Mercedes-AMG recently revealed the E63 and its more performance-oriented E63 S sibling. Those with concerns that all-wheel drive would dilute the power from the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 need not worry, as the large sedan can still roast its tires. Mercedes-AMG unleashed the E63 S on a track and proved that the car can still pull a smoky drift.

In its most powerful guise, the E63 S puts out 603 horsepower and 627 pound-feet of torque and comes with Drift Mode standard. Unlike in other vehicles with Drift Mode, the Ford Focus RS for example, the one in the E63 S puts all of the power down through the rear wheels, essentially turning the car into a rear-wheel-drive beast.

To see E63 S pull off a few drifts, check out the video above and to get the full lowdown as Mercedes-AMG's new weapons explore the automaker's official reveal of the vehicle.
