    E43 AMG 2017 Arrived

    Temptation! Temptation!

    My current ride the E400 AMG is almost 4 years old. Time to look at what's in store. This is the latest E43 AMG and although its bigger, badder brother - the E63s would be due end year, the price difference would warrant a second look. After all, 400bhp is no weakling (although the E63s boast 612bhp).

    Thinking hard ... Not cheap these pocket rockets over here. S$392k for the E43 AMG and a whopping S$588k for the E63s.

    Somehow hifi is so much more affordable!

    Still, cars are one irresistible lure .... Enjoy the pics. I do ... while considering the trade in values. After all, looking, salivating is free

    Cheers

    Jerry, having lived in S'pore, I would ask where would you drive this beast. Too much power just for promenading down Orchard Road .

    Jerry
    There is a nice write-up on both vehicles in the current issue of Car & Driver. The prices here as usual are about 1/3 or less of what you must pay in Singapore.
