Mercedes-Benz Malaysia has flexed yet another fibre of its high-performance SUV muscle with the introduction of the new GLC 63 S 4MATIC alongside the GLC 63 S Coupe 4MATIC and the G63 wagon at the Sepang International Circuit.
Under its bulging hood rests a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 engine paired to an AMG Speedshift MCT 9-speed transmission, with output rated at 510 hp and 700 Nm of torque. 0 to 100 km/h is destroyed in just 3.8 seconds while top speed is capped at 270 km/h, if you have the guts.
