Mercedes Benz GL63 AMG in a class of its own

Mercedes Benz announced the first official AMG variant of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class, which will be known as the GL63 AMG.

The GL63 AMG will compete with the BMW X5M, Range Rover Supercharged and the Toyota Land Cruiser.

Its distinctive lines and simulated underride guard add a special touch to the GL. Its numerous chrome highlights radiate elegance, from the roof rails to the chrome-effect fog lamp surrounds.

The radiator grille and bumpers, together with the twin-pipe exhaust system integrated in the rear bumper and light-alloy wheels, underscore the GL’s stunning visual impact. Other visual highlights include its daytime driving lamps and LED tail lights.

In the generously sized interior of the GL-Class everything is designed to offer passengers the highest degree of comfort and make every journey as pleasant as possible.

A highlight in the truest sense of the word is the standard ambient lighting. Luminous surfaces on the dashboard and in the door linings, lit by LEDs, provide a pleasant lighting ambience when driving at night, generating a unique climate. The lighting can remain on during the drive – without interfering with the driver’s vision.

In addition to the new seats and tube design instrument cluster with 3D scales, the wood trim elements and leather upholstery are real eye-catchers. They underline the design premise of the GL: to offer something special across the board.
