However, they did not provide any new details about the four-door coupe nor did they show any photo of its interior. AMG, the automaker's high-performance division, also upgraded the transmission and suspension.

"The new AMG G 63 brings driving performance to the segment of unadulterated off-road vehicles in unexpected form".

"It was important for us to tie in with the original character on account of the cult status the G63 enjoys with our customers and fans. The vehicle has nevertheless reached a completely new dimension in terms of technology with the 4.0-litre V8 Bi-Turbo engine as well as in combination with the off-road characteristics, the agility and the vehicle dynamics achieved", explains Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

The AMG G63 is part of a growing number of high-performance SUVs that include the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Tesla Model X P100D.

Appearance wise, there isn't much to distinguish the AMG from the standard G-Class.

Merc C-Class updated inside and out - full details

Semi-autonomous tech moves over from the S-Class.

Standard 2019 G63 models will reach a limited top speed of 137 miles per hour. While the G63 is limited to 137 miles per hour, those with the need for speed and the cash to make it happen can bump that limiter up to 149 miles per hour by opting for the AMG Driver's package.

Mercedes-Benz South Africa can't yet confirm engine upgrades, but we suspect the C300 will be boosted from 180kW to 190 as per worldwide specification while torque stays the same at 370Nm. The front axle has an independent, double wishbone suspension, while a rigid axle with a five-link suspension is used at the rear. Adaptive adjustable damping is standard equipment and controls each wheel independently to improve ride quality. Merc says its Ultra Range high beams produce the maximum amount of light allowed legally, but can only be used when no other road users are detected, the steering wheel is straight, and the speed is above 40km/h.

The new Maybach S-Class features a similar grille to the one found on the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 concept from 2016.

Mercedes-Benz sent out a series of teaser photos of the new four-door Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe undergoing wind tunnel tests ahead of its world debut in Geneva next month. Pricing will be announced closer to launch at the end of 2018.
