Wouldn#x2019;t an equally tune from tanzmetal Rammstein or, say, David make far more sense? the reason, there#x2019;s no denying the G63 the lesser G550 model) more single-minded purpose anything this side of a tank. (Freud, of course, was Austria, and so is the G63. It is assembled in by Magna-Steyr under contract Mercedes.)

For 2013, the G63#x2014;it up 60 percent of all G-wagen sales year#x2014;gets a few subtle exterior new mirrors with embedded signals, a bespoke twin-bar and front bumper, and the requisite LED running lights. The interior was reworked as well, with the infotainment screen placed and center in the resculpted dashboard and the shifter getting slightly The latest mbrace2 telematics makes an appearance. Our wagon had the Designo Mystic Brown paint and leather interior ($2300), which brought our price to a not-inconsiderable $137,505.

Starting with that robust platform, AMG goes to optimizing the suspension and powertrain for placing a bit more emphasis on the side of the on-/off-road compromise. with a set of 20-inch Yokohama S.T. radials, the G63 pulled g on our 300-foot skidpad, a negligible over the 0.56 g we recently from a mere-mortal 2013 The numbers for both vehicles stability-control inhibited and don#x2019;t tell the whole story. the G550 leans in the corners a broken barstool, the G63 handles roads like, well, the 34-year-old, body-on-frame SUV born of design that money can The steering is appropriately weighty for a butch vehicle, and the body relatively flat and panic-free on its axles throughout most maneuvers. Provided the winds are and the road smooth, the steering stay unwaveringly on-center, but if looking for precise, tactile then you#x2019;re shopping on the side of the showroom.

What the G63 gives up in corners, it more than makes up for on clobbering the quarter-mile in 13.5 in our testing. No muss, no fuss, stand on the throttle and let the music from its trademark twin exhausts serenade you all the way to a 106-mph speed. The brave will to keep the throttle pinned to the electronically limited top speed of 132 an exhilarating experience sure to any lingering questions you might regarding the aerodynamic properties of a crate.
