Mercedes-Benz India launches the most powerful version of the E-Class of all time – the new Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+

The innovative 4MATIC+ drive system offers fully variable torque distribution on the front and rear axles to ensure optimum traction. Drift mode comes as standard

The leaders of the luxury and performance car market in India, MercedesBenz
set a new benchmark in the performance saloon segment with the launch of the
most powerful E-Class of all time – the AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+. This agile yet practical
saloon comes equipped with a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that generates a
stupendous 450 kW (612 hp) of power. It accelerates to 100 km/h from standstill in a
mere 3.4 seconds, making it the quickest car in the entire Mercedes-AMG line-up. The
newest masterpiece from the Mercedes-AMG portfolio was launched by Mr. Roland
Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India.

300 km/h (AMG Driver’s package)
Transmission                                          AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed sports transmission
Drive system                                          AMG Performance 4MATIC+ permanent allwheel
drive with variable torque distribution and drift mode

With this launch, Mercedes-AMG has introduced a number of new developments that
redefine the performance saloon – innovative powertrain engineering and maximum
performance are combined with distinctive design, exclusive equipment and the latest
infotainment features for comprehensive, connected multimedia applications.
The AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ also boasts several technical firsts, including cylinder
deactivation system and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) ninespeed
sports transmission combined with a wet start-off clutch. Additionally, the newly
engineered 4MATIC+ system combines the advantages of various drive configurations.

Torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which until now was strongly rearbiased,
is fully variable for the first time. This ensures optimum traction right up to the
physical limit, irrespective of the road conditions.The exciting drift mode function is
standard; when activated, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ becomes a purely rear-wheel drive
vehicle.

Safety features
Excessive power calls for even higher safety measures. The AMG E63 S 4MATIC + is
equipped with active brake assist, which is a radar-based driver assistance system that
can help prevent accidents with vehicles ahead and with crossing pedestrians or
mitigate the consequences of accidents. It is a combination of proximity warning,
collision warning, situation-dependent braking assistance and autonomous braking
function. Safety has always been a priority for Mercedes-Benz, which is very well
established with the 7 airbags equipped in the new AMG E 63 S 4MATIC +. There is an
adaptive dual stage airbags for driver and front passenger, side impact air-bags for
driver and front passenger and window airbags. Multibeam Intelligent Light System
comes with a variable light distribution with cornering function, that helps in adapting to
any road conditions during night driving, making the drive safer, and this is
complemented by Adaptive High Beam with automatic switching between high and low
beam.

Key highlights
 AMG Cylinder Management | Valves closed, fuel supply and ignition deactivated
 AMG Performance 4MATIC+ variable all-wheel drive with drift mode
 AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT nine-speed sports transmission
 AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs (with “RACE” drive program)
 AMG Sports Suspension based on AIR BODY CONTROL
 RACESTART even simpler: The control logic for the RACESTART function is new and has been simplified            considerably. In the Sport, Sport Plus or RACE drive programs, all the driver has to do is press the brake              pedal forcefully with  their left foot and simultaneously fully depress the accelerator pedal with their
right foot.
 Rear differential lock: optimal traction, including on the racetrack
 E 63 S 4MATIC+ with dynamic engine mounts as standard
 Direct and with clear feedback: AMG Sport speed-sensitive steering
 Good sensitivity and fade-resistant: the AMG high-performance braking
system
 Numerous customization options offered through “Designo”

Cost of ownership
At Mercedes-Benz, we sincerely believe that excellence in customer service will be the
next key differentiator in the luxury car segment. The myth of owning a Mercedes or an
AMG for that matter, being expensive is just a myth! Our competitive service packages
provide our customers with convenience and true value for their money. For instance,
the Star Ease – Compact Plus maintenance package for the AMG E 63 S for 2 years for
unlimited kilometers is Rs. 88,000 + taxes. Guess it’s fair to say, taking care of the most
powerful E-Class of all time, is not so expensive, after all.
