With the 2009 New York Auto Show just around the corner, we’re starting to get a glimpse of the vehicles that will be shown. One such vehicle that will be shown is this all-new Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, which features the monster 6.2-liter V8 engine found in other recent AMG models. This new E63 gets an 11 horsepower bump from the outgoing model to 518, and torque is bumped up to a very substantial 465lb-ft.
The new E63 will also sport the new seven-speed dual clutch SpeedShift transmission that found its way into the SL63 roadster. Mercedes-Benz claims that this reduces fuel consumption by 12%, and makes driving a whole hell of a lot more fun. Suspension wise, the E63 gets AMGRIDE CONTROL which is Mercedes’ fancy word for electronically controlled damping system.
While we here at S:S:L are a bit split on the new E-Class design direction, we all agree that we can’t wait to get one of these on a road course.
