It turns out at Mercedes-Benz the word final – as in the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition – doesn’t necessarily translate into the end for the long-lived W463 generation of the legendary G Class.
That’s because “just before the end of its period of manufacture” the automaker has something else to show for when discussing the impending demise of the Mercedes G-Class W463, a model that has been in continuous production since way back in 1990. Now the German manufacturer has decided to out the new W463 three-in-one Limited Edition. Available as a G350d, G350d Professional, and a strong G500, the latest version of the legendary machine is severely limited to just 463 examples from each series as homage to the company’s internal code. The G350d Limited Edition adds a designo mocha black metallic paint, the Professional counterpart features a china blue hue while the V8-powered G500 comes with an elegant designo platinum magno shade.
There are also additional goodies for each model – the G350d gets the sports, chrome, and exterior stainless-steel packages, along with AMG alloy wheels, tinted windows, heated windscreen, and an electric sunroof. The very manly Professional comes with the Professional Offroad package, along with the Loading Protection package and the G500 is balanced in between – getting the Chrome and Sports packages but also the Loading Protection package. Inside there’s even a Schöckl badge on the center armrest as a nod to the Schöckl Mountain in the Alps located near Magna Steyr’s factory in Graz. Prices in Germany kick off from €103,940 for the G350d Professional, followed by the G350d at €122,918, and the G500 at €140,164.
