Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition revealed as V12 SUV's swansong

Aptly limited to just 65 examples worldwide, the Final Edition costs from £278,000 in Germany

Mercedes-Benz has revealed the Final Edition of the G65 AMG sports SUV, limited to just 65 units worldwide.

Costing from around £278,000 in Germany, the G65 Final Edition is more than three times the price of the entry-level G350d and double the price of the AMG G63.

It’s marked out on the outside by bronze trim, wheels and details, including 21in wheels finished in bronze. Inside, there’s exclusive Final Edition lettering on the grab handles and the bronze theme continues across the interior.

It’s the second of two recent special-edition G-Class cars to launch before the next-generation G comes along and the latest in a string of outlandish G-Class-based models, including the G500 4×4², G63 6×6 and Maybach G650 Landaulet.

Under the bonnet is the same V12 as in the standard G65, producing 621bhp and 737lb ft. It’s likely that the special edition will be offered in right-hand drive only, meaning the only examples to make it to the UK will be brought here by buyers.
