Stock W212 E63 AMG S 4Matic 1/4 mile run - email@example.com
For those predicting the AMG S models would annihilate the competition this 1/4 mile run may be a bit sobering. A bone stock W212 E63 AMG S which of course has all wheel drive 4Matic as standard hit the PBIR (Palm Beach International Raceway) dragstrip in Florida. The result? An 11.8 @ 119.5 1/4 mile run. That is actually about what it should run considering a stock pre-facelift rear wheel drive E63 AMG on the same drag strip ran 12.0 @ 116
The heft of the E63 due to the addition of 4Matic clearly is not helping its trap speed. MotorTrend got a 4511 pound curb weight for the E63 AMG S
. When they compared it to the M5 with the Competition Package
the M5 showed it is lighter and faster.
An 11.8 @ 119.5 is fast for a luxury sedan by any stretch but it appears the BMW M5/M6 are both ahead of the Mercedes E63/CLS63 AMG at least when it comes to stock for stock performance. The Audi RS7 also is not giving up anything performance wise.
