Design and equipment: Effortless superiority with decidedly sporty character

Oct 12, 2009
  • AMG bodystyling for looks which reflect the dynamism of the brand
  • AMG 18 or 19-inch light-alloy wheels
  • Sporty and high-grade interior ambience
  • AMG DRIVE UNIT for individualised set-up
The new Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG Estate fulfils its role as the powerful, top-of-the-line E-Class model with effortless superiority. The exterior design conveys presence, precision and typical Mercedes dynamism. Functional sportiness, top quality and consummate business class comfort combine in the interior. In short: this high-performance estate comes across as sporty without being showy. Dominant, masculine, dynamic – take a look at the E 63 AMG Estate and you instantly get a sense of these three attributes, not least thanks to the distinctive front wings: they are 17 millimetres wider on each side to accommodate the new front axle with its greater track width and the 255/40 front tyres.
The striking AMG front apron is an integral part of the characteristic AMG bodystyling. A central air intake and two side apertures provide an efficient supply of fresh air to the cooling module placed behind. The side air vents in the front apron serve‑ to expel the hot air from the oil coolers. The AMG-specific LED daytime driving lights are another eye-catching detail. In conjunction with the optional Intelligent Light System, the E 63 AMGEstate is equipped with tinted bi-xenon main headlamps.
From the side, the eye is drawn to the 18 or 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels as well as the "6.3 AMG" lettering integrated stylishly into the wings; this lettering is testimony to the powerful eight-cylinder powerpack under the bonnet. The side sill panels pick up the sweeping line of the spoiler edges on the front apron, extending it through to the AMG rear apron – the same line also emphasises the estate's width: the two newly designed chrome-plated twin tailpipes of the AMG sports exhaust system, the characteristically black insert and the overlying light-catching contour are further visual highlights of the muscular rear section.
Sporty and high-grade interior ambience
Luxurious quality, high-grade materials, consummate business class comfort combined with a noticeable degree of dynamism and sportiness – these are the essential attributes of the interior of the E 63 AMG Estate. Dedicated, newly
developed electrically adjustable and heated sports seats with AMG badges await the driver and front passenger. All the seats, armrests and door centre panels are trimmed in exquisite leather, the seat centre panels with perforated leather. Three different appointment colours are available: black, mocha brown/almond beige and reef grey/alpaca grey. The perfect finishing touch comes courtesy of the black ash wood trim.
The sports steering wheel in a four-spoke design with a 385-millimetre rim is trimmed with perforated leather in the specially moulded grip areas. Up and down gear selection can be performed manually by means of the aluminium shift paddles.
AMG main menu and AMG DRIVE UNIT
Behind the steering wheel lies the equally new instrument cluster with a 320 km/h speedometer scale and silver-coloured backplate. The five classic dial instruments come with a new look red needles and all-new lettering. AMG lettering adorns the speedometer while "6.3 V8" lettering adds a special touch to the rev counter. The AMGmain menu, which is integrated into the central display of the speedometer, can be operated conveniently using the multifunction buttons on the sports steering wheel. The three modes "Warm Up", "Set Up" and "RACE" keep the driver well
informed: "Warm Up" indicates the engine oil and coolant temperature, "Set Up" indicates the current ESP® mode, the suspension setting – "Comfort", "Sport" or "Sport Plus" – and the transmission mode – "C", "S", "S+" or "M". In "RACE" the RACETIMER is ready; this allows the driver to record lap times on private racing circuits.
The AMG DRIVE UNIT, which is familiar from the SL 63 AMG, is angled towards the driver and enables individual settings to be selected for the MCT sports transmission, the ESP® functions, the suspension set-up and the AMG drive modes. A completely new feature for the DRIVE UNITcomes in the shape of the E-SELECT selector lever in the centre console. The driver can shift directly between R, N and D simply by nudging the lever, all thanks to drive-by-wire technology. Once the engine is turned off, the parking lock is activated automatically; it can also be engaged by lightly pressing the P button in front of the selector‑lever.
