Famous Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor seems to have a thing for powerful cars. He has some really interesting models, including a Porsche Cayenne GTS, Jaguar XKR-S, Range Rover Vogue, and a Mercedes S-Class with an AMG body kit. Recently, the actor has added another powerful car to his garage in the form of the Mercedes GLE 43 AMG Coupe. It has an ex-showroom price of Rs 86.4 lakh.
The Mercedes GLE 43 AMG Coupe is powered by a 3.0-litre, bi-turbo petrol motor that outputs a maximum power of 367 bhp along with a peak torque of 520 Nm. The motor comes mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. This makes the GLE Coupe go from 0-100 in 5.7 seconds. The car has an electronically limited top speed of 250 kmph. The SUV gets a four-wheel drive system. The GLE 43 AMG Coupe is the fourth car in Shahid’s garage to come from the renowned Stuttgart-based German car marque. Other Mercedes Benz models in his garage include the latest-gen S-Class, the GL-Class, and the ML-Class. While the S-Class in Shahid’s garage is the S400 petrol variant, the GL-Class and the ML-Class SUVs are GL350 CDI and the ML250 CDI variants, respectively.
The S400 is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 engine that produces a maximum power of 329 Bhp and 480 Nm of maximum torque. The GL350 CDI comes with a 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine that outputs a maximum power of 258 Bhp along with a peak torque of 620 Nm. The ML250 CDI, on the other hand, comes with a 2.2-litre turbo diesel engine that outputs a maximum power of 203 bhp along with a peak torque of 500 Nm. As you can figure out, the GLE 43 AMG Coupe is a lot more powerful than all other Mercedes cars in the actor’s garage. The only SUV in the actor’s garage that is more powerful than the GLE 43 AMG Coupe is the Porsche Cayenne GTS, which comes with a 3.6-litre V6 twin turbo petrol engine that puts out 434 Bhp and 600 Nm.
However, what really sets the GLE 43 AMG Coupe apart is its very attractive coupe-crossover design. The design of this Mercedes crossover combines the athleticism of a coupe with the brawniness of an SUV. Furthermore, the AMG variant looks even more aggressive due to the various sporty details it carries.
