2010 Mercedes E63 AMG

The press for the New York Auto Show are a away, but Mercedes can’t that long. The company today the first official and images on the most powerful in the E-Class line-up.

The quickest of the is powered by a 6.3-liter V8 engine directly from the SL63 Although rumors had the power up to 525 hp, the E63 the same 518 hp as found in the SL63 versions of both cars 525 hp). This is a 10 hp bump the predecessor, and fuel economy has improved by twelve percent to 22

Also from the SL63 is the MCT seven-speed double-clutch automatic This is coupled into driving modes: Controlled Sport, Sport Plus and The whole package should be for a 0 to 62 mph (100 kmh) time of and top speed is limited to Germany’s 155mph.

Sales should in Europe in August, and the U.S. follow soon after.


AMG is kicking off the new 2009 season with a new dynamism: after the launch of the new E-Class, the brand within Mercedes-Benz is presenting the new E 63 AMG. This sports saloon with suitability impresses with performance, thrilling handling and a technology transfer from the SL 63 AMG Roadster.

The new E 63 AMG distinguishes itself the regular Mercedes-Benz E-Class with a completely newly AMG RIDE CONTROL sports with electronically controlled and a new front axle, and with its exterior and interior design. At the time Mercedes-AMG has achieved a in fuel consumption by almost percent for the new E 63 AMG, thanks to the use of fuel efficiency measures. its unique combination of pioneering assistance systems, the E 63 AMG further the brand’s leading position in the of automotive safety.

The AMG 6.3-litre in the new E 63 AMGdevelops an output of 386 kW/525 hp and a of 630 Newton metres, matching the fugures for the SL 63 AMG. The high-performance has also donated its AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission to the new model. transmission dispenses with a torque converter and uses a wet start-up clutch. In conjunction the four individual driving the throttle-blipping and RACESTART functions, the direct connection to the powertrain an extremely emotional and highly driving experience.

The drive is unique in this segment, and decidedly sporty per-formance the E 63 AMGaccelerates from standstill to 100 in just 4.5 seconds, with a top of 250 km/h (electronically limited). The naturally aspirated engine a displacement of 6208 cc impresses its agile responsiveness, muscular delivery and great flexibility. The composed AMGV8 sound is a accompaniment for mile after while the smooth-running engine typical Mercedes long-distance A newly designed water system ensures maximum even under the enormous stresses of the racetrack.

Fuel cut by almost twelve per cent

8 kW/11 hp of additional output the preceding model, the fuel of the new E 63 AMG has been significantly reduced: at litres of super-premium grade per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined provisional figure), the fuel of the E 63 AMGis almost twelve lower than before, and the field among sports developing more than 377 hp. This progress has been possible by a package of efficiency-enhancing These include on-demand of fuel and generator management recuperation of braking energy on the both of which are standard in the new E 63 In-engine friction is also by the AMG-exclusive twin-wire arc spray process used on the cylinder

The AMGSPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports also makes a decisive to fuel economy: a wet start-up running in an oil bath replaces the torque converter. This responds extremely rapidly, and without the losses typical of a converter transmission thanks to its low inertia. The transmission is equipped four driving modes: C Efficiency), S (Sport), S+ (Sport and M (Manual), which can be selected a rotary electronic switch in the AMG UNIT. Partial suppression of cylinders by interrupting ignition and during gearshifts under load leads to considerably shift times. In M mode the MCT 7-speed sports transmission gearshifts to be performed in 100 milliseconds.

In the more fuel-efficient driving Controlled Efficiency, the transmission the gears decidedly smoothly, and the control unit is programmed to early upshifts to keep speeds as low as possible. At the same the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports met the most demanding requirements driving dynamics are concerned: and precise multiple downshifts first-class agility in conjunction the automatic throttle-blipping and RACE function: this enables the E 63 AMG to call on the maximum acceleration automatically.

