Mercedes-Benz Malaysia vice president of sales and marketing Mark Raine with the newly launched Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+.
SEPANG: Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has just launched a trio of cars to expand its current lineup of AMG performance vehicles at the Sepang International Circuit.
The new additions to its AMG performance lineup start with the brutal looking Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ costing RM1,798,888 (on-the-road without insurance).
Next on the list is the sporty two-door Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Coupé, priced at RM820,888.
Lastly, the more conservative 4-door Mercedes-AMG C 63 S costs RM768,888.
The three cars are fully-imported and are equipped with a powerful 4.0-litre (3,982cc) twin-turbo V8 engine producing 510hp from 5,500 to
6,250rpm and 700Nm of torque from 2,000 to 4,500rpm
However, the GT 63 S 4MATIC+'s engine gets tuned up to 639hp from 5,500 to 6,500rpm and 900Nm of torque from 2,500 to 4,500rpm.
The engines are handbuilt in Affalterbach, Germany and are in accordance with the AMG's "one man, one engine" philosophy.
Power is managed by a nine-speed AMG Speedshift Multi-Clutch Technology 9G automatic transmission that allows the sedan to sprint from 0 to 100kph in 4.0 seconds with the coupe taking 3.9 seconds before both cars reach a top speed of 290kph.
The GT 63 S 4MATIC+, on the other hand, shaves the time down to 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 315kph.
Furthermore, the new cars - like all vehicles from Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, are covered by a four-year warranty (two-year manufacturer and two-year in-country extended warranty) with unlimited mileage and Service24h Roadside Assistance service.
An extended Limited Warranty Programme for one or two-year plans are also available and comes with unlimited mileage as well.
Inspired by the two-door Mercedes-AMG GT, the all-wheel driven four-door AMG GT 63 S 4MATIC+ comes as standard with a host of AMG packages that include an Aerodynamics package, Carbon-Fibre package, Night package, light display and a performance exhaust system - all designed and honed in Affalterbach, Germany.
The GT 63 S rolls on 21-inch AMG lightweight forged wheels that partially obscure the yellow-painted performance brake callipers and cross-drilled discs and have been further equipped with Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus for the multibeam LED headlights and sunroof.
Other exterior equipment includes the AMG Ride Control+ suspension system, AMG Dynamic Plus package and the AMG Dynamic Select system.
Inside, the cabin has been accented by matt carbon-fibre trim and have been fitted with a multi-function sports steering wheel (with centre marker) wrapped in Dinamica microfiber, Nappa leather and Dinamica microfibre combination upholstery, powered sports seats with memory function and an Air-Balance package.
The 395-litre boot can be expanded by an added 60 litres located beneath the boot floor and with the backrests folded down, this capacity increases to 1,324 litres.
Furthermore, the cabin also features keyless-entry with push-start button, automatic Thermotronic climate controls, photochromic rear view mirror, yellow seat belts, heads-up display, Widescreen digital cockpit, touchpad, wireless charging (front and rear), and illuminated door sill panels with AMG lettering.
Other features include an AMG Track Pace (lap-timer), Driving Assistance package, Easy-Pack tailgate, tyre pressure monitoring system, handsfree boot operation and Tirefit (tyre repair kit).
Entertainment comes from a Burmester surround sound system with Apple CarPlay, Comand Online, 360-degree camera view camera system, Active Distance Assist Distronic and Active Parking Assist with Parktronic.
The C 63 S sedan gets key features such as the 19-inch forged lightweight wheels with a cross-spoke design that partially hide the red callipers, panoramic sunroof, Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus and multibeam LED for the front headlights as well as power folding mirrors.
Also included are the exterior carbon-fibre package, night package, sports tyres, spoiler lip and performance exhaust system from AMG.
Inside, the cabin is accented with carbon-fibre and light longitudinal-grain aluminium while the AMG two-tone red pepper and black Nappa leather take care of the upholstery.
The powered front sports seats have four-way lumbar support with memory function and heating and the AMG performance multifunction steering wheel gets wrapped in a combination of leather and Dinamica microfibre.
There is also a heads-up display as well as a touchpad controller to navigate through the menus on the 10.25-inch Media display or view the outside world from within the car via the 360-degree camera system while the driver gets a 12.3-inch full-digital instrument display.
With an analogue clock on the centre of the dashboard, entertainment is processed by the Burmester surround sound system that comes with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Comand Online.
As for the Coupe variant, its list of equipment is very similar to the sedan but other than the lack of two extra doors in comparison, its 19-inch lightweight forged wheels have a five twin-spoke design and it also now features a safety belt feeder.
