"The new AMG G 63 brings driving performance to the segment of unadulterated off-road vehicles in unexpected form".

"It was important for us to tie in with the original character on account of the cult status the G63 enjoys with our customers and fans. The vehicle has nevertheless reached a completely new dimension in terms of technology with the 4.0-litre V8 Bi-Turbo engine as well as in combination with the off-road characteristics, the agility and the vehicle dynamics achieved", explains Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

The AMG G63 is part of a growing number of high-performance SUVs that include the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Tesla Model X P100D.

Merc says its Ultra Range high beams produce the maximum amount of light allowed legally, but can only be used when no other road users are detected, the steering wheel is straight, and the speed is above 40km/h.
