The Mercedes E-Class is an executive sedan and is offered in many different trims. The automaker’s performance arm, AMG, took it under its wings many years back and has been tuning it to make it one hell of a rocket on the tarmac. While the latest fifth-gen AMG E63 S comes with a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V-8, the 2010 model lived by the principle ‘no replacement for displacement’. It featured a naturally aspirated V-8 that displaces at 6.2 liters. Purists prefer the free-revving N/A engine over turbos any day, but in this case, can it hold a candle against an 11-year newer model?
The folks at Throttle House decided to see how they go up against each other on a drag strip. Who are you rooting for?
