It was nice to see Mercedes-Benz admit not producing an E63 AMG coupe was a mistake. Gerd Junginger who is a Mercedes product manager stated, "Seen from now, yes it was a mistake. At that time, AMG had a different strategy. Now they offer an AMG version in almost all the range.”
When the car was being planned Mercedes did not think an AMG model was a good idea. Which is odd considering the preceding CLK coupe had an AMG variant and even an awesome Black Series AMG variant.

Gerd stated, "It’s the perfect car to be an AMG. It almost looks like an AMG version as it is now. Next time we won’t make the same mistake.” At least the successor will definitely be getting an AMG version. Ah what a could have been...
