Mercedes-AMG is opening the sports car segment to customers who wish to share the experience of the best driving dynamics with their family and friends with the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe.
The exciting Handcrafted AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo delivers top-level, sporty performance and achieves a new performance peak of 630-hp to ensure superior sports car performance. The peak torque of 664 lb-ft is available across a broad engine speed range from 2,500 to 5,000 rpm. As such, the top-of-the-line engine conveys a sense of effortless power at all engine speed ranges. Acceleration from 0 to 60 mph is a head-snapping 3.1s and the vehicle sports an electronically limited maximum speed of 195 mph.
To provide more power and even better responsiveness, the two twin-scroll turbochargers combine optimal responsiveness at low engine speeds with high performance gains at higher revs. In addition to this, the turbine housing is divided into two flow passages which run parallel to one another. Combined with two separate ducts in the exhaust manifold, this makes it possible to individually control the momentum of the exhaust gases acting on the turbine wheel.
The complex and fine-tuned software ensures extremely rapid shift times as well as quick multiple downshifts where required. Thanks to the double de-clutching function in the “Sport” and “Sport+” drive programs, the system delivers an especially exhilarating shift experience. Defined ignition adjustments enable even faster gearshifts than in the other modes. In all modes, moving off occurs in first gear in order to always guarantee a dynamic driving experience. There is also the Race Start function which ensures optimum acceleration from a standstill.
The AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe responds even more sensitively to steering commands thanks to the active rear-axle steering. The system delivers an even better combination of agility and stability and thus reinforces the dynamism and handling safety.
Up to a speed of 62 mph, the rear wheels point in the opposite direction to the front wheels with the aid of two electric actuator motors. As a result, the car turns into corners with significantly higher agility. Under everyday driving conditions, the driver also benefits from a smaller turning circle.
At speeds higher than 62 mph, the system turns the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels. This noticeably improves driving stability. At the same time, the lateral force on the rear wheels builds up considerably faster during changes of direction, thus improving the response to the steering. The driver can also rely on extreme rear-axle grip and high stability when changing direction quickly.
As a member of the AMG GT family, the new AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe follows the design philosophy of Sensual Purity. It picks up on the striking proportions, convex surfaces and muscular body of the two-door variant and further develops these into the characteristic shape of the four-door version. The flowing silhouette, with low greenhouse and dynamic fastback, underscores the sporty focus.
The sporty appearance is enhanced thanks to LED Intelligent Headlamps, larger exterior air inlets in turbine look, framed by a jet wing in high-gloss black with a trim strip in silver shadow. The diffuser with its large, shaped fins and directly affixed diffuser blade sign off the rear end with twin trapezoidal tailpipe trims.
The interior stuns thanks to its sporty ambiance and generous feeling of spaciousness. It presents itself as a symbiosis of performance and exclusivity, integrating the conspicuous AMG Drive Unit in V8 styling with ultra-modern, innovative operating concept into a Gran Turismo ambiance. Two passengers can sit comfortably in the rear of the four-door coupe in two different seating styles. Different design and equipment packages offer a wide range of scope for personalization.
AMG seats in Black Nappa Leather for driver and front passenger as well as two individual shaped rear seats. The fully-digital 12.3″ digital instrument cluster displays all important driver information with AMG-specific and individually configurable displays. The developers also placed special consideration on the great noise and vibration comfort of the interior, which makes a great contribution to the performance-enhancing comfort of the vehicle.
More space, more power, more goosebumps – the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe combines extraordinary sports car technology with high everyday usability and impressive amounts of space.
