Mercedes-AMG Waves Goodbye To The G65 With Final Edition

With a new G-Class in development, Mercedes has decided to start guiding the current models towards the exit, this time with a special “final” edition for the G65 AMG version.

The Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition is said to “reflect the successful story of the world’s most powerful series production off-roader”. It will come out in just 65 examples worldwide, and each one starts at €310,233 in Germany, which equals to $365,213 at today’s exchange rates.

At its heart, it carries a 6.0-liter V12 lump, with twin turbochargers and multi-spark ignition, making 630PS (621hp) and 1,000Nm (738lb-ft) of torque. Transferring the output to all four corners is a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Naught to 100km/h (62mph) takes just 5.3sec, and top speed is electronically limited to 230km/h (143mph).

Its sporty appearance is highlighted by the matte bronze elements that adorn its body and can be found in the grille surround, underride guard, mirrors, and 21-inch wheels. Additionally, the V12 SUV boasts AMG Sport trim strips on the sides, silver brake calipers, matte black running boards and tailpipes, and high-gloss black exterior protective strips.

A similar theme is continued inside, where designo black nappa leather, topstitching, and carbon fiber elements can be found. Mercedes-AMG’s designers have also added floor mats with leather edging, and the milled ‘Edition’ lettering in the grab handle.
