When Mercedes-Benz first unveiled the G-Class to the public over 30 years ago, the thoroughbred off-roader received much praise for its off-road capability and robust design. That said, the original “G”, as fans around the world soon began to call it, could hardly be described as sporty or comfortable. Over the past three decades, however, the G-Class has been transformed – although its original off-road strengths still remain. One of the key milestones during this remarkable rise to cultmobile status was laid back in 1979 when AMG unveiled the first sporty variant of the G-Class. Ever since its inception, AMG has focussed on developing powerful drive systems displaying the high quality standards readily associated with Mercedes-Benz.
Today the G 63 AMG and the 12-cylinder G 65 AMG are among the most powerful models in the off-roader segment.
