Performance in the 2018 AMG E 63

As previously stated, these two cars are smothered in performance. However, where the 550i glows, the AMG E 63 shines. It has an extra gear (nine speeds compared to eight speeds in the 550i), which means gear shifting is smoother and efficiency is increased a bit. The AMG E 63 gets a jaw-dropping 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, which blows its competitor out of the water. This is thanks in part to the handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine. When you put it all together, it amounts to the AMG E 63 going from 0 to 60 mph in a lightning-fast 3.4 seconds. Let’s just say that if you’re looking to race, this is definitely the sedan you want on your side.
