Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

From Mercedes-Benz press: Every masterpiece has a signature.

One man, one engine. Beyond all the racing trophies earned in the storied legacy of AMG — the high‐performance arm of Mercedes‐Benz—one small plaque tells an even greater story. Affixed atop each AMG engine, it bears the signature of the single master technician who assembled it from race‐proven components with his own hands. The superlatively engineered automobile which houses this engine will go forth to achieve imposing results in virtually every dimension of performance. But no matter what numbers it generates — horsepower and pound‐feet, mph and rpm, or seconds and g’s—every measure of an E63 AMG starts with “one.”

AMG-developed 6.3-liter V-8. With a patented dual‐length intake featuring two internal throttle flaps, the handcrafted V‐8 of the E63 AMG outputs a prodigious 518 hp @ 6,800 rpm and 465 lb‐ft of torque @ 5,200 rpm. Accompanied by the throaty growl of an AMG sport exhaust system, 60 mph arrives in just 4.3 seconds.
