The 2013 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG has been spotted completely undisguised in Spain, giving us our first unrestricted look at the refreshed styling of the updated German super sedan.
The image, captured in Madrid, confirms the mid-life update for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class range will introduce radically reshaped headlights similar to those of the C-Class, moving away from the 'four eyes' twin headlamp assembly that has been a staple of the E-Class since 1995.
The updated model does not completely abandon the design element, however, integrating four L-shaped LED daytime running light fixtures into the headlights to retain the signature look.
Adding to the 2013 Mercedes-Benz E-Class’s new look is a prominent grille inspired by the Mercedes SL and SLK roadsters and a reshaped front bumper with larger, more aggressive, black air intakes.
The profile of the new E-Class is significantly sleeker than the outgoing model, with the chubby Ponton-style rear wheel arches making way for a tighter, more conventional design.
The rear end also gets a fresh new look thanks to a reworked bumper and diffuser and new tail-light lenses.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will make its international debut at the 2013 Detroit motor show in January. The updated E-Class family, including the high-performance E63 AMG variants, is scheduled to go on sale in Australia in the second half of 2013.
