Mercedes AMG GT 63 S Four-Door Coupe Gets Edition 1 Model

Mercedes-AMG has decided to come up with a family style model for its AMG GT 63. The Mercedes AMG GT 63 S four-door coupe will mark its launch with an Edition 1 model, complete with exclusive interior and exterior appointments for the 2019 model year.

This latest model of the AMG GT family will get all the trappings of the AMG Aerodynamics Package, including larger front splitter and integrated flics in the front bumper, optimized diffuser and fixed rear spoiler with mechanically adjustable angle.

The paintwork in designo Graphite Grey Magno immediately captures the attention of anyone who’ll see the car. There are AMG sports stripes in matte Graphite Grey on the sides, as well as above the side sill panels, on the hood, roof, and the decklid. Finishing off the whole look is the 21-inch AMG cross-spoke forged wheels painted in matte black and with a high-sheen finish.

Inside the car, you’ll find AMG multicontour performance seats with memory package. These are upholstered in exclusive Nappa leather in Magma Grey/Black with yellow contrasting topstitching. Topping off the whole look of the seats are yellow seatbelts. Even the door center panels and armrests in the door and the center console are in Nappa leather in Magma Grey.

The AMG performance steering wheel is in DINAMICA microfiber with yellow contrasting topstitching, yellow 12 o’clock marking, and “Edition 1” badge. Other important things to note are the illuminated AMG door sill panels and the floor mats in black with the AMG badge.

The Edition 1 is exclusive to the GT 63 S four-door’s top-of-the-range model, which features the handcrafted AMG 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine with an output of 630 hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. It has a top speed of 195 mph and can go 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds.

Pagani Huayra Bids Farewell As It Enters Final Production Phase

pagani huayra

The final Pagani Huayra coupe is entering production, which means this would be the last time we’re going to see an inch of the sports car. The Italian luxury carmaker will finish the final iteration of the Huayra in about two months, reports from duPont Registry said recently.

This final car is the 100th example of the Huayra. Yes, there’s exactly 100 Huayras out there. You just don’t know it since these are obviously owned by the rich and famous. Like the previous 99 models, the final Huayra will feature a Mercedes-AMG built 6.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-12 engine that produces 700 horsepower and 811 pound-feet of torque.

It makes sense for Pagani to end the coupe’s run after seven years. Pagani inked an agreement for the supply of AMG engines for just 100 units, which signals this 100th example of the Huayra. Remember that the first supercar was launched in 2011 as a follow-up to the equally capable Zonda.

The final Huayra, marking the last AMG unit to be delivered from the German automaker, will be called the “Il Ultimo.” This will be especially produced and dedicated to Brett David, the chief executive officer of Prestige Imports. As such, it will have a “German flare” in honor of the hypercar’s AMG-sourced engine.

To further bring acknowledgement to its German roots, the final Huayra will bear the livery colors on Lewis Hamilton’s F1 car, a Mercedes. On the Huayra, the color scheme is stunning and jaw-dropping. It used subdued gray as the primary hue and turquoise-aqua will be used for interior striping, the mirrors, and the tire sidewalls. The interior will receive a similar treatment. Turquoise and gray colors will cover the dashboard, the doors, and the center console. The seats will be covered in white leather.

Pagani CEO and founder Horacio Pagani made it clear that Pagani is going to continue. It’s just the Huayra that’s going to make its farewell. The car’s successor will “embody pure driving,” will not rely on electrification, and will still have a manual transmission.

Top 4 Reasons for You to Buy the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe

What happens when you combine the winning formulas of the Mercedes-Benz CLS and the Mercedes-AMG GT? You get the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. This is the reason why there was so much hype surrounding the high-performance car’s world premiere and why it was flocked by people since the press days of the 2018 Geneva Motor Show.

Mercedes is yet to reveal the pricing of the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe. However, it is already given that it will be very expensive considering it will take on the $85,000 to $194,800 Porsche Panamera. What we know so far is that it will roll out for buyers in mid-2018.

So why should you spend your hard earned cash for it? Here are four reasons why you should put the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe in your checklist if you are looking to buy a high-performance luxury car:

1. Unique Addition to the Mercedes-AMG GT Family

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe successfully makes itself stand out from the Mercedes-AMG GT family with its distinct four-door feature. The rest of its siblings from the base GT going up to the GT R have two-door designs.

