If you’re a Mercedes fan, the German automaker has a few treats for you at the 2016 L.A. Auto Show.

Although the company has plenty of vehicles on display at the show, the two most notable ones are the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT C Roadster and the new Mercedes-AMG E63 S sedan, which is celebrating its premiere in L.A. The four-door luxury sports car packs a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine with the more powerful S variant offering 603 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque. The standard Mercedes-AMG E63 offers 563 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque instead.

Standard on the E63 S is drift mode, which sends all the power to the rear wheels, making it a pure rear-wheel-drive vehicle once activated. Both models see their V8 engines equipped with the AMG Cylinder Management cylinder deactivation system that helps conserve fuel.

Both E63 and E63 S models are heading to dealerships in the U.S. next summer and you can expect pricing to be announced closer to their launch.
