AWD with RWD switching. Now that's a damn clever idea and must have taken some serious technical know how. Hopefully Audi will introduce a S4 Quattro with RWD switching as well.

Was beginning to look like a one man band jobbie.

But on your point yes very smart.

Watch the in-depth Shmee vid to see what it's all about.

Monstrous Mercedes-AMG E63 S now available in SA

The Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic+, the most powerful E-Class yet, is now available to order locally.

This E63 S will feature four-wheel drive for the first time in the car's lineage. The price of this madness? R1 868 400.

Mercedes South Africa said that it has no plans to bring the 'lesser' E63 4Matic+ to the country.

450kW. Boom!

With the new generation of the E63 S 4Matic+, Mercedes-AMG aims to take the driving limits of the performance sedan to a completely new level. The vehicle's beating heart is a powerful 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine

The E63 S 4Matic+ achieves a new peak power of 450kW. This makes the V8 the most powerful engine to have ever been installed in an E-Class. At the same time, says Merc, thanks to the AMG cylinder management intelligent cylinder shut-off system, it has been possible to increase the efficiency of the engine significantly.

By accelerating from 0 to 100km/h in 3.4 seconds, the new executive sedan is also one of the fastest - if not the fastest - in its class.

The AMG Performance 4 Matic+ all-wheel drive is a completely new development combining various drive configurations in one. Merc says torque distribution on the front and rear axles is fully variable for the first time. The automaker also claims that this setup ensures optimum traction, whatever the road conditions.

A further highlight is the AMG Speedshift MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) nine-speed sports transmission; combined for the first time with a wet start-up clutch.

The Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4Matic+ is now officially available to order in South Africa, with a starting price of R1 868 400.

Billed as the “most powerful E‑Class of all time”, the E63 S slots in at the very summit of the local range, positioned above the 295 kW E43 (which, for the record, is currently priced at R1 174 008).

The all-wheel drive E63 S employs a 4,0‑litre V8 biturbo engine (linked to a 9‑speed sports transmission) worth a whopping 450 kW and 850 N.m. That means it’s good for a claimed zero to 100 km/h sprint of just 3,4 seconds.

Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4MATIC+ to Order in SA

Mercedes-AMG is taking orders for the E63 S 4MATIC+ in South Africa!

If you have been considering whether or not to buy the Mercedes-AMG E63 S 4MATIC+, now is the time to get your act together. The AMG E63 S is due to arrive in South Africa in July 2017 and order books for the potent new model are open.

With the most powerful engine ever to live under the bonnet of an E-Class, the E63 S 4MATIC+ offers a scintillating 450 kW and 850 Nm of torque from its 4.0-litre V8 engine. Using a 9-speed sports multi-clutch transmission, the AMG E63 S 4MATIC will thunder from zero to 100 kph in 3.4 seconds and reach a limited top speed of 250 kph. The optional AMG Drivers Package will see that figure rise to 300 kph. The vehicle is also equipped with a Drift Mode that will loosen up the tail, on the track, of course.

The newly-developed AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system features fully variable torque distribution on the front and rear axles for the first time, providing optimum traction in all conditions.

We attended the launch of the E63 S 4MATIC+ in Portugal last year where we thrashed it on the Portimao circuit and found it to be hugely capable. Be sure to read our first drive report by clicking the link above!

If you want to be one of the first customers behind the wheel of the AMG E63 S 4MATIC+ when it arrives in South Africa in the next few months, get in touch with your nearest Mercedes-AMG dealership and make magic happen.

In the new E63 4Matic+ Estate and E63 S 4Matic+ Estate, Mercedes-AMG combines the brand's hallmark Driving Performance with high utility value and the intelligence of the E-Class. As in the Saloon, the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with an output of up to 450 kW (612 hp) and the fully variable AMG Performance 4Matic+ all-wheel drive deliver outstanding driving dynamics. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds sets a new record in this class. At the same time the engine is now even more efficient thanks to a cylinder deactivation system fitted as standard.

Like the Saloon, the E63 4Matic Estate and E63 S 4Matic+ Estate offer innovative drive technology and outstanding performance coupled with a unique design, exclusive appointments and the latest infotainment features for a wide range of connected multimedia applications.

The new Estate boasts even more agile response than its predecessor: the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT (Multi Clutch Technology) 9-s peed sports transmission is combined with a wet clutch. Another highlight is the new AMG Performance 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive system, which combines the advantages of various drive configurations. Torque distribution on the front and rear axles, which is fully variable for the first time, ensures optimum traction in all road conditions.

"The new AMG E63 Estate combines our brand's hallmark driving dynamics with high everyday practicality. It is not for nothing that the model has been a permanent fixture in the AMG portfolio for 40 years. The powerful engine and the intelligent all-wheel drive underpin our claim to always be at the forefront of development when it comes to performance," states Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Bragging wagon: Mercedes-AMG reveals E63 S Estate

Earlier this week, BMW took the wraps off its new 5 Series Touring. Not to be outdone, Mercedes-Benz has revealed its high-performance E63 and E63 S estates, which combine big power with big space.

