At the beginning of next year will see, surely in the Detroit Motor Show, the more powerful version of the Mercedes E-class, the E63 AMG. This version of the high-flying it will be fully for the first time with traction at all four wheels 4Matic, something which, by the way, just do not like too much rear propulsion purists.
For those who like to slide back out of curves and that can feel disappointed with the new version of the E63 AMG, Mercedes has decided to incorporate a “Drift” mode that acts on the distribution of torque arriving at each axle. Of this way, allows the shipping of to the 100% of the power to the wheels later, what will produce an oversteer if accelerate to fund.
It is not any rumor, but a confirmation from Tobias Moers, President of AMG, average coach during the Auto Salon in Paris. The mode Drift has been seen by first time in the Ford Focus RS and, as already you show here in form of video, has caused more than one disgust to any driver that it used where and when not should use it.
If the Drift mode only sends all the torque to the rear wheels, but does not send more power to the outside wheel of the curve, behave identically to as a version of propulsion would. However, if works as the Ford Focus RS, its operation will be more aggressive, since delivery more pair in the wheel outside of the curve, what produces quickly the thinner of the train back.
According to this same medium, the Mercedes E63 AMG will return to be available in two variants whose main difference is the greater power in which incorporates the symbol S. In any case, expected that one is slightly below the barrier of the 600 HP and another slightly above, rivaling, as always, with the BMW M5 and Audi RS6 sports sedans.
