G-Wagen drives in!


And it's finally here! Mercedes-Benz has launched the G-Wagen in India. The car that makes it India is the AMG fettled G55 that comes with a 5.5-litre V8 under the hood. The car puts out a power of 507 bhp at 6100rpm. It comes with a torque figure of 71.4 kgm at 2750 rpm.

As for acceleration figures? Well the G-Wagen does weigh a whopping 2.5 tonnes, but this doesn't stop it from hitting the tonne in 5.5 seconds.

The car comes with permanent all-wheel drive, a 5-speed automatic gearbox, ESP and electronic traction control.

The Geländewagen (that's the long version of G-Wagen) costs a tidy sum indeed. If you want to drive this monster home, you need Rs 1.1 crore (ex-showroom, Mumbai). And believe it or not, 12 of these cars have already been sold!
