The new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG with V8
Stuttgart -The new Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG
stands for efficiency and performance, exclusivity and a superlative
driving experience. Running on 11.8 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres (NEDC
combined, 276 g CO2/km), the high-performance SUV undercuts its
predecessor by 28 percent.
The basis for low fuel consumption and
top-class performance is provided by the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine
with a maximum power output of 386 kW (525 hp) and a peak torque of 700
newton metres, representing an increase of 11 kW (15 hp) and 70 newton
metres. The optionally available AMG Performance package boosts the V8
engine's power output to 410 kW (557 hp) and its maximum torque to 760
newton metres. The AMG RIDE CONTROL sports suspension with newly
developed ACTIVE CURVE SYSTEM for active roll stabilisation, the AMG-specific
design and the broad scope of standard equipment and appointments make
for a highly attractive overall package.
The new ML 63 AMG comes with an exciting
technology package: the AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine features
spray-guided direct petrol injection with piezo injectors, ECO
start/stop system, an all-aluminium crankcase, four valves per cylinder
with camshaft adjustment, air-water intercooling and alternator
management. With a displacement of 5461 cc, the eight-cylinder engine
generates a maximum power output of 386 kW (525 hp) and 700 newton
metres of torque.
In conjunction with the AMG Performance package these
values rise to 410 kW (557 hp) and 760 newton metres. This difference in
power and torque results from an increase in the maximum charge pressure
from 1.0 to 1.3 bar.
Both variants of the ML 63 AMG enable
sports-car performance: acceleration from zero to 100 km/h takes 4.8
seconds and 4.7 seconds respectively, while the top speed stands at 250
km/h (electronically limited). With or without AMG Performance package,
the NEDC fuel consumption figure of 11.8 litres per 100 kilometres (276
g CO2/km) remains the same.
