    • Facelifted 2014 W212 E63 AMG revealed early and it looks good

      Here is a leak revealing the official design of the upcoming facelifted 2014 E63 AMG. As previously reported, the 2014 E63 AMG facelift will get an uprated M157 Twin Turbo 5.5 liter V8 with 575 horsepower mated to an all wheel drive driveline. No dual clutch transmission, but power is routed through an automatic. The facelift itself as leaked out here in official photos definitely looks far more aggressive than the standard W212 E-Class facelift which looked a bit too mild.

      In E63 AMG trim, the facelift looks much better. The grill and bumper design clearly giving the car a very aggressive look. Unfortunately, only two pictures depicting the the front of the car were leaked out but expect much more at the official reveal coming at the Detroit Auto Show later this month.

        So probably tapping 10's with just a tune. That's pretty ridiculous.

        It already hits 10's with a tune so definitely.

        Man, I still feel like the outgoing E-class' front fascia looks new. Times are changing too fast!

        I wonder if history will repeat itself and they will go back to the oval shaped headlights? I always have that etched into my head as the classic Benz.

        I agree with you on this.

        Auto, all wheel drive, bigger engine... just too easy from a stoplight.

        Got a chance to drive the F10 M5... the weight kills what is otherwise an excellent car. It really doesn't feel fast for 560 HP; I know it would smoke my 335i but it sure as hell doesn't feel like it. I can imagine this is going to be very similar... There are very many obvious pros to having a light car.

        Not thrilled with the rear lights but the front is beautiful. The grill and bumper make it.

        Just place your order with your dealer. It won't be out until toward the end of the year.
