SPY: The 2012 Mercedes-Benz G 65 AMG scooped in Stuttgart

Automedia's spy photographers have recently spotted a barely disguised G-Class prototype which looked to be the anticipated limited version G 65 AMG. The test vehicle was exiting the Research & Development Centre in Stuttgart when it was 'captured on tape'.

As previously said, this is the last time the Gelandewagen receives a solid update before its production is discontinued after 2015. While the exterior modifications will be mild, the interior will be almost completely rehauled and the 4x4 will also receive a complete technologycal package, including Merc's latest safety, assistance and infotainment systems. The entire range of engines is set to be revised with the constructor's brand new creations: the range-topping G 500 is expected to receive the V8 biturbo BlueDIRECT gasoline engine rated at 435 hp. If we talk about the Big Daddy G 55 AMG, sources state it is destined to use the new 5.5-litre V8 with peak outputs starting from 525 hp up to 571 hp (Performance Package). Caught in the latest shots, the special G 65 AMG super-SUV will sport some crazy tweaks to the powertrain and chassis - the engine under the massive bonnet will most probably be the good ol' 6.0-litre V12, which was lately upgraded to 630 hp of maximum output. According to recent reports, the new G-Class fleet is bound for the official premiere in March 2012, at the Geneva Motor Show.
