The Mercedes-Benz E-Class (W212 and S212) series represent the fourth-generation of the E-Class range with the E63 AMG saloon unveiled at the 2009 New York International Motor Show. The new performance version of the E-Class is fitted with the same powertrain as the SL63 AMG and the SPEEDSHIFT MCT 7-speed sports automatic transmission with four driver-selectable modes including a fully manual mode. Similar to the C63 AMG, the new E63 is more extensively modified than before with a new, wider front axle, heavily revised suspension and more distinct body panels. In 2011, the 6.2-litre, V8 was replaced by a twin-turbo version of the 5.5-litre, V8 available in the E500/E550 power remained the same at 518bhp as the earlier, naturally aspirated 6.2-litre engine.
Having been registered on 31st May, 2012, this beautiful one owner E63 AMG is in immaculate condition and has covered only 4,507 miles in five years. Always kept in a dehumidified environment and appearing to have never to have been used in inclement weather, this Mercedes-Benz has formed part of a huge private car collection. The Mocha Black paintwork is unmarked and the interior still has a ‘new car’ smell to it. The specification of this Mercedes-Benz is superb and includes dynamic contour front seats, TV tuner, rear entertainment system and panoramic sunroof. The condition of this example has to be seen to be fully appreciated, it is hard to think this car is five years old when you sit in it and look at the odometer. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 1st October, 2018 together with the original service books and literature pack; realistically estimated given the cost when new was over £85,000.
