The Indian subsidiary of the Mercedes-Benz has rolled out its SUV offering the AMG G 63 ‘Edition 463’ in the country at an expensive price sticker of Rs 2.17 crore (ex-showroom Pune). In addition to that, an another the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 has also be introduced by the car maker in the Indian lineup.
Mercedes AMG G 63 Edition 463, here ‘463’ did not have any relation so far with the engine’s power output. In fact, the number refers Mercedes’ internal model code for the G-Class (W463).
Mechanically, this old-fashioned SUV is loaded with a 5.5-litre petrol V8 engine underneath the hood. The massive drivetrain develops the maximum power of 571PS ( 20+PS more than outgoing) and the peak torque of 760Nm via a mated AMG Speedshift Plus 7-speed automatic gearbox. With these whooping power figures, the G 63 can easily complete 0-100kmph sprint in 5.4 seconds and can touch the electronically-limited top speed of 210kmph. Impressed? It’s not done yet. You will definitely be stunned by knowing its weight and its pulling capabilities. More than 2.5 tons heavier in weight, the Edition 463 SUV can tow anything with weight up to 3.5 tons, with the support of churned power and aerodynamic design as a building.
At the exterior front, the AMG G 63 Edition 463 comes featured with a stainless steel underbody guard, 21-inch matte black alloys, and AMG sports strips as the new addition. Other than this there is no much alteration done on the SUV, yet it received the stubbornly boxy design.
Inside the cabin, the single-tone dashboard is decorated with the black designo leather, while the seats can be furnished as per your choice from the options black or brown designo leather. While there will be black carbon leather side bolsters on the seats. Other equipment such as the dashboard top-stitching, door handles, armrest, and handbrake, will match with the chosen seat colour. Other than this, you will find some AMG carbon-fibre work inside to add a sporty character in its appeal.
At this pocket burning price sticker, the G 63 will only be seen into a few garages in India and its availability here will be as an import unit. As reported, the Mercedes-Benz will launch nine AMG models as latest launches in India.
