The G63 AMG is full of character, has a growling V8 and possesses the ability to cross continents without a sweat. Now it comes with a bunch of crazy colours and a few exterior updates now... Here’s our review
All you need to do is key it in and give it some revs, and instantly you know that this boxy brute is something special. The violence of those eight pistons firing all cylinders gives the G63 AMG a slight shake while standing still. That biturbo V8 up front informs its dear occupants of its ability to twist this mammoth like squeezing water from a wet cloth. It’s certainly going to be a good day ahead.
Say hello to the reincarnation of the Hulk, in this ‘Crazy Colour’ edition as Mercedes-Benz proudly states. The G63 AMG can now be ordered in three such colours, the Alien Green our test car comes with, Orange (Sunset Beam) and Yellow (Solar Beam). If you want an oldschool offroader with a mental engine, three difflocks and a colour bright enough to light up a small town, you are probably going to buy one of these. Of course there’s the matter of having Rs 2.5 crore of spare change.
