Sound is an incredible thing. Sound is a travelling wave of oscillating pressure transmitted through a solid, liquid, or gas, composed of frequencies that we can hear. Exploding in from the left wing comes Mercedes Benz’s latest E-class model: the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG – a sweet sound in any V8 purist’s ear.
The oscillating pressure builds when you lift the swooping bonnet and bursts into life as you start up the enormously powerful 386 Nm engine. The rumbling of the V8 sound waves break forth as the Mercedes Benz E 63 AMG heralds one of the most powerful engines in its class. It is a thoroughbred sports engine which delivers outstanding performance thanks to its high-speed talent and naturally aspirated engine design. The V8 accelerates the E-Class AMG from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds. And this experience is pure sensation.
Like Sarah Brightman, elegant and classy, the engine strikes all the sweet octaves with sensational power. And like a dancing melody, the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG hits its straps low down in the rpm range. In full swing, the Mercedes E63 AMG can catapult through the s-bends and waltz up the straight at lightning pace. Such is the class of the German stormer that driving at an ‘Allegro-style’ pace becomes a common daily practice (no, not that sort of Allegro – the musical term meaning “quick and merry”, not the old Austin).
Road noise is well muted and, in true Mercedes Benz fashion, all the impressive performance is wrapped up in lavish leather, excellent craftsmanship and fine connoisseur materials and trimmings. Every system on a Mercedes Benz should, and does, perform its function impeccably well. The Mercedes Benz E63 AMG has an extremely effective multi-zone luxury automatic climate control system, and it provides individual temperatures and a pleasant cabin atmosphere for driver, front passenger and those in the back seat. In order to ensure an optimum cabin climate, sensors constantly monitor sunlight intensity and the humidity of the air drawn in to the vehicle. In addition to this high technology is a combination of active charcoal filters that stop dust and pollutants from entering the cabin space. The Mercedes Benz E63 AMG is packed with high end luxury features, including a very handy parking guidance system.
A class leader in safety, the all new Mercedes Benz E63 AMG is equipped with all the goods you need to remain safe and secure on the motorway. That is why you will find such things as crash-responsive NECK-PRO head restraints in the front and rear. An Adaptive braking system with ABS bites into the road when unexpected situations cause yo to stop hurriedly. Exceptional German technology means that you can also enjoy the PRE-SAFE system which is able to recognise the risk of an accident early on and activate safety systems inside the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG to reduce the chance of injury occurring to the vehicle occupants. To accomplish this, PRE-SAFE continually monitors the sensor data from the systems such as ESP and BAS and identifies events such as noticeable understeering or oversteering and emergency stops. If a critical driving situation is detected, the systems can respond within fractions of a second.
Any intercity/interstate tarmac run can be performed in effortless bliss. Boasting the very best in performance and comfort, the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG can take you to the next Australian State or a night on the town in total style.
Speaking of style, the new E-Class body work is very suave…as you would expect.
