Kali Muscle definitely has a lot of love for his Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe. In a recent video, the Youtuber, actor, and bodybuilder showcased a street race between the crossover and the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Jailbreak.
AMG GLE 63 S Tale of the Tape
The AMG GLE 63 S Coupe starts at $117,850 in the US. This five-seater is equipped with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo mild-hybrid V8 engine. The power unit is capable of delivering 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque.
All that power is directed to an all-wheel-drive system and managed via a nine-speed automatic transmission. The crossover measures 115.6 inches and tips the scale at 5,390 lbs. The overall configuration of the vehicle allows it to sprint 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
The version of the auto owned by Kali Muscle is pretty much stock in the engine bay. However, he has managed to cut a little bit of weight from the auto with some carbon inserts. A new set of wheels is also fitted to give the vehicle a better look and more edge on its driving dynamics.
Hellcat Jailbreak Tale of the Tape
The Hellcat Jailbreak starts at $83,425 in the US. It boasts a 6.2-liter supercharged Hemi engine that can produce up to 807 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque.
Unlike its rival, the muscle car has a rear-wheel-drive system and its power is distributed through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The vehicle is only less than an inch longer than the wheelbase of the Merc at 116.2 inches and it weighs around 4,586 lbs. Same as its contender, the Dodge has a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 3.7 seconds.
The version of the Hellcat Jailbreak shown in the video comes with a couple of new parts that also help it shed some weight. This one is around 50 lbs. off from its original weight.

It’s definitely good to see the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe get pitted against the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Jailbreak. The score so far in the video is 2-1 in favor of the high-performance GLE Coupe. It appears that traction and driver response during launch played a major part in the contest. However, it would have been better if the race was conducted on tracks to see the unrestricted performance of the two in a controlled environment.