Electronically controlled system and a new front axle or more comfort-oriented? The driver of the new E 63 AMG is not obliged to accept any compromises in respect. The AMGRIDE CONTROL suspension copes equally with the agile manoeuvres of the and more comfortable, sedate High performance and typical long-distance comfort go together as an synthesis in the E 63 AMG. This is possible by the newly developed AMG CONTROL sports suspension. new steel spring struts are on the front axle, the rear features AMG-specific air springs. The of this solution, which is to AMG, is that the front struts ensure more responses while the rear air with their automatic control system keep the at a constant height irrespective of the

A new, electronically controlled system automatically varies the characteristics according to the driving reducing the roll angle of the The result is instant adjustment to the best possible ride together with the greatest agility. In addition the driver is to choose between the three modes of Comfort, Sport and plus at the touch of a button. The E 63 AMG is equipped with a newly dedicated front axle a 56-millimetre wider track, a stabiliser, new control arms, new bearings, new elastokinematics and new wheel for more negative camber providing more grip taking bends at speed. The kinematics also ensures more precision. This is a sophisticated axle design principle has already proved its in the C 63 AMG. The rear axle has more negative camber, elastokinematics and a new subframe mounting for stability at the physical limits.

Newly developed power and individual 3-stage ESP®

For direct responsiveness, the speed-sensitive steering is also a new development. The ratio of 14. 1 is 22 percent more than in the standard production while a more rigid column plus the reconfigured mapping of the speed-sensitive servo ensure better steering and improved road contact.

The ESP® familiar from the SL 63 AMG and C 63 AMG individual settings to be selected clear benefits in terms of pleasure combined with the high level of handling The ESP® key in the AMG DRIVE UNIT the driver to choose between ESP ON, ESP and ESP OFF with the currently active shown in the central display of the cluster. Perfect deceleration when driving extremely is ensured by the AMGhigh-performance braking with 360-millimetre, internally and perforated brake discs Particularly resistant, motorsports-tested technology is used at the front Outstanding grip is ensured by the AMG light-alloy wheels with a of nine and 9.5 inches and mixed sizes of 255/40 R 18 at the front and R 18 at the rear.

Decidedly dynamic and exterior

The decidedly dynamic of the E 63 AMGis fully in keeping the uncompromisingly sporty technology. The aspect is characterised by 17‑millimetre wings bearing 6.3 AMG lettering, the new AMG apron with large air apertures and the AMG-specific daytime lights in LED technology. In conjunction the optional Intelligent Light the E 63 AMG is equipped with tinted headlamps. The striking visual is further enhanced by the AMG side and AMGrear apron with a diffuser insert. As a hallmark of the the AMG sports exhaust system has two designed, chrome-plated twin

The newly designed interior of the E 63 an exciting blend of high-grade and functional sportiness. Exclusive include the dedicated, electrically AMG sports seats with lateral support and the AMG sports wheel in a four-spoke design AMG shift paddles. As a completely new exclusive to the E 63 AMG, the AMG selector has one-touch logic. Directly to it in the centre console is the AMG DRIVE which provides adjustments for the MCT transmission, the ESP functions, the suspension and the AMG driving modes. Standard also includes high-grade upholstery in three different the AMG instrument cluster with an AMG menu, door entry with AMG lettering and a sports cluster both in brushed steel.

The launch of the new E 63 AMG will commence in 2009.


Powerful delivery, impressive pulling exhilarating agility coupled frugal fuel consumption. The AMG V8 engine in the new Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG combines apparently contradictory qualities. All to an entire package of efficiency-enhancing

With peak output of 386 hp from a displacement of 6208 cc the AMG V8 engine ranks among the most powerful standard-fit naturally aspirated engines. The speed of 6800 rpm and the maximum speed of 7200 rpm are the hallmarks of high-revving engine. But it also enormous pulling power: 630 newton metres at 5200 the AMG V8 offers more torque any other naturally aspirated in this displacement and performance High pulling power at low speeds, instant responsiveness and high-revving flexibility are the strengths of the AMG V8 engine unveiled in 2005.

fuel consumption of 12.6 per 100 kilometres the new E 63 AMGbetters its predecessor by 1.7 km or 12 percent, despite the extra of 8 kW/11 hp. As such, the new high-performance leaves the competition standing. significant reduction in fuel comes courtesy of a wealth of measures: the E 63 AMG is the first AMG model to alternator management with energy recovery as standard. The fuel supply, friction-optimised (TWAS) coating on the cylinder and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports with the Controlled Efficiency transmission mode and wet start-up which replaces the torque (see page 15) are crucial in improving efficiency.

