Mercedes Benz E 63 AMG Saloon and Estate Pricing Announced

Mercedes Benz E 63 AMG

Initial Australian orders for the powerful E 63 AMG will begin to arrive over the coming weeks and will be available as a Saloon or Estate from launch late 2011. Though the latest E 63 AMG arrives with a new engine, improved fuel efficiency and additional standard equipment – Mercedes-Benz Australia is pleased to announce that the Saloon price will remain the same as the outgoing model.

The E 63 AMG delivers an output of 386 kW to 410 kW (when fitted with the optional AMG Performance pack), together with an impressive reduction in fuel consumption: the E 63 AMG consumes 10.0 litres per 100 kilometres (Estate 10.1 litres) combined, a massive 21 percent decrease when compared with the outgoing model.

This eight-cylinder powerhouse, designated internally as the M 157, boasts a combination of innovative high-tech components: in addition to spray-guided direct petrol injection with piezo injectors, these include a full aluminium crankcase, four-valve technology with camshaft adjustment, air/water intercooling, generator management and a stop/start system. With a displacement of 5461 cc, the eight-cylinder engine develops a peak output of 386 kW and torque of 700 Nm. In conjunction with the optional AMG Performance package, these figures increase to 410 kW and 800 Nm. Both variants of the E 63 AMG achieve exceptional performance: acceleration from zero to 100 km/h takes 4.3 and 4.2 seconds respectively (Estate: 4.4 and 4.3 seconds), and the top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited).

The E 63 AMG with the new AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine is available in either Saloon or Estate versions, with the market launch beginning in November 2011.

E 63 AMG Saloon: $240,985 (MRLP)
E 63 AMG Estate: $244,500 (MRLP)
AMG Performance package: $17,900 (Saloon) $16,900 (Estate)
