More performance numbers for the M157 based 2013 G63 AMG - MotorTrend gets 0-60 in 5 seconds flat and the 1/4 mile in firstname.lastname@example.org
Ah the G63 AMG. The absolute absurdity of the vehicle is hard to deny and hard not to love. For whatever reason Mercedes-Benz decided to stick a twin turbo AMG M157 5.5 liter V8 under the hood and we love them for it as what other company would? The new AMG twin turbo motor definitely moves the 5876 pound truck with the aerodynamic refinement of a brick quickly. How does 0-60 in 5 seconds flat sound and the 1/4 mile in 13.4 seconds at 105.2 miles per hour?
Car and Driver got very similar numbers in their test with 0-60 also in 5.0 seconds flat and the 1/4 mile in 13.5 @ 106 miles per hour. So, basically the same thing and this test is a confirmation of those numbers.
The truck hauls no question about it just do not expect the ancient design to handle as its .56g skidpad number shows. This is a brick with turbos. And that is just so damn cool.
