Mercedes ML63 AMG 10th Anniversary, 2009

The exclusive Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG 10th Anniversary is the 375-kW/510-hp top M-Class model fascinating with its striking appearance and extraordinary standard features. With the ML63 AMG 10th Anniversary, Mercedes AMG is celebrating ten years of high-performance SUVs. The Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG with a 255-kW/347-hp AMG 5.5-l V8 engine, launched in 1999, is considered the trendsetter and founder of an entire vehicle segment.

The Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG 10th Anniversary jubilee model was developed in the AMG Performance Studio and showcases AMG's expertise in catering to the wishes of individual customers. The experts at the AMG Performance Studio were also responsible for developing the new Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series, as well as Official F1™ Safety Car and Official F1 Medical Car.

The newly designed front end dominates the extraordinary appearance of the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG 10th Anniversary: the bonnet with power domes catches the eye, as does the radiator grille with fins painted Himalaya grey. A matching Himalaya grey underseal and fog lamp fittings form a delightful contrast to the exterior paintwork in metallic obsidian black, metallic iridium silver and calcite white. Shaded Bi-Xenon headlights add the finishing touch to the front view.

From the side, the exclusive 21" AMG light alloy wheels with a five-spoke design commands attention: the combination of Himalaya grey paintwork and the high-sheen surface creates a lasting impression. The 10 x 21" AMG light alloy wheels are fitted all round with size 295/35 R 21 wide-base tyres. On the rear end of the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG 10th Anniversary, the underseal in Himalaya grey mirrors the design of the front end.

Exquisite two-tone nappa leather upholstery in the interior
The AMG sports seats can be adjusted electronically, and feature a multi-contour function and seat heating. The AMG sports steering wheel is also two-tone, designed to match the interior colour scheme. Perforated leather covering the grip area ensures optimum handling, and the AMG switch paddles enable manual gear changing. The exclusive tone is emphasised not just by the upper part of the dashboard clad in design leather and the black roof lining, but also the charcoal poplar wood trim.

Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG: Worldwide trendsetter and first ever high-performance SUV

With the new ML63 AMG 10th Anniversary, Mercedes AMG GmbH is celebrating ten years of AMG high-performance SUVs. The ML55 AMG, the high-performing top model from the popular first generation of M-Class vehicles, was launched in September 1999 at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt on Main. As the founder of the new "high-performance SUV" segment, the ML55 AMG quickly became a best seller in the AMG range of models. With a maximum output of 255 kW/347 hp, an engine displacement of 5.5 litres and eight cylinders, the ML55 AMG offered a level of driving performance previously unthinkable in this segment: it could accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.8 seconds, and had a top speed of 235 km/h.
