Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG Estate

2010 Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG Estate - 386 kW (525 hp)
Daimler Press Release

2010 Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG EstatePole position for the new E 63 AMG Estate: the high-performance estate develops 386 kW/525 hp, accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, offers a maximum luggage compartment capacity of 1950 litres – all with a relatively low fuel consumption of 12.8 litres per 100 km (combined, provisional figures). With these dream figures, the new E 63 AMG Estate adds up to an extraordinary combination of driving dynamics, high utility value and superb efficiency.

The top-of-the-line E-Class not only features its own distinctive styling but also the all-new AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension including an electronically controlled damping system and a new front axle. A ceramic composite high-performance braking system is available for the first time for the E 63 AMG Estate. The unrivalled combination of groundbreaking driver assistance systems raises the bar in terms of active and passive safety in this vehicle class.

Largest luggage compartment and lowest fuel consumption – the E 63 AMG Estate sets new standards. With a luggage compartment capacity of 695 to 1950 litres and fuel consumption of 12.8 litres of Super Plus per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined), the new high-performance estate from AMG occupies pole position. None of its rivals can match this extraordinary combination of per-formance, utility value and efficiency. The AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine with its 386 kW/525 hp develops 8 kW/11 hp more than the previous model, yet betters its fuel consumption figures by almost twelve percent.

2010 Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG EstateThis improvement has been achieved thanks to a whole raft of efficiency-enhancing measures. The on-demand delivery of fuel and generator management with recuperation of braking energy on the overrun has helped reduce fuel consumption, as has the AMG Speedshift MCT 7-speed sports transmission: a wet start-up clutch that runs in an oil bath replaces the conventional torque converter, while the even more fuel-efficient driving mode "Controlled Efficiency" utilises early upshifts to keep engine speeds as low as possible.