The Mercedes-AMG E63 4Matic+ Estate and E63 S 4Matic+ Estate – to use their full, somewhat cumbersome monikers – both employ Affalterbach’s familiar 4,0-litre V8 biturbo engine, linked to a fully variable all-wheel-drive system.

So, just like the saloon equivalent, the high-performance wagon can be had in two states of tune: the E63 offering 420 kW/750 N.m (with a dash from standstill to 100 km/h in 3,6 seconds) and the E63 S putting out 450 kW/850 N.m (completing the obligatory sprint in 3,5 seconds).

The E63 Estate employs a mechanical rear-axle limited-slip differential, while the S model comes with an electronically controlled version. Both differentials reduce the slip on the inside wheel when cornering, without control interventions in the braking system. Furthermore, the E63 S is fitted with dynamic engine mounts.

Both models feature nine-speed automatic transmissions, electromechanical speed-sensitive sports steering and a high-performance compound braking system (although the S gains larger discs on the front axle). In addition, carbon ceramic brakes will also be available as an option.

The two performance estates will make their official debuts at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate revealed as fastest wagon yet

Reaching 62mph in just 3.5sec, the new AMG E63 Estate is 0.2sec faster than the Audi RS6 Avant; on sale in April

The new Mercedes-AMG E63 Estate is the world's quickest wagon, hitting 0-62mph in 3.5sec in range-topping S 4Matic+ guise.

It is 0.1sec slower than its saloon equivalent, while the fastest Audi RS6 Avant can cover the 0-62mph sprint in 3.7sec.

Making its global debut at the Geneva motor show, with UK sales starting in April, the E63 Estate will be sold in two versions: the E63 4Matic+ Estate and the E63 S 4Matic+ Estate, which are expected to cost around £80,000 and £90,000 respectively.

Using the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine as the saloon, the standard E63 4Matic+ has 563bhp and 552lb ft of torque. The most popular model, however, is expected to be the range-topping E 63 S 4Matic+, which has added turbocharger boost pressure and other power-enhancing tweaks, allowing it to produce 603bhp and 626lb ft.

The engine also has a cylinder deactivation system fitted as standard that helps to improve efficiency, claims Mercedes-AMG. In city driving, four cylinders are deactivated between 1000 and 3250rpm when the engine is switched to Comfort mode.

Similarly to other recent AMG models including the E63 saloon, the driver can pick from four driving modes: Comfort, Sport, Sport Plus and Individual. The S 4Matic+ version also comes with a fifth driving mode, Race, which is designed especially for driving on circuits.

The E63 Estate gets a nine-speed Speedshift MCT automatic gearbox, featuring a so-called wet start-off clutch and steering wheel-mounted shift paddles. Further driveline developments include a mechanical differential lock for the E63 4Matic+ and faster-acting electronic differential lock on the E 63 S 4Matic+.
Both models will be available only with AMG's Performance 4Matic+ four-wheel drive system, which offers fully variable distribution of drive between the front and rear wheels for the first time.
 The E63 4Matic+ Estate hits 0-62mph in 3.6sec, while the S 4Matic+ achieves the sprint in 3.5sec.

Despite having four-wheel drive, AMG offers a so-called Drift mode on the S 4Matic+. Activated by shift paddles, it prompts the four-wheel drive system to deliver drive exclusively to the rear wheels, remaining engaged until the driver deactivates it.

Echoing the E63 saloon, the model’s styling is intended to set it further apart from regular E-Class Estate models than previous generations. It is also 27mm wider, with the wheel arches accommodating the greater track width and larger wheels on the front axle.
 From launch, the S 4Matic+ will be available onlyas an 'Edition 1' special model. This has grey or black paintwork, AMG’s Night Package and light grey strips above the side sill panels. It also gets 20in wheels painted in matt black with gloss rims.

AMG boss Tobias Moers said: “The new AMG E 63 Estate combines our brand’s hallmark driving dynamics with high everyday practicality. It is not for nothing that the model has been a permanent fixture in the AMG portfolio for 40 years. The powerful engine and the intelligent all-wheel drive underpin our claim to always be at the forefront of development when it comes to performance.”

Mercedes-AMG E 63 Estate starts from £81,130

An Edition 1, based on the E 63 S, costs £108,780, and adds 20in wheels, the AMG Night package, AMG sports seats and carbonfibre trim. Options across the range include a £1000 AMG performance exhaust, a carbonfibre package for £3,370 and, for S and Edition 1 cars, £6,995 AMG high-performance ceramic brakes.

Using the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine as the saloon, the standard E 63 4Matic+ has 563bhp and 552lb ft of torque.

As the most practical E 63, the estate version offers boot capacity of 640 to 1820 litres, which Mercedes claims is the largest in the performance estate segment. Indeed, the Audi RS6 Avant offers less space with 565 to 1680 litres. The E 63's rear seat has a new feature: it can be positioned at a 10-degree steeper angle to create an extra 30 litres of boot volume. The seats can also be folded down electronically in a 40:20:40 split.

From launch, the S 4Matic+ will be available only as an 'Edition 1' special model. This has grey or black paintwork, AMG’s Night Package and light grey strips above the side sill panels. It also gets 20in wheels painted in matt black with gloss rims.
