Sometimes it can be a little more. For Mercedes vehicles, the gym in Affalterbach offers that certain bit more. The most recent training object is the E-Class.

"The best or nothing", Gottlieb Daimler is said to have once said and thus contributed a good deal to the worldwide reputation of the brand today. But if someone goes down and the supposedly best refined again? Then the best automobile comes with great certainty from the small town of Affalterbach, where the gym, which belongs to Mercedes-Benz, is based on the name AMG. There the Stuttgart premium cars do not necessarily get the finishing touches, but certainly more than a handful of additional horses planted under the hood.
The latest optimization object is the E-Class from Mercedes-Benz, which is trained with care in the small Swabian community and in September at prices of 105.791 euros when E 63 AMG comes to the streets. Your at least 386 kW/525 hp delight the performance-conscious customer who is looking.
The core of the athlete in the dark suit is the strong heart, a V8 petrol engine with 5.5 liter displacement, which has already been done in the CLS, the S-Class and in the SLS of AMG service. The eight -cylinder works with two turbochargers, they give him the staying power and help it to a torque tip of impressive 700 Newton meters, which between 1.750 and 5.000 rpm. The E-AMG needs 4.3 seconds for the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h, its top speed is limited to 250 km/h. AMG boss Ola Kallenius is particularly pleased that despite all the performance superlatives compared to the predecessor model by 22 percent to 9.8 liters. "We show here that a performance vehicle does not have to be a fuel eater," says the not old Swede at all. "Performance" is his favorite term anyway when it comes to the AMG models. The car would behave just as well on the board car park as on the north loop of the Nurburgring.
The consumption reduction succeeds with the help of a start-stop system that works sensitively and spontaneously in combination with the seven-speed automatic. In addition, radiation -guided direct injection and recovery of brake energy help the generator to save fuel.
In order to make the AMG reading of the E-Class even sharper, the performance package for 8 is also required.306 euros surcharge. This brings the decisive tenths of a second in acceleration, the increase in performance to 410 kW/575 hp and 800 Nm at 2000/min shortens the standard sprint to 4.2 seconds, top speed and consumption do not change. The T -model, which is also offered as an AMG version, is 0.1 seconds slower in the standard sprint and consumes 0.2 liters of fuel more per 100 kilometers. 108.409 is the price for the fast combination.
But it remains the option for Speedkings, Duckrottling, the liberation of the super athlete from the electronic yoke of the speed simulation. 300 km/h top speed 3.215 euros extra, which includes a driver course and the careful instruction of the owner in the fact that even a three -lane motorway can become very narrow at this pace.
Beyond the reserved parking spaces of the management, the E 63 AMG is muscular and game. It was not the Nurburgring north loop that was presented for test drives, but at least the race track Paul Ricard/Le Castellet near Marseille. The V8 booms and barks into every curve, as if it were important to move the sleepy residents of Provence to admire the dragon ride.
The electronics automatically give intermediate gas when the automatic switches the gears down when braking the bends. The bolide shoots at the next with a fat tube, sheer performance drives it ahead despite the not very low own weight of 1.8 tons. Much of the load compensates for the finely coordinated electromechanical steering, it conveys perfect feel for the road and traction, also gives the necessary safety when the car with a reduced ESP insert (in the most behavior of three levels), the toughest damper setting (sports+) and Maximum pace rushes around the curves.
If you want to slim down the E 63 AMG for a few kilograms, you have to dig deep into your pocket again. The brake system with ceramic slices reduces the weight of the delay system by 40 percent, beneficial relief and, above all, an increase in the exclusivity of the fast E-class versions. And this is particularly popular with the solvent customers of the AMG models.
