Mercedes Benz E 63 AMG

Mercedes-Benz has just announced their new range-topping E-class prior to the New York Auto Show— the E63 AMG. A striking visual presence, the E63 AMG is actually a beast on wheels with a naturally aspirated 6.2 V8 engine that outputs 518 bhp and 465 lb-ft of torque, tops at 155mph and takes you 0 to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds. Gaining a Speedshift MCT seven-speed sport transmission with a wet start-up clutch and a number of other efficiency-enhancing measures, the car is now guzzling on 12% less fuel for a good 22.4 mpg. As for the unique exterior, it’s being dominated by those 17-millimeter wider fenders bearing  the “6.3 AMG” lettering, the large air intakes and the AMG-specific daytime driving lights with LED technology. On sale in September, this is one hot ride we won’t have to wait too long for. [via Jalopnik]
