The large sedan looks comical on the narrow track, but donít let its looks fool you.
The Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe may look odd with its bulbous exterior and sedan-like shape, but underneath is plenty of AMG goodness that makes it a capable track star. The video above shows the large coupe-like sedan attacking the NŁrburgring like any other sports car Ė and it sounds mean, too. The video shows two Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S sedans Ė a standard model and the exclusive Edition 1 offering.
For those who canít recall, the Edition 1 is a unique model only available for the carís first 12 months of sales, and it takes the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S to the next level with exterior and interior tweaks alike. However, it costs a lot. Starting price is Ä185,342 ($217,053), which makes it one of the most expensive Mercedes-AMG models you can buy outside the Project One. Start saving those pennies.
produces 630 horsepower and 664 pound-feet (900 Newton-meters) of torque, while a nine-speed automatic channels power to all four wheels. The massive luxury GT sprints to 62 mph (100 kph) sprint in 3.2 seconds. Top speed is 195 mph (315 kph). Inside, itís all about loaded luxury. Itís just as lovely as the cabin of the CLS and has plenty of one-off Edition 1 goodies to let passengers know this GT 4-Door Coupe means business.
The video shows both the Edition 1 and GT 63 S rocketing around the famous race track, the exhaust popping from the rear. Itís not as loud as youíd expect, but itís plenty to scare would-be street races from messing with an otherwise innocuous sedan. The large sedan looks comical on the narrow track, but as we know by now looks donít mean a darn thing when it comes to performance Ė and the GT 63 S certainly packs performance.
We don't know how much it'll cost in the U.S. However, we do know the 63 and 63 S will go on sale here early next year. The cheaper 53 model will follow.
