Amongst these phenomenal African designers, fashionistas will be treated to a sneak preview of the breath-taking and irresistible S 63 AMG Coupé, the latest dream car to augment the Mercedes-AMG model range. Exciting lines underpin this two-door model's design. Dominance and sensual purity combine to enhance the vehicle’s stunning presence and effortlessly superior sportiness. Equally impressive is the combination of high driving dynamics, ambitious lightweight construction and groundbreaking efficiency.
Also making an appearance will be the all new GLA 45 AMG; with this model the performance brand of Mercedes-Benz makes a dynamic statement in the strongly growing segment of the compact SUV. The combination of powerful-distinctive design, exclusive appointments as well as superior engine power and driving performance is unique: the most powerful series-production four-cylinder engine in the world puts 265 kW and 450 Newton metres on the road.
