Lorinser presents 700 HP and visual package for Mercedes-AMG G63

The Mercedes-AMG G63 is a desirable car with rough edges and is up for pretty much any challenge on the road. Its 585 HP (430 kW) biturbo V8 has a brutish nature that leaves even sportscar drivers in awed astonishment. The power package from Sportservice Lorinser takes the acceleration of the 2.5 t car to a magical level. The German Mercedes specialist gets an impressive 700 HP (515 kW) from the 4-liter engine – around 20 percent extra – and a maximum torque of 1,000 Nm. This forces even the legendary G65 from the predecessor series to tip its hat respectfully. The G63 optimized by Lorinser blasts from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.3 seconds. That is on a level with many seasoned sports cars and takes another two tenths from the production model. The suspension, which has been revised together with the launch of the new model in 2018, additionally allows significantly higher cornering speeds than the first generation. The boxy car receives an extra boost from the Lorinser lowering kit, which offers more driving fun for 790 euros plus VAT.

 

The Mountain – as a car

 

A car that goes on the road as tough as the G63 tuned by Lorinser also wants to show off its muscles. Sportservice Lorinser therefore came up with an appropriate "body workout". The most striking element is the three-part front bumper add-on (2940 euros plus VAT), which perfectly highlights the angular design of the car body. The mighty hood add-on also fits the concept perfectly and makes the G63 even more dominant. Even the Terminator might approve of this vehicle. The steep rear looks as daunting as the north face of the Eiger mountain, whereby the attractive spare wheel cover (910 euros plus VAT) from Lorinser offers the only protrusion. Like a summit cross, all this is dominated by a dynamic Lorinser roof wing (970 euros plus VAT) which signals to the traffic behind that this off-roader does not have many opponents on the road, either.

 

Valve-controlled exhaust and 23" wheels

 

Instead of an alphorn, this mountain of a car is accompanied by the sound of a sonorous valve-controlled exhaust with enormous side pipes (4200 euros plus VAT). They play the fanfare to the enormous 11x23" alloy wheels, which develop an impressive presence even on this giant of a car. At the same time, the design of the Lorinser type RS10 forged wheels (1925 euros plus VAT per rim) appears sporty and light. This highlights the dynamic qualities of the speedy G63 cube, which is celebrated as a great success by many car enthusiasts.
