Yes, this is an 800bhp G63 AMG
German tuner mcchip-dkr has decided that the one thing Mercedes’ 544bhp G63 AMG didn’t have enough of was power. Make of that sentence what you will.
So, the capital-deficient modifier has remapped and tuned the Big Gee’s 5.4-litre bi-turbo V8 to produce 800 horsepowers and 700lb ft of torque. The two-tonne bus should get to 62 in less than four seconds, and on to 150mph. Gulp.

How has this been achieved? The bulk of the power comes from an engine remap, along with punchy new turbochargers. There are new steel connecting rods, turbo pipes and a new exhaust too, along with bolstered suspension and jumbo Movit brakes.
To complete the full Vader effect, it’s been suitably beefed up on the outside and acquired some shiny 18-inch footwear. Headlight prison bars occur.

It’s certainly visually arresting, but still relatively tasteful compared to some G63s we’ve grimaced at in the past. One thing is for certain, though: There Will Be More Modded G63s. You have been warned.
