Breathtakingly expensive, hugely powerful, and anachronistic in looks, the new engine produces 577 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque, gains of 14 horses and 66 lb-ft over the previous G63, and a healthy 161 hp and 171 lb-ft over the standard 2019 G550’s version of the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8.

Mercedes-AMG G63 effortlessly cool simply for being what they are: old-school players in a new-school world. Nothing about them makes sense, and that’s the whole point. To create these beasts, Mercedes-Benz’s AMG performance division starts with the Geländewagen, a four-wheel-drive military-style vehicle that has been in production as a civilian conveyance since 1979, and transforms it into two outrageously powerful, luxurious, and expensive machines that refuse to follow convention—for better and for worse. They are the boxes that don’t fit into any boxes.
