Earlier this month we reported details of an upcoming AMG hot-rod version of the iconic G-Class SUV. Now, Mercedes‘ AMG division has given us official information on the thing, essentially confirming much of what we already knew.
The G63 AMG sports a 5.5-liter twin-turbo (or as Mercedes calls it Bi-Turbo) V8 cranking out 544 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque, teamed with the AMG Speed-Shift Plus seven-speed automatic transmission. If that isn’t enough, there’s always the option of stepping up to the even more powerful G65, which sports a 6.0-liter Bi-Turbo V12, rated at 612 hp and a monstrous 737 lb-ft of torque.
