Lightbulb New York: Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG says 'Ich bin ein monster'

Filed under: New York Auto Show, Sedans/Saloons, Mercedes-Benz


Mercedes E63 AMG - Click above for high-res image gallery

AMG is slowly raising the level of every car in the specialty line, and now the E63 AMG takes its place among the truly sporty offerings from Affalterbach. The specs fit the mold of bigger better more, with 518 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, matching the S Class number for number. The thing to pay attention to this time around is the car's sporting cred: a 4.4-second to sixty mph time via the 7-speed dual clutch transmission from the SL63 AMG, 3-stage ESP, AMG Ride Control sports suspension with steel spring struts up front and air springs with electronically-controlled damping out back, and four driving modes. The official press release is after the jump and two galleries of high-res photos are below, one with live shots from the show floor and the other full of new official images released by Mercedes-Benz today.

I do think someone doesn't know german that well...

they can drop the "ein" before and it wont sound weird.

ala the "Ich bin ein berliner" bit from JFK... he said, I am a berliner, a popular donut in berlin.. if he had said "Ich bin Berliner" the spectors would have understood that as "I am a Berliner, not a jelly donut"

thats why there was laughter and such, popular joke in german class
