Powered by the completely new, 100 per cent AMG-specific 6.3-litre V8 engine with an output of 510 hp and a maximum torque of 630 Nm, the "Vision R 63 AMG" promises an unprecedented combination of unrivalled, sporty driving enjoyment, generous interior dimensions and maximum comfort for up to six passengers.

The Grand Sports Tourer from Mercedes AMG makes its unique status in the automotive market clear at the very first glance. Externally, the powerful show car differs from the series-production version of the R Class in many important details. The body of the Vision R 63 AMG glistens in a dark titanium grey, with all the trim elements glimmering in a matt version of the same titanium colour. The newly designed front and rear aprons in the typical AMG look, the bi-xenon headlamps with titanium-coated reflectors and the chromed twin tailpipes of the AMG sports exhaust system convey an impression of pure dynamism. Featuring the same matt titanium paintwork as the other trim, the 21-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in the five-spoke design with 265/40 R 21 wide-base tyres all around lend the almost 5.2-metre-long Grand Sports Tourer a distinctive profile. Behind the spokes of the AMG light-alloy wheels, one finds the substantial AMG high-performance braking system that guarantees the shortest possible stopping distances.

The new AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine enables driving performance at the level of purebred sports cars. With its 510 hp output and 630 Nm of torque, the newly developed high-displacement AMG eight-cylinder Naturally Aspirated engine allows supreme performance and dynamics. It accelerates the Vision R 63 AMG to 100 km/h in about five seconds and gives it a maximum speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited). Power is transmitted by an AMG SPEEDSHIFT automatic transmission with steering-wheel gearshift buttons and a DIRECT SELECT gearshift lever. The combination of permanently engaged all-wheel drive with a power distribution of 40 : 60 between the front and rear axle, AMG sports chassis and AIRMATIC air suspension with the adaptive damping system allows maximum driving safety and - depending on the buttons pushed by the driver - either a dynamic or a more comfortable driving style.

The interior of the Vision R 63 AMG features generous proportions, a stylish colour scheme and an air of supreme luxury. The two-colour nappa leather in titanium/black, the AMG sports seats in the first two rows, the AMG ergonomic sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles and the AMG instrument cluster all convey a sporty flair. To match the exterior styling of the showcar, all the interior trim is in the matt titanium grey colour - rounded out by piano black trim elements on the front centre console. The passengers in the second and third rows can select their own entertainment programme with the installed DVD player. Integrated into the headrests of the front seats are four seven-inch TFT flat panel monitors. To help ensure perfect comfort and a relaxed ride, the Vision R 63 AMG provides two fold-down tables for the single middle seats as well as the multi-zone THERMOTRONIC system, which guarantees all six passengers pleasant climate control while travelling.
