tune in to the quiet sound of electric vehicles. Now forget about it. When Mercedes-AMG launches a hybrid, it does so with a thunderous bang of power. At the Shanghai Formula 1 weekend, Mercedes-AMG unveiled the new top-of-the-line model in its GT series, where the ultra-powerful E PERFORMANCE hybrid powertrain combines a V8 engine with an electric motor for blistering response and powerful power delivery.

The Mercedes-AMG GT63 SE PERFORMANCE is not just a car, it is a technological thoroughbred. With a system power of 600 kW (816 hp) and an incredible 1,420 Nm of torque, this machine is not only fast, it's lightning fast. It accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in an incredible 2.7 seconds, while the top speed is also 320 km/h, which sets a new standard in the AMG series.

The E PERFORMANCE hybrid drive, which combines a 4.0-liter V8 biturbo engine and an electric drive unit, is an example of engineering excellence. The electric motor mounted on the rear axle has a direct impact on the performance and enables precise power transmission to the wheels. With this, the car responds to your every wish, and at the same time provides additional momentum when starting or overtaking.

The active aerodynamics system, which includes a retractable rear spoiler and an active component in the chassis, together with the AMG ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL suspension with semi-active roll stabilization, ensures the perfect balance between driving dynamics and comfort. This combination makes the GT63 SE PERFORMANCE adaptable both on the racetrack and on the city streets.

The AMG GT 63 SE PERFORMANCE includes active rear axle steering as standard. Up to a speed of 100 km/h, the rear wheels steer in the opposite direction to the front, and at higher speeds in the same direction, which ensures greater agility and stability of the vehicle. The system allows easier handling of the vehicle at the limit of performance and less steering effort due to a more direct steering ratio of the front wheels.

The rear of the new two-door model of the AMG GT series features some standout innovations, such as the integrated filler flap and the model name in red. On the side of the vehicle is the "E PERFORMANCE" label, which indicates the hybrid drive. As standard, the vehicle is equipped with 20-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a ten-spoke design, optimized for aerodynamics, painted in tantalum gray and with a shiny finish. In addition, various colors and equipment details are available, as well as design packages that emphasize the exterior appearance, including 21-inch forged wheels in various designs and color variants.

This model brings not only performance, but also unrivaled exclusivity and flexibility. With a wide range of customization options, including the MANUFAKTUR program, every AMG GT63 SE PERFORMANCE owner can truly express their personal style. The interior offers a variety of options from sporty to ultra-comfortable seats, available with premium materials such as Nappa leather with diamond stitching.

The interior of the Mercedes-AMG GT63 SE PERFORMANCE is designed to suit both sports enthusiasts and those looking for maximum comfort. Boasting a portrait-format screen on the center console, the cockpit is driver-centric and offers a harmonious overall experience. The practical design with the option of additional seats 2+2 offers plenty of space inside, which ensures a spacious and comfortable ride.

One of the main attractions of the interior are the electrically adjustable AMG sports seats, which combine excellent lateral support with exceptional comfort over long distances. Three massage programs further increase comfort while driving. For even greater pampering, the ENERGIZING Plus package combines seat functions and lighting effects into relaxing comfort. Even more sporty are the optional AMG performance seats with integrated headrests and ventilation openings on the backs.

The extensive selection of seat covers reflects the range from comfort to performance oriented features. One- and two-tone Nappa leather covers are included, and the MANUFAKTUR Nappa leather with diamond stitching is particularly elegant. The sporty touch is emphasized by the combination of Nappa leather with MICROCUT microfibers and contrast stitching in yellow or red, which adds a dynamic and attractive look to the interior.
The price of this engineering masterpiece has not yet been announced, but given its capabilities and exclusivity, we can expect it to attract the attention of lovers of high-end vehicles. The Mercedes-AMG GT63 SE PERFORMANCE is not just a car, it is a statement of power, innovation and individual style. Welcome to the future where "too much" is just right for those who want more.
