Mercedes-Benz’s performance division AMG has posted an image and a teaser video of the upcoming, range topping GLE 63 Coupe ahead of its reveal at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show.

As with any AMG model, the GLE 63 features an aggressive body kit that is characterized by wider wheel arches, large air vents, 20-inch AMG rims, deep bumpers and side skirts, and a sweet AMG exhaust system with a quartet of tailpipes. Inside, expect the GLE 63 to be upholstered in a mix of Alcantara and leather, trimmed with options like Carbon fiber and wood, and feature a dynamic instrument cluster.
However, Mercedes-AMG have still not confirmed the powerplant under the hood of the GLE 63. Reports speculate that the X6 M-rival could be powered by the 4.0-liter twin turbo V8 unit sourced from the AMG GT. If so, it may be offered in two flavors: a standard 462 bhp variant similar to the AMG GT, and a more powerful “S” variant that could produce 510 bhp, like in the C63 S.
Mercedes-Benz will reveal their latest AMG Sport line and the GLE Coupe family (including the AMG-spec GLE 63) at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. If introduced in India, the GLE would rival the new BMW X6 which is reported to go on sale by mid-2015.
