This New Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance is the Quickest AMG To Date, Claims Sub-3-Second 0-97km/h Time

The 2025 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance is available with bronze six-piston fixed callipers at the front and single-piston floating callipers at the rear. These cling onto 16.5-inch carbon-ceramic brake discs at the front and 15.0-inch brake discs at the rear.

The 2025 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance is the quickest accelerating production vehicle the company has ever built. It is claimed to be 0.3 seconds quicker than the standard GT 63. Its hybrid powertrain setup, consisting of a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 (making 595bhp alone) and an electric motor, produces the combined 794bhp and 1,420Nm, resulting in a 0 to 97km/h sprint time of 2.7 seconds. While this makes it the quickest 'series production' AMG, the 2025 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance falls only 0.4 seconds short of the 2025 Porsche Taycan Turbo S's 0 to 97km/h time. The latter is an all-electric vehicle with a 98.6kWh battery pack and two motors.

The hybrid version of the Porsche 911 is confirmed to make its global debut later this year. Codenamed the 992.2, the upcoming Porsche 911 Hybrid sports car will get a retuned twin-turbo six-cylinder engine with an electric motor housed within the front axle. 

2025 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance: Battery, Charging

Mercedes-AMG has equipped the 2025 GT 63 SE Performance with a 6.1kWh battery pack mounted above the rear axle. This battery has a direct cooling system,w which sends a unique liquid around all 560 cells to help maintain an optimal temperature and improve battery performance. While the range figure and charging time are yet to be revealed, charging takes place through either a 3.7kW onboard AC charger or four-stage regenerative braking, including a one-pedal mode similar to an electric vehicle. The top speed of the vehicle is marked at 320km/h.

2025 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance: Suspension, Brakes

The 2025 Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE Performance comes standard with AMG's Active Ride Control suspension with roll stabilisation and rear-axle steering. Rather than conventional anti-roll bars, the active ride control utilises active hydraulics, which works together with adaptive shock absorbers, each with two hydraulic connections. This system, according to Mercedes-AMG, allows for a 'very wide roll spring rate' while reducing rolling movements. 

Also standard is a carbon ceramic composite brake system. This comprises bronze six-piston fixed callipers with 16.5-inch discs at the front and single-piston floating callipers with 15.0-inch discs at the rear.

The new GT 63 SE Performance appears similar to the standard GT 63. However, the two-door E Performance coupe features twin trapezoidal tailpipes, E Performance badges on the front fenders, a red GT 63 S badge on the trunk lid, and a charging port. Aero-optimised, 10-spoke, 20-inch wheels finished in Tantalum Grey are standard, while the optional extras are 20- and 21-inch units in different designs and finishes. There are eight drive modes on offer – Electric, Battery Hold, Comfort, Slippery, Sport, Sport+, Race, and Individual.

The 2025 GT 63 S E Performance will arrive at US dealerships in late 2024, and Mercedes-Benz has yet to disclose the price of the model. As far as India is concerned, there is no word on its launch here.
