2019 Mercedes-AMG GT63 S 4-Door pricing and specs

By Dylan Campbell, 02 Feb 2019 News

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT63 S 4-Door pricing and specs

Price, options and specification revealed as AMG's heavy hitter heads Down Under

The thunderous 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT63 S will slot between E63 S and S63  for price, with the first cars hitting Australian roads from June.

At $349,900 the GT63 S 4-Door is more than $100,000 costlier than the slower (but still outrageously fast) $239,611 E63 S; and about $25,000 less than the luxurious, larger rear-drive S63 L.

Read our international AMG GT63 S review!

With a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 producing an innards-compressing 470kW and 900Nm, the all-wheel drive GT63 S is capable of 0-100km/h in just 3.2 seconds – super impressive for a car that weighs 2045kg.

The first GT63 S in Australia was revealed in pit-lane at Mount Panorama yesterday.

The GT63 S is loaded to the hilt with standard equipment such as air suspension, rear-wheel steering, 21-inch wheels, carbon-fibre roof and myriad other goodies.

Early deliveries of the GT63 S will also be available with a special Edition 1 treatment, including rear wing, stripes and unique colour/trim combinations.

The lesser-spec, lower power GT63 non-S will not be offered in Australia.

AMG GT43 to arrive Q2 2019

Meanwhile the German powerhouse has released pricing for its more junior 2019 Mercedes-AMG GT53. At $249,900 the GT53 is $100,000 cheaper than the V8 model, but still a rapid beast. With a mild hybrid 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six producing 320kW and 520Nm, the all-wheel drive GT53 can hit 100km/h in 4.5 seconds.

2019 Mercedes-AMG GT53 4-Door price – $249,900
