Christened Project Inferno, this super-SUV benefits from a number of engine upgrades such as custom turbochargers, ECU remap and a new exhaust system.
The result is a massive 806 PS (795 hp / 593 kW) and 1,181 Nm (871 lb-ft) of torque. From naught to 100 km/h (0-62 mph), this GLE 63 S Coupe needs only 3.25 seconds, and it hits a top speed of 336 km/h (209 mph).
That’s approximately 1 second faster than the stock GLE 63S Coupe, which also has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph), or 280 km/h (174 mph) with the optional AMG Driver’s Package. The standard bi-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine produces 585 PS (576 hp / 430 kW) and 760 Nm (561 lb-ft) of torque, channeled to both axles through a 7-speed automatic gearbox tuned by AMG.
This Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe has been fitted with a TopCar body kit as well as 23-inch rims from Vossen, shod in 295/35 front and 335/30 rear tires, and a new suspension by Brabus.
While tuners continue to work their magic on the current Mercedes GLE, the automaker is developing an entirely new generation. It should launch sometime next year with the usual petrol and diesel engines, while the AMG GLE 53 Coupe will be powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8.
