Welcome to the hyper SUV.
Mercedes-AMG is no stranger to the world of powerful sport SUVs, and the aftermarket is simply in love with the brand's fast people carriers, so much in fact that they regularly build massively powerful versions of the G Class. With the arrival of the 2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 there's now an even wilder 900-hp version that will melt your tires and hearts. German tuning house Wheelsandmore has given the hi-po SUV 103 more horsepower than a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redye.
The car you see before you boasts a power output of 907 horsepower and a massive 848 lb-ft of torque from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. This power is achieved through the fitment of, amongst others, upgraded turbos, and new software. To remind the reader, the standard Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 comes from the factory with 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. An electric 48-volt EQ Boost starter-generator adds another 21 hp and 184 lb-ft and power is sent to all fours via a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Turning this car into a 900 hp beast takes a set of upgraded turbos, a flap exhaust system, high-performance fuel pumps, and a set of 100 cell sport catalytic converters, as well as some serious software tuning to up the boost and work with the engine timing. The standard car can sprint to sixty in only 3.7 seconds, so this car is sure to beat that by quite some margin.
The stage four kit will set you back a massive $59,219, but the company also offers less intense packages. The stage one kit will hike power up to 630 hp via an ECU upgrade and replacement air filter. The stage two package hikes power to 789 hp, and the stage three kit will deliver 848 hp. Stage three and four cars are able to reach a top speed of 199 mph when the speed limiter is removed. Wheelsandmore also offers an extensive range of wheel options and is currently working on a new exhaust system and air suspension controller. Wheelsandmore has also recognized the fact that owners of these cars like bigger wheels, and are now offering a set of massive 10.5 × 24 inch wheels with 295/30/24 rubber in the front and in 12.5 × 24 inch wheels with 355/25/24 rubber in the rear. These multi-spoke wheels are designed by Vredestein.
