Merc pulls covers off E63 AMG
13 April 2006

Mercedes has followed up the launch of its mildly-facelifted E-Class with the E63 AMG, a more powerful successor to the E55.

The new car uses the same 6.3-litre V8 that's seen service in the CLK63 and CLS63 models. It produces a cool 507bhp and over 460lb ft of torque, allowing the E63 AMG to hit 60mph in 4.5sec, a tenth faster than the outgoing model. It will, of course, be limited to a maximum of 155mph.The E63 also includes the latest version of AMG's air suspension system, a seven-speed automatic transmission and a new design of 18in wheels.

Our Verdict

Ford S-Max 2006-2014

The Ford S-Max a highly accomplished car, but it needs to be cheaper when demand for MPVs is being eradicated by the high-riding SUV competition
