Mercedes-Benz has revealed the top-of-the-line version of the new generation G Class, the Mercedes-AMG G 63.

With the driver’s package, which includes specific wheels and tires, the limit is raised to 239 km / h. The new Mercedes-AMG G 63 is equipped with a 4.0-biturbo V8 engine capable of developing 585 horsepower and 850 Nm of torque. It has 14 hp more than the previous model and produces 150 Nm more torque than the AMG GT R, which features the same V8.

2019 – MERCEDES-AMG G 63 BY URBAN AUTOMOTIVE
The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz G Class is not going unnoticed for some of the great preparers of the sector and this has given rise to some very flashy projects. If last year it was Brabus who surprised with a highly modified AMG, now comes the turn of British specialist. It seems that the British of Urban Automotive took as reference the work done by the German preparer in a Mercedes-AMG G 63, because they also resorted to a body kit where the carbon fiber predominates and the final numbers of power are similar. However, they opted for a white color that emphasizes the contrasts with the black tone used in some elements, as well as less aggressive aesthetic elements. In any case, the British notably modified the image of the German model and for that they installed modified bumpers, specific side skirts, rear diffuser of new design, a prominent rear airfoil and a series of smaller accessories that also use the fiber of carbon, such as door handles and rearview mirror housing, as well as 50 mm wide wheel arches, among other things.
Another important detail that immediately draws attention is the presence of 23-inch diameter alloy wheels in black finish, contrasting with the rest of the body, as well as a cover for the carbon fiber spare tire and auxiliary lights on top. From the interior no images have been revealed, but certainly there will also be exclusive details and high quality materials. Next to this modified image comes the main protagonist of this project: the V8 biturbo 4.0-liter engine that hides under the hood. From the factory, it offers a respectable 585 hp, but Urban Automotive specialists have chosen to increase their power to 700 hp by introducing electronic enhancements and a new exhaust system with remotely operated valves. The suspension has also been modified and now the German model is lower than the ground.
2019 – MERCEDES-AMG G 63 EDITION 1

The same will happen with the new Mercedes-AMG G 63 ,the sporty and extreme version of the irreplaceable all-terrain. Although it has also been revealed, the Mercedes-AMG G 63 is not yet available in dealerships.

It will also be in Geneva that the new Mercedes-AMG G 63 Edition 1 will appear live for the first time, following the base model. Aesthetically you will quickly differentiate yourself from the conventional Mercedes-AMG G 63 due to several specific details both for the exterior and the interior. The body will be available in 10 colors, shades that will contrast with countless details in gray, black and red. The alloy wheels, rearview mirror housings and the brake calipers themselves will be subject to the same contrast. Just take a look at the pictures below. As for the interior of the Mercedes-AMG G 63 Edition 1, it features a Nappa leather upholstery with a diamond seam pattern, microfiber-lined steering wheel and a variety of carbon fiber inserts. The combination of colors present in the exterior is transferred to the passenger compartment.
Mechanically there is no notable news, since the Mercedes-AMG G 63 Edition 1 uses the same mechanics as the base model. Therefore, underneath its hood is a 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine with 585 hp and 850 Nm of maximum torque associated with a nine-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT TCT 9G automatic transmission and an AMG Performance 4Matic all-wheel drive system. Thanks to this mechanics, the Mercedes-AMG G 63 Edition 1 is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 220 km / h.

2019 – MERCEDES-AMG GT R BY FOSTLA
When you think of sports models that need an increase in power, surely the Mercedes-AMG GT R is far from appearing in the first names of the list. Still, there are those who find exactly the opposite and it has been thinking in these clients that the German coach Fostla has just presented a more vitaminized version of this German supersport. The exterior decoration that combines yellow with urban camouflage does not go unnoticed, being the first thing that draws attention in this model, but the biggest changes are hidden under the hood of the German sports coupe. The biggest change occurred in the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, which gained 65 horsepower and 70 Nm of maximum torque. As a result, the engine started producing 650 hp of power and 770 Nm of maximum torque, numbers that allow the car to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in just over 3 seconds.

The German preparer has not revealed the cost of this transformation, but if we take into account that the conventional Mercedes-GT GT R costs in Europe around 220,000 euros, it is a car within reach of a few.
