Mercedes-AMG to launch GT 63 limited edition

BERLIN, May 22, 2018


To mark the launch of the new AMG GT 4-Door Coupé in September 2018, Mercedes-AMG will be offering an Edition 1 model for a limited period of 12 months only.

The limited-edition model is available as the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ Edition 1, featuring the 470 kW (639 hp) top-of-the-range V8 engine.

In conjunction with the 21-inch AMG cross-spoke forged wheels, the paintwork in designo graphite grey magno, diamond white bright or graphite grey metallic immediately draws the eye. The interior is made even more sportily exclusive by AMG Performance seats in Exclusive nappa leather in magma grey/ black with yellow contrasting topstitching, while the AMG Performance steering wheel in DINAMICA microfibre with yellow contrasting topstitching and the AMG matt carbon-fibre trim add further highlights.

Superb longitudinal and lateral dynamics and a striking silhouette with classic proportions mean that the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupé lines up in the portfolio alongside its two-door brothers. As the first four-door AMG GT model, it furthermore combines high everyday comfort with many options for individualisation and the very latest in sports car engineering.

The Aerodynamics Package for the Edition 1 encompasses such features as a larger front splitter and integrated flics in the front apron, an enhanced demand-optimised diffuser and a fixed rear spoiler, the blade of which can be mechanically adjusted. The driver is thus able to adjust the balance of lift and the driving characteristics to suit individual preference or the specific circumstances.

The perfectly coordinated interaction between the various elements serves to optimise aerodynamic efficiency. Compared with the standard vehicle with its adjustable spoiler extended to the maximum, at 300 km/h an additional 30 kilograms of aerodynamic downforce press the rear axle down onto the road.

The larger front splitter also reinforces the effect of the AIRPANEL active air management system: if the adjustable louvres are closed, the lift at the front axle is further reduced. Another advantage of the complex work that has gone into this Package: the Cd value is even lower, despite the higher downforce.

This win-win combination improves both the longitudinal and the lateral dynamics as experienced by the driver on the road or race track.

The Edition 1 is available exclusively for the top-of-the-range Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ 4-Door Coupé, which features the most powerful version of the 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with an output of 470 kW (639 hp). This allows a top speed of 315 km/h and can propel the car from a standing start to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. – TradeArabia News Service
