Mercedes’ 805-HP AMG GT63 S E Performance boasts to be fastest ever

Heralding a new era of high-performance luxury coupes, Mercedes recently took wraps off the 805-HP AMG GT63 S E Performance, which claims to be the brand’s fastest-accelerating production vehicle ever built. The Mercedes-AMG GT63 S E Performance is a two-door coupe that boasts groundbreaking hybrid powertrain. It delivers 805 combined horsepower (hp), thanks to its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine at the front and a powerful electric motor (e-motor) at the rear. The gas-powered engine alone accounts for 603 hp, but the combined torque of 1,047 pound-feet makes it more impressive. As per the brand’s claims, with all things under the hybrid technology performing together, the two-door coupe can reach 60 miles per hour (mph) in a merely 2.7 seconds. The new-generation vehicle might be bigger with its additional seating capacity, but it is officially the brand’s quickest production model to date.

The Mercedes-AMG GT63 S E Performance is technically a plug-in hybrid (PHEV), performance has been given priority over efficiency. Its battery capacity has been reported at just 6.1 kWh, and the manufacturer hasn’t revealed its electric-only range. Obviously, the brand’s focus is on performance. In other words, the company’s focus is on delivering maximum power whenever required rather than on extending the range. For charging, the PHEV has been equipped with plug-in capability in addition to various selectable recuperation settings, including a single-pedal mode that we often see in EVs. It aims to provide drivers with flexibility as per their driving preferences.

The drivetrain of the PHEV features a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission system and the brand’s 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. Normally, the e-motor drives only the rear axle, but power can be routed to the front wheels whenever the need is felt. The list of other notable features of the powertrain includes rear-axle steering, the AMG Active Ride Control suspension, six-piston calipers grip 16.5-inch rotors at the front, 15-inch rotors with single-piston calipers at the rear, and back carbon ceramic brakes. The company is also offering optional wheels of up to 21 inches.

When it comes to appearance, the E Performance version maintains the sleek and bold styling that defines the AMG GT63 lineup.

Anticipation is quite high as the Mercedes 805-HP AMG GT63 S E Performance is all set to grace the market before the end of current year. Pricing details for the hybrid vehicle are yet to be announced, but the perfect blend of groundbreaking performance capabilities and advanced hybrid technology will unquestionably make a coveted addition to the luxury car segment.
