of a G65 AMG
have been brewing for ages now, with talk of one-off builds for sheiks and 6.0-liter twin-turbo V-12s the meat of it. Today, a Mercedes-Benz dealer in New Orleans let the cat out of the bag--maybe.
It's a big, big cat, if it's a live one. The 2013 G65 AMG, this dealer suggests, will in fact get the 6.0-liter V-12 sporting twin turbos and 621 horsepower. As for torque, it's a suitably massive 737 pound-feet. Up-sized brakes help rein in the blocky berserker.
The dealer's press release suggests the 2013 G63 AMG
replaces the G55
, named for its new 5.5-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine. Rated at 536 horsepower, it's not too far behind the G65, and a beastly SUV in its own right.
So far, no official photos or information have been released, and it's possible the V-12 version won't come to North America at all. We'll keep you posted as details develop.
