11 Mercedes- AMG E63

On all fours and ready to maul M5

AMG is boasting the new E63 as the biggest step forward in the modelís history. The current 5.5-litre twinturbo V8 will make way for AMGís new 4.0-litre unit, with outputs set to lift slightly over the current carís 430kW and 800Nm.

A nine-speed MCT automatic transmission will handle the grunt and feed it to all four wheels for the first time in right-hand drive. If that sounds a bit tame, consider that hitting 100km/h will take just 3.5sec and that AMG boss Tobias Moers promises itíll drift like a champion. 100k AM
