If you thought your G55 AMG was amazingly special, wait until you see what happens when you add 10 to that number and make it a G65 AMG. Instead of a simple V8, you get the nectar of the gods: a twin-turbo V12 engine, basically a detuned version of the one offered in the Pagani Huayra exotic supercar.

Thanks to this V12 heart transplant, the G5 AMG has new life coursing through its axles, namely 612 hp and 737 lb-ft of torque (1,000 Nm), allowing the offroader to play the 0 to 62 mph game in 5.3 seconds and hitting an electronically limited top speed of 143 mph (230 km/h).
The most amazing bit about this SUV is not the power, it’s the price! The European list price in Germany is €264,380. As Patrick3331, who filmed this video in Dubai, puts it: either you buy one of these G65s, or two G63s in two different colors.
However, money is not a problem to some people, and having the best SUV on the planet is a matter of pride for some people.
Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
