Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Spied in US With Tailpipes

Boosting Power for Facelift Model?

Following its worldwide unveiling in 2021, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance is getting ready for a restyling. Kindel Auto recently spied the revised iteration of this top-end model on US roads with a prototype license plate. Even better, this sighting gives clues regarding the modifications that will soon occur, including some engine tweaks.

The spy video listed on YouTube has been embedded below; it sees the electrified GT 63 in a shrouded facade, implying that we won’t just have alternate color choices but additionally refreshes to its front layout. Despite this, practice lets us know that truly radical changes are unlikely; it’s probably the case that there’ll be only minor tweaks to the bumper and grille.

The rolling test vehicle in the video was unmistakable, with its “V8 Biturbo E Performance” badge prominently displayed on the fender and the GT 63 S emblem at the rear.

Nevertheless, the duo of peculiar-looking exhausted tailpipes stood out to us. These exhaust pipes likely won’t be making it to the actual market, implying that Mercedes-AMG is possibly tinkering with some powertrain changes — potentially resulting in a betterment of the existing potency of its hybrid E Performance model.

The AMG GT 63 S E Performance currently provides 831 horsepower and a hefty 1,033 lb-ft of torque.

Figures are the result of a blend between a 4.0-liter V8 with twin-turbochargers, a motor driven by electricity and a 6.1-kWh battery pack. Unaltered, the GT63 S E Performance is capable of reaching 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and a peak velocity of 196 mph.

It may be best to approach our evaluation with a modicum of caution, as Mercedes could still be looking into ways to enhance the efficiency of the four-wheel coupe. They could possibly work on augmenting the all-electric range of the hybried version, which presently stands at an unsatisfactory 7.5 miles – yet this is not a likely possibility, given that Performance AMGs typically utilise electricity just for heightened performance, instead of electric driving.

Despite our expectations, we are not anticipating a tremendous addition in power – at an equivalent degree as that of the Brabus-modified GT 63 S E Performance engine, which can make up to 930 hp, and certainly not even close to the 1,331-hp tuning for the non-hybrid GT63.
