Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG

The new G 55 AMG. Ahead of the field, whatever the terrain. A supercharged 5.5-litre V8 engine with an output of 350 kW (476 hp) and 700 newton metres of torque – the technical characteristics speak for themselves. The jury which awarded the new G 55 AMG powerplant the title of “Best Performance Engine” praised the “blistering performance” delivered by the “brilliantly smooth and charismatic V8”, which they described as “... very powerful, and completely without temperament – the exact opposite of most frenetic high-performance engines.” Further highlights of the G 55AMG which can be seen on the following pages include 18-inch AMG light-alloy wheels with 285/55 R18 tyres, flared wheel arches finished in the body colour, an AMG exhaust system with twin sideventing endpipes, a silver-painted radiator grille and brushed aluminium trim strips.

Form, not conformity

The G-Class: a legend wrought from metal. It has remained resolutely true to itself and goes against the flow with its distinctive, angular lines. Long since elevated to cult status, it stands out in even the most striking surroundings. Under the mighty wings of the “Angel of the North”, for example, or on the hexagonal stones of the “Giant’s Causeway” – settings which, like the G-Class, reflect the triumph of form over conformity.

Aboard the G-Class, you really feel that you are on top of every situation. Not least thanks to the comfortable, elevated position of the front seats which are electrically adjustable as standard. Multicontour seats for the driver and front passenger makes arriving after any journey relaxed. Heated front seats are standard in the G 55 AMG. The convenient buttons on the multifunction steering wheel allow you to call up information on the central display of the instrument cluster, programme convenience functions and operate the radio and give voice commands to change songs. For easier entry and exit, the steering wheel automatically moves to its highest position on removal of the ignition key and when in reverse the passenger side mirror will tilt down to give you a detailed view of the empty parking spot.

The impressive volume of the G-Class luggage compartment is revealed by an ice model of its interior. With a capacity of 2250 litres (in the case of the long Station Wagon), you’ll have
all the space you need – whether you’re going on a shopping trip or a trek across the Arctic.

Discover the inner strengths of the G-Class. Strengths based on technology which is as unique as the vehicle’s form. And the experienced specialists who assemble the G-Class in Graz are committed to ensuring that it stays that way. Take the body, for example, seen here prior to painting. Its design has scarcely changed since production started back in 1979. Now, as then, the panels (up to 2.5 mm thick and galvanised on one side) which make up the all-steel body are painstakingly welded and finished by hand. Few other cross-country vehicles are still built in this way, but where the quality of the G-Class is concerned, nothing is too much trouble.
