Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has launched the new fully imported (CBU) facelift Mercedes-AMG E 63 S 4MATIC+, following the launch of the facelift E 200 Avantgarde and E 300 AMG Line recently. Prices start from RM 1,118,888, inclusive of 10% SST exemptions (instead of 50%), accompanied by a 4-year warranty.
- Engine: 4.0-litre twin turbo V8
- Transmission: 9-speed AMG Speedshift MCT
- Drivetrain: All-wheel Drive
- Max Power: 612 hp
- Max Torque: 850 Nm
- 0 to 100 km/h: 3.4 seconds
- Top Speed: 300 km/h
Interestingly, for about RM100k more than the one launched in 2017, there is no increase in output or improvement in performance. The 0 to 100 km/h time and output remain the same although its top speed is rated at 300 km/h, suggesting that there is no 250 km/h limit to the top speed.
Unlike the standard E-Class models, the E 63 S gets the typical Panamericana grille, quad exhaust tailpipes, and a prominent rear spoiler.

The steering design on the E 63 S is similar to the one in the E 300 AMG Line but with yellow stitching and mixed materials – leather and microfibre. The sound system of choice is Burmester, operated through the standard dual display setup.

For driver assistance and safety, the E 63 S comes with a surround-view monitor, autonomous emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist.
