Mercedes-Benz will be rolling out its ML 63 AMG in the United Kingdom at a very attractive on-the-road price of £82,995. Mercedes expects the ML 63 AMG, which was a product of the expertise of the company’s AMG performance division, to be sold out in a short time after dealers commence selling the model.
The ML 63 AMG, tagged as the exclusive flag-bearer for the new M-Class line-up, is powered by a 5.5-litre bi-turbo direct-injection V8 engine that could provide up to 525 hp of output and 700 Nm of torque.
Installed with optional AMG Performance Package for an additional £6,165, the engine could churn out up to 557 hp of output and 760 Nm of torque. The standard version of ML 63 AMG could accelerate from zero to 62 mph in just 4.8 seconds, making the car at par with other high-performance sports cars.
AMG’s engineers have made it possible for the ML 63 AMG to save almost 40% more fuel and emit around 30% less carbon dioxide than the previous model. This is made possible by installing the smart and reactive AMG Speedshift Plus 7-G Tronic seven-speed automatic gearbox, which features a Controlled Efficiency driving mode and ECO start/stop function.
With the AMG Speedshift Plus 7-G Tronic, the ML 63 AMG offers a combined economy of 23.9 mpg, with 276 g/km of carbon dioxide emissions. The AMG upgrades do not stop there.
The ML 63 AMG is also heavily modified to cope with the stresses of heavy performance. Modifications include AMG sports suspension, Direct Steer, high-performance brakes with internally ventilated and perforated discs and 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels. The ML 63 AMG has the Mercedes-Benz Active Curve System with AirMATIC self-levelling air suspension as standard, making it possible to impressively cut the corners without reducing the amount of comfort inside the car’s cabin.
AMG also made sure to give ML 63 AMG a special sporty treatment, both in the interior and exterior. On the outside, the ML 63 AMG dons an AMG bodywork that features exclusive front and rear aprons and side skirts, Intelligent Light System with AMG-specific LED daytime running lamps and an AMG sports exhaust system with two twin tailpipes. The ML 63 AMG sports a ‘V8 BITURBO’ lettering on the front wings.
