Following the cancellation of the Geneva motor show, Mercedes-AMG presented online the new GLE 63 Coupe 4Matic + and GLE 63 S Coupe 4Matic +. Both versions feature the well-known 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that offers up to 612 horsepower and 850 Nm.
In terms of design, the two performance versions received, among other things, a new front grille, improved side sills and a rear difusor. Also, the exhaust system has four terminations, and the rims are now 21 or 22 inches in size.
For the interior, the German manufacturer has prepared AMG sports seats dressed in Nappa leather, a sports steering wheel equipped with aluminum paddles and a series of accessories “embroidered” with the logo of the performance division.
Under the hood of both versions sits the Mercedes-AMG 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. For the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe 4Matic +, the powertrain develops 571 horsepower between 5,750 and 6,500 rpm and 750 Nm between 2,250 and 5,000 rpm. The resources are managed by a nine-speed AMG Speedshift TCT transmission and the 4Matic + intelligent all-wheel drive system. The Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.0 seconds (the same value as the AMG GLE 63) and the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km / h (280 km / h in the AMG Drivers Package).
In the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe 4Matic + variant, the V8 engine offers 612 horsepower delivered between 5,750 and 6,500 rpm and 850 Nm available between 2,500 and 4,500 rpm. The top version is equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission and 4Matic + all-wheel drive. The acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h takes place in 3.8 seconds, and the top speed is limited to 280 km / h.
In addition, regardless of the version chosen, the gasoline engine is also supported by a mild-hybrid EQ Boost system that provides an additional 22 horsepower.
At the same time, the braking system has been much improved compared to the “civil” versions (400 mm brake discs on the front axle, respectively 370 mm on the rear axle), and the steering system offers special Pro and Master settings.
The standard features of the two performance versions include the AMG Ride Control + suspension and the AMG Dynamic Select system which also integrates a driving mode called Race (only for the GLE 63 S Coupe).
