New spy photo reveal that the performance-driven 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG is in its testing phase. Making it different from previously spied models, this automobile boasts of cross-drilled brake discs behind larger sports wheels and, at its back, dual exhaust tips. Although the wheelbase of the latest ML-Class looks untouched from the present model, lesser overhangs front and back point to a fairly more compact body in contrast to the 2009 model.
Expected to draw power from the German automobile’s latest 5.5 litre twin-turbo V8 engine, the top of the line ML-Class SUV is likely to preserve AMG’s 63 badging. Accentuating direct-injection, the latest smaller-capacity twin-turbo-charged V8 delivers 400kW and 800Nm of torque, exceeding the naturally-aspirated 6.2 litre engine’s 390kW and 630Nm of torque. Presently powering the latest S63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz stated that the latest engine exhibits a 25 percent improvement of fuel consumption, utilizing only 10.5l/100km. This model’s 0-100km/h sprint is covered in 4.5 seconds, which is 100 hundredth of a second quicker than the present model.
