The G65 AMG V12 and G63 AMG V8 arrive.

Posted on April 12, 2012

As a huge fan of the G-class, by Mercedes, we have been following the news of the G65 and G63 for some time. The G55 is one of favourite cars, if you have one for sale, please contact us as we are always looking for cars, we have run a number of cars and sold a few including a number of examples by uber tuning house Brabus.

Mercedes-Benz reveals the updated G Class for 2012 with two new AMG models – the V8 Mercedes G 63 AMG and V12 Mercedes G 65 AMG.

The Mercedes G Class may have been around since dinosaurs walked the planet, but Mercedes don’t want to let it go and with every new tweak they make the G Class gets even more desirable. Which defies logic.

Logic is also defied with the 2012 G Class updates with the introduction not just of the Mercedes G 63 AMG with the potent AMG V8, but the arrival of a Mercedes G 65 AMG. Yes, the G Class is going V12.

Mercedes has revealed a complete range of G Class models from the G 350 BlueTEC through the G 500 Cabriolet on up to the AMG models. But in the UK we’ll probably only see the G 350 and the G 63 – the chances of Mercedes building a RHD G 65 AMG seem slight.

Most of the changes wrought by Mercedes on the latest G Class are on the interior with a redesigned instrument cluster with a colour screen between two round dials. COMAND is standard with infotainment, SatNav and Internet access.

New options for the G Class include DISTRONIC Plus, Blind Spot Assist, Parktronic with reversing camera and Trailer Stability Assist. You can also dip in to the Designo option list for more individuality.

Outside the G C lass has had little to differentiate it from its predecessors – as you would expect – but it does now get a set of LED running lights and the G 63 AMG and G 65 AMG get an AMG grill, new bumpers, bigger air intakes and 20″ alloys with red brake calipers.

We have no UK prices for the 2012 Mercedes G Class at the moment, but the German price list shows the range starting at €85,311 for the G 350 BlueTEC and a rather steep €264,180 for the G 65 AMG. We have a G65 AMG in the system with our name on it, should you be in the enviable position to buy one, please contact us.
