Exclamation The 805-HP AMG GT63 S E Performance Is The Quickest Mercedes Ever

This is easily the Best looking Benz in recent memory for me!
I've seen 2 on the Road and they have so much road presence and curbside appeal.
In fact, dare I say it is almost Astonish. Definitely should be a strong consideration for ANY Porsche 911 owner.
But now they have a version that has the mighty 911 TT square in its sights...

The 805-HP AMG GT63 S E Performance Is The Quickest Mercedes Ever
The GT63 S E Performance is the quickest-accelerating production vehicle Mercedes-AMG has ever buil!

2025 Mercedes-AMG GT63 S E Performance
Apr 20, 2024
You knew it was coming. For those who prefer their insane Mercedes-Benz performance cars wearing sleek two-door clothing, you have a new toy. The Mercedes-AMG GT63 S E Performance two-door coupe is here, and all indications suggest it was worth the wait.

Those familiar with Mercedes-AMG know E Performance is the company's name for hybrid power. You get 805 combined horsepower in the new GT flagship, courtesy of the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 at the front and an electric motor at the back. The gas burner alone accounts for 603 hp, but arguably the more impressive number is the combined 1,047 pound-feet of torque. With everything working together, Mercedes says the AMG GT63 S E Performance reaches 60 mph in a supercar-beating 2.7 seconds. The new-generation coupe might be bigger with its extra seats, but it's officially the fastest-accelerating AMG production model of them all.

While this is technically a plug-in hybrid, efficiency is not a factor here. The battery capacity is just 6.1 kWh, and Mercedes makes no mention of electric-only range other than to say it will be announced later. Instead, the battery's focus is on performance, and to that end, Mercedes keeps it at an optimal temperature to draw the most power when needed. Charging comes through either a plug or various driver-selectable recuperation settings, including a one-pedal mode similar to an EV.

A nine-speed dual-clutch transmission routes power through Mercedes-AMG's 4Matic+ all-wheel-drive system. In normal operation, the electric motor only drives the rear axle, but when slip is detected, power can be routed forward. Rear-axle steering and the AMG Active Ride Control suspension with roll stabilization are standard-issue here, as are carbon ceramic brakes. Six-piston calipers grip 16.5-inch rotors at the front, mounted behind standard-issue 20-inch wheels, while 15-inch rotors with single-piston calipers can be found out back. Optional wheels up to 21 inches are available.

Appearance-wise, you'd be hard-pressed to identify the E Performance version from the standard AMG GT63 unless you get up close. Mercedes adds special badging to the trunk lid, and there's a door hiding a charging port on the rear fascia. Unseen are changes to the active aero system, designed to optimize performance specifically for the hybrid powertrain. In the 2+2 cockpit, it's standard-issue Mercedes-AMG, which means it's not a bad place to be.

Pricing for the 2025 Mercedes-AMG GT63 S E Performance two-door will be announced closer to its on-sale date in late 2024.

5200 pounds? That’s only….1600 pounds more than a 911 turbo. Chonky. I’ll go out on a limb and say this does not handle anything like a 911. The depreciation is going to be painful too. Looks nice from the exterior. Still has the massive iPad dash. Meh.

MB has great (the best?) aesthetics. But not much else. For owners' sakes, I hope the thing runs more often than it doesn't.

No care how much it weighs. I'm all about magnificent GT Cars. I don't race my cars on actual Tracks. I doubt few if any here do. That being said, 2.7 sec to 60 is no slouch. Whatever car can take me that quickly and in sublime comfort and serenity, wins for me.

Well then EV wins for you. Model S Plaid or Lucid. Fastest in a straight line/acceleration.

Agreed, no heart, soul or style. They feel like a toaster compared to the MB. I've always like the look of the Beast Benz. I might go for one if not for the terrible depreciation.

DB12 eight days a week. That's just me.
Rear end is all over the place.

Besides, women make purring noises when they see an Aston.

Doors made of lead for rigidity I see
Somehow they used the word performance
I don't think the AMG people know what that definition is
1950 lbs heavier than a Supra

Id rather be seen in this than a 911, personally. No hate on the 911; this is just cooler.

You're telling me you'd have this over a lighter Bentley or Aston?

I won't go that far. Aston is my Dream Machine and Bentley GT comes right behind.

This MB is quite sexy all around though.

People that love sports cars care about weight. MB will sell a few of these to aging Boomers and that's about it. There's nothing about this car that compels me to trade my 2020 GTR.
