Mercedes has launched a new variant of its popular SUV, the G63 AMG, the Edition 463. The company has been launching new special edition models of the G63 on a regular basis. They previously launched the G63 Crazy Colour and now this edition.
The vehicle is priced at Rs 2.17 crore, ex-showroom Pune. The normal G63 AMG will set you back by Rs 2.06 crores where as the G63 Crazy colour will cost you Rs 2.18 crores.
So let us get to the changes. The Edition 463 was unveiled in 2015 to celebrate 35 years of the G-Class. India is finally getting that edition now. Changes include new 21″ 5-spoke alloy wheels with matte black finish, AMG Sport strips on the isde, stainless steel underride guard and protective strips finished in aluminium. Other than that, there are no real changes to the outside of the vehicle. It still continues to be boxy and get the LED DRLs below the headlamps.
On the inside, you get a single-tone dashboard with black leather upholstery. There are a lot of AMG carbon fiber inserts across the cabin. It also gets colour coordinated stitching on the dashboard, doors, seat and head restraint.
Under the hood is where there are no changes as such. Power comes fromt the same 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 that produces 563 Bhp and 760 Nm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed Speedshift Plus AMG transmission. The vehicle does 0-100 in 5.4 seconds, which is massively quick given that it weighs over 2 tonnes. It has a top speed that is limited to 210 kmph and it has a loading capacity of upto 2250 liters. The best part about the G63 has to be the side exhausts which have a really nice note. The best part of the G63 is the fact that it has 3 100 % locking differential locks, an off-road reduction gear and an off-road Electronic Traction Control system.
