The Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe Night Package has just been made official after the car was initially revealed earlier in the year.
Available across the entire GLE Coupe range, including the GLE450 AMG Sport and GLE63 Coupe, the Night Package is based around the AMG Line version. As a result, it incorporates a selection of black accents with the new front air intake surrounds particularly eye-catching.
Elsewhere, the Night Package includes blacked out wing mirror caps, black side skirts and heavily tinted windows. At the rear, the GLE Coupe Night Package includes black chrome exhaust tips for the GLE63 AMG and GLE450 AMG variants. For other GLE Coupe models, the exhaust pipes are instead finished in chrome. Completing the visual modifications is a blacked out rear bumper and diffuser combination with 22-inch wheels available on AMG models and 21-inch silver wheels on non-AMG GLE versions.
In case you didn’t know, the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe doesn’t make use of AMG’s new 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Instead, it uses the older 5.5-litre twin-turbocharged V8 which has been tweaked and fettled to now deliver a total of 577 hp at 5500 rpm and 560 lb-ft between 1750 and 5250 rpm in GLE 63 S Coupe specification. As a result of this, the GLE63 S Coupe accelerates quickly to 100 km/h in a mere 4.2 seconds.
As for the ‘regular’ GLE63 Coupe, it uses the same 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 and delivers 549 hp at 5750 rpm as well as 516 lb-ft of torque between 1750 and 5500 rpm. Consequently, it reaches 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, just 0.1 slower than the AMG S. Both specifications of the Mercedes-AMG GLE63 Coupe make use of AMG’s seven-speed 7G transmission driving the 4Matic all-wheel drive system which sends 40 per cent of the power to the front and 60 per cent of power to the rear wheels. The top speed of both models is limited to 250 km/h.
