    Cool AMS/Alpha Performance's 2014 E63 AMG 4 Matic Runs Two 10 Second Passes!

    First E63 4Matic in the 10′s!



    On June 26th we took our 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG 4Matic to Great Lakes Dragway for some preliminary testing of the Alpha 7 upgrade package. Track conditions were not ideal with the temperature somewhat pleasant in the 60s but accompanied by 100% humidity. When the track lights switched on at dusk you could see the moisture in the air!

    Our AMG was equipped with only our Alpha Tune and prototype Alpha Downpipes and Cat-Back Exhaust. The full Alpha 7 Bi-Turbo upgrade will include an Alpha Boost Cooler Kit in the future but we were eager to see the results of just a tune and exhaust. Rolling on 20 Vorsteiner wheels and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires we were hopeful for a very low 11 second run, but ended up with the first E63 4Matic in the 10s!

    First pass of the night Paul staged the car, applied the brakes and gave it a bit of throttle, the launch was undramatic, smooth with no tire spin. When the board lit up we were a bit surprised, 10.850 @ 129.31 MPH, setting a new AMG 4Matic record! After letting the car cool down we staged it for another run, the car launched exactly the same as the first pass, hard with no drama and lit the board up with a 10.879 @ 129.21 MPH. Talk about consistency!

    Overall we are very pleased with the results from the nights testing. Once the M157 Alpha Boost Cooler Kit and Carbon Fiber Intake System are complete we will bring the car back to the track for another round of testing and hopefully hit 130+mph trap along with a mid-low 10 second pass!

    AMS / Alpha Performance is the first to break into the 10's with a 4Matic M157 - 10 second 2014 W212 E63 AMG

    Congratulations to AMS for being the first to officially break the 10 second barrier with a 4Matic M157 AMG V8 powered vehicles. AMS ran a pair of 10 second passes showing the consistency of their 4Matic upgrades. As a reminder, AMS released their E63 AMG 4Matic ECU tuning earlier this year. They also provided a nice dynograph comparison of the 2014 E63 AMG 4Matic and the E63 AMG S 4Matic on the dyno stock and tuned.

    The full details are below in @ALPHA Performance's own words:

    Of course! We do need to wrap up a couple other modifications and get the test data from those before we move ahead with the turbo upgrade, but it's coming Click here to enlarge

    Nice, but you were not the first to hit these times and speeds with a 4matic ...
    I saw the RENNtech E63S doing 10.8X s and trapping approx. 132mph @ Moscow UNLIM500+ (which is a non "glued" / non professional 1/4 mile track) last month... and ambient was 81-86F during the event.

    As far as standardized timing for this record we go by NHRA certified drag strips in the USA. Moscow Unlimited does not use NHRA sanctioned timing and from what I've seen the numbers are quite different (and not as consistent) as those on dragstrips.

    If you can't produce a timeslip, it doesn't count.

    @Unlim events they use race america timing systems and meanwhile you can check "timeslips" on dragtimes.ru and filter by make e.g. ... http://www.dragtimes.ru/en/results/allresults ...

    I understand but once again their timing system is not what we use for records. Only NHRA certified 1/4 mile drag strips count, period.

    Well then Sticky, following your logic Eric from AMS should cross out Yuri's world record for a standing mile from his signature ;-)

    No because standing mile timing is different and there is no standardized governing body for standing mile racing.

    Why is it always people overseas who don't understand quarter mile timing?

    There are no doubt other 10 second cars but this is the first 'official' result.

    I wouldn't call it super nice weather though...we had some major Alabama humidity going on, far from ideal Click here to enlarge
