If you want breathtaking performance from your midsize luxury sedan, the Mercedes-Benz E63 has this to say: 4.2 seconds to 60 mph.


Mercedes-Benz and AMG have a history of combining luxury and performance into awesome packages, and the E63 AMG does not stray from this tradition. The first E-Class to bear the AMG touch was the 1999 E55, but when compared to the 2013 E63 AMG, the E55 AMG is a relative child's toy.

For the 2013 model year, Mercedes-Benz made mild adjustments to the various E-Class models, but left the E63 AMG model alone. It comes standard with a hand-built 5.5-liter V-8 engine that boasts a pair of turbochargers to bump its output up to 518 horsepower between 5,250 and 5,750 rpm and 518 foot-pounds of torque from 1,750 rpm and 5,000 rpm. Combined with its seven-speed AMG Speedshift MCT transmission and ECO start-and-stop technology, the E63 AMG is a screamer, hitting 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds, and relatively economical, getting 16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

Though the 2013 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG only comes in a single trim level, it does carry several packages that add to this already outstanding sedan. The Driver Assistance package adds in DISTRONIC PLUS and PRE-SAFE braking to keep you out of an accident, active blind-spot assist to warn you of cars where you may not see them and active lane-keeping assist to keep you from drifting into the wrong lane. The Lane Tracking package adds in just the latter two features from the Driver Assistance package to keep you safe at a lesser price. Finally, the AMG Performance package bumps the engine up to 550 horsepower and 590 foot-pounds of torque, increases the top-speed limiter to 186 mph, adds in AMG sport suspension and performance steering wheel, and for extra styling, it adds in red brake calipers and a carbon-fiber engine cover.

Competition isn’t necessarily plentiful for the E63 AMG, but it is rather fierce. Starting things off is the Benz’s arch nemesis, the 2013 BMW M5, which comes standard with a 4.4-liter turbocharged V-8 engine with 560 horsepower, a 4.2-second 0-to-60 time and the a dual-clutch automated manual transmission. Next up is the 2013 Audi S6, which carries a 4.0-liter turbocharged V-8 engine with 420 horsepower, a 4.8-second 0-to-60 mpg time and a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission. The final competitor is the 2013 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec Sedan, which comes standard with a 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 429 horsepower, a 5.3-second 0-to-60 sprint and an eight speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode.

The 2013 E63 AMG only comes in a standard trim level and stands as Mercedes-Benz’s mid-size luxury performance sedan, just above the C-Class. On the outside, it is loaded with tons of premium luxury items. These exterior trimmings include AMG Adaptive Suspension to balance excellent handling with a comfortable ride, compound braking system to bring the large sedan to a stop quickly and quietly, AMG body styling and 19-inch 10-spoke alloy wheels for added exterior appeal, LED running lights and taillight for added safety, and a rear spoiler. Inside the cabin, the luxury continues with its standard leather seating, dual-zone automatic climate control keep everyone comfortable while a Harman/Kardon LOGIC7 surround sound system with a six-disc CD changer, Bluetooth audio streaming and a 10 GB hard drive keeps everyone entertained, and HomeLink adds the convenience of combining garage door opener remotes, security gate keys and home security remotes into one integrated package.
