AMG’s new fast SUV is set to arrive in Australia by the end of 2017, with a pricing topping that of the wild AMG C63 S.
The GLC63 S gets air springs with adaptive adjustable damping, 4matic AWD, fully variable torque distribution, a rear LSD, and of course the 375kW/700Nm 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine which puts its power though a nine-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
Claimed acceleration for the GLC63 S is an incredible 3.8 seconds to 100km/h, with an electronically-limited top-speed of 250km/h.
Expect it to weigh in at a couple of hundred extra kilos, though.
Something to sweeten the deal, offered by AMG, is the ‘Exterior Carbon Package’, priced at $4500, which includes carbon-fibre mirror housings and a carbon-fibre rear lip spoiler.
Or, for something which is more down MOTOR’s laneway, the $7500 hi-po ‘Ceramic Braking System’, adding 402x39mm compound ceramic front discs with 6-piston calliper, and 360x26mm rear integral brake discs with single-pistons and floating callipers.
Both packs are relatively cheap in the realm of options lists, though the ‘Edition 1’ pack stands out as best value for money.
At $10,900, it includes the brakes pack, plus new paintwork and yellow accent stripes, an aero-pack, better seats, a ‘sports’ steering wheel, plus plenty of other visual additions.
All packs are available on both styles of GLC63 S.
