2018 Mercedes-AMG G 65 Final Edition is a €310,233 parting gift to current G-Class
Only 65 units will be made, each sporting distinctive bronze accents
With the current Mercedes-Benz G-Class on its way out, the brand's performance division has deemed fit to release a Final Edition version based on the range-topping G 65.
Limited to 65 units worldwide, the Mercedes-AMG G 65 Final Edition is equipped with everything one could think of when specifying a G-Class — and then some.
On the outside, Final Edition models can be recognized thanks to several elements finished in matt bronze including the 21-inch twin-spoke alloy wheels, mirror caps, under-ride guard, front bumper trim, and grille surround. That's not all, obviously, as styling upgrades also include silver brake calipers, AMG Sport trim strips on the sides, black mesh radiator grille, as well as matt black running boards and tailpipes.
As you can imagine, the interior is unique, exhibiting a designo black nappa leather upholstery with seat side bolsters in a carbon-fiber look and topstitching in light brown, as well as carbon fiber trim and decorative stitching in bronze. Other styling tweaks include the milled Edition lettering in the grab handle, as well as floor mats with leather edging in light brown and topstitching in black.
As for features, highlights include the flat-bottomed AMG Performance steering wheel in black nappa leather, and the Seat Comfort package that includes multi-contour seats and climatized seats for driver and front passenger.
Under the hood, there's a 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 gasoline engine that makes 630 hp and a monumental 1,000 Nm (737 lb-ft) of torque. Mated to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G‑Tronic automatic transmission the mighty 12-cylinder unit allows the G 65 to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds and reach an electronically limited top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph). You can order your Mercedes-AMG G 65 Final Edition right now, provided you have €310,233 to spare in Germany. That's about $366,391 at the current exchange rates.
And now, here's a question: would you have the G 65 Final Edition or the 900-hp Brabus 900 One of Ten?
