The 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 and the BMW M5 are both vehicles that were based on its predecessors but they do come with quite a lot of improvements.
The latest E63 now comes with an addition of a Drift Mode. All the driver needs to do is to pull both shift paddles simultaneously with the Race mode on and the ESP turned off. This will turn the vehicle into a rear-wheel-drive.
Under the hood, the standard version gets a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing a 563 horsepower with 553 lb-ft torque and it can reach 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds, marking a top speed of 155 mph.
There is also an addition of air suspensions and wider front fenders to accommodate the Michelin’s new Pilot Sport 4 S tires.
On the other hand, the BMW M5 will be coming with an all-wheel-drive system which can produce up to 600 horsepower and 500 lb-ft torque.
This is mainly due to its usage of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, according to Sven Arens, product expert. It is expected to reach a 0-60 mph in four seconds.
The BMW engineers cited the all-wheel-drive system as a necessary to successfully manage its increasing power from the modern performance engines.
Expect to see both the latest Mercedes-AMG E63 and the BMW M5 arriving at dealerships some time in 2018.
