Outfitted with a roaring 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe is an absolute beast of a thing, as Matt Farah recently found out.
All AMG-badged SUVs from Mercedes-Benz are pretty special and the GLC 63 S Coupe is no different. While you may not be a fan of the ongoing craze of coupe-like SUVs, there’s no doubting the vehicle’s performance.
The aforementioned engine is good for 503 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of torque and comes mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive system. Mercedes-Benz says the GLC 63 S Coupe can hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds, although Farah notes that quicker times have been recorded. Top speed sits at 174 mph (280 km/h).
Interestingly, while the United States gets the flagship GLC 63 S Coupe, it does not get the ‘regular’, non-Coupe GLC 63 S SUV. That’s a shame as we think the regular model looks better and also happens to be more practical, but we guess the powers-that-be at Stuttgart know better.
While the vehicle is a beast in the straight-line, it is also very quick through the corners and handles very well despite its weight. Then there’s the fact that, as an SUV, it is quite practical and can easily, and comfortably, ferry around a family.
