2019 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 Four-Door Is Easily One Of The Hottest Cars Of The Moment

If you ignore prototype testing and any other type of Mercedes-commissioned test run involving the 4-door Mercedes-AMG GT 63, this here might just be the very first privately owned example spotted in traffic while surrounded by other cars.

Why is this significant? Because it adds perspective for people who haven’t had the chance to see one in real life. Real traffic shots can be very revealing, helping us gauge how well the vehicle fits in visually with other, mostly regular automobiles.

Style overload

It’s safe to say that the AMG GT 4-door has zero trouble standing out in a crowd of taxis, hatchbacks, small MPVs and other vehicles that most people can actually afford. This particular one was spotted recently by Damors in Berlin, and we’ll let you draw your own conclusions as to how much road presence it has and how much attention it commands.

As for which version this is, the missing “S” symbol points to this being the regular 63 4MATIC model, which is powered by a 4.0-liter biturbo V8 engine, producing 585 PS (576 HP) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque. Performance-wise, it can get from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.4 seconds, before maxing out at 192 mph (310 km/h).

Whether this one is also equipped with active engine mounts is unknown, since they’re an optional extra. What it does have is AMG Cylinder Management, which deactivates a bank of cylinders under partial-load, as well as when the driver opts to select Comfort mode.

    I do like that front end, but the butt is fugly!! Just like most MB rear ends. EWWWWWWWWWWWW

    • TheAmerican

      Yep. They can’t design a good looking rear end.

      • lagunas3ca

        …or wheels.

        • Lloyd Anthony D Peters

          Gonna have to disagree on the wheel front. We don’t get the delicious monoblock style wheels here because we aren’t getting the 43. I REALLY want a set of these.

    Andre the Giant stood out from the crowds, though you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who thought of him as a “looker.” This car is hideous.

  • An Existing Person

    Pictures don’t do this car justice at all. In person it’s very imposing and the lines flow well, although I’m still not sure how I feel about the rear tailights.

    • Astonman

      I agree. And the interior is beautiful and if it drives anything like the AMG-GTS then it will do very well.

  • MIL1234

    i don’t like Mercedes latest suppository design language
    the first gen of CLS is the only one i’d buy with that shape

  • S3XY

    Ya, a hot mess. Not a clean design. That rear is funky ugly. Also, nice F-Type tail lights

    • Matt

      Oh I suppose the Model X is beautiful then?

  • Knarck

    Hated this car until I saw it in person. An absolute stunner

    • Dennis James

      From the pictures it looks like an ugly Chinese Panamera copycat, I guess I’ll have to see it in person to change my opinion.

    • SteersUright

      Hmm, interesting. I’ll have to wait and see then. From the pics its awful.

  • europeon

    So stealing pictures from Autogespot is OK?

  • Rani

    Definitely one of those cars that look better in person. Shame really because I do like it more than the Panamera.

    Front 3/4 view is its best shot imo.

  • B.Stokes

    I know it’s fast. But it does not look good. C-Pilar proportions/design just isn’t right

  • SteersUright

    The design it very dramatic, but it is not very beautiful. In fact, some aspects, like the stupidly high window sills are downright ugly.

  • no25

    It looks like a potato. I would not say “easily one of the hottest”

  • AntBee

    My love runs deeply for this car! This is my first time hearing of it, and seeing it, so it is a beautiful surprise to me.
    I love that big a** grille, and that nicely sculpted rear. It reminds me of the S-Class Coupé in the rear.

  • Blade t

    Looks great ,and the interior looks just as good ..

  • Mike Gonzalez

    This car makes the new Panamera look basic

    • donald seymour

      Saw it in the flesh and it was literately like Mercedes went crazy. They’re MAD I TELL YOU! I’m like what did Porsche ever do to you? What’s the deal? It’s like they’re really trying to kill Porsche. This may sounds very cliche, but it looks like it was milled out of a solid billet of steel. No, joke. It is one of the most imposing vehicles I’ve seen.
