2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 Top Speed Video at 187 MPH

The awesome 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 has more than 600 horsepower and a new Drift mode. What makes the Mercedes E63 so awesome is a new version of AMG’s hot 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8. This one has two twin-scroll turbos and cylinder deactivation for better gas mileage. We don’t know exactly what the EPA rating will be — that comes closer to launch — but we do know this car will be more efficient than the last one, which was rated at a paltry 15 city, 22 highway. The output rating is a head-thumping 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft for the S and 563 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque for the base E63.

A nine-speed multiclutch transmission and Mercedes’s new 4Matic system – 4Matic-plus – which is now fully variable and can send up to 50 percent of the power to the front wheels. The new system also has a coupling that disconnects the front axle for drift mode, but it can also send 100 percent of the power rearward when going flat out in a straight line, say, down a wide-open stretch of the Autobahn.

YouTuber, AutoTopNL, was given the key to the brute fromAffalterbach and wasted no time recording a high-speed run. A phone recording GPS-based speed sees the speedo run all the way up to 302 kilometers per hour. That translates to a little over 187 mph!
