The 4.0-liter biturbo V8 from the AMG GT is finding its way into more and more AMG models, and the latest duo from Affalterbach receive it is the GLC63 AMG SUV and GLC63 AMG Coupe, which Mercedes-Benz detailed ahead of the cars' debut at the New York auto show. That's right: AMG models are being created faster than Stuttgart can unveil them at separate auto shows, and we have the compact design of this biturbo 4.0-liter V8 to thank for its ability to fit under the hoods of so many Mercedes models.
In fact, there's actually a third model that'll break cover in New York, an offshoot of the GLC63 AMG Coupe that will eclipse the other two models when it comes to power stats.
In the GLC63 AMG SUV and GLC63 Coupe, this V8 will churn out 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, while the GLC63 S Coupe — the third model — will dial up the power to 503 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque for those buyers who are in an extra hurry. The "weaker" models will be able to make sprints from 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds — figures reserved for supercars until relatively recently — while the GLC63 S Coupe will be able to hit that mark a bit quicker with a 3.7-second sprint time. (Like we said: Some buyers are in a bigger hurry than others, so that's the model they'll go for.)
