Originally manufactured exclusively as a range of executive cars, the E-Class first made its debut in 1953 and has been marketed worldwide across five generations. The generation of E-class featured here today started reaching owners in 2017. At the time, it was the most technologically advanced E that Merc had ever produced. The fifth-generation was a great success, winning multiple plaudits from automotive publications. This specific example, which is available in California, is the high-performance E63 AMG S Edition 1, and more specifically, the S213 station wagon. It’s ideal for enthusiasts who enjoy the perfect blend of excitement, practicality, and luxury, while the exclusive Edition 1 Package P88 (only available in the first production year) was a $22,000 option when new.
This dealer-maintained 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class AMG S Edition 1 comes in Mercedes’ exclusive Designo Night Black Magno exterior paint and has all the trademarks of an aggressive German automobile. It sports a huge front grille and air intakes, distinctive bullet-shaped headlights, striking Mercedes-Benz logo, enhanced aerodynamics, and dual AMG exhausts. The E63 AMG S features blacked-out split AMG 7-spoke rims with wheel locking bolts. The interior is just as impressive as the exterior. Inside is an AMG Nappa leather interior with AMG carbon fiber trim working together harmoniously to give you that luxurious yet track-ready feel. Tucking you in are black AMG Nappa leather bucket seats with beautiful contrasting yellow stitching as well as black seatbelts and a Designo black Dinamica headliner and a 115v power outlet.
The symphony of crackles and rumbles made by the M177 Bi-turbo 4L V-8 is the AMG S’ calling card. The E63 S wagon featured produces just over 600bhp. With that much power, control is happily afforded by the 4MATIC+ transmission for excellent, on-rails road-holding whatever the weather.
