Alpha Performance has revealed an upgrade program for the pre-facelift Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG.

In its standard configuration, the pre-facelift E63 AMG fitted with the optional AMG Performance Package offers 549 bhp (409 kW) from its bi-turbo V8 5.5-liter engine. The tuner has managed to increase output to more than 850 bhp (634 kW) and 900 lb-ft (1,218 Nm) of torque.

This was possible by doing a complete turbo upgrade which meant replacing the Garrett ball bearing center cartridge with their in-house unit which was developed with less moving parts and "to take more abuse" and provide a quicker boost.

The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG by Alpha Performance will run the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in 3.3 seconds, 0-100 mph (0-161 km/h) in 6.6 seconds and the 60-130 mph (96 – 209 km/h) in 6.58 seconds. The ¼ mile takes 10.7 seconds at 135 mph (217 km/h), while at ½ mile the speedometer reads 164.5 mph (267.74 km/h).

The upgrade is compatible with the following models: 2012+ CL/CLS63 AMG, 2012+ GL63 AMG, 2012+ ML63 AMG, 2012+ SL63 AMG and 2011+ S63 AMG.
