Here in Australia, buyers receive a single, highly specified variant priced at $399,900, which picks up an adaptive air suspension system, carbon ceramic brake rotors, rear-wheel steering, a variable exhaus system and a heap of AMG styling tweaks.

Inside, the GT 63 S E Performance picks up a four-seat layout, with Nappa leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats, ambient lighting, three-zone climate control, a glass sunroof and a wireless smartphone charger as standard equipment.

Technology inside the GT 63 S E Performance includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster paired with a 12.3-inch infotainment display, head-up display with augmented reality navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a 14-speaker Burmester surround sound system.

The GT 63 S E Performance’s safety equipment list features autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keep assistance, adaptive cruise control, rear cross-traffic alerts and nine airbags inside the cabin.

For those interested, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S E Performance has officially hit dealerships, with prices standing at $399,900 before on-road costs.
