The E63 S’s powerful twin-turbo 603-hp V-8 engine is a mild-mannered partner and a maniacal monster all wrapped up into one. Left in Comfort mode, the engine and nine-speed automatic transmission react with stoicism and smoothness. Select any of the sportier drive modes and the powertrain unleashes relentless fury. Gearchanges are lightning fast, and the engine’s 627 lb-ft of torque tears the tires with rampant rage. In our testing, the E63 S charged to 60 mph in a mere 2.8 seconds and ripped up the quarter-mile in 10.9 seconds at 128 mph. Despite being saddled with a pair of turbochargers, the 4.0-liter V-8 sounds almost as wonderful as AMG’s naturally aspirated V-8 engines of yore. While not as supple as the regular E-class, the E63’s ride is soft enough in its default setting that daily driving is certainly a possibility. Toggle the springs to the Sport or Sport+ setting, however, and the E63 is liable to shake out the fillings in your teeth. However, we haven’t driven one with the retuned suspension yet. Push the E63 to its handling limits, and you’ll be greatly rewarded. There’s more cornering grip here than any of the E63’s impressive competitors can muster—even the BMW M5. Adding to the thrill is the AMG’s steering, which is well weighted and highly communicative.
With all that being said it was decided to pair this beautiful Blue Mercedes-Benz E63s with a set of Brixton Forged R11-R Ultrasport+ Series wheels finished in Firecracker Black (Gloss).
