    The rapid acceleration of the 2018 W213 E63 AMG S from 0-300 kph - Very quick shifts plus beastly M177 exhaust note

    If you were worried about the new W213 generation E63 losing some muscle due to going to a 4.0 liter M177 V8 from the 5.5 liter M157 V8, just watch this video. The car just flat out squats off the line and the automatic transmission offers incredibly quick shifts.

    Maybe the lack of a dual clutch transmission is not a bad thing? It bangs through the gears in no time. Keep in mind the upcoming F90 M5 and next generation Audi RS6/RS7 will also use this same ZF sourced gearbox.

    Let's go over the acceleration figures. 0-100 kph or roughly 0-62 mph takes 3.24 seconds. It reaches 124 miles per hour in 10.83 seconds. That is about on par with an SLS AMG or C6 Z06.

    Past 124 miles per hour it slows down a bit but 0-300 kph in 33.56 seconds puts the car ahead of the original Mercedes-Benz SLR McLAren if you go by Auto Motor Und Sport numbers.

    Essentially, this looks to be a low 11 second car stock at around 125 miles per hour so. It might get into the 10's in the right conditions. We will have to wait for actual strip times which will vary based on the weather but rest assured, it's a quick car.
