Top Shelf: Mercedes-AMG 2018 E63-S

It needs to be said that we don’t advocate racing illegally, or any kind of speedy or reckless driving of any kind. But some cars just make you want to burn rubber and let loose a little bit. They have capabilities that we never push because there are things like speed limits and everything, but it’s still cool to know that if you really wanted to, you could do some pretty awesome things in your vehicle. 

Ahead of their debut at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 and E63 S were unveiled, the latter representing the fastest E-Class ever made. Generating 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque, the mid-sized four-door packs a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that allows it to compete with any number of performance coupes on the market today. 

The S version leaps from 0-60 mph in just 3.3 seconds before reaching a top speed of 186 mph. Its standard E63 counterpart has 563 hp and 553 lb-ft on tap, enabling a sprint time of 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. Both versions have 4MATIC+ permanent all-wheel-drive, and the S variant also features Race and Drift modes. Following their debut in L.A., the cars will hit showrooms in the summer of 2017. Not sure if you’re impressed, but we are. Keep an eye out for these.
