If you have ever driven, or even ridden in, a Mercedes Benz, chances are you got out of the car with a good impression. That experience might have even been favorable enough for you to associate the Mercedes brand with high end luxury. While that connotation is certainly justified and true, what if I told you the Tri-Star logo also stood for top-end performance? Add 3 letters to the end of a Mercedes car’s name, AMG, and it redefines the entire identity of the car. Case in point: the 2007 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG we have on our lot right now.
AMG is synonymous with performance, just as Mercedes is synonymous with luxury. The two together have been making cars with an unequivocal balance between speed and class since 1967. AMG cars have always been highly coveted, highly reliable, highly priced, and thus highly uncommon to find for sale used or pre-owned. This particular AMG E63 is no exception. A normal E-Class typically has between 250-350 hp, but with the AMG modifications this E63 puts out 507hp. With a 7 speed automatic naturally aspirated 6.2L V8, this rear wheel drive 2007 model tops out at 155 mph… but there is a catch: The American model has been equipped with an governor, so its actual top speed is well beyond that. In fact, you reach 155 mpg so quickly and with such ease in this AMG model it’s almost disappointing because you can feel the unreached potential waiting to be unleashed. Being an AMG, the Airmatic suspension is tuned for the track, but the legendarily smooth Mercedes ride for everyday driving is still achievable by engaging the cars “Comfort” mode with a touch of a button. Between having the “Comfort” mode engaged, and all the standard E-Class features like the plush leather and wood grained interior, the 12-way power adjustable heated seats, and the Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system, you might even forget you were in a car designed to be driven on the Autobahn.
It doesn’t take long driving one to tell that an AMG car is something special. An E-series Mercedes is great; an AMG E-series is phenomenal.
