Two new performance SUVs from Mercedes-AMG have been revealed - with the GLC 63 4MATIC+ available as either a regular SUV or as an SUV-Coupe with a sloping fastback roofline. The ’S’ trim level comes with more equipment and a bit more power, but all cars are fitted with a 9-speed AMG transmission and 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive. Under the bonnet is the same 4.0-litre V8 as fitted to the AMG GT sports car, delivering up to 510 bhp for a 0-62mph time of under 4-seconds.
Mercedes has revealed its first ever performance hybrid by AMG in Geneva. The four-door GT Concept is powered by a V8 petrol engine coupled with an electric motor for a total power output of 600 kW - which translates in to 805bhp - helping the GT accelerate from rest to 62mph in under 3 seconds. The concept has 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive as well as an F1 derived hybrid powerpack, ensuring that maximum electrical power is always on tap.
Mercedes-AMG has unleashed the fastest estate car in its segment - the E 63 S 4MATIC+. Powered by a 612 bhp 4.0‑litre V8, the all-wheel drive sports wagon sprints from 0-62mph in just 3.5 seconds, yet at the same time the engine is now more efficient thanks to a cylinder deactivation system fitted as standard. New design details include a sporty front end with a coupé-like bonnet, wider arches and large AMG alloys. The new Mercedes-AMG E 63 S will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The performance division of Mercedes - AMG - is kicking off its 50th anniversary celebrations with the launch of a new GT C Coupe. Unveiled at the Detroit Auto show, the GT C will initially be available exclusively as a special ‘Edition 50’ model, with plenty of black chrome and unique paint finishes including graphite grey. Power comes from a 4.0-litre V8 engine delivering 557 horse power, which translates into a 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-AMG GT and GT S have also been facelifted and upgraded with even more power.
Mercedes has unveiled its new AMG GT Roadster in Paris. The open-top two-seater will be available in two model variants when it goes on sale in 2017. The base model is powered by a 476 bhp 4.0-litre V8 while the flagship AMG GT C Roadster is tuned to deliver even more horse power, resulting in a 0-62mph time of 3.7 seconds and top speed of 196mph. AMG RIDE CONTROL and a widened track help with high speed cornering and if it rains, the roof will close in 11 seconds at speeds of up to 31mph.
Mercedes-AMG has unleashed a new beefed-up R version of its GT supercar. Making its public debut at Goodwood, the new Merc is powered by a 4.0-litre, V8 engine with 585bhp for a 0-62 time of 3.6 seconds, and a top speed of 198mph. Finished in a Nurburgring-inspired ‘Green Hell’ paintwork, the new GT R features a wider track, modified suspension, new aerodynamics front and rear and a lightweight construction - all designed for maximum driving dynamics.
