(continued from above)

Externally, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG with the new M157 engine is identifiable by its new light-alloy wheels and the "V8 BITURBO" lettering on its distinctive, wider front fenders. Further unique details include AMG bodystyling with a specific design for the front and rear along with AMG rocker panels and an AMG sports exhaust system with two chrome-plated twin tailpipes.

Significantly Upgraded Interior

A striking feature of the high-quality, exquisitely crafted interior is the new AMG Performance steering wheel in a three-spoke design. The rim of this wheel, as in the 2012 CLS63 AMG, is flattened at both top and bottom to facilitate even better control of the vehicle. Aluminum shift paddles, the perforated leather in the grip areas and the three-dimensional design of the airbag cover with its "Silver Shadow" metallic trim element complement the new E-SELECT shift lever with embossed AMG badge.

Like the CLS63 AMG, the instrument cluster of the 2012 E63 AMG features a three-dimensional full-color TFT display in the center of the speedometer. The driver is welcomed by the AMG logo within the display upon opening the door.

518-Hp Engine

Familiar from the 2012 CLS63 AMG, the new engine can produce either 518 hp or 550 hp, together with an impressive reduction in fuel consumption - 22 percent less based on the European driving cycle.

This eight-cylinder powerhouse, designated internally as the M157, boasts a combination of innovative high-tech components such as spray-guided direct gasoline injection with piezo injectors, a full aluminum crankcase, four-valve technology with camshaft adjustment, air/water intercooling, generator management and an Eco Stop/Start system. With a displacement of 5,461 cc the eight-cylinder engine develops a peak output of 518 hp and torque of 516 lb-ft. In conjunction with the optional AMG Performance Package, these figures increase to 550 hp and 590 lb-ft. The 2012 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG achieves exceptional performance: acceleration from zero to 60 mph takes 4.2 and 4.1 seconds respectively and the top speed is 155 mph or 186 mph with the AMG Performance Package (electronically limited).

The improvements in output and torque that come with the AMG Performance Package can be attributed primarily to an increase in the maximum boost pressure from 14.5 to 18.8 psi. Visible differentiation is provided by a carbon fiber engine cover, AMG Performance steering wheel with black Alcantara side grips, red-painted brake calipers and a carbon fiber trunk lid spoiler.
