Fans of high-performance AMG cars from Mercedes-Benz, we will provide you with an official piece of information that many of our Arab GT followers expected and is related to the 2021 Mercedes E63 Coupe, and its open-top sister the 2021 E63 Cabriolet.
Few days after the launch of the 2021 Mercedes E-Class Coupe, and the 2021 Mercedes E-Class Cabriolet and the debut of the new 2021 AMG E53 version which depends on a 3.0 Liter 6-cylinder engine generating a power of 429 hp and 520 Nm of torque, working alongside the EQ boost hybrid system which relies on an electric battery that adds 21 horsepower and 249 Newton meters of torque, today we will talk about the fate of 8-cylinder engines on the new 2021 E-Class Coupe and E-Class Cabriolet as well.
Perhaps most of you have guessed the answer by now, there are no more V8 engines on the current and updated generation of the 2021 Mercedes E-Class 2021 in both coupe and coupe versions, which means that the 2021 Mercedes E63 Coupe and its Cabriolet version will not be offered.
According to official statements made by AMG Product Manager Kamelia Brodner, the E53 will be the highest performance version of the 2021 Mercedes E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet, and there is no need to provide the full-fat version E63 in a revamped version.”
“We won’t offer a V8 on the two model lineups,” Brodner said “For the E-Class sedan and estate we have a V8, but not for the coupe and cabriolet.”
This decision did not come as a surprise and was expected by many journalists, as most car makers today are reducing the size of the engines even in high-performance versions, and providing their cars with turbochargers and hybrid systems instead, making the power of the four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines equal to and even greater than the V8’s. The small engines improve mileage and reduce emissions to comply with strict European laws for manufacturers.
