Visually you’ll be hard-pressed to tell the updated Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-Door Coupe from its predecessor.

    Mercedes-Benz says the first examples of the subtly updated four-door will arrive late this year “subject to production scheduling”, with more details – such as pricing – available closer to launch.

    The revised sedan utilises the GT 63 E Performance’s front fascia, which includes slightly wider lower intakes with vertical, rather than horizontal, bars.

    Like the recently revised six-cylinder models, the GT 63 and GT 63 S can now be specified with either spectral blue metallic and spectral blue magno paint.

    There’s also the option of the new Night Package II, and a host of additional interior colour and trim choices.

    Those wanting even more customisation can dip into the Manufaktur catalog, which includes 10 extra paint options, three stripe packages, a two-tone steering wheel, diamond quilted Nappa leather, and plusher floor mats.

    If that’s too much choice to wade through, the V8 “coupe” is also available in two special edition models, one with green light magno paint and blacked out trim, and the other with rubellite red metallic.

    European pricing for these special editions start from €16,826.60 ($26,210).

    Under the bonnet lives an unchanged version of AMG’s 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. In the GT 63 the engine has been tuned to deliver 430kW between 5500 and 6500rpm, and 800Nm between 2350 and 5000rpm.

    In the GT 63 S the V8 cranks out 470kW between 5500 and 6500rpm, and 900Nm between 2500 and 4500rpm.

    Both drivetrains are fitted with a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as standard.

    With the pre-facelift model only the S variant of the V8 GT 63 4-door Coupe was sold in Australia.

    For the sake of comparison, the AMG GT 63 S E Performance has 620kW and 1400Nm at its disposal thanks to its V8 plug-in hybrid drivetrain.

    It can also manage 12km of silent, tailpipe emissions-free driving, if you’re in the mood for that sort of thing.
