Following a preview last week, Mercedes has unveiled the new GLE63 AMG S Coupe.
Designed to battle the BMW X6 M, the crossover has an aggressive front fascia with a single bar grille, gloss black flics and large air intakes. The model also has LED headlights, a four-tailpipe exhaust system and 22-inch lightweight alloy wheels with a titanium gray finish.
The cabin largely carries over from the standard model but comes equipped with a flat-bottomed steering wheel, nappa leather sports seats and revised instrument cluster with faux carbon fiber dials. Other notable highlights include a leather-wrapped dashboard, heated / ventilated front seats and carbon fiber or piano black trim. The model also has stainless steel pedals, AMG-branded floor mats and a Harman Kardon audio system.
A twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine resides under the hood and produces 577 bhp (430 kW) and 561 lb-ft (760 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC transmission and a rear-biased 4MATIC all-wheel drive system. This enables the model to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.2 seconds.
Speaking of performance, the GLE63 AMG S Coupe features an AMG Ride Control sports suspension, an Active Curve System and a Sports Direct-Steer steering system. There's also a high-performance braking system with ventilated and perforated discs that measure 5.4" x 1.4" front and 13.6" x 1.0" rear.
