Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance 2023: pricing and specification announced for Australia


The very long-named AMG GT 63 S E Performance will have peak outputs of 620kW/1400Nm and will be priced from $399,900 before on-road costs 

Mercedes-AMG has announced that its long-awaited GT 63 S E Performance four-door super coupe is now available to order in Australia. 

Priced from $399,900 before on-road costs, the GT 63 S E Performance is the most powerful series production model in AMG history

Powered by a hybrid 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine paired with an electric motor, the new super coupe has combined system outputs of 620kW/1400Nm

That’s even more power and torque than the turbo four-cylinder hybrid Mercedes-AMG C 63 S E Performance with 500kW/1020Nm.

Mercedes-AMG claims that the new GT 63 S E Performance is capable of sprinting to 100km/h in just 2.9 seconds, yet weighs an incredible 2380kg – more than a 2256kg Toyota Hilux Rogue dual-cab ute. 

The new Mercedes-AMG super coupe will go head to head against the current Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid model that produces less power and torque at 515kW/870Nm but costs less at $435,100 before on-road costs here in Australia.

What makes the GT 63 S E Performance a special performance car?

We’ve already detailed a lot on this car with a special article surrounding its engineering

But what makes this a unique car is not just its absurd numbers, but also its hybrid technologies.

The AMG super coupe uses a 6.1kWh battery pack

Onboard is a 6.1kWh battery pack which powers a rear-mounted electric motor that produces a maximum 150kW of power. 

The electric motor is integrated into the rear axle through a two-speed transmission and a limited-slip differential. Mercedes’ 4Matic all-wheel drive system is standard, however it can go into full rear-drive ‘drift’ mode, if you so please.

But the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance is also a plug-in hybrid, meaning it can be physically plugged in and charged at home or at a public station. Electric-only driving range is just 12km, however, which wouldn’t get you across the Sydney CBD, for instance.
