At the beginning of next year, we’ll see, probably at the Detroit motor show, the most powerful version of the Mercedes E-Class, the E63 AMG. This version of the high-flying will be marketed entirely for the first time with the four-wheel-drive 4Matic, something which, by the way, just as you wouldn’t like it too much to the purists of the propulsion rear.
For those who like slide the rear at the exit of the curves and may feel disappointed with the new version of the E63 AMG, Mercedes has decided to introduce a “Drift” that acts on the distribution of pair that arrives to each axis. In this way, allows the delivery of up to 100% of the power to the rear wheels, which will lead to oversteer if you accelerate thoroughly.
this is Not a rumor, but a confirmation by Tobias Moers, chairman of AMG, the means Coach during the Paris motor show. The mode Drift has been seen for the first time in the Ford Focus RS and, as we already showed here in the form of video, has caused more of an annoyance to a driver who used it where and when you should not use it.
If the mode Drift only sends all the torque to the rear wheels, but doesn’t send more power to the outside wheel of the curve, will behave exactly the same way as you would do a version of propulsion. However, if it works like the Ford Focus RS, its operation will be more aggressive, as it delivers more torque on the outside wheel of the curve, which quickly produces the yaw of the train rear.
According to this same medium, the Mercedes E63 AMG will be available in two variants, whose main difference is the higher power in which incorporates the acronym S. In any case, it is expected that a is slightly below the barrier of 600 hp and the other slightly above, rivalling, as always, with the models sporting Audi RS6 and BMW M5.
