Spy photographers spotted Mercedes-Benz new GLE 63 AMG Coupe virtually undisguised.

Previewed by the Concept Coupe SUV, the GLE 63 AMG sports an assertive front with a single bar grille and large air intakes.

The crossover has a ventilated hood, plastic body cladding and side steps with metallic accents. It also has a tailgate-mounted spoiler, a four-tailpipe exhaust and high-performance brakes with red callipers.
