RUMOR: Potent G 65 AMG in the cards?
An unexpected rumor emerged these days, claiming a hardcore G 65 AMG version is currently under development. If the suspicions are true, then the offroader could receive the 6.0 liters twin-turbo V12 powerplant, that was recently tweaked and is now able to achieve 630 hp. Obviously, the tuner won't roll off too many examples of the above-mentioned G 65 AMG and it's a pity to mention the price tag will be extremely prohibitive, if this model really comes out in the end. In any case, this is not the first time when Mercedes-AMG creates bespoke, super G-Class variants, as the tuning company issued in 2002 a limited series run of G 63 AMGs powered by a V12 power-plant with a massive output of 444 hp. There are hints that a few G 65 AMG units were also built in that period, to emphasize the company's program for clients who desire to have their one-of-a-kind AMG vehicle.
