After gaining all the limelight of media for quite some months, Mercedes Benz India finally launched G63 AMG at Rs. 1.46 crore.
It had did well in all the major markets of world, especially to oil rich sheikhs of Dubai and Middle East, who escort it to their desert safari every weekend for getting a good bump in sand dunes. Though making the grounds more sophisticated for its performance, Germans had discontinued its outgoing model G55 in India. The clinching fact about G series is that, it hadn’t changed much in the past of more than 3 decades. Though, it was initially a part of German military which was then followed by other forces, as well as civilians.
Leaving all the past back itself, Mercedes Benz G63 AMG comes loaded with twin turbocharged 5.5 liter V8 producing 544 hp @ 5500 rpm and 760 Nm of torque@ 5000 rpm, mated with seven speed 7G-tronic gearbox. The 0-100 kmph sprint is completed in just a fraction of 5.4 seconds, can be said as an over whelming markings for such a heavily loaded machine.
Looking more deeply on the exteriors, one can easily spot a lot of difference on both the G-series offerings (G55 and G63), as naming a few of them, dual stance on front grille, larger air ducts, refreshed bumpers, 20” alloys etc. However, adding as a reminder, this Mercedes Benz G63 AMG is the same version that was premiered at Beijing Auto Show earlier.
Need not to mention, traction is provided on all the wheels, as also being controlled by differential locks to apply the power efficiently wherever needed. M-class borrowed color monitor and Command System is also being flagged inside.
Aiding to driver’s bits, some advanced features are also looked upon for the India launched Mercedes Benz G63 AMG, and those are Mercedes-Benz’s hi-tech Distronic Plus radar controlled cruise control system, Blind Spot Assist, Parktronic with a reversing camera, hill hold function, Trailer Stability Assist, along with some others.
Mercedes Benz had also added another streak just for Indians, who care a lot about fuel economy, and that is the start-stop brake energy recuperation systems. It does stores the energy in a reservoir that goes into waste while braking, and utilizes the same when acceleration is pressed again. It seems that Germans are implementing a part of green revolution here as well.
Last of the bit, G63 AMG is also featured in the Hollywood flick ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’, which is slated to release in this week. Looks like promotions had already taken off with the real stud Bruce Willis.
Getting more with launch, we are now expecting the Biturbo 6×6 version of the same that was spotted on its route to Dubai recently after all it tends to be more impossible here!
