    How fast is the new M157 twin turbo V8 powered 2013 G63 AMG? Not all that faster than the previous G55 AMG, Car and Driver test results

    This might sound odd considering the new M157 Twin Turbo V8 from AMG is making a straightline missile out of almost everything it goes into in the Mercedes-Benz lineup. The problem facing the 2013 G63 AMG is that it is heaviest car this motor has gone into and even its 560 pound-feet of torque can't hide the heft of 5940 pounds. That's 128 pounds more than the seven passenger GL63 AMG which also gets the exact same motor.

    The G63 get from 0-60 to in 5.0 seconds and through the 1/4 mile in 13.5@106. That certainly is moving for an SUV but that is similar to what the previous G55 AMG did with its supercharged M113K 5.5 liter V8. The GL63 AMG which also was tested by Car and Driver just like this 2013 G63 AMG managed a 13.2@109 with 0-60 coming in 4.8 seconds. Yes, the GL is just slightly lighter but maybe it's the ancient aerodynamics of the G63 playing a role here?

    The full test numbers are below. Pay attention to the skidpad result which looks more fitting for a barge than an AMG. The G is simply showing its age but that also happens to be part of its appeal.

    What was the time? I usually access benzboost from work and they block YouTube.

    I've always been able to beat magazine times, and usually by a wide margin (not just at MIR either, Mr. @Sticky!)
