2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG revealed ahead of schedule

If you’ve been flipping through all the car sites in your RSS reader, you’ve probably noticed many European publications posting all the images and details on the new 2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG. Yeah – that’s called an embargo leak. So without further ado – we now present the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG prior to its New York Auto Show debut next week.

Completely redesigned and based on the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the new E63 AMG is more aggressive than ever before with improved performance, handling and advanced technology inspired by its sibling – the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG.

So let’s get down to what you all really want to know. Power comes from AMG’s 6.3L V8 engine that produces 518-hp and a peak torque of 465 lb-ft. Mated to AMG’s SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports transmission the 2010 E63 AMG can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds (BMW M5 and new Jaguar XFR reaching 60-mph in 4.5 seconds and 4.7 seconds) with a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited).
