Wild-Speed is back with another set of renderings following the BMW F11M M5 Touring released on our front page yesterday. Together with BenzBoost, he released his take on the new 2012 Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG.
The brand new power SUV is coming and it will have the M157 Twin-Turbo direct injected V8 from the E63 AMG. This means 518 horsepower in standard trim 550 horsepower with the optional performance package. Curb weight should be just under 5,000 pounds.
Release is expected at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
even in AMG that’s one ugly car, from behind…. Current ML is qay better looking
Do you think the V8 would fit in my GLK? I’d rather have that as an AMG than this pig.
hoping to get this car. coz it’s cool
Needs more spice. I’ve been waiting to buy one of these (550 actually), but seems a bit vanilla. Needs a little flair to the wheel arches, full LED tail lights like on the E-class, dual power bulges on the hood (like GL550). Panoramic sunroof a bit dissapointing (only front opens, and is more like 2 sunroofs rather than 1 large one). Steering wheel lower plastic trim feels cheap, lacks birdseye lookaround cameras, no remote start (yet), no 3rd row seat option. Interior lighting still incadescent..should be LED. I also miss the lower body side trim with the little chrome strip as was on the last model. That further accentuates the intentional optical illusion that makes the side profile appear it is wedge shaped (higher in rear, lower in front).
