See how this 730-strong Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S rides like a hypercar

The guys from the tuning studio Performmaster published a video in which a modified version of the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S shows their newly acquired features.

Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S is a very fast car – under the hood of this stylish 4-door coupe is a 4.0-liter V8 engine with dual turbocharging, whose power is 630 hp. This is enough to accelerate to a speed of 100 km / h in 3.1 seconds – this is the official data of Mercedes.

This particular AMG GT 63 S was upgraded by German tuning company Performmaster, and although we don’t know all the specific changes, the video at the top of this article tells us that the engine power is now at least 730 hp.

This is obviously a rather sharp jump up, and yes, this leads to a reduction in the acceleration time. However, in reality it is quite a bit – acceleration to the first 100 kmh now takes 3.0 seconds, which is one tenth of a second better than the standard version of the car.

This is not to say that this is not impressive, for all cars, not to mention a car with four doors, five seats and a luggage compartment, this is a very good result. It is with such dynamic characteristics that some supercars and hypercars represent us. Acceleration to a speed of 200 km / h takes only 9.9 seconds.

Back in December last year, we observed how the standard version of the German sports coupe GT 63 S does the same run in 11.24 seconds, and although there are some arguments in favor of differences in traction and atmospheric conditions, this advantage will not be nearly 1, 5 seconds. If these two runs went side by side, this modified 63 S from the Performmaster studio would be ahead of the standard car.

Unfortunately, the video ends when the car accelerates to 200 km / h, but this is definitely not the limit.
