Charged with adrenaline. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE
  • With a system output of 620 kW (843 hp) and a maximum system torque of more than 1400 Nm, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE (fuel consumption weighted, combined: 7.9 l/100 km; weighted, combined CO2 emissions: 180 g/km; power consumption weighted, combined: 12.0 kWh/100 km) is a new milestone in the company’s history.
  • The four-door coupé is the first performance hybrid and the most powerful series-production model of the brand from Affalterbach to date.
  • The combination of 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine and electric motor ensures superior driving performance and outstanding driving dynamics with impressive efficiency at the same time.

Kuala Lumpur. Mercedes-Benz Malaysia today presents the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE, the most powerful production vehicle Mercedes-AMG has ever made at Malaysia Autoshow 2023.

Bettina Plangger, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mercedes-Benz Cars Malaysia & SEA II said, “We are excited to announce the arrival of the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE to our esteemed patrons in Malaysia. The stunning AMG GT 4-Door Coupé effortlessly showcases its sporty and elegant persona, setting a new benchmark in the world of luxury automobiles. Its seamless blend of purebred sports car performance and remarkable practicality for daily usage is a true testament to its engineering excellence. ”

Mercedes-AMG is forging its own technical path to transport its hallmark brand DNA into an electrified future. To achieve this, the Affalterbach-based company uses, for example, technologies from Formula 1 in its E PERFORMANCE Hybrid strategy. The concept includes an independent drive layout with an electric motor and battery on the rear axle. In the AMG GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE, the system consists of a 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with a permanently excited synchronous electric motor, a high-performance battery developed by AMG and the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system. The system power of 620 kW (843 hp) and the maximum system torque of more than 1400 Nm enable acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. After less than ten seconds, 200 km/h are reached. Acceleration ends at 316 km/h.

The new top model of the model series offers extensive standard equipment. Including: 

  • With its continuously adjustable pressure relief valves, the AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension adjusts the damping force for each wheel to suit the situation in just a few milliseconds. The AMG DYNAMIC SELECT drive programs are used to preselect the basic set-up – from “Sport+” mode for particularly dynamic driving to the “Comfort” setting for smooth gliding. In addition, the tuning can be adjusted in three stages independently of the drive programs via a button. 
  • The integrated AMG DYNAMICS driving dynamics control system influences, among other things, the control strategies of the ESP® (Electronic Stability Program), the all-wheel drive and the electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential. This increases agility without negatively affecting the vehicle’s stability. 
  • The ceramic high-performance compound brake system is lightweight, has a long service life and extremely high stability.

As with the entire model series, the new Performance hybrid offers a wide range of customisation options: 

  • Exclusive colour options available including MANUFAKTUR kalahari gold and AMG green hell magno paint finish. The MANUFAKTUR label stands for the highest degree of individuality and luxury with selected materials that are predominantly processed by hand. Exclusive paintwork and high-quality interior finishes are also part of the package. Other range for the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé, includes paint finishes such as MANUFAKTUR classic grey uni, MANUFAKTUR olive metallic or MANUFAKTUR copper orange magno (matt version) as well as various leather colours. 
  • In addition there is a two-tone leather steering wheel, deep-pile floor mats with embroidered AMG lettering and decal sets in three colour variants for the side skirts. 
  • The performance hybrid looks very sporty thanks to the 21-inch AMG forged wheels in a 5-twin-spoke design, painted black and with a rim flange with a high-sheen finish. The AMG Night Package and the AMG Night Package II with their selected exterior elements in high-gloss black and dark chrome as well as the black foiling above the side sills also ensure the sporty look. The AMG Aerodynamics Package and the AMG Exterior Carbon package are included in the standard specification. The panoramic roof lets plenty of light into the vehicle interior. Thanks to highlights such as the AMG Performance seats in Exclusive nappa leather, as well as the AMG trim elements in carbon, an unfiltered motorsport atmosphere prevails here.
