We’ve recently had a chat with a Mercedes source, which offered us the specs and pricing for the 2012 G-Class facelift. We’ve already covered the standard model and the fresh G63 AMG, so it’s now time for the V12-gifted G-Class.

The rugged vehicle comes with AMG’s 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 delivering 612 hp, which is matted to the AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission, so you’ve got plenty of muscle to play with those who think that their coupes know what performance means.

Of course, before you go out and put those 12 cylinders to work, you’ll have to pay EUR222,000 (USD290,890 at the current exchange rates), plus VAT, for this big toy for big boys, with the vehicle entering the scene in June. Oh, and be careful with the throttle, red carpets are so easy to tear...
