Khalil Bouguerra has released a speculative render of the upcoming 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.

The new flagship variant in the recently facelifted E-Class lineup is expected to make an appearance later on this month during the 2013 Detroit Motor Show. Without any doubt it will get a more aggressive body kit which will include bigger air vents on the front bumper.

Under the hood it will sport a twin-turbo V8 5.5-liter engine producing 550 HP (405 kW) and 531 lb-ft (719 Nm) of torque. It should enable the high-performance sedan to complete the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in less than 3.5 seconds. An optional Performance Package will increase output by at least 26 HP (19 kW) and 26 lb-ft (35 Nm) of torque, while top speed will be raised from 155 mph (249 km/h) to 186 mph (299 km/h).

In the United States, the 2014 E63 AMG will be sold exclusively with 4MATIC, while other markets will receive both variants. AWD version will be about 130 lbs (59 kg) heavier than its RWD counterpart.
