The Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG, with its slab sides and butch, safe-like lines, may appear impenetrable, but it’s not. Like every normal automobile, it’s at the mercy of small-arms fire … until you take it to Inkas Armored Vehicle Manufacturing.
Fast sedans wearing the letters AMG are nothing new, but this 10-Second E63 is just redonkulous. Yes, that’s a technical term.
It’s hard to tune someone out after they say the word “plus.” Mercedes-Benz recently announced the Sport Package Plus for its CLA250 entry-level sedan – and we were listening.
Mercedes has found a gap to fill between the 333-horsepower C400 and the 450+/- horsepower C63. The undisguised C450 Sport AMG we spotted, and its 367-horsepower twin-turbo 3.0L V6 should fit within the wheel wells nicely.
That didn’t take long. It was only April when we spotted a development mule version of the Mercedes-Benz MLC/ML Coupe. The crew at AMG quickly got its wrench-turning hands on it and created what you see in the spy shots: the MLC63/ML63 AMG Coupe.
MBWorld forum members are calling this Benz’s bluff. Drake at DLMphotos, the person who posted this video to YouTube, claims this Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG is blowing 900 horsepower out its ass end. The guys on the forum beg to differ. Either way, this video offers a lot of burnout for the money.
Remind me to never watch the clip below in my car. Doing so will only make it jealous and me sick at the thought of how much cooler the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG is than my daily driver. I have a small sedan, but it’s not nearly as attractive or as fast as the German pint-size […]
It’s safe to say the upcoming S63 AMG Coupe is already a motivator. I can just hear people hustling to put in their orders for it at dealerships around the world. Its roadster sibling, the SL63, will be exercising so that it tops its corporate sibling’s output by creating 585 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque for the 2015 model year.
We’re living in great times for car enthusiasts. The artillery in the American horsepower wars is staggeringly powerful, Chrysler and Chevrolet are making V8-powered rear-wheel-drive sedans, and AMG is still twin-turbocharging V12s.
Going out on a low note isn’t such a bad thing. Especially when that note is as low and sonorous as that played by the hand-built V8 of the Mercedes-Benz AMG 6.3 vehicles. Yes, 2014 is the end of an era. The 6.2-liter M156 and M159 units will soon go the way of the dodo, but don’t worry; twin-turbo 5.5L engines have started taking their spots, and the similarly blown 4.0L mill for the next-generation C63 should prove to be a worthy successor. Perhaps in the future those eight-bangers will make a list as revered as the one after the jump.
