2012 Mercedes Benz ML63 AMG Performance SUV With Improved Mileage And Power Revealed

Mercedes-Benz is one of my favourite favorite carmaker and one thing that really interests me is its AMG brand. AMG is a subsidiary of Merc and specializes in high performance cars. The company picks production Merc models and after a bunch of modifications, turns them into high performance machines.

AMG’s next pick was the Mercedes M Class and recently they revealed it as the 2012 Mercedes Benz ML63 AMG. The ML63 features more power and an improvement of 33 % in mileage over its predecessor. The AMG version sports a 5.5 Liter V8 biturbo engine developing maximum power of 518 BHP and 700 Nm of peak torque representing an increase of 15 BHP and 60 Nm.

An AMG Performance Package is also available with the car which boosts its power and torque to 550 BHP and 760 Nm respectively. Acceleration from zero to 100 km/h takes 4.7 seconds and 4.6 seconds, top speed remains 155 mph (electronically limited) and 174 mph for the Standard ML63 and with the AMG Performance Package respectively. Other included things with the AMG performance package are a high-quality genuine carbon fiber engine cover, red painted calipers and a premium leather(DINAMICA) AMG Performance steering wheel.

On the occasion Ola Källenius, Chairman of Mercedes-AMG GmbH, said,“Like its predecessors, the 2012 ML63 AMG sets new standards in terms of performance, exclusivity and an outstanding driving experience – plus the efficiency factor, which is acquiring ever greater emphasis at Mercedes-AMG. As the inventor of the high-performance SUV, we remain true to the philosophy which we introduced in 1999 with the 2000 ML55 AMG and continued with the 2007 ML63 AMG.”
