Mercedes-AMG E-Class Coupe
There's no feeling quite like opening up an AMG coupe. The E 53 wraps the industry-advancing innovation of the E-Class with a powertrain that brings classic muscle into the future.
A race that knows no finish line.
In an old mill in 1967, two engineers with a passion for motorsports began turning Mercedes-Benz sedans into winning racecars. Today, 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, engineers and racers who live for a singular goal: Driving Performance.
Born to perform, developed to outperform
A Mercedes-AMG engine starts with the state of the art. Everything from fuel pressure to exhaust routing is developed to quicken, heighten and intensify its response, and yours. From patented processes to cut friction to a new generation of electrified performance, AMG technology is fueled by its racing success.
A twin-scroll turbo plus an electric auxiliary compressor pump up the high-tech inline-6 to 429 hp, 384 lb-ft, and 0-60 in just 4.3 seconds. Electric EQ Boost can add 21 hp of its own. The AMG SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9-speed offers multiple modes and multigear downshifts. Disclaimer
AMG DYNAMIC SELECT lets you fine-tune your car's performance via controls on the console or the standard steering-wheel AMG DRIVE UNIT. Five driving modes, one customizable, adapt the throttle, shifting, chassis and more from Slippery to Sport+.
Rouse to the occasion
The AMG Sport Exhaust turns the rise and ebb of rpm into a rousing soundtrack. With multimode internal flaps, the available AMG Performance Exhaust lets you heighten the crescendos, or tone them down.
Cross-trained by a team of champions
An AMG E-Class benefits from 50-plus years of racing victory through the direct involvement of the same teams in its development. From chassis setups to the fine-tuning of its controls, AMG performance is defined by orchestrated, integrated teamwork.
Fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ can send torque to the wheels that can best turn traction into action. From launch grip to cornering, 4MATIC+ can go from 50/50 front/rear, up to 100% RWD. Disclaimer
AMG Performance brakes feature substantial, perforated and ventilated 14.6-inch front discs with beefy 4-piston calipers. Disclaimer
Based on AIR BODY CONTROL, the AMG Sport Suspension turns pressurized air into pure agility. It can adapt in milliseconds to changing roads, loads, and the modes of AMG DYNAMIC SELECT. It's self-lowering, self-leveling, and equal parts tenacity and composure.
Panoramic vision, inside and out.
Within the unimpeded vistas of its pillarless design, the E 53 Coupe cockpit presents driving information via widescreen displays and a wide array of intuitive touch and voice controls.
The lines of a fast family
Vertical grille bars evoke a deep racing legacy. A deep front apron, rear spoiler, and sleek LED lighting pierce the future. The E 53's AMG performance heritage shines on every surface of its body, or the road.
Tailored by technology
Dual 12.3-inch screens include a reconfigurable digital instrument panel with exclusive AMG performance readouts. Available AMG Track Pace lets you graph your skills on the central touchscreen.
Outgoing, and ongoing
Expressive style starts with a range of leathers and nine trim options. And you can tailor the cabin to suit your mood, over and over, with 64-color LED ambient lighting, plus available multicontour front seats.
A higher sense of touch
Offered in three finishes, the AMG Performance steering wheel features a new twin-spoke design with capacitive touch controls. The standard AMG DRIVE UNIT puts performance controls right on the wheel.
Standard 19-inch AMG® wheels, or any of four 20-inch options, take a confident stance on handling. Wider rear wheels enhance grip at launch, with front wheels sized for crisp steering feedback. Disclaimer
Details of distinction
AMG Carbon Fiber and Night Packages further embolden the E 53 Coupe. A new dark-tinted grille option deepens the blackout effect of the Night Package.
