After being launched in the United States earlier this year, the 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG is once again placed into the spotlights, this time with the automaker announcing its official price for the UK, which has been set at GBP82,995. The new generation of the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG is 40 percent more fuel efficient and 30 percent less polluting than the model it replaced, which was being powered by a 6.2 liter V8 unit.
The 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG is equipped with the new 5.5 liter biturbo V8 engine, made by AMG, which is producing a total output of 518 horsepower, with a peak torque of 699 Nm (516 lb-ft), but for a little extra, future owners of the SUV will be able to order the model with the AMG Performance Package, which is boosting the HP figure to 550 and the Nm go up to 758 (560 lb-ft). The new ML63 AMG can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.6 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). With the AMG Performance Package, the acceleration is done in 0.1 seconds faster and the top speed goes up to 174 mph (280 km/h).
