Benz’s new AMG-fettled G-Wagens

G 63 AMG is camp on the way to the price pinnacle of G 65

What is a tenth of a second To an Olympian, it can mean the difference becoming a legend and not even on the podium. To a racing driver, it can be the between starting on pole or back in the pack. To a cricketer, it can be the between being smacked in the or hooking a bouncer for six.

But AMG performance offshoot thinks a of a second to 100km/h is, to a select of people, worth a full, V8-powered G63 off-roader.

Some AMG insist, are so enamoured and fixated V12 engines that they never even countenance a V8, no how good it might be.

That’s why AMG feels it can charge almost twice the price of the G 63 for the V12 version of its face lifted even though the V12 only the smaller-engined SUV to 100km/h by a tenth of a

While the G63 AMG twin-turbo V8 is, at €137,504, a step up from the more-mainstream V8’s €100,000 price tag in the V12-powered G65 AMG lists at an outrageous

Yet AMG insists the low volumes, high costs and extreme exclusivity of the V12 all justify it costing almost as much as AMG’s own V8 G63. in all likelihood (and if other are any guide), the G63 will be the better

It doesn’t really matter you go for the 400kW V8 G63 or the 450kW G65, both of them are Quixotic to turn the square-rigged old SUV into an

Undoubtedly the least agile AMG has ever thought of for either of the two the G63 and G65 AMG will turn the hard-core hopper into something fast – at least in a straight and at least up to 100km/h.

The 5.4-litre V8 smoke the G-Wagen to 100km/h in 5.4 while the monster, with the V12, will get there 0.1 seconds faster. They’re the AMGs available, though, the G63 topping out at 210km/h and the G65 hitting its at 230km/h.

That won’t most people, though, the V8 has a crushing 760Nm of torque to it explode in the mid-range, and it chimes in just 2000rpm. It’s and 60Nm stronger than the old G55 and far cleaner. The V12 is even more with AMG limiting it to 1000Nm of in an effort to coax the expected out of its seven-speed automatic gearbox.

In spite of Benz’s recent to reduce its fuel consumption, the V12 in shows no general interest in the of natural resources, swallowing 17 on the combined fuel economy whilst emitting almost 400 of CO2/km. The G63’s consumption of 13.8 litres/100km is, surprisingly, a litre better than the G500 V8’s number.

But V12 will need to be committed to the because its price will, in effectively buy two of the G63 AMGs.

It also scores the AMG seven-speed gearbox that is, effectively, a version of Mercedes-Benz’s in-house auto with a faster-shifting, electronically controlled clutch sitting at the back of it instead of a torque converter.

Its installation the AMG G-Wagen twins have an Eco to go with the Comfort, Sport, and paddle-shift manual modes, it’s hard to imagine paying the V12’s differential the V8 and then being even interested in its start-stop technology.

AMG has fiddled with bearings in the the automatic gearbox and the transfer to lower cruising noises, both cars also new wheels, tyres and brakes.

The G63 squeezes new 375mm brake and six-piston calipers inside the front wheels and 275/50 while 330mm discs fit inside the rear wheels.

the already-lumpy G-Wagen gets with an AMG-spec twin-slot with extended holes the bumper bar for the cooling requirements of the engine and LED daytime running

Both cars benefit the upgrades to the standard G-Wagen’s taking advantage of the new infotainment, and satnav hardware and software to up with a TFT screen, unique AMG and seats and more comfort all

That doesn’t mean AMG has removed the G-Wagen from its roots, because it retains its locking differentials and the driver-operated for them. It also has a new hill-holder, holds the brakes to help hill starts.