Recuperation: energy during braking

management on the new E 63 AMG takes advantage of the overrun phases and braking to kinetic energy. This is then used to charge the rather than being by simply generating heat. recuperation assists the driver not during braking action but helps convert the braking into electrical energy. the alternator is switched to no-load during acceleration, thus the load on the engine. All of which fuel: some 0.15 per 100 kilometres as per NEDC ratings and up to 0.2 km on urban roads with overrun and braking phases.

The (TWAS) coating on the cylinder used exclusively by AMG produces low friction while reducing consumption at the same time. The controlled fuel supply in the same way: depending on the requirements and outside temperature, the operates at a demand-actuated fuel of between 3.6 and 4.5 bar and is regulated at lightning The engine management system the command from the accelerator milliseconds into the corresponding pressure setting. Such ensures rapid vehicle and a sporty thrust across all ranges and at all engine speeds.

Know-how from motor went into the design

In AMG fashion, the design of the AMG 6.3-litre V8 has been based closely on its counterparts. As customary with the racing engines, the AMG engineers for a closed-deck design with the made entirely out of aluminium for the unit. To produce a crankcase superb torsional stiffness, the section of the crankcase has been as a bedplate. This produces a stiff tunnel for the crankshaft can easily withstand the high pressures and reduces flow within the crankcase. The resulting in mechanical efficiency helps fuel consumption. An oil scavenger into the bedplate reduces oil foaming.

The finely balanced is designed for the highest stresses, of the high-quality forged steel 42CRMo4V, rotates in five bearings and features six counterweights for balanced masses. Torsional long-term structural strength and characteristics are also to the very standards. Two lightweight connecting forged by the cracking process are to each of the four crank During this process, the production precision is made by a predetermined breaking point by a laser beam. Extremely weight tolerances between the connecting rods are also by precision machining. The same is also used for the cast, pistons. They are made a durable high-temperature alloy. oil spray nozzles in the crankcase optimal cooling of the highly piston crowns.

Variable manifold with two internal flaps

The aerodynamically designed system with large and the variable intake manifold of magnesium with two integrated flaps ensure superlative charging. Its task is to ensure a torque curve by lengthening the distance at low engine speeds. At engine speeds the intake switches to short airflow to achieve a high peak The two throttle flaps can be opened to maximum in just 100 milliseconds at throttle, and the driver perceives as extraordinary responsiveness.

Rigid train, four overhead

The 32 valves in the cylinder heads are by bucket tappets. Their design allows a stiff train and therefore high speeds with large opening cross-sections, which in benefits output and torque. The intake valves have a of 40 millimetres, while their numbers on the exhaust side 34 millimetres.

All four overhead are continuously variable over a of 42 degrees. Both the intake and camshafts are adjusted as a function of load and engine speed, extremely high output and values and smooth idling, and low exhaust emissions. Depending on the speed, the valve overlap can be to ensure an optimal supply of mixture to the combustion chambers and venting of the exhaust gases. The is driven by a duplex roller and intermeshing pairs of gear

Sophisticated engine cooling

A powerful oil pump is used for the oil system on the engine. As in thoroughbred engines, the engine is cooled on the cross-flow principle. In the interests of in-engine friction and fuel the temperature of the coolant is also controlled. The lightweight, compact and cooling module located the large apertures in the AMG front for coolant, engine, transmission and oil ensures non-critical operating even under the extreme of the racetrack. The hot air from the suction-type fan for engine oil cooling is vented via the apertures in the AMG front apron.

AMG V8 vocals, efficient emission system

The newly composed AMG V8 fully live up to the expectations of a high-performance saloon: a powerful sound when accelerating with restrained running during smooth cruising, hallmark Mercedes long-distance The AMG experts have resolved conflict of aims with a developed AMG sports exhaust it comes with carefully tube cross-sections and two newly chrome-plated twin tailpipes.

to efficient emission control the E 63 AMGmeets current EU 5 exhaust standards and all requirements of the U.S. (LEV-II standard, On-Board II and oxygen sensor diagnosis).

production tradition of hand-built

The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine has traditionally built by hand. In the AMG engine which were opened in a highly qualified engineer an eight-cylinder engine according to the philosophy of one man, one engine in with the most stringent standards. The engineer’s signature on the AMG engine plate is testimony to the standards of workmanship. Production around three hours.

