Mercedes-Benz unveiled today the updated version of the ML63 AMG. What are the changes you ask? If you look at the pictures you will see a new bonnet with power domes, darkened bi-xenon headlamps with active light function, a new rear with darkened tail lamps incorporating a clear-lens design and LED technology as well as chromed front and rear underguard.
Under the hood we find the impressive AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine (found also on the current model) capable to deliver 510 hp (375 kW) and 630 Nm of torque.
With this engine the car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.0 seconds while the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. The engine is mated to the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission with three drive modes.
Like all the AMG models, the ML 63 comes with 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels painted in titanium grey and wrapped in 295/40 R 20 high-performance tires. As an option, the manufacturer also offers titanium-grey-painted, high-sheen twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels wrapped in 295/35 R 21 tires.
Inside, we find the same quality we were used to from the previous model: electrically adjustable AMG sports seats finished in nappa leather upholstery, Alcantara inserts in the shoulder areas, a new AMG sports steering wheel, aluminium shift paddles and perforated leather on the specially-shaped grip area.
Price of the car 105,077 euros (incl. 19% VAT). For those who want one, the new car will be delivered to customers from July 2010!
