Only a G-Class can be better than a G-Class. This is the credo followed by the developers with the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6x6, and they are now stepping up a gear with the G 550 4x4². The near-series show car is a new highlight in the superlative-rich history of the G-Class and blends all the advantages of the model series.
The 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine stands out for its sublime power delivery, the targeted lightweight construction, as well as its high efficiency. Producing 416 horsepower and 450 ft-lbs of torque, it features twin turbochargers which are not mounted on the outside of the cylinder banks but rather inside the V configuration – what is known as the 'hot inside V'. The advantages lie in the compact engine design, the optimum response and the low exhaust gas emissions.