In the International Engine of the Year 2009, the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine off two awards: in the Best Performance and Above 4 litres categories, high-revving, naturally aspirated took first place by a margin in each case.

Power transfer

gears, four drive double-declutching and Race Start the power transfer on the new E 63 AMG promises emotion and pure driving At the same time, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission contributes to reducing fuel consumption.

The AMG MCT 7-speed sports transmission is an power transfer system made its debut in the high-performance SL 63 AMG in 2008. It combines the sporty, and agile feedback of a manual and the maximum convenience of an automatic Fitted with seven four drive modes, a and Race Start function, the AMG MCT 7‑speed sports transmission superb versatility. MCT stands for Technology and only employs elements to perform gearshifts.

A wet clutch, which runs in an oil replaces the conventional torque Thanks to its low rotational inertia, the responds instantaneously and dynamically the losses typical of a torque transmission thereby helping to fuel. The AMG sports transmission impresses with its low weight of 80 kilograms, which has been possible through the use of lightweight for the transmission housing. Vibrations are eliminated by a new, two-stage damper, with resulting in perceived passenger comfort.

Consumption-optimised drive mode C Efficiency)

During development of the E 63 AMG the AMG paid special attention to the new mode C (Controlled Efficiency). The was on delivering minimum engine coupled with a reduced of gearshifts in all driving situations. moving off in C, the MCT transmission always second gear and shifts early to next higher if the driving style permits. At 60 for instance, sixth gear already be engaged not only fuel consumption but noise too. Controlled Efficiency means convenient gearshifts and a accelerator response set-up for smooth power transfer.

The electronic control unit and the 80 MHz processor ensure spontaneous at the same time say when traffic lights or if the driver needs power for dynamic

Drive modes S, S+ and M for even driving pleasure

The engine and come across as much agile in the S (Sport) mode. pedal movements trigger a direct traction response, the downshifts more spontaneous. The speed is allowed to reach a level in each gear, the gearshifts are around 25 percent than in C. Turning the rotary in the AMG DRIVE UNIT a notch to the right activates S+ mode. plus shifts the gears 25 percent faster than in S. The applies to the manual shift M. In S+ and M modes, gearshifts at full take just 100 milliseconds.

The management system partially cylinders in S, S+ and M modes: precisely ignition and injection under load for brief periods to even faster gearshifts before. The highly emotional are an appealing side effect of lightning-fast process.

Ultra-fast, multiple downshifts are another of the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports For instance, kickdown lets you straight from seventh to fourth gear or from to second. In the Sport, Sport and Manual modes the automatic function is active. Every or automatic downshift is accompanied by metered double-declutching from through “S+” to “M” And this not only adds to the emotional experience: the load-free minimises load-change reactions, pays dividends particularly braking into a bend on the and also enhances safety in the wet or on

In manual “M” mode the also benefits from the torque of the V8 engine, as there is no downshift under full and kickdown; the transmission remains in the selected gear. Moreover, the AMG MCT transmission does not perform an upshift in manual mode the rev limit is reached. In “M” the AMG instrument cluster displays the gear and alerts the driver to the for an upshift just before the reaches the red zone. This that a particularly sporty can use the superior performance potential to its extent. When approaching the rev limit, e.g. when the vehicle, there is an automatic to the next lower gear.

AMG UNIT with Race function

The AMG DRIVE UNIT is the control unit for the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT sports transmission and all driving functions. The driver can change either using the new AMG E-SELECT lever or via the AMG steering-wheel shift On the left next to the selector is the electronic rotary switch to the four drive modes activation of the Race Start Underneath are three buttons for functions: the first controls the function, the second the AMG RIDE sports suspension. The third with AMG lettering is used to the personal set-up. Briefly the AMG button brings up the configuration whilst holding down the allows you to program the required — this is confirmed by an signal. The current settings may be in the AMG instrument cluster by pressing the AMG at any time.

