789bhp Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S by G-Power revealed 

As if a standard 576bhp GLE 63 S wasn’t enough, this one has almost 800bhp...

Though a near-2.3 tonne SUV isn’t particularly evo, we can’t deny that the GLE 63 offers some of the best refinement and mile-munching ability you’ll find on the road. Despite its mass, it boasts performance figures that match those of much lighter machines, thanks largely to its 577bhp power figure. More horses are the very last thing we’d ask for in such a car, but of course, G-Power feels otherwise…

The German tuner is no stranger to Affalterbach’s offerings, taking both the AMG GT R and SL 63 to almost 800bhp previously. Under the bonnet of the GLE is AMG’s 5.5-litre M157 twin-turbocharged V8, producing 577bhp and 560lb ft of torque in stock form. 0-62mph is quoted at a respectable 4.2secs and top speed at 155mph, or 174mph if you option the delimiter.

> Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe review - has the BMW X6 M met its match?

789bhp and a whopping 811lb ft of torque are the headline figures, a substantial increase of 212bhp and 250lb ft over the factory settings thanks to a handful of modifications. Tweaked turbochargers with larger turbine and compressor wheels and CNC-optimised housings and turbine blades help up the boost, a stainless steel, flow-optimised exhaust system lets the 8-cylinder breathe and the brand’s V3 ECU software allows everything to work in unison. Post-modification performance figures haven’t been provided, but it’s safe to say it’ll cover the 0-62mph sprint in under 4secs and will go onto a top speed of around 200mph. 

The GLE also receives new 23” forged aluminium wheels wrapped in 315 section tyres, a carbon fibre rear wing, carbon ceramic brakes with branded callipers and G-Power badges throughout. 

Pricing hasn’t been provided, but a standard car will set you back from just under £100,000.
