Spy photographers have sussed up a few images of the next Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG hustling around the Nürburgring. Given the strategic cladding stuck to the performance sedan's nose and tail, odds are buyers will see a facelifted version of the mightiest E-Class show up on dealer lots very soon. When it does, the AMG will feature a new fascia, complete with larger, more gaping air inlets to feed the 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 under the hood.

The new E63 will also benefit from the same updates we've seen crop up on the rest of the E-Class family, including single-piece headlights and a more upright, proud grille. Otherwise, changes appear to be slight. The reworked rear valance should allow for new exhaust exits out back, and the aft sheetmetal has been smoothed by nixing the old pontoon fenders. We can't wait to see this newest fast Benz without the armor.

      The star in the grille would be a new thing for a factory E Class. Probably just part of the disguise

        The star grill seems to be used in their sport models. The luxury models still get the pop up star, which I prefer.

          The Luxury vs. Sport distinction is only for the C Class. The hood ornament is used on all versions of the E and S Class sedans.

        Those hood ornaments are important to people. Sentimental, also acts as a great spear for the zombie apocalypse that may ensue if the t virus were to spread.

        The back end on this car is identical, save for the LED taillights.. just like the C and S class refreshes.

      Excellent refresh. I want to love this car, but the headlights and rear fenders always put me off. They picked the right things to change!

      "The new E63 will also benefit from the same updates we've seen crop up on the rest of the E-Class family, including single-piece headlights..." Whoa, they're getting rid of the dual headlights? That's been a distinguishing feature of the E-Class for quite a while now. I hope MB isn't going the way of Audi and BMW with little distinguishing characteristics among their "core" models.

        I think you're both right. The 4 oval and later diamond headlights on the E-Class lent it a uniqueness that helped the middle child stand out from between the C and S-Classes. True, that was not always the design protocol, but I prefer *unique* to the Audi same sausage, different lengths school of design.

        Have you seen MB lineups before 1995?.. This is nothing new for them.

      Not gonna lie...the new E class is horrible. They ruined it. It went from being the most distinctive luxury sedan to just another blob. I hate this direction.

      I don't think you're right about the rear pontoon fenders going away. That would be a very expensive area to refresh, and I still see them under the camo.

      I wish theyd bring back the bugeye look. IMO the best looking E-Class
