$200,000 Mercedes-AMG G63 Is A 50th Birthday Present To Japan

Limited Edition

Why does Japan get all the best limited edition models?

This year, Mercedes-AMG is celebrating its 50th anniversary and to mark that milestone it will be unveiling the hotly-anticipated 1,000-hp Project One hypercar at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September as its birthday present to the world. Not to leave the ageing G-Class feeling left out, the automaker has unveiled the new Mercedes-AMG G63 50th Anniversary Edition. Unsurprisingly, it will be extremely limited – so limited, in fact, that it will only be available in Japan, much like the Mercedes CLA Star Wars Edition revealed last week.

Seriously, why does Japan get all the best limited edition models? Limited to only 50 units, distinguishing the Mercedes-AMG G63 50th Anniversary Edition is a unique Mauritius Blue paint finish that makes the G-Wagon stand out from the standard model. Contrasting the exterior finish are gloss black bumpers, roof, fenders, mirrors, and side trim, while black 20-inch AMG five-spoke wheels complement the dark flourishes. Inside, the luxurious interior is decked out in premium Designo leather with Mauritius Blue stitching matching the exterior, available in four different two-tone shades. 24 units will feature a Porcelain white interior, while 15 will be black, and six will be Mocha Brown.

The most exclusive color will be Saddle Brown with only five models available, and three of those options will feature black leather for a two-tone look. An AMG Carbon Fiber trim package also adds to the sporty image AMG is renowned for. Sadly, the special edition SUV doesn’t come with any performance perks. Like the standard G63, power is sourced from a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 that produces 563 horsepower and 561 lb-ft of torque mated to a seven-speed automatic gearbox. The Mercedes G63 50th Anniversary Edition can be yours for 22.2 million yen, which is around $194,604.
