Mercedes-Benz Announces G65 AMG, Power And Price Both Ridiculous

2013 Mercedes-Benz G Class

So the rumors have finally proved true: Mercedes-Benz will build a G65 AMG. Unfortunately, it was left out of the U.S. announcement, indicating it probably won't be available here. Still, a 612-horsepower, quarter-of-a-million-euros SUV merits some attention.

Yes, the G65 AMG will cost nearly a quarter of a million euros--or about $347,000 at today's exchange rates. The price is the only thing more insane than the 612-horsepower, 738 pound-foot twin-turbo V-12 engine under the hood. It's the "most powerful series-produced cross-country vehicle in the world" according to Mercedes-Benz. We believe it.

Like the rest of the updated 2013 G Class range, the new G65 AMG will share in some minor exterior updates and a whole new interior inside.

Of course, the real consideration when buying a G65 AMG is whether it's worth two G63 AMGs, which is how much it costs. Or if it's worth as much as, say, a Ferrari 458 Italia and a G63 AMG. Or three Corvette ZR1s.

Fortunately, it looks like we won't have to make such hard choices on this side of the pond.

  1. How come they didn't release the images of the G63? A really strange move from Mercedes...
