Mercedes presents its fabulous E63 AMG 2010

The NY Auto Show press days are one week away, the thing is Mercedes can not wait this long. New details and pictures of the E63 AMG are unveiled by Autocar now.

The fastest of the E-Class runs with a V8 6.3-liter engine directly plucked from the SL63 AMG model. Although the rumors said the power is up to 525 hp, this E63 unit is making the same 518 hp that's found on the SL63. So, this is a ten hp bump right from the predecessor, plus the economy of fuel has still raised by 12 % to 22 mpg.

From the SL63 also is the Speedshift MCT double-clutch automatic 7-speed transmission. And all this is coupled now into 4 driving styles: Controlled Efficiency, Sport Plus, Manual and Sport. The full wrap should be great for a zero to 62 mph (100 kmh) 4.5sec time, and maximum speed limited to the German standard of 155mph. The sales should start in September in Europe, and the United States should follow after that.