2. Athletic and Classy Design

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door is defined by its long bonnet, Panamericana front grille, squinting Multibeam LED headlamps, jetwing front bumper design, huge air ducts, thin taillights, rear diffuser, low greenhouse, retractable rear wing, quadruple exhaust tips, and a combination of AMG performance wheels and tires. On the other hand, its curvaceous and smooth exterior is an excellent manifestation of Mercedes’ “Sensual Purity” design philosophy.

3. Luxurious Aura

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe also carries the DNA of the Mercedes-Benz CLS. If you strip away all the Mercedes-AMG GT elements of the four-door high-performance car leaving only its shell, it can be noticed that its form is all too similar to the Mercedes-AMG CLS 53. That’s because both are riding on the E-Class platform.

The interior of the two only vary in layout but you can find that most of the tech within the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe are just spiced up versions of the ones found in the E-Class and CLS. However, the arrangement of the controls of the AMG GT 4-Door Coupe follows its AMG GT siblings.

4. Performance

The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe is available in three performance configurations and its power is governed by an AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G transmission. It starts with the Mercedes-AMG GT 53 4MATIC with 3.0-liter inline-six that can deliver 435 hp combined with EQ Boost providing it an extra 22 hp, and 520 Nm of torque. Next is the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4MATIC equipped with a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine capable of delivering 585 hp and 800 Nm of torque.

The top trim of the range is the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+. It has the engine of the AMG GT 63 4MATIC but with an upgrade that lets it produce 639 hp and 900 Nm of torque. The auto can reach speeds of up to 310 km/h, and its 0-100 km/h acceleration can be achieved in merely 3.4 seconds.

Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon: The Fastest Wagon in the World

mercedes-amg e63 wagon (4)

The Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon is not your average family car. Beneath its luxurious exterior lies an engine with a performance that can beat even the likes of the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.

Performance

According to Mercedes-Benz USA, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon is the fastest station wagon in the world. Beneath the hood of the car rests a handcrafted AMG 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. The unit has an output of 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque at 2,500 to 4,500 rpm. The auto operates on a 4MATIC all-wheel drive configuration. Then, its power is distributed through an AMG SPEEDSHIFT MCT 9-speed transmission that uses a wet clutch.

Putting the pedal to the metal will allow the Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon to reach 60 mph from a complete stop in just 3.4 seconds. That beats the acceleration of the Mustang and the Camaro. On the other hand, the maximum speed of the auto is electronically-capped at 180 mph.

Mercedes noted that when the car was tested by a journalist at the Nordschleife of the Nuerburgring track, it conquered the whole circuit with its lap time of 7:45.19.

Design

The Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon is the high-performance version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon. Therefore, it has all the signature look of Mercedes’ midrange luxury vehicle such as the curvaceous corners, glossy finish and striking body lines. Its appeal is further highlighted by its improved stance, thanks to AMG’s suspension; jet wing-inspired front bumper complete with air intakes; rear diffuser; rear lip spoiler at the roofing; quad exhaust tips; and chrome horizontal grille with black vertical slats in the background.

The most noticeable part of the E63 S Wagon is its 12.3-inch digital display. The gauges also come in carbon fiber look to enhance the sporty elements of the car’s cockpit. Moreover, it has AMG Performance Seats and Steering Wheel as well as nappa leather surfaces.

Pricing

The Mercedes-AMG E63 S has a starting price of $106,950, excluding its $995 delivery and destination fees.

3 Things We Learned From The 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4 Spy Shots

We saw the concept for the 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 4 back during the Geneva auto show in March, and to say we’re excited is quite an understatement. Last week, spy shots and video of its prototype showed that the standalone sedan is already in the late stage of development.

The production version will closely resemble and will stand similar to the concept shown in March. This looks to be beneficial for people who caught up with the craze of the concept.

1. Release date

The standalone sedan, which will be called the Mercedes-AMG GT 4 based on sources, will be on sale starting 2018 as a 2019 model year. This is AMG’s third standalone model just after the GT sports car and the Project One hypercar, which should have launched by next year.

Mercedes will also be releasing a new generation of CLS, which means an internal competition among these cars.

2. Exterior

The sexy lines of the GT sports car will be slapped on the Mercedes-AMG GT 4. The difference is that the headlights will have an angular shape and the hood has been shortened in length. Since this is a sedan, the wheelbase was stretched and there are two extra doors for the rear passengers.

