This is the 2023 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 and GT 63 S 4-door Coupe and, although some fans of the model claim that very few aesthetic changes are visualized, the new revised GT 4 line will launch in the United States later this year.
Part of its aesthetic
By modifying the exterior design 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 exterior air intakes are slightly wider than before and each incorporates three vertical fins unlike the horizontal fins of pre-facelift models.
A group 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 range of colours has grown and now includes Arabian Grey, Cashmere White Magno and China Blue. In total, buyers can now choose from four matte paints, five metallic tones and two solid colors, including the new Starling Blue Metallic and Starling Blue Magno shades that were first introduced in last year’s refreshed 4-door, six-cylinder GT. The new AMG Night Package II and a combination of the Night Package and the AMG Exterior Carbon Fiber Package are also offered.
The German automaker has also expanded Manufaktur’s range of interior options with the new Nappa leather and diamond padding. There is also a bi-colour AMG Performance steering wheel and high-haired AMG floor mats with embroidered AMG inscription. 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 configuration is based on mercedes-Benz 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 greater comfort and even sharper driving dynamics.
The system also features a suspension control unit that analyzes data, including information from wheel acceleration and 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 driving modes or independently via a dedicated damping button.
For day-to-day life 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, the current record holder at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in the executive car category. To further refine the profile of the German manufacturer as a Performance Luxury brand, it was also decided to expand the individualization options, thus offering the entire clientele an even higher level of lifestyle and exclusivity.
The mechanical qualities of the car
No changes have been made to the duo’s engines. As such, both feature a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that in the GT 63 delivers 575 horsepower between 5500 and 6500 rpm and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) from 2350 to 5000 rpm. The GT 63 S has a more growling touch and is rated at 630 horsepower from 5500 to 6500 rpm and 664 lb-ft (900 Nm) from 2500 to 4500 rpm.
