Like all Mercedes of AMG style, the stand out feature is it's impressive power, and this is no different in the E63. The old 6.2-litre V8 engine has been replaced with 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 – an engine also featured in top of the range M-Class and CLS.
Another addition is the stop-start feature, making the motor clearer than its former model, emitting a feasible 230g/km of CO2, an improvement on last years 295g/km and returning 28.8mpg, in contrast to 22.4mpg previously.
The 5.5-litre V8 makes such a remarkable noise that be tempting to go full throttle at every chance. Fuel economy will the last thing on your mind, as your vehicle roars at start-up and produces a blaring low pitched rumble when accelerating. Although the power of the vehicle is unchanged at 518bhp, there's an extra 70Nm of torque, combined to give 700Nm.
The Mercedes E63 would trounce the Jaguar XFR in a drag race, as well as feeling much more involving to drive. The bulky steering wheel is a joy to hold with accurate and smooth steering. The car has a fantastic balance between comfort and agility, while suspension can be stiffened up by pressing a button.
Although far from cheap, for a true supercar performance the E63 AMG is an ideal choice.
