0-150 MPH in the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

These are the results of taking a 518hp sedan, an empty highway (closed course) at two in the morning and a hankering to go fast.

You can clearly see in the video that the E63 hits a "wall" at 120 mph, and we're not exactly sure why. Might just be a matter of air resistance overcoming aero but regardless, watch how fast it climbs from 60-120 mph. This shit is one fast tank. A brutish 6.2L V8 that redlines at 7,200 rpm, yet has 465 lb.-ft to play with, makes for an incredibly visceral experience. And honestly, it'll take turns without feeling like a numb tosser.

This is one of those cars you go to the dealership just to try out. You know, when you dress up in a suit and pretend you're some hotshot lawyer but in reality you're just some punk ass kid looking to get oppo while lighting the rear tires up. Ever done that, or is that a 0-60-only thing?

    It does hit a wall at 120 mph. The speedo goes from increments of 10 mph to increments of 20 mph so naturally the dial will slow down.

        Wow, Andrew we've watched the video (and I edited it) a bunch of times and didn't even notice that. Good call!

    I am a lawyer, but not hotshot, and I don't wear suits, so I will definitly dress up in one and pretend...I want to try one of those out soooo bad.

    If you still wear a suite you probably cant afford this car.
