A Tour Inside the Mercedes-AMG Performance Center in China

Giancarlo Perlas September 17, 2014

A visit to a Mercedes-AMG Performance Center is considered to be a field day for every car enthusiast, automotive journalist, and car blogger. This is exactly what one writer in China Car News had recently.

One of the Mercedes-AMG Performance Centers in China is located in Shanghai near the People’s Park. The establishment also doubles as a dealership specializing in the sale of AMG variants. During the blogger’s visit to the area, he was able to witness the different cars offered by the center, which he shared through the China-based car news website.

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507

The first to attract his attention was the shiny black Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507. Among the things offered by this special edition of the C63 AMG are short suspension, titanium five twin-spoke wheels, and signature AMG embroidered leather at the interior. The icing on this one can be found under the hood. Its 6.2-liter V8 engine pops out 507 hp and 610 Nm of torque. It has a top speed of 280 km/h, and its zero to 100 km/h sprint can be accomplished in only 4.2 seconds. The price tag of this one is around 1.15 million yuan or roughly $187,000.

Next to the menu is the Coupe variant of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507. Basically, it mirrors the same body package and engine specs present in its sedan version. This one costs 1.2 million yuan or around $195,000. The source noted that it is hard to sell coupes in China because buyers prefer the sedan for its higher passenger capacity.

Mercedes-Benz S63 L AMG 4MATIC

The Mercedes-Benz S63 L AMG 4MATIC was only launched in China recently. What makes this one stand out from its peers is its 5.4-liter biturbo engine capable of producing a whopping 577 hp and 900 Nm of torque. Its top speed can go up to 300 km/h, and its run from a standstill to 100 km/h is only 4.5 seconds. The starting price of this unit is at 2.5 million yuan or $407,000.

Last but not least is the classic and iconic incarnation of the G-Class in its AMG form. According to the report, this is among the best-sellers in the area. The 537 hp and 760 Nm torque power of the vehicle comes from its 5.5-liter turbocharged V8 engine. Then, its top speed is at 210 km/h with a sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds.
