If you find yourself late for work on a daily basis, maybe you need something new. Everyone got mad when Mercedes and AMG decided to keep the 63 designation, even though the engines were no longer 6.3 liters., but I don’t hear anyone complaining these days. In the name of fuel economy, the 5.5-liter engines are being euthanized and being replaced by a 4.0-liter twin turbo V8. Found in everything from the AMG GT S to the 4×4 Squared, this versatile creation can suit any need. Reverse flow heads shoot their exhaust to a pair of turbos mounted in the engine’s valley. They respond instantly to changes in throttle, which is how the new E63 S offers 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque.

If you are looking for the fastest cars in Europe, our friends at AutoTopNL specializes in pushing every car to its limits on the Autobahn. Using launch control to get on the highway is just silly, and nobody at duPont REGISTRY would ever do so….But if we did it would be wide open throttle until the speedometer is pegged. Listen to the audio as the driver hits 60 mph in 3.3 seconds. As the 9-speed automatic approaches top speed it sounds like the engineers placed the top speed gear right at peak engine power. The last shift bumps the speedometer to a ludicrous number and lowers RPM to a happy spot. AMG has attention to detail that remains unmatched in the gear ratio department. Turn up your audio and stay with us for more wild Autobahn footage.
