HAMMER - the nickname that became synonymous with the Original E Class Sized AMG in the W124 series. Not just because it was a 200K sleeper that would make Ferrari Testarossa drivers cower in the slow lane - but thanks to the bombastic V8 units under the hood that would hit like a hammer.

The news of the V8's return to the #E63 was recently debunked by AMG's CEO, so for now, it seems like the current #mercedesamg E63 S may well be the last to have the power unit linking to the original beast, and every E AMG since.

Today, we ask the question if this gen of E63 is a future classic, and if we should buy one and hold on to it! We will also celebrate this final V8 E63, as it’s been the best generation of this car ever. And I’m also going to share with you the best mods you can do to extract the potential of your E Class too!!

This generation of E63 has been one of the best, if not the best. It was the first mainstream performance sedan to introduce switchable 4WD to RWD drift mode, thanks to the decoupling of the front axle. A move quickly mimicked by rivals like the M5, and to this day not matched by Audi and others. It was the only one in segment to have dynamic engine mounts, which for the longest time made it the most dynamic of the segment.

In fact, for its entire lifetime of 8 years, the E63 Wagon sat as the king of the Nurburgring as the world’s quickest wagon. Only recently dethroned by the M3 Touring.

The engine is superior, one of the world’s best in the 4.0 twin scroll bi turbo engine making 612BHP, 850NM and 0-60 in 3.5 — also in pre-facelift E63. It also has the engine on rivals with it’s gearbox, the AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G with a wet multi-plate start-off clutch, instead of the slow torque converters of rivals. It’s an engine and gearbox combo that will remain relevant for years to come too, as the Euro 7 version will be based on this one, and will last a decade at least!

This is the final edition, and is technically identical to the standard E63 S. Unique points include the Magno Graphite paint work, final edition livery, and a unique wheel finish of chrome with black. The Afflaterbach badge also finds its way on the c pillar - all mimicking the C63 final edition. The interior is also unique.


Now, let’s move on to mods!! One problem with my car, is like every other one in the UK — it came delivered with the basic LED headlights. While not looking so different, their performance at night is mildly pathetic. And on your E63, it seems insane to have the basic lights, all thanks to chip shortage.

So, naturally, I upgraded them. And I’m going to show you how you can do it too - along with a tonne of basic mods I’ve done on my E63, which can be done on most Mercedes cars! You won’t want to miss this.

    ⁃    Multibeam upgrade
    ⁃    Disable Exhaust Flap
    ⁃    Lane change reactivated
    ⁃    Ambient light dynamic select
    ⁃    Dynamic select stupid screen
    ⁃    Energising Comfort ✅

So, this era of car reached a peak of technological efficiency - where the engine, gearbox, suspension, tech etc is all the best it’s ever been. Is that along side with the V8 enough to make this a classic? And if so should you get a facelift or not? Let’s find out!
