Finished in diamond white, this machine instantly commands attention. Sat on those enormous AMG multi spoke alloy wheels, this GL63 looks every part the luxury SUV that it’s meant to be. Whilst the GL Class is a formidable rival to the Range Rover in its natural guise, the example that we have available currently is the AMG variant. This means that the Mercedes boffins in Germany have been over this machine with a fine tooth comb to refine and improve on what was an already potent recipe.
Under the bonnet, you’ll find a 5.5-Litre petrol engine which is, quite frankly, capable of some truly incredible figures.
