The bold and muscular Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupé is the performance standard-bearer for the GLE Coupé range. Combining the sleek style of a coupé and the ruggedness of a robust SUV with Mercedes-AMG’s exhilarating dynamism, the GLE 63 S Coupé redefines standards of luxury, agility and performance in the crossover sector.

The GLE 63 S Coupé is powered by a 5,461 cc biturbo direct-injection V8 engine, which generates 585 hp at 5,500 rpm and 760 Nm of torque, which remains constant from 1,750 to 5,250 rpm. Driving through an AMG Speedshift 7G-Tronic Plus transmission recalibrated for even greater responsiveness, the GLE 63 S Coupé will sprint to 62 mph in just 4.2 seconds, and onto a 155 mph electronically limited top speed, while delivering exceptional mid-range punch. The optional AMG Drivers Package boosts the top speed to 174 mph. Combined economy and CO2 emission figures are 23.7 mpg and 278 g/km.

The biturbo engine produces its exceptional levels of performance, economy and low emissions through an innovative combination of high-tech features. These include spray-guided direct-injection, twin turbo-chargers, four valves per cylinder with camshaft adjustment, air/water intercooling, alternator management and a weight-optimised AMG sports exhaust with chromed double twin tailpipes that contribute to the engine’s engaging soundtrack.

The AMG Speedshift 7G-Tronic Plus transmission offers three driving modes – Controlled Efficiency, Sport and Manual, while the AMG Performance 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive layout features a transfer case that splits torque 40:60 front to rear for greater cornering adjustability. The GLE 63 S Coupé also features a new rear-axle differential with a lightweight aluminium case.

The GLE 63 S Coupé is underpinned by a chassis and suspension layout tuned to deliver exceptional levels of agility and dynamism. The standard-fit AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with AirMATIC features bespoke struts and ADS Plus continuously variable dampers. Active Curve System rolls stabilisation is also standard. DYNAMIC SELECT supports this with AMG-tuned drive programmes that adjust throttle response, gear-change strategy, ESP® thresholds, steering power assistance and the damper rates to offer a wide variety of distinct driving experiences.

The AMG high-performance braking system minimises stopping distances, maximises sensitivity and feel and offers high resistance to fading. Ventilated and perforated brake discs – 390 x 36 mm at the front and 345 x 26 mm at the rear – ensure outstanding deceleration. Six-piston fixed calipers are fitted at the front, while the rear axle has single-piston combined floating calipers.
