Mercedes-Benz sells ML 63 AMG in the UK for only £82,995 OTR

Article by Anita Panait, on April 12, 2012

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.

Exterior Design

The Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG’s equipment and style communicates supreme emotion, vitality, and ambiance. The V8 flagship’s strong look leaves no doubt that it is truly an AMG. Certain appearance changes distinguish the ML63 AMG from the other M-Class versions. One such example is evident at the front, where the large Mercedes star perches on a unique radiator grille that has high-gloss black painted louvres with three trim strips in chrome. The optional Intelligent Light System (ILS) also augments the clear-lens headlamp look.

AMG styled body has a distinctive appearance

The AMG body is styled with an animated AMG front apron that has three large air dams. The matte silver chrome trim strip at the apron’s bottom effectively contrasts and creates a visual link with the LED day running lamps built into the outer cooling air intakes. The front apron’s two angled struts highlight the car’s width, along with the AMG-specific front wings. Each side is wider by 10 millimetres and accommodates the large AMG light-alloy wheels elegantly. Seamlessly integrated "V8 BITURBO" logos hint at the incredible dynamism of the AMG flagship.

If viewed from the side, your eye will follow the side sill panels, visually linking the front to the rear. The AMG rear apron resonates the front end’s style. Large air outlets, angled struts, and silver matte chrome trim at the bottom give the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG’s rear a tremendously powerful impression as well.
