MERCEDES HAS GIVEN the E63 AMG saloon and estate a refresh for 2013.

The most obvious changes are on the outside, with the introduction of the new ‘twin blade’ grille, ‘A-Wing’ front splitter and redesigned bumper and headlights as already seen on the standard E-Class. At the rear there is also a new bumper, diffuser and tailpipes.

Under the skin the new E63 has an upgraded version of the 5.5 litre twin-turbocharged V8 which now produces 548bhp and 531lb ft torque in standard form and a whopping 577bhp 590lb ft in new S trim.

The S model replaces the AMG Performance Package and also comes with a mechanical limited-slip differential and optional ceramic brakes.

The power hike puts the E63 ahead of rivals like the BMW M5 and new Jaguar XFR-S and means that, in S trim, the E63 saloon will now get from 0-62mph in just 3.6 seconds, while the estate takes 3.7. The standard AMG manages the sprint in 4.2 seconds, while both cars have a limited top speed of 155mph.
