Powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8, the Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG is not your ordinary SUV. Sure, inside you’re greeted with the high-class luxury you’d expect in a Benz, but this SUV is more than the fancy Nappa leather inside (although it’s certainly plus). It packs a punch -518hp/516lb-ft torque- thanks to that AMG badge. Even though it’s not MB’s most powerful AMG, for a heavy-ish SUV it can get out of its own way and runs up to 100mph in under 10 seconds.
We’ve dipped our toe into the SUV realm several times here, usually involving wheels and suspension. This time was no different as we took in this customer’s ML63: a sleek set of 22″ black XO Luxury XF1 shoes were wrapped in 305/30 Pirelli Pzero rubber, tucking into the Renntech module-lowered suspension nicely and eliminating that pesky wheel gap.
