Mercedes-Benz is showing off a couple new 2014 year model cars. The vehicles include the E63 AMG 4Matic that now includes a performance oriented AMG all-wheel-drive system is standard equipment. Mercedes is also bragging about the more powerful S-Model that has 577 hp and 590 pound-feet of torque.
The car is able to make that much power thanks to a 5.5-liter AMG V8 bi-turbo engine. The car is available as a sedan or a wagon in the S-Model and is a sedan only in the standard E 63 AMG 4Matic version. The standard 4Matic version of the car makes 550 hp and 531 pound-for torque.
The sedan and wagon version of the car can hit 60 mph in 3.6 seconds. The standard version of the car is electronically limited to 155 mph while the S-Model is electronically limited to 186 mph. A wagon capable of 168 mph and 0 to 60 in 3.6 seconds is impressive indeed.
