Mercedes Benz E-Class comes out with Drift mode

The most powerful E-Class features a 4.0-litre turbocharged engine that generates a staggering 612 hp and 850 Nm of torque. . A sprint from zero to 100 km/h is absolved in 3.4 seconds, and this dynamic acceleration only ends at the governed top speed of 250 km/h (with AMG Driver’s package: 300 km/h).

The lesser of the two, E 63 4MATIC+ is rated at 571 hp and has 750 Nm of torque. This variant accelerates to 100 km/h in 3.5 seconds.

Drift mode can be activated in the “Race” drive program using the shift paddles, provided that ESP is deactivated and the transmission is in manual mode.  When drift mode is activated, the E 63 S 4MATIC+ becomes a purely rear-wheel drive vehicle. Drift mode remains engaged until the driver deactivates it again.
