E 63 AMG Sounds Like an Angry Gorilla in Rev Battle with Itself

We hope most of our readers were able to catch director Matt Reeves' most recent movie, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, since it's been launched the past week. Without watching that, this story will probably not make full sense. Anyway, here goes!

In the wake of a massive virus outbreak that wipes out most of the humans on earth, apes are about to become the dominant species. Evolved chimpanses are the most numerous and inteligent, but there is also a small groups of gorillas, loyal, strong and incredibly scary. How scary? Imagine a fully grown bear with the dexterity of a boxer. Even the slightest growl of these half-ton gorillas will send shivers down your neck.

There's a car just like that and it's called the Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG, a performance mid-size luxury sedan with a hand-built heart. In the next video, you're about to watch two slightly different versions of that car, the basic mode with 557 PS and a more expensive S-Model that produces 585 PS.

We think the lesser of the two sounds just like the growl of a Planet of the Apes gorilla. Mercedes probably didn't design it that way, but a primal, emotional response is what they were after anyway. But because the S-Model package de-restricts engine breathing, this mode actually sounds less like a gorilla and more like... well, a car.

So the 5.5-liter twin-turbo engine of the E 63 AMG sounds just like the most powerful creature on Earth in the wake of an apocalyptic disaster that nearly wiped out all of humanity? That has to be the definition of "cool"!