The massive rear spoiler, unfortunately, can’t be seen yet because of the ultra-secretive way this has been camouflaged. But based on the overall look of the car, the concept will be a good foundation to render how the rear side would look like.

The sedan will use the MRA rear-wheel-drive architecture we usually see on the latest C- and E-Class instead of stretching the GT sports car’s aluminum spaceframe architecture. But to make the rear-wheel-drive architecture compatible to the AMG, it needs to be strengthened and made more weightless.

3. Drivetrain

Mercedes will use AMG’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine to produce 500 horsepower. Though the concept showed a hybrid system, it is highly unlikely that we’ll see this during the launch. However, a hybrid system with an output of 805 horsepower will be possibly available for a range-topping version of the sedan.

Battle of Top Speed: BMW M6 Gran Coupe Vs. Mercedes-AMG E63 S

mercedes-amg e63 s vs bmw m6 gran coupe

The 2017 models of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-AMG E63 S surely scream “high-performance”. Being products of the top producers of luxury vehicles in the world, many car enthusiasts dream about having one of them in their garages.

In the video posted below, we will see how the two fare in terms of their top speeds. But before that, let us take a look at the engine specs of the two.

BMW M6 Gran Coupe

The Bimmer packs a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. The unit has an output of 600 hp and 700 Nm of torque. The numbers push the auto from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. The top speed of the car is electronically-locked at 300 km/h but the Competition Package fitted in it increases it to 305 km/h.

Mercedes-AMG E63 S

The AMG E63 S has a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine. The power unit is capable of producing 12 hp more than the M6 Gran Coupe and its torque is 150 Nm more than its rival. The figures allow the Merc to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in mere 3.4 seconds. The maximum speed of the performance car is electronically-capped at 300 km/h.

Video

Watch the video below to see how each car fares when pushed to its limits:

And the Winner Is… (Spoiler Alert)

Both cars delivered their promise to deliver around 300 km/h. The dials of the two indicate that they even surpassed the limit.

The speedometer of the M6 Gran Coupe appears to have reached the 305 threshold. On the other hand, the AMG E63 S seems to have surpassed the competition, though the mounted indicator of the Mercedes shown in the video only read 302 km/h.

Furthermore, the Mercedes showed faster acceleration time than the BMW. The M6 looked shaky also after reaching the 300 km/h limit while the E63 S was more stable.

As an added note, the high-performance E-Class looked more stunning in terms of interior design than the M6.

3 Reasons Why the Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 is Awesome

mercedes-amg gt3 edition 50 (4)

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 was just unveiled. As its name implies, the car was made in line with the celebration of the 50th anniversary of AMG.

The special edition car offers many upgrades compared to the standard Mercedes-AMG GT3, which makes it a must-have for collectors. Here are the key features of the vehicle that truly makes it awesome:

1. Engine

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 still uses the 6.3-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine. The unit is capable of producing 622 hp and 635 Nm of torque. The power is distributed through a six-speed sequential racing transmission. The mentioned elements allow the auto to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in merely 3.8 seconds. The maximum speed of the vehicle is electronically-limited to 332 km/h.

It should be noted that the 6.3-liter V8 used by the AMG GT3 is already a rare hardware and it is the last naturally-aspirated engine to be used by Mercedes in its cars. It was used by the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 but the Mercedes-AMG GT3 carried it over due to its reliability, low-maintenance and power.

2. Styling

The Edition 50 car sports a more aggressive look than its original version. It is fitted with new carbon fiber materials plus its bumpers, side skirts, diffuser and rear wing have been redesigned. The body of the auto takes a gray metallic finish. The noticeable additions in the special GT3 include the big vents above the front fenders and “50 Years of Driving Performance” badges on the sides.

Inside, the car gets new carbon fiber racing seats, rollcage and GT3-inspired, racing steering wheel. A couple of upgrades can be seen in its instrument cluster too. The same “50 Years of Driving Performance” badges can be found in its safety harnesses.

3. Exclusivity

The Mercedes-AMG GT3 Edition 50 is only limited to five units. It is specifically made for collectors who love motorsport.

Exterior

AMG Future Performance: Sportwagen-Marke präsentiert Hybrid-Showcar: Mercedes-AMG GT Concept – Driving Performance der Zukunft

The Mercedes-AMG GT Concept is the four-door variant of the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car. Significant improvements can be seen in the styling of the concept vehicle compared to its two-door counterpart.

