At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Mercedes unveiled a high-performance plug-in powertrain that was reportedly slated to appear in a forthcoming model, and four years later, the German automaker has finally pulled the cover off of its first-ever performance-focused hybrid.. Say hello to the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE.

Kicked along by the most powerful engine ever to leave the firm’s Affalterbach factory, the GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE features a 4.0-liter V8 bi-turbo engine coupled with a 150kW electric motor and battery on the rear axle that together put down 831hp and a whopping 1,033ft-lbs of torque — allowing the hybrid AMG to clock 0-60mph runs in just 2.9-seconds and a top speed of over 196mph. Representing Mercedes-AMG’s latest flagship offering, the GT 63 S E PERFORMANCE has received a major visual update and facelift, along with a track-focused suite of componentry that includes AMG RIDE CONTROL+ suspension with a new damping system, an electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential, AMG ceramic high-performance composite brake system, and seven different drive modes including a RACE mode and a customizable program. To bring the car to fruition, AMG called on the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team to utilize the race program’s electric powertrain technology, resulting in the new model’s incredible performance capabilities.
