mention the performance.
