Mercedes Benz ML 63 AMG

German carmaker Mercedes-Benz developed the new ML 63 AMG, the performance SUV with the largest displacement and highest output. The new front apron is an eye-catching feature with its high-gloss, chromed under guard. Round fog lamps set well to the outside with chrome surrounds and the flared wheel arches in the body color make the flagship M Class appear even wider and more muscular. Further visual highlights include the two chrome twin tailpipes on the AMG sports exhaust system. Now, the dark-tinted tail lights are replaced with LED tail lights with their clear-glass look if the optional bi-xenon headlamps are specified. The new 20-inch 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels make a bold statement. Covered in titanium grey, the 10-inch tires are shod with 295/40 R 20 tires both on the front and rear axle. The new AMG steering wheel stands out in the practical, high-quality interior of ML 63 AMG. AMG aluminum shift paddles allow the driver to shift gear manually. As an option, the carmaker also offers a Nappa leather-trimmed dashboard. The Audio 20 fitted as standard in the ML 63 AMG combines ease of use and logical menu structure with consummate entertainment. The Germans from Mercedes-Benz also provide the optional enhanced LINGUATRONIC voice-operated control system with its hallmark outstanding functionality in conjunction with the new telematics generation. Under the hood, the new model features a 6.3-liter V8 engine capable of developing 510 horsepower and 630 Nm of torque. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0-seconds and to reach a top speed of 250 km/h. The power produced is being transferred to the wheels through the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission with three drive modes. The generously dimensioned AMG high-performance braking system, which features internally ventilated and perforated brake discs all-round, guarantees the shortest possible braking distances and optimum resistance to fading.
