Mercedes Benz GT63 AMG
Mercedes Benz GT63 4 door Rent in Dubai. Consider the evidence. The GT63 S’s twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 heart pounds out 630 horsepower and 664 pound-feet of torque. All that throbbing energy is routed through a nine-speed automatic and the AMG-tuned 4Matic all-wheel-drive system, which enables this Mercedes to bolt to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. The quarter-mile is an 11.1-second 125-mph blur. AMG claims a top speed of 195 mph; it says as much on the tire-inflation sticker on the inside of the gas-filler flap that instructs you to increase the tire pressures for driving at speeds above 156 mph. In our testing, the GT63 S reached 175 mph from rest in the space of one mile. Rolling on optional Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, it corners at a heady 1.03 g’s on our skidpad, matching the roadholding of our long-term Porsche 718 Boxster S.
Those performance numbers put this four-door hatchback in league with the world’s quickest supersedans: the BMW M5 Competition, the Porsche Panamera Turbo, and AMG’s own E63 S sedan—though the M5 and E63 S begin to edge ahead at the quarter-mile mark. But the GT63 S tears those competitors to shreds when you put them all on a fast open racetrack. It is by far the quickest four-door we’ve ever hustled around Virginia International Raceway during our annual Lightning Lap competition.
The GT63 S’s test results amount to supercar bona fides, but those numbers are easy to misinterpret. AMG would have you believe that the GT 4-Door—the lineup also includes the 577-hp twin-turbo V-8 GT63 and the 429-hp, turbocharged, supercharged, and electrified inline-six GT53—is a stretched version of the company’s GT two-seater. It’s not. GT 4-Doors are built on a different, heavier platform belonging to the E63 S wagon. Our loaded, 4682-pound test car was carrying 1001 pounds more than the hottest of the GT coupes we’ve tested, the 577-hp track-attack GT R.
The GT 63 S adds the AMG Dynamic Plus package, which includes electronic rear-axle differential lock, ‘Race’ drive mode including ‘Drift-Mode’, larger front brake discs and yellow painted AMG brake calipers and a different set of 20-inch AMG alloy wheels. The range-topping limited edition AMG GT 63 S Edition 1 comes as standard with Graphite Grey magno paint, 21-inch forged, an aerodynamics package, the Premium Plus package, AMG Carbon Matte trim, AMG Nappa leather Magma grey seats with yellow contrast stitching, a Memory package and AMG Night package.
All models hover around the two-ton mark, the GT63 S being heaviest at 2045kg (DIN) and the six-cylinder GT53 being the lightest at 1970kg, despite its battery pack and electric motor.
Aesthetically, the front end features the familiar wide grille and low-set headlights of the two-door GT and the slim tail lights also evoke the more compact coupe. As standard there’s an active rear wing, although an optional aero package will replace this with a rather heavy-handed fixed item if you so wish.
Inside the cabin – which is accessed through coupe-like frameless doors – there’s been a similar transformation in the move to four doors, with a dashboard layout combining elements of both the existing GT and Mercedes’ more conventional models like the E-class.
From the former we get the raised, prominent centre console layout with its clear physical controls and slightly awkward, backward-set gear selector, while the latter has influenced the wide TFT display that stretches from the driver’s instrument panel to the middle of the dashboard, and a set of four central air vents that echo those of the E-class coupe.
And, of course, you get a pair of extra seats in the back, bringing with them an element of practicality as yet unavailable in the GT range. For its exterior styling and interior layout alone, the GT 4-Door is likely to find plenty of fans, but if you were hoping for a more distinctive interior on the lines of the Porsche Panamera’s for your extra cash, you’ll be disappointed.
New in the GT 4-Door is the option of a more performance-orientated steering wheel than that of the E63 S. It features a drive mode selection switch, which contains a small, round screen to tell you which mode you’re in. This is matched by the placement of buttons for the sports exhaust and gearbox mode on the other side.
For 2021, AMG gives the basic GT fresh standard features, more power, and a Stealth Edition. With an additional 54 horsepower and 29 pound-feet of torque, the GT’s engine now makes 523 ponies and 494 pound-feet. Estimated acceleration times and top speeds also increase, with a claimed 60-mph time of 3.7 seconds (two-tenths quicker than before) and a top speed of 194 mph for the coupe and 193 mph for the roadster. Both body styles now come standard with a lithium-ion starter battery, a Race drive mode, the AMG Ride Control sport suspension with adaptive dampers, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, and a braking system with iron rotors and red-painted aluminum calipers. The Stealth Edition gives the GT a sinister look, with blacked-out elements on the inside and outside of the car.
The Mercedes Benz GT63 4 Door Rent Dubai infotainment system runs through a 10.3-inch central screen that looks rather large in the tight confines of its cockpit. Although it’s not a touchscreen, the system’s functions are manipulated by a large knob on the console. A touchpad is optional, and it responds to gestures such as swiping, pinching, and handwriting. Navigation and two USB ports come standard, as do a six-month SiriusXM satellite radio subscription and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Onboard Wi-Fi is available, too.
