The innovative Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S continues to be powered by a 375 kW four-liter twin-turbo engine, even after the facelift.
Fighting for the best time at the Nürburgring North Loop is no longer just a supersport, a sports car or a hot hatch, but also an SUV. And these are the ones that have a new king, which is a Mercedes-AMG GLC S 4Matic + modernized. The famous circuit, dubbed the Green Inferno, circulated in a time of 7 minutes, 49.369 seconds.
Mercedes-AMG GLC S did the same time as the previous supersports – the latest Ford GT made it at 7:52, Lamborghini Murciélago at 7:50. Then in the SUV category, it surpassed the Alfa Romeo Stelvo QV, which surpassed the Nordschleife in 7: 51.70 in 2017.
At the same time, AMG's innovative GLC does not help with a radically redesigned technique. The top-of-the-range AMG GLC 63 S 4Matic + continues to be powered by a 375 kW four-liter twin-turbo engine and a torque of 700 Nm. For the tiniest AMG GLC 63 4Matic +, this unit is still tuned to 350 kW and 650 Nm in both cases, it is paired with four-wheel drive and the nine-speed planetary gearbox, which has a clutch with multiple plates instead of the normal traction. Two versions of AMG GLC coupe, SUV and SUV are still available.

As a result, the top-of-the-line variant accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 3.8 seconds, and the maximum speed thanks to the standard AMG driver package is 280 km / h. The weaker AMG GLC 63 is then in one hundred for four seconds, its maximum speed is electronically limited to 250 km / h, but can be paid to change the limiter to 270 km / h.
Facial Lifting therefore focused mainly on design changes. New are the headlamp and rear lights or the double trapezoidal 90mm exhaust pipes. New 21-inch wheels or special gray graffiti can be ordered at an additional cost. Inside, you'll find a redesigned steering wheel with touchpads or other controls for the new 12.3-inch MBUX driver and 10.25-inch screen on the dashboard.
The car is equipped with an electronically controlled rear axle differential as standard, which improves cornering behavior. The braking capacity can be further improved by the optional carbon-ceramic system.
