Mercedes-Benz knows its customers. That is why it decided to offer an SUV that can either be ordered in a three-row configuration or it can become one of the most luxurious rides out there. That’s what the Maybach department does. But what happens when AMG takes a shot at it?
Well, the result is the Mercedes-AMG GLS 63. It’s an unexpected outcome, but it is welcomed. Well-off people can make all kinds of choices, and if a V8-powered family hauler is what they want… They should be able to buy it!
The 2022 Mercedes-AMG GLS 63 has a starting price of $135,400 in the U.S. It boasts 603 HP (612 PS) and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of torque. This gives it the possibility to reach 60 mph (97 kph) in just 4.1 seconds. Thanks to its nine-speed automatic transmission and a handcrafted engine with mild hybrid drive, the SUV can reach an EPA-rated fuel economy of around 18 mpg (13 l/100 km) on the highway.
Larte design does not change one bit about the performance. What they offer is a visual upgrade. The company’s body kit enhances the proportions of the SUV and gives it a meaner, sportier look. The added carbon fiber does not improve the performance numbers, but it turns the GLS 63 into an even more interesting top-tier SUV.
Larte says the car you’ll see in the video down below received the “Winner” treatment. This replaces the stock grille with a carbon fiber one, and the front bumper gets bigger air intakes. The hood is also changed with a carbon fiber one. At the rear, there’s a spoiler with integrated brake lights that reminds us of racing. Besides all this, the body kit includes mirror covers in gloss black, Larte emblems, and 23-inch wheels.
According to the company’s own estimates, it takes around six hours to add the entire body kit.
