The ongoing generation of the Geländewagen is ready to sign the papers for its retirement, but not before going on a Final Edition mission in its most potent iteration, the AMG G65.
The long-lived model is certainly an iconic staple of the automotive industry, and Mercedes is keen to offer it a great farewell – and one that will also see it rack some profits. The AMG G65 Final Edition is going to be limited to just 65 units worldwide, each costing no less than 310,233 euro if we speak of the European market. Defining features for this swan song will include bronze accents on the exterior for a high-end appeal, with the finish readied for the 21-inch wheels, bumpers, front grille surround, mirrors, and center section of the spare wheel cover at the back. Other elements include a black mesh center of the grille and high-gloss black trim in the protective strips for the sides.
Move inside the Final Edition and you’ll forget the G Class was initiated back in 1979 – black nappa leather for the seats, carbon-fiber-like finish for the bolsters’ upholstery and bronze contrast stitching for the diamond-quilted center area, complete with carbon-fiber trim of a light brown weave will be ready for the occupants – who also get heated and ventilated seats. Just like any other G65, the Final Edition comes with a 6.0-liter biturbo V12 with 621 horsepower (463 kilowatts) and 738 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-meters) of torque, the even-speed automatic sending power to the AWD system. The hulking SUV does get top notch performance: 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 5.3 seconds and an electronically limited maximum speed of 143 mph (230 kph).
