The legendary G-Class is on its way out, and Mercedes-Benz is bidding farewell with the G 65 Final Edition, limited to just 65 examples worldwide with a price tag of €310,233.
The exterior design of the Final Edition includes 21‑inch 5‑twin spoke light-alloy wheels in bronze, silver brake calipers and AMG Sport trim strips on the sides. There are additional bronze accents on the underride guard, bumpers, grille, mirrors, and spare wheel cover. Running boards and tailpipes are retained in matt black. Protective strips in high-gloss black complete the look.
Interiors get designo Exclusive package – black nappa leather with seat side bolsters in a carbon fibre pattern and topstitching in light brown. Carbon fibre trims with contrast stitching in bronze, the Edition lettering on the grab handle, floor mats with leather edging in light brown and topstitching in black round off the look. There is Seat Comfort package which includes climatized seats for driver and front passenger.
The G 65 packs a 6.0-litre V12 biturbo, producing 630 hp and 1000 Nm of torque @ 2300-4300 rpm, paired to an AMG Speedshift Plus 7G-Tronic automatic transmission, which sends power to the all four wheels.
The G 65 Final Edition accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.3 seconds and reaches a top speed of 230 km/h (electronically limited).
The G Class was originally introduced in 1979 and has the longest production run in the history of Mercedes-Benz. Like the entire model series, the G 65 Final Edition too will be produced in Graz, primarily in the hand-finishing section of the production facility.
Recently, the company announced that the production of the monstrous G 500 4×42 (G Class Squared) has come to an end, and can be ordered until the end of October. It packs a 422 hp 4.0 V8 biturbo.
Just when you think that “all good things must come to an end”, the next-generation G Class is expected to debut sometime next year. After all, an ending is always a beginning of something new isn’t it?
