Everything to Know About the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S
Slideshow: The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door coupe is getting closer to hitting showrooms.
Fast AND Practical
The amazing thing about AMG's newest monster is that the fact that it's a 4-door 4-passenger vehicle with all the practical features of a daily driver doesn't take away from its unbelievable capabilities on the track.
AMG's Most Powerful Engine
The flagship GT 63 S possesses the most powerful AMG engine to power a road car. The 4.0L twin-turbo V8 is capable of producing an amazing 639 HP in the GT 63 S. The engine available with the car is a turbocharged 3.0L straight 6 that is also aided by an electric compressor.
AMG SPEEDSHIFT and 4MATIC+
The GT 63 S is equipped with AMG's SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9G transmission as well as the AMG Performance 4MATIC+. Together, these driving systems enhance the performance and the overall experience of spirited driving in the AMG GT.
It is also worth noting that the 4-door coupe utilizes a 48-volt electrical system to help the functionality of the hybrid systems such as boost, gliding, engine restarting, shifting the load point, and energy recuperation.
Of course, the masterclass of a company that has become synonymous with the highest level of racing is sure to incorporate the latest racing tech to make sure that vehicle is as lightweight as possible while strengthening structural rigidity. And AMG has done that by using effective materials such as Aluminum and Carbon-fiber.
AMG Racing-Caliber Aero and Suspension
And that same racing pedigree has inspired the aerodynamic features of the car as well. The active aero elements help the car adapt to different situations to perform with maximum efficiency. Additionally, the AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension system ensures a perfectly comfortable ride in daily driving, while also providing top-level performance on the track. The GT 63 S is equipped with a multi-chamber air suspension as well, which helps support the active suspension features in providing the best driving dynamics possible.
As with any AMG machine, various driving modes are available to the user. The GT 63 S features Slippery, Comfort, Sport, Sport+, and Individual. There is also a driving mode exclusive to the GT63 S and that is RACE mode.
The announced price range for the AMG GT 4-door coupe is close to the Porsche Panamera which it will be directly competing with. Depending on the trim level, the GT could have a starting price of anywhere between $95K to $185K.
