The Corporate Executive’s Sports Car: Mercedes AMG GT 63S

There is an unspoken rule in corporate America that the most senior leader within a group always drives. I don’t know where it came from, but it applies to driving to work lunches, sales meetings, and business trips. So what happens when an executive is a performance enthusiast? Him or her is often left with two choices: Get a Porsche Panamera or BMW M5. But now there is a new and more extreme kids on the block, the 4-door Mercedes AMG GT 63S.

Out of the bunch, the Mercedes AMG GT 63S is the only one that feels like a true sports car. For starters, the noise and silhouette of the car look like an elongated 2-door Mercedes AMG GT. And then when you get to the back of the car, you will notice a jaw dropping rear wing. It makes an elegant statement that the car means business without looking like a boy racer in the company parking lot.

The rear end of the Mercedes AMG GT 63S is backed up by a quad-exhaust that produces an earth shattering rumble in full performance sport+ mode. 663 horsepower can then be released from an AMG hand assembled 4.0L bi-turbo engine with zero lag. This, in combination with a 9-speed gearbox, delivers super car 0-to-60mph accelerations times as quick as 3.1 seconds. That is only a couple tenths of a second closer than a Ferrari 488 GTB. And yet, this 4-door executive sedan can comfortably accommodate four adults on a road trip with luggage.

While the exterior of this car look an enlarged 2-door Mercedes AMG GT, the interior looks more like a Mercedes S-Class and an AMG GT had a baby. I see a resemblance of both vehicles. The steering wheel and seats from an S-Class, and the center console of the AMG GT. I personally would have liked to see more sport and less luxury, but at $200,000+ for a fully equipped model, your clients and employees deserve the extra comfort.
