Mercedes Amg E43
The 2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 gives buyers a notable performance advantage over the base E300, but it still leaves room for an inevitable E63 AMG to come later.
The 2017 Mercedes-AMG E43 packs 396 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque into a stealthy performance sedan. It makes its public debut at the New York Auto Show.