The Race Start delivers maximum dynamism: the vehicle is at a standstill, the driver to activate the ESP® sports and press the brake pedal their left foot. preselected the Race Start using the rotary switch, a message comes up on the AMG central The driver then simply to confirm the Race Start by pulling the “Up” shift once, fully depressing the and taking his foot off the brake. The start-up engine speed is set automatically and the E 63 AMG accelerates away flawless traction all the way up to top speed, if so The driver does not need to gear manually; the AMG transmission gear with lightning-fast times.

Chassis and braking

High cornering speeds, driving dynamics coupled typical Mercedes long-distance when it comes to the chassis and system, AMG has developed innovative that ensure the new E 63 AMG consolidates its position in the high-performance saloon

The sophisticated AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension on the E 63 AMG combines steel at the front, while an all-air system is used at the rear. exclusive solution guarantees a response from the front while the vehicle is kept at a height thanks to the automatic control system irrespective of the The top-of-the-line AMG model differs the other E-Class variants its newly developed three-link suspension with wider 56 mm wider than the E 500. In with new hub carriers for more camber at the front, this much more grip taking bends at high

Another feature of the AMG RIDE sports suspension is the electronically damping system: the system the damping characteristics instantly to the driving situation, road and load status, reducing the angle of the body. For the driver means instant, continuously adjustment between the greatest agility and optimum ride depending on the driving style and The damping can also be individually by pressing the appropriate button in the AMG UNIT. A push of a button is all it for the electronics to switch from to Sport or Sport plus. The mode is displayed in the AMG instrument

Comfort delivers a sensitive with soft damping while the shock absorber is an average xx percent firmer in Sport plus is ideal for laps on private racing here the shock absorbers are another xx percent firmer. The E 63 AMG can be enhanced even further ex with the Performance package: The package includes the AMG RIDE Performance suspension with its firmer set-up, lightweight 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels, and a axle locking differential 40 percent locking action also page 27).

Eleven sensors for electronic control

The electronic damper utilises four sensors to monitor the drive and brake along with steering and lateral acceleration. Four sensors are also used to the ride height and to ascertain the of motion. Three acceleration help identify the absolute roll.

Powerful control that interact constantly the engine and transmission control instantly adjust the forces at the shock absorbers.

New axle and more direct steering

The axle components provide testimony to the painstakingly redesigned AMG CONTROL sports suspension. New knuckles, wishbones, torque bearings and head bearings at the provide extra stability and road contact. A weight-optimised, tubular stabiliser reduces roll on fast S-shaped The rear suspension has also substantially reworked in the interests of handling stability: new track push-pull rods and far more mountings for the subframe on which the axle is mounted , translate enhanced dynamics when The AMG-specific kinematics and the new elastokinematics on axles also noticeably precision during cornering a that has already proven on the C 63 AMG.

Added to which is the developed rack-and-pinion steering: the steering ratio which is 22 more direct (14. 1), with the reconfigured characteristic of the speed-sensitive servo assistance more agile cornering. feedback in all driving situations courtesy of the Hardy disc out of a rubber compound that is harder; it sits between the shaft and steering coupling.

ESP® with Sport as in the SL 63 AMG

The 3-stage ESP® is also tailored to the superb dynamic of the E 63 AMG: familiar from the SL 63 AMG and C 63 the Electronic Stability Program three individual control at the push of a button: the ESP® in the AMG DRIVE UNIT allows the to choose between ESP ON, ESP SPORT and ESP OFF the currently active mode in the display of the AMG instrument cluster. In ESP ON, the of handling instability leads to intervention at one or more of the wheels, by a reduction in engine torque.

In this mode the intervention to counter oversteer or as well as the accompanying reduction in torque, allows a higher threshold and, for instance, drift angles providing the with the benefit of far greater pleasure. Operating the brake restores all the normal ESP® Prolonged pressure on the ESP® activates ESP OFF. There is no to control the handling dynamics and no reduction in engine torque increasing driving enjoyment further. ESP OFF should only be by experienced drivers on dedicated In this mode too, the brake pedal restores all the functions of ESP®.

