G-Energy’s 789 HP Mercedes-AMG E63 S Mixes Understatement With Absurd Efficiency


Earlier this 12 months, Brabus launched an influence equipment that took the Mercedes-AMG E63 S to nearly hypercar-levels of efficiency. 

G-Energy’s “reply” an analogous improve that solves the E63 S’ “energy deficit”: are you able to think about having to reside with “solely” 612 PS (603 hp) and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft) at your disposal? Joking apart, the tuner didn’t should look too far to discover a Brabus-rivaling improve.

That’s as a result of they’ve been providing a severe energy equipment for Mercedes-AMG’s 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 for fairly some time now. Launched within the C63 S in October, the improve boosts the eight-cylinder engine by 188 PS (185 hp) and 150 Nm (111 lb-ft) to a powerful 800 PS (789 hp) and 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque.

The pumped-up E63 S will shoot to 100 km/h from a standstill in simply 3.1 seconds earlier than maxing out at greater than 300 km/h (186 mph). In an effort to obtain these important energy and torque beneficial properties, G-Energy extensively modified the engine’s {hardware} and software program. Liable for the digital tuning is the Efficiency Software program V3, which remaps the ECU whereas leaving the engine safety capabilities and diagnostic capabilities unaffected.

The important thing {hardware} improve is the modification of the turbochargers, which embrace CNC-machine circumstances and aero-optimized turbine wheels. Because of this, G-Energy claims the turbos “ship incomparably higher efficiency in comparison with the sequence elements.” Different adjustments include the addition of stainless-steel downpipes (together with a catalytic converter) and a chrome steel exhaust system.

Rounding off the tuned Merc, which you’ll take a look at within the following video, is a set of 21-inch Hurricane RR alloys with a jet black diamond end. In all different respects, the E63 S seems fairly understated and options solely minor adjustments such because the black window frames, mirror caps and boot lid spoiler and the black badging.
