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!
Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG is provided with a new AMG ergonomic steering wheel which specially shaped grip area is wrapped in perforated leather, while its bottom two spokes features a silver-colored insert. The steeringwheel comes with new AMG aluminum shift paddles that allows for manual gear shifting. The dashboard of the ML 63 AMG can optionally be trimmed with nappa leather.
