Mercedes Benz brought water to everybody’s mouths at the ongoing Auto Expo, 2020 in Delhi, with the launch of its fastest production sedan, the AMG GT63 S 4MATIC 4-Door Coupe. The AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC 4-Door Coupe holds the title of the fastest series-production car around the Nurburgring racetrack.
According to Mercedes, the AMG GT coupe fully represents the design philosophy of AMG which is sensual purity, striking proportions and a voluminous body. The AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC 4-Door Coupe is powered by a 4.0-litre, V8 bi-turbo engine that puts out about 639 Bhp and 900 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox called the “AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed sports transmission”. The car can do the 0 – 100 kmph dash in 3.2 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 315 kmph.
In order to strengthen its position in this important growth market for the long term, Volkswagen Group is investing a total of One Billion Euros in the project. Škoda and Volkswagen’s upcoming volume models for the Indian market are based on the locally developed and produced MQB-A0-IN platform to keep the costs in check.
The coupe features a sporty design with styling cues in the front taken from the AMG GT-R, a muscular rear end and a classic coupe style stance making it one of the best-looking AMG cars to be produced in recent years. Inside, in the front, the car gets an individually configurable instrument cluster and a central media display with a 12.3-inch screen. As an option the AMG coupe can be had with AMG performance seats which give the car’s interior a sporty look. There is a choice of three different seating configurations for the rear of the AMG GT 4-door Coupe. Particularly generous: the variant with two individually tilt-able seats, including a practical Business centre console. This offers a touchscreen for the entertainment system, two USB ports, a temperature-controlled cup holder, wireless charging for cell phones and much more. There is also the choice of a three-seater bench seat with folding backrest and fold-down armrest or two individual seats with a shallow stowage compartment.
The car gets all the latest safety equipment like the Active Brake Assist, Active Steering Assist, DISTRONIC Mercedes’s PRE-SAFE system, MULTIBEAM LED headlights and much more. The AMG Coupe gets the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT system. With AMG DYNAMIC SELECT you can transform your vehicle from a Gran Turismo into a driving machine at the push of a button. The drive programs influence various factors, including the characteristics of the engine, transmission, suspension and steering.
The suspension adapts to your wishes at a push of a button. With "Comfort" you get balanced damping characteristics, while "Sport" and "Sport+" support you with stiffer tuning when adopting a sporty driving style. The GT-specific AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension combines the advantages of various types of suspension in one. The three-chamber air suspension offers a very broad spread between the most comfortable and most sporty set-up and adapts to the given load. The luxury sports coupe is priced at Rs 2.42 crore (ex-showroom). The Mercedes AMG GT63 S 4-Door Coupe is a great offering, in terms of the way it looks, the way it performs and most importantly the way it sounds.
