Just last week we were talking about the Mercedes G-Wagen after the launch of the Force Gurkha and now they've gone ahead and launched the high performance version of the G-Class.
This is no ordinary utilitarian G-Class though, the G63 comes with a 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 engine plonked under the hood. This monster of an engine sends 536 bhp of power through a 7-speed automatic gearbox to all four wheels. Large brakes and even larger wheels to accomodate them are the main changes to the car.
While it comes with a very capable 4-wheel drive system, don't expect to go off-roading in this one though, the side mounted exhausts and the sports suspension tend to get in the way of that. If you're looking for brilliant straight line performance though, this will definitely deliver! The G-Class was also very recently face-lifted, so the interiors aren't nearly as crude as they used to be earlier.
The G63 starts at Rs 1.46 Crore, ex-showroom, Mumbai.
