This G 63 AMG is Surfing in The Desert

Such markets are the US, Russia and of course the Middle East, where the G 63 AMG has become somewhat of a cult.

In fact, owning a Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG in cities like Dubai might actually be recommended, as most rich sheiks love driving in the nearby desert. What more appropriate vehicle to surf the sand waves than a V8-engined off-roader with three locking differentials is there?

The image was taken by Deniz Saylan for Mercedes-Benz and was awarded “Best Image” in Automotive and Transportation by the BFF (the German Association of Freelance Photographers).
