I thought there was already a Mercedes-AMG version of the GLC? You’re quite correct. Only now, there’s a better one. A V8 one. Last year Mercedes rolled out the GLC43 in SUV and four-door ‘coupe’ form, with bi-turbo V6 power. But AMG isn’t really known for its restraint, so why stop there? Why indeed, when there’s room in the GLC’s stubby nose for another pair of cylinders, and another 150 horsepower… So is the GLC63 a jacked-up C63, or a scrunched up E63? A bit of both, actually. Power outputs mirror the C63’s: the ‘S’ version we’re driving here develops 503bhp and 516lb ft, but you can spend a little less on a regular GLC63 with a detuned 469bhp, 479lb ft 4.0-litre V8.
