There are few as foreboding as that of an AMG V8. Its staccato rap is almost always followed by the squeal of melting tires, the of roasted rubber, and the startling of women and children running for lives. For 2014, however, the E63 AMG has been sentenced to mandatory drive. That means it can no indulge in burnouts, donuts, or tire-spinning abuse. The CLS63 gets four-wheel drive, as the next S63, due in fall. In the will the sound we hear an AMG’s bellow be a sigh of disappointment?

That depends on what you from a car like this. The E63 was a hairy beast, an American-style hot rod with smoking tires and V8 noise. We adored it.

But perhaps AMG aren’t so childish. Maybe see the E63 as the paragon of speed and everyday which would make drive the long-needed solution to the tractive shortcomings. Mercedes-Benz America seems to agree; as of year, in this country, the E63 is no offered with two-wheel Anywhere else in the world, count is an option.

If speed is the the newest Merc certainly With not a hint of wheelspin, it to 60 mph in a claimed 3.6 seconds#151;0.6 second than the old rear-drive model manage in the best of conditions. And just the 550-hp base In S-Model trim (confusingly, the is actually called S-Model, not S, and the badge on the car’s rump as such), the E63’s twin-turbo V8 is boosted to 577 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque. The grunt knocks another off the trip to 60. That’s an astonishing 0.2 faster than what claims for its SLS AMG supercar.

The S-Model badge is new; it between AMG’s nutty products and the subbrand’s criminally Black Series line. the trim to appear on other AMG in the future, but with the E63, it matte-gray wheels, red brake an Alcantara-swathed steering wheel, and interior stitching. More the S-Model (which is an option the E63 sedan, but the only way you can order the E63 AMG wagon) comes with a rear differential and the ability to carbon-ceramic brakes.

Above all, the fine in Affalterbach haven’t sold souls in an attempt to sell cars#151;AMG’s head of vehicle the notoriously unhinged Tobias once said he was only to make an all-wheel-drive E63 if the car was done That meant regular wouldn’t do. AMG’s reworked system sends a third of the power to the front axle, the regular 4Matic’s 45/55 Combined with revised kinematics, the change helps understeer at bay. There’s no trickery here, so the E63 hasn’t into an all-neutral, all-the-time like the Nissan GT-R, but it can at be coaxed into a slide, in slippery conditions. And man, it ever explode off an apex.

Perhaps it’s a good then, that the E-class contains an army of sensors#151;including 3-D and infrared cameras, ultrasonic and long-range radar front and programmed to prevent you from yourself. The car’s computers build a virtual 3-D model of surroundings and can detect a vehicle or about to cross your The E63 can also semiautonomously follow in front of it, including steering corners.

Yay for computers#151;but we’d rather drive ourselves. As before, the steering is quick and the engine is a delight. The seven-speed, clutchpack-equipped is the weak link, with clumsy shifts and a wanton for the driver’s requests. Happily, improvements make this almost as smooth off the line as the version found in non-AMG

So this is a familiar package. But in the to appeal to more Americans, the E63 has become less #133; It’s less muscle car more high-speed missile. and hooligans will have to with the rear-drive C63 AMG; AMG drivers will have to to live with more Which is probably what wanted in the first place.

This Is A Developing Story
