MERCEDES-BENZ has released a new promotional video for the 2010 E63 AMG, launched in Australia last December.

Using its race-derived 6.2 litre naturally-aspirated V8 engine, the video features the E63 AMG powersliding around a wet Brooklands track, propelled by a full 386kW and 630Nm of torque.

Mated to the big V8 is Mercedes' 7-speed AMG Speedshift MCT automatic transmission, differing from conventional autos by using a wet clutch to control power delivery instead of a power-sapping torque converter.

Controlling the Speedshift MCT's behaviour is a dial, located to the right of the gear selector. Through it, the driver can select the economy-oriented Comfort mode, the sharper Sport mode, an even sportier Sport Plus mode and a fully-manual shift mode.

Manual mode holds each gear until the driver taps one of the steering wheel-mounted paddles or nudges the tiptronic shifter, and perfect rev-matched downchanges are executed when in Sport or Manual mode.

In Sport Plus and Manual mode, the Speedshift MCT can swap ratios in just 100 milliseconds.

Click through to read the full details on the 2010 E63 AMG. Or, sit back and enjoy two-and-a-half minutes of Top Gear-like cinematography and the raucous thunder of the AMG V8.
