The Mercedes-AMG E63 sedan reportedly debuts in late September or early October in time for the Paris Motor Show, and a new video offers a preview of the high-performance four-door on the road. The clip is also an opportunity to check out the wagon, and there’s possibly a glimpse of the even hotter Black Series version, too.
An E63 sedan and wagon in this clip wear minimal camouflage around just the parts Mercedes needs to tweak from the standard versions. The updated design features a front fascia with significantly larger intakes and a different hood from other E-Class models. The automaker also installs more robust side sills and a new rear diffuser. The resculpted trunk has a more prominent lip spoiler, too.
However, the last sedan in this video has significantly more camouflage than the other two, which hints this might be the Black Series version. Recent spy shots show a similarly covered E-Class Estate. However, the wagon features large fender flares and a different front end, and these parts don’t appear on this four-door. The differences make the identity of this car a mystery.
Mercedes will offer customers tuned versions of its 4.0-liter biturbo V8 in the E63 AMG, and they’ll be all-wheel drive. The standard model will reportedly produce 571 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. The hotter S would have 612 hp and 626 lb-ft, according to a leaked document. The Black Series – or whatever the model’s true identity is – would surely be even more potent.
After the E63 sedan debuts in Paris, the wagon would join the lineup several months later. If the Black Series exists, the normal product strategy usually dictates introducing the most powerful version last.
