BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, Wednesday February 11, 2015 – Every AMG Mercedes has performance in its blood. They are lightning fast, have excellent handling and an inimitable sound. Nonetheless, each AMG Mercedes is a unique masterpiece with its own unmistakable character. Whether sedan or station wagon, offroader, coupe or roadster – the features that unite all AMG models are their unbridled motorsport spirit and their passion for performance.
The ML 63 AMG thrills with this unbridled performance. In the segment of sporty offroaders, the ML 63 AMG sets the benchmark. The combination of the AMG 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine, which with the AMG Performance Package mobilizes 405 kW (550 hp), 760 newton meters of torque, and the AMG SPEEDSHIFT PLUS 7G-TRONIC transmission means that superior driving pleasure is guaranteed.
The distinctive front of the ML 63 AMG draws attention to itself: the AMG front apron with large air intakes and matte chrome trim and the by 20 mm flared wheel arches provide a powerful appearance. At the side and the rear this imposing appearance is continued with AMG side skirts and an AMG rear apron. The AMG sports exhaust system with two chromed twin tailpipes is an exclamation mark of visual distinction, raw power that delivers an exhilarating acoustic sound.
Car and Driver in their review of the ML 63 AMG said:
“It’s quick, yet isolates driver and passengers from the sensation of speed; the handling limits arrive with little notice. Luxurious finishes befit its price, coddling occupants in leather and wood. Aside from a deliciously mean exhaust note, the ML63 performs with hushed composure.”
This exhilarating performance meets industry-leading safety and with all of this awesome performance at the driver’s disposal, the ML 63 AMG comes equipped with an AMG high-performance braking system to decelerate the power of the engine effectively when required. The brakes are comprised of 6-piston fixed calipers at the front wheels, with internally ventilated, indented brake discs and single-piston sliding calipers at the rear wheels, again with internally ventilated, indented brake discs.
Viewed from the side, the 50,8 cm (20“) AMG light alloy wheels are distinctive, burnished finished and painted titanium grey. The rims are fitted with imposing 265/45 R 20 tires.
