Motor1 kindly shared photos from the tests of the updated Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 crossover. The prototype received a fairly small amount of camouflage. Most likely, the official presentation of the car is coming soon.

Mercedes-AMG introduced the high-performance crossover GLE 63 / GLE 63 S back in November 2019 at the Los Angeles Auto Show, but soon we will see the same car, only with a coupe-shaped body. I must say that the new GLE 63 really look much better than before. Needless to say, the opinion about the exterior is subjective, but the new generation of the coupe-shaped SUV got a more aggressive look and overall began to look better.
The noticed prototype, which apparently already received all (well, or almost all) of the production elements of the exterior, had camouflage only on the front and rear bumpers, as well as on the star nameplates.

 This is usually a sign that the official presentation of the car is just around the corner. Presumably, it will be held at the Geneva Motor Show in early March this year.

Just like in the traditional form of GLE, a more stylish version of the crossover will receive a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine using soft-hybrid technology. The standard AMG 63 will be rated at 563 horsepower and 750 Nm, while the AMG 63 with an index of S will be able to offer 603 hp. (850 Nm). In both cases, the EQ Boost feature will also be available, which can temporarily add 21 hp. and 250 Nm.

 Since the GLE 63 Coupe will be almost identical to the regular version of the crossover, with the exception of the modified body, we expect similar performance indicators. Most likely, acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will take 4.0 seconds, and for version S, this figure will be less by 0.2 s. The maximum speed will be electronically limited at around 250 km / h, but the additional AMG Driver will increase power to 280 km / h.
