Mercedes-Benz India has expanded its AMG line-up with two new performance SUVs – Mercedes-AMG G63 ‘Edition 463’ and Mercedes-AMG GLS 63. The performance bred GLS 63 is priced at Rs.1.57 crore while the G63 Edition 463 is priced at Rs.2.17 crore.
The new models take the German auto giant’s SUV count to eight in the country, the highest in the luxury segment. Both SUVs offer top-of-the-line performance tuned by the folks at Affalterbach, Germany. Starting with the Mercedes-AMG G63, the iconic SUV needs no introduction and is one of the sought after offerings from the manufacturer since 1979.
The ‘Edition 463’ was first introduced globally in 2015 and essentially celebrates the iconic G-Wagen’s 35-year-old history. 463 stands for the Mercedes-AMG G63’s internal model code, and has nothing to do with the power figures.
In fact, power output from the monstrous 5.5-litre V8 engine stands at 563 bhp at 5500 rpm and 760 Nm of peak torque at 5000 rpm. The impressive figures prompt the G63 to propel from 0-100 kmph in 5.4 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 210 kmph.