The AMG GT Concept copies many exterior elements found in the AMG GT. However, due to the four-door design of the concept car, it appears more muscular and spacious than its AMG GT sibling. The body lines on the sides are also removed to give way to a smoother body that allows the artistic reflection of light from the vehicle’s surroundings. Then the front grille of the auto adopts the Panamericana design found in the facelifted AMG GT.

Engine

AMG Future Performance: Sportwagen-Marke präsentiert Hybrid-Showcar: Mercedes-AMG GT Concept – Driving Performance der Zukunft

The AMG GT Concept makes use of the new 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine of Mercedes. The combustion unit is paired with an electric motor to give it a performance boost. According to Daimler, the concept vehicle was able to produce up to 600 kW in its latest testing. The automaker aims to make the zero to 100 km/h acceleration of the car to be achieved in under three seconds.

The four-door AMG GT can be driven using solely its combustion engine. The driver can opt to use its electric motor alone too. To utilize the maximum performance of the car, its operating mode can be set to use both power units to fully take advantage of its hybrid drivetrain.

4 Things You Must Know About The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA

AMG GLA45 with AMG Performance Studio Package

The Mercedes-Benz GLA just went under the knife for a few facelifts and additional features. But in order to see what actually changed, you will have to squint your eyes. Yes, they are that minuscule.

1. New GLA-Class Has Two Models

The 2018 GLA from Mercedes has two new models: the base GLA250 and the AMG GLA45. The base model produces 208 horsepower from its I4, seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, standard front-wheel drive, and optional all-wheel drive.

The AMG GLA45, on the other hand, has a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 375 horsepower. Standard to the AMG version is an all-wheel drive system.

2. Visual Changes Are Minimal

Here are what you can expect from the car’s exterior changes: newly designed front and rear bumpers, new wheel designs, and LED headlights optional on the GLA250 but standard on the AMG GLA45. European models will get taillights that dim depending on the time of the night. Issues with LED lights are usually on how it hurts the eye when point directly.

3. Interior Updates Are Also Minor

When you sit inside the cabin of the new Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, you’ll notice how it changed so minimal you can almost not see the updates. The seat covers are new on the GLA250. There’s chrome around the control panels, center console, and seat adjustment switches. The new set of gauges has red needles while the air conditioning vents have more noticeable accents around them.

4. Difference Between The GLA250 And GLA45

Since the AMG GLA45 is expected to be priced higher, it’s safe to say that it has a more aggressive styling than the GLA250. The AMG GLA 45 has a rear spoiler lip, larger wheels, and a more aggressive front end. Standard to the GLA45 are sport seats with red contrast stitching. There’s plenty of AMG badging in the cabin while the whole dashboard is covered in premium leatherette.

3 Cool Features of Dime Racing Package for Mercedes-AMG GT

mercedes-amg-gt-1

California-based Dime Racing tuning firm just unveiled its new package for the 2017 Mercedes-AMG GT. The upgraded car costs $150,200, and only 100 units of it will be sold in select Mercedes-AMG dealers in the US.

Is it worth that amount?

Here are the 3 amazing features of the new package of Dime Racing for the Mercedes-AMG GT to help you decide if it is worth every dollar in its $150,200 price tag:

1. Engine

Dime Racing retained the handcrafted 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine of the Mercedes-AMG GT. However, the tuner installed new turbochargers in the car. Then, it tuned its ECU and gave it a better cooling system. The resulting output from all that work is a total bump of 745 hp and 731 lb-ft of torque.

The tuner hadn’t released any information about the zero to 100 km/h acceleration of the auto yet. But looking at the Mercedes-AMG GT R with 585 hp that is capable of sprinting from zero to 100 km/h in only 3.6 seconds, expect the AMG GT with the Dime Racing package to go quicker than that.

2. Exterior

Dime Racing only gave minor updates in the exterior of the AMG GT. Among the upgrades include some aerodynamic elements. After that, the tuner improved the suspension of the auto and fitted it with new wheels.

3. Freebies and

The tuning specialist is throwing away free car cover plus a Växjö watch from Stefan Johansson, a former Formula One driver and 1999 winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Each unit will also get its own Dime Racing-specific VIN as a proof of its authenticity and a badge of its collectibility. Lastly, the company is providing a bumper-to-bumper warranty for the car.
