Hardik took the delivery of his latest ride a few weeks back and it is finished in a brilliant Palladium Silver Metallic colour. The popular all-rounder was seen driving it sometime back when someone from inside the vehicle took the video of him driving and put it on the social media platform.
The new Mercedes-AMG G63 carries a big fat price tag of Rs 2.2 crore, ex-showroom, which makes it one of the most expensive SUVs in the market. Hardik was earlier seen driving in a Land Rover Range Rover finished in black colour.
The new Mercedes-AMG G63 launched last gets a host of changes and Mercedes-Benz claims that this is the best aerodynamically designed G-Wagen ever. In India, only the G63 version of the G-Wagen is available while there is a more powerful G65 version available in the international market. The new G63 AMG gets a slightly rounded shape when compared to the last version of the model. However, it retains the signature boxy design, which makes it unique and special.
It also gets a completely new headlamp cluster that gets full-LED setup. It gets circular DRL around the headlamps and the retains the bonnet-mounted turn indicators. Keeping the Geländewagen DNA alive, the car gets visible door hinges on the side too. It also gets a tailgate-mounted spare wheel and flared wheel arches that add a wide look to the SUV.
The Mercedes-AMG G63 rides on 21-inch seven-spoke alloy wheels and gets a massive 241mm of ground clearance. Even though most owners do not take the G-Wagen off-the-tarmac, it sure is an exceptional SUV when it comes to off-roading.
On the inside, the new G-Wagen gets Alcantara leather and carbon-fibre elements all around. It gets two 12.3-inch displays. One of the displays serves as the infotainment screen while the other is used as the instrument cluster of the vehicle.
The new Mercedes-AMG G63 is powered by a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 petrol engine. It produces a massive power of 585 Bhp and a peak torque of 850 Nm. Mercedes-Benz downsized the engine from the massive 5.5-litre V8 that was available with the previous generation car.
The new version gets a 9-speed automatic transmission AMG SPEEDSHIFT that transfers the power to all the four wheels. It can do 0-100 km/h in just 4.5 seconds and can reach an electronically limited top speed of 220 km/h. Owners can get AMG Driver’s package as an optional add-on and can increase the speed to 240 km/h.
