Part of her aesthetic
When modifying the exterior styling of the GT 63 and GT 63 S, Mercedes-AMG designers borrowed the front fascia from the existing GT 63 SE Performance flagship. As such, the outer air intakes are slightly wider than before and each incorporates three vertical fins as opposed to the horizontal fins on pre-facelift models.
A bunch of new customization options
Mercedes has also made the updated GT 63 and GT 63 S 4-door models more customizable than ever. For example, Manufaktur’s color range has grown and now includes Arabian Grey, Cashmere White Magno and China Blue.

The German automaker has also expanded Manufaktur’s range of interior options with new Nappa leather and diamond quilting. There’s also a two-tone AMG Performance steering wheel and high-pile AMG floor mats with embroidered AMG lettering. Mercedes promises to launch more individualization options in the coming years.
Other important technical extras
Improvements have also been made to the standard AMG Ride Control+ suspension system. The setup is based on Mercedes-Benz’s Air Body Control suspension and features electronically controlled adaptive and adjustable dampers. This new system has two pressure limiting valves that allow the damping force to be adjusted more precisely depending on the driving mode and driving conditions. The result is increased comfort and even sharper driving dynamics.
The system also features a suspension control unit that analyzes data, including information from acceleration and wheel trajectory sensors, to automatically adjust the damping force of each wheel in a matter of milliseconds. The various suspension settings can be adjusted via the riding modes or independently via a dedicated damping button.
For everyday and sport
In the 4-door Coupé segment, the Mercedes-AMG GT offers the perfect balance between everyday practicality and sportiness, and this is made possible by the fact that, on the one hand, it is the superior Gran Turismo for the whole family and, on the other, another, the current record holder at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in the executive car category. To further sharpen the profile of the German manufacturer as a Performance Luxury brand, it was also decided to expand the individualization options, thus offering the vast clientele an even higher level of lifestyle and exclusivity.

No changes have been made to the duo’s engines. As such, both feature a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 that in the GT 63 delivers 575 horsepower between 5,500 and 6,500 rpm and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) from 2,350 to 5,000 rpm. The GT 63 S has a touch more grunt and is rated at 630 horsepower from 5,500 to 6,500 rpm and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) from 2,500 to 4,500 rpm.
