“Monster horsepower, a bit rubbish, but lots of fun.”
The car that first arrived back in 1979 has stood the test of the time and the latest incarnation is the 2013 G63 AMG powered by a 5.5-liter biturbo V8 with 544hp and 560lb-ft of torque.
€135,000 will get you the G63, but if you want a V12, then the G65 comes in at a cool €260,000. Evo boss Harry Metcalfe spent an afternoon with the G63 and in the video he talks through his ‘love hate relationship' with the car that stylistically hasn't changed much in thirty years. He then tests it out on twisty roads, where it has a tough time and pushes it to the limits on the autobahn where the monster car is in its element.
