2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 spy shots and video

Mercedes-Benz has shown us its new E-Class, but by the time the car reaches showrooms in the fall we should have had our first look at the high-performance version from Mercedes-AMG.

No, we’re not talking about the new E43.

We’re talking about the new E63 sledgehammer, which once again will be packing a twin-turbocharged V-8.

Here we see some prototypes that reveal the aggressive look the car will adopt. Key elements include the myriad of intakes in the front bumper, quad-exhaust tips at the rear and chunky alloy wheels and brakes at all four corners. The interior should be similar to what we see in the new E-Class albeit with unique AMG treatments thrown in.
