Mercedes-Benz launches new AMGs in Bahrain
Manama, January 9, 2013
Al Haddad Motors, the Mercedes-Benz dealer in Bahrain, yesterday launched the German carmaker's latest AMG range of vehicles.
Six vehicles in the AMG range -the C 63 Coupé, C 63 AMG, CLS 63, ML 63, SLK 55 and SLS -were unveiled at the event, at the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain Hotel and Spa.
The new C 63 AMG, available in saloon and estate versions, is powered by an AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine. Developing a peak output of 457 hp and maximum torque of 600 Nm, the high-revving engine delivers unrivalled figures in this segment. The C 63 AMG accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.
Graeme Newport, general manager of Al Haddad Motors, said: “The exterior of the C-63 has been made in such a way that choosing to ignore a look of this monster would just simply be injustice.”
This vehicle comes with a complete AMG Performance package, he said.
The new C 63 AMG Coupé is a stand-alone high-performance car which offers unmistakable design with a high-performance drive system and dynamic handling. The C 63 AMG Coupé also enhances the AMG family of coupés.
Mark Price, sales marketing manager of Al Haddad Motors, said the AMG 6.3-litre V8 engine in the C 63 Coupé has a maximum output of 457 hp and peak torque of 600 Nm, delivering powerful traction and first-class performance figures. The Coupé accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and the top speed is 250 km/h making it one of the fastest coupes in the world.
The new Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG offers exciting design, ultimate performance and ground-breaking efficiency. The top-of-the-range version of the segment’s first four-door coupé is equipped with the newly developed 557hp AMG V8 biturbo engine. Visually, the CLS 63 AMG impresses with its sporty appearance and distinctive exterior and interior design.
“The new CLS 63 AMG continues the success story of the previous generation CLS 63, which has delighted customers around the world since 2004”, said Newport. “The CLS 63 AMG is a unique high –performance car – it sets new standards in design, performance and efficiency.”
The new AMG 5.5-litre V8 biturbo engine boasts a host of innovative high-tech components. With the AMG Performance Package, it accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in less than 4.4 seconds. The intelligent lightweight construction makes a significant contribution towards addressing the classic conflicting goals of low weight and high strength.
Newport also announced an addition to the Al Haddad Motors sales team with the appointment of Salman Yousif as the showroom manager.
The new ML 63 AMG sets new standards in terms of performance, exclusivity and a superlative driving experience, said Newport. “As the inventor of the high-performance SUV, we remain true to the philosophy with this 3rd generation ML63 AMG,” he said.
He said the SLK 55 AMG is the perfect embodiment of the new AMG brand claim of “Driving Performance”. In the compact high-performance roadster segment there is nothing to compare to its combination of tangible driving dynamics, superior sportiness, unique high-technology and low fuel consumption, Newport said. – TradeArabia News Service
