Spyshots: 2013 Mercedes Benz GL63 AMG
Yes, this is the brand GL63 AMG, the only 500+ horsepower hot Mercedes with seven seats. Ridiculous, isn’t it? But you definitely don’t want to mess with the monster in these spy photos we’ve provided you with, right?!
The real muscle power of this car is in its new 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8, producing slightly more power and torque than the 6.2-liter it replaces. This new engine should pack 544 horsepower in its base form, and 571 horsepower if you decide to unshackle it and opt for the AMG Performance Pack.
Although we see the appeal of big power plus big vehicle, there’s really no point in Mercedes trying to make this thing sporty. Just look at it wallow about in the turns!
