Mercedes-Benz engineers are working hard to develop the refreshed E63 sedan and car at the Nurburgring before snowfall halts the development of Green Hell for this year. Check out the video above and the one below to see camouflage machines.
Both vehicles carry camouflage covers over the front and rear. The nose has a revised fascia that appears more angular than a piece of mouthpiece on the current model. Large inlets should leave plenty of air in the engine bay. These cars still do not have the Panamericana grille with vertical ribs, but this element should be on the production model. The new headlights have sharper edges than the lamps of the existing vehicle.
At the back, the changes are harder to see. The new bulbs seem to be in the midst of changes. The four, trapezoidal exhaust tips are still an attractive part of the rear.
No interior photos yet, but the E-Class reportedly gets an updated infotainment system that should better match the look of the latest Mercedes models.
The revised E63 should retain the Mercedes-AMG's twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. It currently makes 603 horsepower (450 kW) but has room to boost production, as the mill produces 630 hp (470 kW) for the GT 63 S Four-Door Coupe. By comparison, the Audi RS6 Avant is the primary competitor of the E63 wagon segment, and the latest version of the "Four Rings" packs 591 horsepower (441 kW) from a 4.0-liter hybrid-assisted dual-turbo 4.0-liter V8.
The refreshed E63, plus the rest of the E-Class lineup, is due to debut in 2020 and be on sale at least in some markets before the end of that year.
