Let’s say that you’re a spy photographer and you come across a new target. The car you’re about to shoot is wearing the Mercedes-Benz badge and is nothing short of an automotive icon. It also comes with an AMG badge and a ground clearance that would make people who use stilts jealous. You’ve hit the jackpot, you’re shooting the G55 AMG.
However, our spy photographers were sad when the noise coming from under the hood confirmed the fact that they were dealing with a V8. How is that possible? Well, since a Daimler source recently confirmed to us that a V12-powered G65 AMG is coming, they had the task to seek that car, not the G55 AMG.

Anyway, back to the spied car. There have been rumors that the G55 AMG will be killed for the 2012 model year, with the supercharged V8 being replaced by the 6.2-liter V8 or by the new 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8, which would mean that we’re looking at the G63 AMG.

We promise to be back with info that will make things clear as soon as we get our hands on it.

Wait, don’t go, we have something we want to ask you.... so, what do you say? Should they get paid for this photos or not?
