It won’t be long until the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will arrive at your local dealer. Press drives are happening as we speak so it’s more than time to look ahead and await the arrival of the ultimate performance E-Class: the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63.

2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 Spy Shots

The fresh AMG is now undergoing winter testing and already shows sporty features such as the quad-exhaust pipes and slightly aggressive exterior styling. The 2018 E63 AMG is expected to receive the 4.0-liter V8 biturbo with an increased output that goes well past the current 503 hp that both the AMG GT S and C63 S produce. What’s more is a dry sump lubrication system that will be fitted on the E63 AMG, something that both the AMG GT S and Mercedes-AMG C63 S don’t have.

The modifications to AMG’s V8 biturbo should translate to a 550 hp range output for the yet to be unveiled Mercedes-AMG E63, while the E63 S should even take it a level further. One thing is for sure, AMG boss Tobias Moers recently pointed out that it will take another few years to get the maximum potential out of the 4.0-liter V8, hinting that more exciting times are ahead.

Further rumors have indicated that the E63 is to receive Mercedes’ 4MATIC all-wheel drive system, while other rumors suggest that a RWD E63 may possibly be discontinued. Something that can be said with certainty is that the new generation Mercedes-AMG E63 will yet again raise the bar to another level.

  1. Just a little error if the E63 gets the dry sump it means that it will get the M178 that the AMG GT has WITH dry sump and the C63S AMG has the M177 with a wet sump ;)
