2018 AMG E63s Up Close And Personal

Got to see this bad boy up and personal. Talked to the AMG technical director, Stuard personally and confirm there is zero lag off the line which is good. Enjoy.

The auto 9 speed has lag....I am not very hopeful of the MCT

Seems fair enough; there are a few sums to do there, after all.

I asked the AMG tech head who was there to give the dealer a technology review of the E63s for a test drive which was shoot down because he said it only had 100 miles and it was not broken into so he would have to basically drive like to grandpa and would get on it to show that there was no lag so we'll see.

i have a live clip of the exhaust system with the valve open and close and it sounds phenomenal. If I can only figure out how to post the video.

I never really heard of breaking in a trans or rear before , usually an engine because you want the rings to seat properly.

And you break in rings with load, acceleration and deceleration, not by driving like a baby at constant low rpms...

According to the AMG rep., the 2018 E63s pricing which will be around $120k base and will be release to dealers in the next week or so and delivery or the E63s will be in Aug.

The parts you guys saw was to show the dealer and tech the difference of them from the 2016.

I'd wait for the new cls to get the same engine with a better/more aggressive look.

Nice car and I'm sure it delivers but the interior, especially the dashboard is just so hideous. Those 4 vents below the monitors, center console, everything looks so grandpa. Pretty much for that reason I chose the earlier style. I also need the extra space of the wagon. The new wagon has quite a bit less storage. I don't see any benefits of the new car. Don't need 9 gears either. At 155mph, the engine runs at 3800 rpm. Good enough for me.
