All-new Coupe Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 unveiled

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled its new GLE 63 Coupé version which uses a mild-hybrid powertrain to increase efficiency and acceleration. Apart from the roofline, the SUV-coupé is virtually identical to the GLE 63 that was launched last November, matching AMG’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged petrol V8 with a 48V starter-alternator. The mild-hybrid tech delivers an additional 22hp and 250Nm if necessary.

The GLE 63 Coupé comes in standard 571hp and 611hp S versions. For the GLE 63 S Coupe, Mercedes-AMG claims a time of 0-100kph 3.8sec and a top speed of 280kph. The Coupé also gets the same automatic 9-speed gearbox, four-wheel 4Matic+ drive, active air suspension, active roll stabilization and six driving modes found on the GLE 63. A seventh drive mode-race-is unique to the S variant.

The GLE 63 Coupé has been redesigned by AMG in line with its twin, adding a new grille and a restyled front end with a wide splitter and black air intake. On the back, the 63 receives a rear diffuser in black performance style over the regular GLE Coupé, which houses a twin-exit exhaust system customized to the AMG. In addition to the side skirts, front splitter, mirror caps, and window frames, an optional night kit turns the exhaust tips black.
