Mercedes-AMG is due to reveal its second-generation GLE 63 Coupé at the Geneva motor show in March, but new spy images have given us a revealing glimpse at the coupé-SUV's design. 

The prototype is adorned with the same AMG design cues as the standard GLE 63 that was revealed at last year's Los Angeles motor show, including quad tailpipes, an aggressively styled front bumper and a Panamericana grille.

The new GLE 63 Coupé will use the same twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre petrol V8 with 48V mild hybrid technology to pump out up to 603bhp and 627lb ft in the full-fat S form. Power will be sent to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic gearbox, with a bias towards the rear. 

The GLE Coupé range is currently topped by the AMG GLE 53, which was revealed last year. This less potent model features the same performance-oriented styling upgrades as the GLE 63 but is powered by a new mild hybrid 3.0-litre straight-six engine.

The standard GLE Coupé has only just hit the market, and we can expect the hardcore AMG duo to go on sale very soon after their Geneva show debut. 

As well as the new Porsche Cayenne Coupé, the GLE 63 Coupé will go up against the Audi RS Q8 and a new BMW X6 M as competition intensifies in the flourishing performance SUV-coupé segment.

An amorphous shapeless lump.

Mercedes design under Gordon Wagener's leadership is disastrous.

Oh Mercedes

 This, and I'm only echoing other posters here, is one Butt ugly car, what were they thinking?
