The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG will arrive here around the third quarter.
Mercedes-Benz has released an early image of the E63 AMG ahead of its debut at Detroit motor show.
The performance sedan was shown in a group photo of the whole E-Class range, shot on Merc’s test track in Stuttgart.
The few details released with the image confirm earlier reports that the E63 AMG will offer the brand’s 4Matic all-wheel drivetrain, however it’s too early to determine if this will make it to Australia.
The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG will arrive here around the third quarter, powered by the current 5.5-litre twin-turbo engine developing 386kW of power and 700Nm of torque – upped to 410kW and 800Nm if you option the Performance Pack – mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
There’s no indication of whether there will be a considerable price rise over the current starting tag of $240,985, but even at the performance end of the range Mercedes will be keen to stay competitive against their German rivals.
