The new Mercedes-AMG E63 S has already proved its mind-blowing performance by going against some very fast machines on the drag strip, thanks to its staggering output of 612PS (604hp) and 850Nm (627lb-ft) of torque that's good enough for a 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint in just 3.5sec.
That kind of performance has rightfully granted the range-topping E-Class the super saloon title. Heck, it's so fast that the Estate version has become the fastest station wagon to lap the Nurburgring, with a time of 7 minutes and 45:19 seconds and reaching speeds of up to 270km/h (168mph).
The following video takes us not on the 'Ring but the Autobahn for a very fast drive. After a few attempts, the E63 S eventually passed the 300 km/h mark, hitting 307km/h (191mph).
Now, we're awaiting to see who'll come up first with the Mercedes-AMG E63 S pinned against the all-new BMW M5, its natural rival and the new challenger to the throne.
