Mercedes Benz GT63 AMG
The Mercedes Benz GT63 AMG is undoubtedly one of Porsche’s biggest headaches. It follows on from the dramatic SLS, doing without the gullwing doors, but lowering weight and increasing performance.
It’s one of the most expensive and powerful Mercedes you can buy; and, its two-door, two-seater layout, coupled with sharp, engaging handling and a thundering V8 engine, put it firmly in 911 territory.
The base 516bhp model is a fun car, but those after a track-biased weapon will want the storming GT R – it’s got 577bhp, a more focused chassis setup and technology to help flatter the driver and set blistering lap times.
The new Mercedes-AMG GT63 embodies the sensual purity of sportiness and emotion. The two-seater is characterized by hallmark rear-wheel-drive proportions. The V8 biturbo front mid-engine ensures optimum weight distribution, which forms the basis for superb driving dynamics. The long hood with its pronounced powerdomes, the greenhouse, which has been moved far back, the large wheels and broad tail end, make up the distinctive looks. The large tailgate conceals a practical luggage compartment.
The interior design embodies maximum emotion and sensual purity. Radically low, sporty proportions create a unique sense of spaciousness. Clearly drawn components and their authentic materials highlight the dynamic character and instantly generate excitement: Anyone opening the door discovers an exciting interplay between the deep, sloping dashboard and a dominant, arched high center console, a design which evokes emotions and impresses with its perfection.
