Sprints to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds.

Sources have informed WCF that the upcoming 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG is going to come as standard with 4MATIC all-wheel drive and will develop 550 HP (405 kW) without the optional Performance Package. It will be able to perform the 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) sprint in 3.4 seconds. The current E63 AMG with its rear-wheel drive configuration produces 525 HP (386 kW) and accelerates from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.3 seconds.

As far as styling is concerned, AMG is going for a very aggressive appearance in an effort to shake the stigma of a glorified E-Class. The front and rear bumpers, headlights and the side skirts will receive some alterations, with the front bumper resembling the Ferrari F430's bumper with big rounded air intakes. The headlights will be a one-piece unit with LEDs and bi-xenon, while the side skirts are completely different and more pronounced, featuring a trim piece that runs along the car’s length.

The 2014 E63 AMG is scheduled to go into production in Q3 2013.

Why not use the AMG 55 moniker for that engine? It has a good standing in the MB-AMG community too? It only cheapens the REAL 63 nameplate going back to the `70. I am not getting into a debate that the (still) actual 6.2 litre is no 63 either I am just saying.

I opened the story to comment derogatorily about what was the big news, since the current E 63 already gets 550 in PP mode, but reading this I am floored. Standard 4Matic? That is significant news, earlier than expected.

so if you are to buy something in the category you can now choose between the m5 with the fake sound system and the e63 with standard AWD. you can ask for the craziest, most useless optional equipment and you ll get it. ask for RWD AND real sound though and you ll get a no. nice...

Why did they have to blur out the number plate? That just seems odd....

Wow. Absolutely WOW! A big, 4 door sedan knocking off acceleration times that - if true - will be virtually identical with a Ferrari 458. Just goes to show that you cannot beat 4wd traction off the line. Go AMG!!!!
