Right now, the G63 is probably the highest spec of the G Class that customers can buy, but Mercedes-AMG will allow you to have an even cooler G63 if you are willing to spend a little more. A few weeks ago, we witnessed the sinister looking Edition 1, and now, the Affalterbach is showing us the optional Night Package for the reputable off roader in the AMG variant.
Though the aforementioned special edition model is only available for 12 months, the Night Package is not time sensitive. In fact, it will be available for the G63 for as long as we know. As its name suggests, the package includes a number of black styling elements on the outside. The only exception here is that customers who get the car in black as a base colour cannot order this package. We do think that this makes a lot of sense because then the accents will not be noticeable.
When customers tick the “Night Package” box, the turn signals will now have a black tint, while the side mirror caps, and the outer ring of the spare wheel will also get an Obsidian Black finish. Some parts of the front and rear bumpers, and the side skirts, will be finished in black too. The rear windows will then be tinted, and black underbody protectors finish off the exterior upgrades.
To make your G63 look even tougher, the automaker will also provide a new set of 21 inch alloy wheels, but customers will have a choice to get a set of 22 inch wheels.
This package may actually remind you of the regular G-Class that is fitted with the Night package as well, which we saw earlier this year.
If you think that this package is amazing, then we are telling you that there will be something even cooler coming your way, as the automaker already announced that the AMG range will expand beyond the G63. It might be too early for us to decipher what this means, and we can’t jump to conclusions yet on whether the V12 will actually make a comeback, but we will not keep our hopes too high.
We also have to consider that the biturbo 6.0 liter powerhouse is expected to only be available on Maybach models and so we do not expect the G to have this. There will likely be a Maybach branded G later on like the G650 Landaulet, which was revealed in Geneva around a year ago.
If black is your favourite colour, or if you just want to turn over to the dark side (apart from just looking cool, of course), we think that the Night Package is the perfect upgrade for you.
