Inching closer to production

Our spies have snapped new pictures of the 2012 Mercedes ML63 AMG.

Caught near the company's Nürburgring testing facility, the lightly camouflaged prototype has a revised grille, modified bumpers and a four-tailpipe exhaust system. Other goodies include a sport-tuned suspension, beefier brakes and AMG wheels.

Power will likely be provided by a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine with 525 PS (386 kW / 518 hp) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque. It will be connected to a seven-speed Speedshift MCT transmission, which should enable the SUV to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than five seconds.

This vehicle looks as if it has the option "performance pack" with the red brake calipers. On the E-Class it produces 410kW (557hp) and 800Nm, which is more than enough power. Should do 0 -60 MPH in less than 4.7 secs.

Why would the ML 63 AMG, which had the same amount of power as a previous E 63 AMG, now produce less? In fact, considering the BMW X5 M is good for 408kW (555 PS), AMG cannot be expected to make anything less.

Big MBZ guy, love the new motor, not feeling those low side skirts sort of looks like a minivan from the side.
