A best-seller unveils its updated exterior: the ML 63 AMG, featuring a powerful 375 kW (510 hp) AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine, takes on a more attractive appearance thanks to some subtle but effective changes.

From the front, the eye is immediately drawn to the new bonnet with power domes, and the darkened bi-xenon headlamps with active light function. The rear, meanwhile, also contributes appropriately to the new look: the performance SUV now features darkened tail lamps incorporating a clear-lens design and LED technology. The subtle changes to the exterior coordinate perfectly with the high-gloss, chromed front and rear underguard, and afford the ML 63 AMG an even more powerful and distinctive appearance.

Still boasting a power output of 375 kW (510 hp) at 6800/rpm as well as 630 Nm of torque, the ML 63 AMG is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.0 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited). At the renowned International Engine of the Year Awards in 2009, the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine took the top places in both the "Best Performance Engine" and "Above 4 litres" categories.

As before, power transfer is taken care of via the AMG SPEEDSHIFT 7G-TRONIC automatic transmission with three drive modes. The permanent all-wheel drive is decidedly sporty: the power is split asymmetrically 40:60 between the front and rear wheels to provide optimum agility. The AMG sports suspension, based on the AIRMATIC package with air suspension, adaptive damping system ADS and automatic level control all-round, provides dynamic performance combined with the hallmark Mercedes long-distance comfort. The generously dimensioned AMG high-performance braking system, which features internally ventilated and perforated brake discs all-round, ensures short braking distances and optimum resistance to fading.

The ML 63 AMG comes with 5-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels, which are painted titanium grey with a high-sheen finish and fitted with 295/40 R 20 tyres on the front and rear. As an optional extra, titanium-grey-painted, high-sheen twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels fitted with 295/35 R 21 tyres are also available.

High-quality interior with nappa leather upholstery

As usual, the interior of the ML 63 AMG is both functional and high-quality: electrically adjustable AMG sports seats finished in nappa leather upholstery, with Alcantara inserts in the shoulder areas and multicontour function and heating, are complemented by the AMG sports steering wheel with AMG aluminium shift paddles and perforated leather on the specially-shaped grip area. A nappa leather-trimmed dashboard is also available as an optional extra.

The updated ML 63 AMG is available to order with immediate effect and will be delivered to customers from July 2010. It carries a price tag of 105,077 euros (incl. 19% VAT).

For a Mercedes vehicle, V8 engine is quite good enough for it. As for the looks of the car, well the design is not really impressive at all.

This one is absolutely looks very stunning on its aesthetic design, and I’m glad that it had an impressive engine specification which gives me the idea that it is so fun to drive.

I’m impressed with its decency! Well, I do really love cars, which are so practical to use on everyday transportation and a truly can captivate lots of attention, and this Mercedes ML63 is absolutely like that.

Mercedes Ml63 AMG is looks so cute on its platform, and it is very striking on its decent and hygienic body paint, but I’m quite curious on what will be the interior of this one will look like.

I’m impressed with the engine that they used for this, for a Mercedes car V8 engine is quite good enough for it. As for the looks of the car, well the design is not really impressive at all.

Mercedes is starting to make an ridiculous design and ML63 is the proof! This is actually the contrary of their coupe designs. I can’t see sporty, athletic and luxurious design on this model but an ugly face!

stunningly beautiful. it looks more sporty and but i see some similarities between VW suv’s and ML63.

What are you saying? Mercedes will make a hideous design?I don’t think so..

The car is called the ML63. The "M" in "ML" designates the body style. 63 designates the engine size. AMG is performance package.

From the rear it looks hideous. Bad Design.

In Europe the cars prices if you convert their currency to $$ it will be more than the price in the US, in US the ML63 costs around $97k
