The Car Pro Test Drives The 2019 Mercedes Benz AMG E63
Thursday on KFYO Mornings with Dave King and Matt Martin, The Car Pro Jerry Reynolds joined Dave and Matt to talk about his test drive of the week, as well as other auto industry news.
This week The Car Pro was test driving the 2019 Mercedes Benz AMG E63 S model, a car that Jerry says just makes you feel good.
It's a beauty, I've got to tell you. And the main thing is, it's kind of a wolf in sheep's clothing because, just at a glance, it doesn't look like it has 603 horses under the hood, but boy i'll tell you what, you'll know when you step on the accelerator.
Mercedes also makes a non-S model version of the car that gets 450+ horses, but the S model really bumps it up. This is the fastest in the AMG E63 line of cars. Reynolds explained that every one of the AMG E63 engines is handmade, and the person who made the engine even signs it on a plaque. He went on to say that this is just an engineering marvel. It has a wonderful interior, a great exhaust sound, and comes with everything you could want with a car. The car is even a very comfortable daily driver, as long as you don't kick it into dynamic or track mode. The car has a window sticker price of $124,900, which is pricey, but Jerry says the car sells surprisingly well.
The Car Pro also talked about some stories on his website carprousa.com, including the upcoming super car show, where Jerry will be doing his Car Pro Show from one week from this saturday, a story on the General Motors strike, and the Trump administration's EPA requirement rollback from California.
