AMG E-Class Coupe
The straight six is back. Straight from the future.
AMG E 53 COUPE
There's no feeling quite like opening up an AMG coupe. Starting with the industry-advancing innovation of the E-Class, Mercedes-AMG accelerates the E 53 Coupe into a new generation of performance. The sensation has never been so sensational.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two automotive engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, as the performance division of Mercedes-Benz, AMG continues to create victory on the track and desire on the streets of the world. Every Mercedes-AMG vehicle is the product of craftsmen, designers and engineers who live to test limits, and for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
A Mercedes-AMG engine only starts with the state of the art. From there, everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. A new generation of performance is electrifiied, much like the Formula 1® championship-winning AMG racecars.
Nine speeds, to keep all the revs in range
The AMG SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed transmission has a ratio for every scenario, from takeoff to top end. Along with shift paddles for manual control and multiple modes, its performance technology quickens gear changes and allows direct multi-gear downshifts.
Turbocharged, and electrically charged
A twin-scroll turbo plus an electric auxiliary compressor pump up the high-tech inline-6 to 429 peak hp and 0-60 in just 4.3 seconds. An electric EQ Boost Integrated Starter-Generator can add up to 21 of its own horsepower. **
A torrent of torque, meticulously metered
AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive precisely apportions the engine's torque to the wheels that can use it best. From a 50/50 split to 100% rear-wheel drive, it can make takeoffs quicker, cornering more nimble, and control more confident on a variety of surfaces. 
Multiple modes, for all your driving moods
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you vary the shifting, handling and more with the touch of a single console button. From Slippery to Sport+, there's a driving program to suit most any situation. There's even a reconfigurable Individual mode. The new AMG DRIVE UNIT option adds controls to the steering wheel.
Surefooted stopping, symphonic sounds
Substantial 14.6-inch front brakes feature perforated discs and 4-piston calipers. Whether accelerating or decelerating, the AMG Sport Exhaust turns the powertrain into a rousing soundtrack. With multimode internal flaps, the available AMG Performance Exhaust lets you play even stronger crescendos.
Poise under pressure, agility from the air
The AMG Sport Suspension based on AIR BODY CONTROL turns air into agility. It lowers at speed. It responds in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. And while it's tenacious in turns or on the track, it's calm and composed on your commute.
Custom-tailoring you can keep customizing
Your personalization options only start with eight upholsteries and nine cabin trims. Standard LED ambient lighting offers 64 colors to select and even combine, and the available multicontour front seats can offer an invigorating massage.
Behind the wheel, you're ahead of the curve
The standard 12.3-inch digital instrument panel offers exclusive AMG readouts in three reconfigurable layouts. The AMG Performance steering wheel integrates Touch Control Buttons and shift paddles, with a new AMG DRIVE UNIT option adding performance mode controls. Style options let you pair its Nappa leather trim with grippy DINAMICA or black piano lacquer.
Eye-catching style that eludes the wind
A deep front apron is aerodynamically optimized, aggressively sculpted. And from the twin-blade AMG grille and twin-power-dome hood to the chiseled rear valence, the E 53's AMG performance heritage comes to life on every surface of the body, or the road.
Distinctive style, distinguishing details
Standard 19-inch AMG® wheels, or any of six 20-inch options, take a confident stance on handling. Exclusive AMG details can be further intensified with two styling options: the gloss back accents of the Night Package, and elements crafted from genuine carbon fiber.
