Presented last year ahead of the New York Auto Show premiere, the facelifted Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe has been tuned by Lorinser, who revised its looks and increased its power as well.
We will start with the latter part, which is also the most impressive, as the power module unleashes 582 HP (591 PS / 434 kW) and 609 lb-ft (826 Nm) of torque. Priced at €2,499 ($2,859) in Germany, it can also be fitted to the regular AMG GLC 63 and 63 S.
The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, which powers the entire AMG GLC 63 range, pumps out 503 HP (510 PS / 375 kW) and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) in the S variant of the premium compact crossover. So, while the tuner did not disclose performance numbers, we’re likely looking at noticeable gains compared to the stock GLC 63 S Coupe, which does the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.8 seconds and has a 174 mph (280 km/h) top speed.
Evoking the spirit of the Mercedes W140, W124 and 190, the LM2R alloy wheels, which were introduced earlier this year, are available for the SUV and Coupe versions of the GLC. On the car pictured here, they measure 9×21 inches at the front and 10.5×21 inches at the rear and can be ordered in hypersilver or black, with a starting price of €2,900 ($3,312) per set. Customers can further change the looks of their rides by going for the carbon side mirror caps, which will set them back another €799 ($914).
