My 14 E63 dynoed stock at 629 crank HP which was 52 more than the 577 rated.

If a similar understatement exists with the new one, that 612 HP should equate closer to 664. Not bad.

I hope those exhaust snaps on the throttle lifts are as animated as they are in the video.

Why do they call it an E63 when it has a 4 liter? Why not call it an E40? Blasphemy!

In my humble opinion the new E Class looks like last year's C Class.

when equally modded I don't think we lose to them.

With ECU tune on both usually e63 beats m5

We need more info on this new split power in drift mode. Can it be set to full 100% rear end power,for top speed runs or not. Also trans is wet clutch, but with 9 gears now.

An other factor to take into account...this is all new, the first batch will be nasty if things go wrong, as I do not know of any other MB that runs such tec. The E will be the first to pilot it onto the battlefield

Yeah, I've been looking for a W213 section for a while. I guess we shouldnt feel so bad as the G63 still doesn't have its own section and is piled in with the G55!

The rear end looks too much like a CLS, otherwise, I'm pretty excited!

they are saying that wet clutch is now being replaced with a torque converter.

This is might be a good thing if it elimates that stupid lag the current e63s has off the line before it gets moving.

As for the rear wheels getting all the power, it sounds from
the article that the car needs to be in drift mode to do it which means you can select it anytime but only when shifting manually. So that would suck because most people would probably have trouble doing the shifts perfectly that way. Auto shifting would of worked better for the roll races imo.

also, torque converter might have higher drivetrain losses than wet clutch transmission

Your observation is about 5 years late.

Then the 2013 to 2016 E63 would be an E55 since it has 5.5 liter engine.

The 2015 to 2017 C63 would be C55.

The 2017 C43 would be C30.

The C300 would be C200.

... and on and on and on.

Insider told me its a multi disc wet clutch with 9 gears
Faster shifting, new software for downshifts and a lot of new features. 100% rear wheel power will be available in in race mode for ALL RUNS!

Now for the other bit of info that i did not know

The turbos are TWIN scroll!

Quoted

''The twin scroll turbochargers are deployed for the first time to boost performance and improve responsiveness further. The housings divided into two parallel ducts in the exhaust manifold, this makes it possible to control the exhaust gases on the turbine wheel separately. The Exhaust gas from the 1st and 4th cylinders of the cylinder bank is fed into one duct and exhaust gas from the 2nd and 3rd cylinders to the other duct.

The aim is to prevent individual cylinders from having mutually adverse effects on the gas cycle. The result are increased output due to improved cylinder charge with fresh mixture, more torque at low revs and a very immediate response times.''
