The updated 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S has been unveiled ahead of an Australian debut towards the end of this year.
Power continues to come from the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 450kW and 850Nm, it’s matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission that sends drive to AMG’s 4Matic+ permanent all-wheel drive system.
According to AMG, the E63 S can hit 100km/h from a standstill in a claimed 3.4 seconds, making it a whisker slower than the rival BMW M5 Competition.
Changes to the exterior include a tweaked bumper with a larger centre air intake, an updated AMG grille with vertical louvres and reshaped LED headlights.
There’s also a new front splitter that reduces lift at the front axle, 20-inch AMG wheels, a revised rear bumper and diffuser, flatter tail-lights, and chrome trapezoidal twin tailpipes.
On the inside, buyers get the MBUX infotainment system displayed on two 12.25-inch screens with AMG-specific functions and the new AMG steering wheel.
Further equipment highlights include AMG’s air suspension with adjustable damping, speed-sensitive steering, AMG Dynamic Select drive modes, dynamic engine mounts and red brake calipers.
The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S is set to arrive locally towards the end of 2020, full specifications and pricing will be announced closer to the launch date.
