A leaked brochure shows that the 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 S will pack 604 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque.

The standard Mercedes-AMG E63 won’t be far behind, bringing 563 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. Both models will be powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that is also found in the C63 and C63 S models. The powerplant will be mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and 4Matic all-wheel drive, helping the E63 go from zero to 62 mph in under 3.7 seconds, while the more powerful S variant will do the same sprint in 3.5 seconds. Both models will have their top speed electronically limited to 155 mph.

The current Mercedes-AMG E63 S is powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 with 577 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque, so the next-generation model will have a noticeable upgrade in performance. Expect fuel economy to also improve considering the current E63 S has a seven-speed transmission.

Reports suggest that the 2017 Mercedes-AMG E63 and E63 S models will make their debut at the Paris Motor Show this October and it looks like the high-performance luxury sedan market is getting even hotter.
