Best known for providing luxury refinement backed by German sensibility, every so often Mercedes-Benz gives us a glimpse of something we’re rarely privileged to see — its fun side. Typically, this comes to fruition in the form of a ludicrous project from the minds at AMG, its high-performance tuning subdivision. New for 2021, the GLE 63 S Coupe is an exemplary case of some good ol’ German giddyup.

Sporting an impressive 603HP 4.0L bi-turbo V8, the GLE 63 S Coupe reaffirms something that most of us know: leather upholstery and wooden trim deserve their due diligence, but ultimately, it’s the performance that’s paramount. By fitting the GLE with a 48V electrical system and an EQ Boost starter generator, Mercedes taps into an immediate stash of horsepower and torque, all the while delivering some impressively-low energy consumption. In order to keep things rubber side down, Mercedes also fitted the GLE with ACTIVE RIDE CONTROL, a form of roll stabilization that employs two independently-operating electromechanical actuators. Inside, the GLE features the usual German luxury treatment along with some AMG-exclusive badging and Mercedes’s most powerful touchscreen interface to date. The GLE 63 S Coupe will go on sale in late 2020 for $116,000 and up.

Purchase: $116,000+
