World's Fastest Mercedes-Benz G 55 AMG Gets Dethroned

Back in December 2013 we were reporting about what we believed was the world's fastest Mercedes-Benz G-Class in the quarter mile, a Weistec-tuned G 55 AMG that managed the amazing feat of reaching the quarter mile (402 m) from a standing start in a seemingly-unbelievable 12.21 seconds.

Even more amazing was the fact that the monster G 55 AMG was mostly stock, with the only modifications being the replacement of its original supercharger with one from Weistec Engineering, a Weistec 82mm throttle body upgrade, new exhaust headers and 100 octane fuel in the tank.

Today it's time for a somewhat similar G-Wagen, only this one was modified by Eurocharged using some Weistec Engineering parts, with the three-liter twin-screw unit being probably the most important upgrade.

Paired with the engine being bored out to 5.7 liters from the stock 5.4 liters, ported heads and some custom tuning by Eurocharged, the brutish Mercedes-Benz G 55 AMG in the image above is pushing no less than 620 hp and 741 Nm (547 lb ft) of torque... at all four wheels.

The result of these fantastic numbers is a 12.20 seconds time in the quarter mile, at 183 km/h (114 miles per hour), only slightly better than the previous car we reported on but enough to take the record of the world's fastest G 55 AMG in the quarter.
