Mercedes G63 AMG Performance Specs Announced, Commercial Released [Video]
We'll remind you that the G63 AMG uses a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 unit delivering 544 hp at 5,500 rpm and a peak torque of 760 Nm (560 lb-ft) between 2,000 and 5,000 rpm. So, what does than mean on the road? The 0 to 62 mph sprint is completed in 5.4 seconds and, if you keep abusing the pedal on the right, the speedo will reach 130 mph (210 km/h).
As a comparison, the G65 AMG, which uses a twin-turbo 6-liter powerplant producing 612 hp between 4,300 and 5,600 rpm and a torque of 1,000 Nm (738 lb-ft) between 2300–4300 rpm, needs 5.3 seconds to hit 62 mph and offers a top speed of 143 mph (230 km/h).
Like we said, Mercedes also released the first promo video for the G63 AMG, which is basically inviting us to hoon the vehicle on and off the road during the same trip. Will do!
