Watch The Big, Boxy Mercedes-AMG G63 Go Like The Clappers

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class is big, looks good, is reasonably comfortable and can go quite far off the beaten track. Also, in AMG G63 guise, it’s a force to be reckoned with.

If you don’t faint at the steep starting price of $147,500 (€129,996) in the U.S., or €148,434.65 ($168,401) in Germany, and can instead afford it, you’ll get sports car performance with enough room for the whole family, plus a timeless design that people can’t seem to get enough of.

In addition to the sporty updates both inside and out, the G63 features adaptive damping sports suspension, performance exhaust, a rear-wheel drive-biased all-wheel drive system tuned by AMG, and a powerful engine breathing air from behind the Panamericana grille.

The 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 delivers 577 horsepower (585 PS / 430 kW) and 627 pound-feet (850 Nm) of torque to all four wheels via a smooth-shifting 9-speed auto. Pushing the throttle all the way down gets you from naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) in a startling, for a car of this size, 4.5 seconds, and on to a 149 mph (239 km/h) top speed if you opt with the AMG Driver’s Package. Which of course you will opt for, because you don’t want to be limited to a measly 137 mph (220 km/h), do you?

Now, on paper the planets seem to align for the 2019 AMG G63, but nothing beats a nice video with the driver going pedal to the metal. Mind you, the uploader went as far as measuring not only the sprint time, but also the quarter-mile, and performed a top speed run.

    Love this supercar!

    • Callanish

      You and I have a different opinion on what can be called a supercar. This is an overpriced truck with too much power for its chassis that can’t handle corners worth a crap.

      • Matt

        Have you driven the new one then?

        • Callanish

          Not the new one, only a G550. Yeah, I get it, it’s really fast in a straight line but a supercar, by definition, is more than that. You run out of confidence while driving this in the curves as it’s not even on par with a Range Rover SVR or Porsche Cayenne Turbo when it comes to handling. It’s bonkers in the straights as well as off road but a modern RS3 or M2 would leave it for dead in the Twisties. Very fast off-road vehicle, but no supercar in my opinion.

          • Matt

            But this is the new G-Class with a brand new platform (improved massively) so it drives nothing like the old one. Gone is the vague recirculating-ball steering, wooly handling and squirmish ESP, this one drives much like an SVR or any other modern performance SUV you care to mention.

            Remember the old one was still effectively a 1979 design underneath, this one is not.

  • Well if you can own this then you’ll probably have another supercar in your garage anyway…

    • PK

      it’s a rich thing.

  • Bash

    Honestly, who would expect anything less from a G63?!, Makes me want to see the G65.

    • Matt

      There will sadly be no G65 with this new generation, the V12 engine is being retired.

      • Bash

        I know, its kinda sad.

    Although, the Mercedes-Benz G-wagon/class has never been fond to me, I will give Mercedes-Benz credit when it is due because this G-wagon is one impressive but ugly vehicle (if that makes sense) to me. The overall concept of the vehicle hasn’t changed since the 460 code name G-wagon and that attribute, nevertheless, becomes an abstract of subjective opinions I have with this vehicle. I don’t like the retro look of the vehicle, it is too boxy, the rear-end is atrocious, and to make matters worse, the vehicle has a starting MSRP of a modern and modest sized house.

    I generally earn close to $6,000-$8,000 per month on the internet. I lost my job after working for the same organization for a long time, I wanted reliable earnings, I was not researching for the “get rich quick” home packages you can see all over the internet. Those are usually pyramid schemes or stuff in which you need to sell to your friends and family members. I basically required an authentic way to earn a living for me and my family. The best part of working on the net is that I am always home with the children and also enjoy time with family on different beaches of the world. All you need to do is fill out a very simple form to get front line access to the Home Profit System . You don’t have to be a computer whiz, but you should know how to use the net. If you can fill up forms and surf websites, you can do it quite easily, You don’t even have to sell anything at all and nobody needs to purchase anything.Here’s the best way to start out> IX2.CO/V73m
