Imagine going on a blind date and meeting
an incredibly beautiful lady. Even before you get to know her in the way you
want, she is gone, leaving you with a heavy heart but with a memory that’s
going to last a lifetime… That was precisely what I felt when I was allowed to
do one single hot lap of the Buddh International Circuit in the most
powerful Mercedes-Benz E-Class of all time – the AMG E 63 S 4Matic+.

Exterior Design and
Features of Mercedes AMG E 63 S 4Matic+
The AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+ has an
expressive exterior design, featuring a new radiator grille, coupé-style inset bonnet and an
aerodynamically sound, wide and muscular front apron. The bold Mercedes logo
sits in the centre of the grille. The exterior design of the car exemplifies
finesse and sportiness, coupled with extreme performance. The power domes on
the bonnet (a Mercedes-AMG GT hallmark) and the flared wheel arches give a
broad hint of the power the car possesses. The meshless air intakes not only
add to the fashion quotient but also to the engineering values as it serves to
guide the air flow at high speeds. Not to be missed are the “V8 BiTurbo
4Matic+” lettering on the wing on either side of the car. If the front is
gorgeous, so is the rear with its muscular shape with a spoiler lip in vehicle
colour that has been given a visually
sharp edge. Then there is the AMG sports exhaust system with two chrome-plated
twin tailpipes and the rear apron with a diffuser insert in high-gloss black
and three fins. The car sits on 20-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light alloy wheels
painted in black.
Interior Design and
Features of Mercedes AMG E 63 S 4Matic+
Inside the cabin of the AMG E
63 S 4MATIC+ is a cockpit with loads of luxury. There is seat climate control
for driver and front passenger, the vehicle interior can be fragranced to suit
personal preference with the Air-Balance package.
The car comes with automatic
climate control system with 3 climate zones and 3 climate modes providing an
individual feel-good climate on board. The driver and the front passenger are
able to regulate temperature and air distribution independently of one another.
Temperature and airflow for the rear can be adjusted separately. The car comes
with power closing feature front and rear doors. As for the seats, these are
AMG Performance seats which come with side bolsters that offer immense comfort
for those seated inside. The rear seat back rests can be folded forward on its
own to enlarge the luggage compartment. The car is also equipped with wireless
charging system. The equipment package also includes stowage trays in the sides
and a double cup holder between the seats. Burmester high-end 3D surround sound

Performance of Mercedes AMG E 63 S 4Matic+
The car can achieve a top
speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited) and can do 300 km/h with the AMG
Driver's package. The engine is mated to the AMG Speedshift MCT 9-speed sports
transmission. It has an AMG Performance 4MATIC+ permanent all- wheel drive with
variable torque distribution and drift mode
The exciting drift mode
function is standard and when activated, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ becomes a
rear-wheel drive vehicle. Activated in the transmission mode “RACE” via the
shift paddles, this feature transfers all power to the rear wheels only. With
the RACE START function, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ surges immediately off the starting
blocks with optimum traction.
There is also music to the
engine sound. The sound from the engine is tuned to match the various
transmission modes of Dynamic Select. Thus, in the “Comfort” mode the sound is
sedate to some extent but gets all charged in the “Sport”, “Sport+” and “Race”
modes. The car has a completely re-engineered AMG sport
suspension based on the Air Body Control.
As for the safety features,
the AMG E63 S 4MATIC + is equipped with active brake assist, which is a
radar-based driver assistance system that can help prevent accidents with
vehicles ahead and with crossing pedestrians or mitigate the consequences of
accidents. It is a combination of
proximity warning, collision warning, situation-dependent braking assistance
and autonomous braking function. The car comes with 7 airbags. There is an
adaptive dual stage airbags for driver and front passenger, side impact
air-bags for driver and front passenger and window airbags. Multibeam
Intelligent Light System comes with a variable light distribution with
cornering function, that helps in adapting to any road conditions during night
driving, making the drive safer, and this is complemented by Adaptive High Beam
with automatic switching between high and low beam.
The Mercedes AMG E63 S 4MATIC
+ is surely a very spirited car that can set ablaze the tracks of a racing
circuit, yet behave its way through the mundane traffic of daily life. The car
scores high not only on performance but also in terms of what it has to offer
in terms of ride and handling and not to forget the luxury within its coupe
