We’ve been giving you spy shots of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG since last October, and now we finally get to see what the car looks like sans disguise. Teasing the debut of its new 2014 E Class models, Mercedes has leaked a single image of its new E Class family.

Passing the E Class pack on the banking is the new E63 AMG sedan, expected to come to market with the same twin-turbo, 5.5-liter V-8 used in the current E63 AMG. That engine is rated at 518 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque in standard trim, but an optional Performance Package boosts output to 550 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque.

We’ve previously reported that 4Matic all-wheel drive would be available on the AMG-tuned E Class sedan, and even speculated that all U.S. bound E63 AMG models would be equipped with all-wheel drive, a move that may not sit well with buyers in the South and West.

The press release that accompanies the image is vaguely ambiguous, with Mercedes stating, “Of interest not only to the US market will be the E63 AMG models, now available for the first time in a 4MATIC version as well.”

If our understanding of German logic is correct, we take that to mean that the E63 AMG models will come in both rear-drive and all-wheel drive across multiple markets, but we’ve learned that sometimes logic doesn’t apply to press releases from Germany. We’ll  know for sure next week, when Mercedes reveals the new E Class models at the Detroit Auto Show.
