Been thinking of getting yourself a 2017 Mercedes-AMG G63 or 65? If you have, then maybe you would like to get something more special. The company just revealed two new versions of the said models. The Exclusive Edition will cost you around $177,978 (€163,125) for the G63 and $314,100 (€287,658) for the G65. The latter is currently the second most expensive Mercedes out there. It follows the G650 Landaulet (with a hefty price tag of around $527,400 or €500,000).
The Exclusive Edition is nearly €12,000 more expensive than the base model. So what comes with the extra twelve grand?
The off-road truck comes with stainless steel underguard and AMG-branded side strips. Aside from that, the company will provide buyers with a spare wheel cover that comes in the same colour as the truck, and aluminum rub strip inserts. Of course, they’ll top this off with a fancy set of 21-inch 5-twin-spoke ceramic-polished wheels. If buyers aren’t into that, they can instead get a set of 21-inch wheels in black finish with high-sheen rim flanges and side rib strips accented with carbon fiber (for the same price, I believe). The Exclusive Edition only offers one new special colour that is the matte AMG Monza Grey Magno, but the regular colours are available too.
Inside, customers can choose from a variety of combination for the two-tone nappa leather upholstery, the dashboard also has a two-tone leather finish. With any option, the G65 comes with a standard diamond pattern stitching on the center panels. To complete the cabin, Mercedes equips it with several features including heated seats, red seat belts, leather grab handles, and a two-tone AMG Performance steering wheel.
Under the hood, the special edition G65 still has the biturbo 6.0-liter V12 engine with 630 horsepower (463 kilowatts) and 737 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-metres) of torque, enabling the car to sprint from 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kph) in just 5.3 seconds, with a top speed of 143 miles per hour (230 kph).
The Designo Manufaktur Edition of the G350d is also available for €109,878, while the G500 is priced at €121,683. If you opt to get this model, you can save 24 percent as it comes with almost the same features as the regular version.
Are you willing to pay for that price for the Exclusive Edition G63 or 65? According to sources, the G-Class has been spotted several times being tested. Therefore, we can expect the production model to arrive later this year.
