Forum member AMGAffalterbach is looking for a new Benz. He’s narrowed the candidates down to a 2014 E550 4MATIC and a 2012 E63 AMG. After the jump, find out which big factor can potentially affect his final decision.
I get the feeling that when Autoblog tested the Mercedes-Benz S550 Coupe, the Billy Joel song “Just the Way You Are” was playing through its speakers. In the site’s review of the S63 AMG Coupe, it basically tells the less-powerful two-door, “Don’t go changing to try and please me.” Autoblog seems to love it just the way it is. That’s not to say the publication hates the S63, though. See what I mean after the jump.
Mansory, surprisingly, didn’t go all freaky with the M1000, which is based on the new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, and left the exterior rather subdued. That’s a good thing because there’s 1,000 horsepower under the hood, making this sedan one of the best sleepers ever.
The GLE Coupe will be the first Mercedes to use the company’s new SUV naming system. It will also be the first Mercedes offered in the AMG Sport trim level. With that AMG Sport designation, the GLE will receive the AMG twin-turbo V6, which makes 367 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, before any other M-B does.
I’ve never thought that the 577 horsepower pumped out by the E63 AMG S-Model is not enough. Apparently, the guys over at Vath tuning have, and figure the car needs a 28-percent boost.
A new set of spy shots prompted us to take a closer look at the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and we like what we see.
We all have our own unique ways of celebrating major accomplishments. Some of us indulge in a fancy meal at our favorite restaurant after getting a graduate school acceptance letter. Others go out and buy a pricey gadget as a personal gift for landing a huge promotion. Mercedes-Benz builds its own trophies.
Kleemann modified the turbos, upgraded the ECU, added a better flowing exhaust system, increased the size of the intercoolers, and did a whole host of other subtle changes. The effect? 850 horsepower and 970 lb-ft of torque. Brilliant!
Your ears will never be the same after you get an aural taste of this E63 AMG’s exhaust noise.
While most automakers are focused solely on turbocharging and displacement reduction, there are those few companies that are still attempting to preserve their larger engines for future generations. In this instance, it’s Mercedes.
