In the battle of sport sedans, things continue to heat up and things are getting dicey.
While the BMW M5 reigned victorious for years, one test marked the Audi S6 the winner. And now the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG is doing what was once thought unthinkable.
It will feature an all-wheel drive setup for the 2014 model year.

So, while details about the AWD AMG have remained tucked away, now we're hearing some of the NEW details for the FIRST time.
Check out the clip below to hear all about Mercedes' upcoming 2014 E63 AMG.
