The new Mercedes AMG GT63 has more power and a lot more carbon fiber

The second-gen Mercedes AMG GT63 is fast enough to be called a supercar and practical enough to be called a Gran Turismo.

This is the new Mercedes AMG GT63 and despite its familiar face, it’s been built from scratch and is completely new.

Supercar Blondie’s Sergi Galiano had the chance to experience it in the metal in California.

This is the second generation AMG GT, the great-grandson of the Mercedes SLS AMG and the child of the first generation AMG GT.

Design-wise, it follows exactly the same language as its predecessor, but Mercedes has made a few changes.

The new grille is bigger, the headlights are new, and the carbon fiber front splitter is also new.

On the side, it has new 21-inch wheels with carbon-ceramic brakes, and at the back, you’ve got a new carbon fiber splitter and new tailpipes.

The new carbon fiber spoiler is bigger than ever before, as is the space in the trunk.

In fact, this car has the largest trunk of any sports car of its kind.

There’s enough space for a human being in there, and we know that because Sergi personally tested this.

The interior was revamped as well.

It has plush leather upholstery for the seats and the dashboard, and a new floating touchscreen display.

You’ve got two gauges, one on either side of the steering wheel, to adjust the driving mode with the right one, and the suspension setting and exhaust valves with the one on the left-hand side.

The engine is a 4.0-liter biturbo V8, delivering 577 horsepower.

A slightly less powerful model is also available, rated at 469 horsepower.

Later this year, Mercedes will also launch a hybrid variant.

Pricing for the Mercedes AMG GT63 will be revealed at a later date, but expect a price to be between $170,000 and $190,000 for the base model.
