Everything old is new again, and in the case of the Mercedes-AMG E53, the inline six-cylinder engine makes a triumphant return as the supporting act to the brand’s V8 superstars.
53 is the new 43, but it's closer to 63 in more than just numbers.
It might not have an S badge on the boot lid, but rest assured the Mercedes-AMG E63 is still a monster-powered four-door sedan capable of mixing it up with genuine supercars. It can also carry your family in sublime luxury.
This is the one we've been waiting for, the 600hp AWD Mercedes-AMG E63 S. The spec sheet reads like a best seller, but how does it translate to the road?
Some might see the E43 as a step below the E63, in performance terms. It is, in fact, a price alternative to the C63 - such is its blend of performance and equipment.
The new Mercedes-AMG E63 S moves the game forward, but does it retain the old car’s hot rod character too?
AMG’s success and the addition of more models means less exclusivity. Is the 2016 Mercedes-AMG E43 worthy of the Affalterbach name plate, or is it just a fast Benz?