The is extremely short stopping exact pressure point and higher fade resistance under extreme operating The larger ceramic discs 402 x 39 millimetres; rear: 360 x 32 millimetres feature a composite design and are with a floating radial to an aluminium bowl.

Compared the conventional composite brake the ceramic brake discs are 40 percent lighter. The further in unsprung masses not only driving dynamics and agility but improves steering response as as ride comfort and contact Six-piston fixed callipers are at the front with a brake surface of 2 x 154 cm2; four-piston callipers with a brake surface of 2 x 73 cm2 are used at the rear.

functions of the AMG high-performance braking enhance comfort and safety. the practical HOLD function: if the E 63 AMG has to a stop, the driver simply to press the brake pedal a bit firmer. The vehicle is now held by the even if the driver takes foot off the brake pedal. prevents the vehicle from rolling forward in stop-and-go or inadvertently rolling back on an slope. The HOLD function is disengaged once the vehicle is forward. Another useful comes in the shape of the hill-start If the sensor technology detects the driver has stopped on an incline, the pressure is automatically maintained for a short period. This the E 63 AMG will not roll back and the has sufficient time to switch right foot from the to the accelerator pedal without to use the parking brake.

The systems turn the E-Class an intelligent partner that is to see, feel, respond in dangerous situations and act autonomously to accidents or mitigate their With this concept the new E 63 AMG not protects its own occupants, but also greatly to the safety of other users.

The new E-Class is the first car in the to be equipped with headlamps adapt to the traffic situation and automatically to provide the best road illumination in a given and avoid dazzling other users. The optional Adaptive Assist uses a camera on the to recognise oncoming traffic and in front and to control the headlamps so beams do not reach the other The range of the dipped headlamp can be extended from the current 65 to as as 300 metres. If the road ahead is the system performs a gentle to high beam. Mercedes-Benz this new system in a Light that includes bi-xenon the Intelligent Light System and LED driving lights.

The Lane package for the E 63 AMG includes Blind Assist familiar from the and as a new development, Lane Keeping which seeks to prevent the from leaving the road When the system recognises the car is drifting from its lane, the is prompted to take countersteering by three brief but unmistakable of the steering wheel. The images the windscreen camera are also by the new, optionally available Limit Assist, which speed limit signs as the car them, then displays the speed limit in the speedometer.

Thanks to an innovative technology, the new E 63 AMG is sensitive to its driver’s attention and warns him or her of drowsiness in good This new ATTENTION ASSIST detection system, which is equipment, is equipped with sensitive sensors that monitor more than 70 parameters. Observing the driver’s behaviour has proved to be a particularly indicator: several years of research by Mercedes engineers shown that drowsy make minor sAteering which they often very rapidly in characteristic These corrections are recognised by a sensitive steering angle

Automatic emergency braking a collision is imminent

The well-proven, assistance systems from the are now also optionally available to customers. An enhanced long-range sensor now has a range of 200 metres 150 metres), and is able to monitor the so that dynamic events as a vehicle ahead suddenly out to overtake can be detected even effectively. The two wide-angle short-range sensors, which have a of around 30 metres, continue to be in the system.

The radar-supported systems are to assist the driver with braking. Their sensors are to the BAS PLUS system, which calculates the braking pressure to a collision in critical situations. The is given an audible and visual at the same time. When the pedal is pressed, the system provides the calculated level of assistance.

If the driver fails to to the warnings, the radar system initiates partial braking As a second stage, if there is no driver response and a collision is emergency braking is initiated. can reduce the severity of an impact as the system can be regarded as a kind of crumple zone.

During the of its development, the new E-Class was subjected to than 150 high-speed crash The crumple zone principle by Mercedes safety pioneer Barényi has been continuously by the engineers in Sin delfingen. The front-end zone of the E-Class acts on independent levels, and is even effective than before. The use of extra-high-strength steel alloys helps to ensure that the is able to withstand high forces. Around 72 percent of all the panels are made from high-tech steels yet another figure in passenger car development.
