AN extensive restyling has been carried out by Mercedes-AMG on its high performance E 63 S estate and saloon models which are due to arrive in the UK this autumn.

Featuring a new-look front dominated by a bold-looking grille and all-LED headlamps, the latest iterations also come with wider wheel arches to enhance aerodynamics.

Inside, the cars have a widescreen cockpit with the display screen flowing into the instrument panel, a new-look AMG Performance steering wheel and the latest Mercedes MBUX infotainment system.

The E 63 S has a 4.0-litre V8 twin turbo engine which gives the saloon a 0 to 60mph acceleration time of 3.4 seconds and a maximum ‘restricted' to 187.5mph.

The estate is a fraction slower through its nine-speed auto box to the 60 mark and tops out at 181mph.

Fuel economy is rated at 24mpg for both models with emissions of 267 and 271g/km at best respectively.

Other changes to the new model are at the back where the tail lights of the saloon have been given a flatter look while at the front both cars have a pronounced splitter below the grille.

New equipment on the inside to the cars see changes to the steering wheel which now has three double split spokes and haptic controls for the navigation and sound systems.

All models are four-wheel-drive and among the instrument display choices is a Supersport mode which has a central, round rev counter and horizontal displays presented in perspective to the left and right.

The driver can call up various special AMG displays such as engine data, a gear speed indicator, warm-up, set-up, G-meter and a racetimer.

Prices and full UK specification for the new E 63 S are still to be announced.
