Performance-wise not much has changed since 1979 in the Mercedes Benz AMG’s off-road veteran. A truck-load of torque still runs this classic wagon, keeping up with its reputation as one of the toughest off-roaders ever. The new-gen AMG G63 that premiered globally in January earlier this year has finally arrived in india. It comes with the frills of 2018 - 585 bhp 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo engine, AMG Speedshift TCT 9G transmission, AMG Ride Control, flawless leather seats, bespoke interiors, luxurious media system and is now available at a starting price of ₹2.19crore (ex-showroom India). The direct descendent of the first G model maintains the performance of G class’ high-performance vehicles and remains an unrivalled legend in off-road conditions. We’d surely think twice before roughing it out in the wilderness. Your daddy better be prepared to fix some scratches and wipe off the dust lest you try it out on the beaten path!
