Written by Akhil Dalvi

Over the past 55 years of operations, AMG has produced and developed some of the world’s most memorable performance machines. During this time, Mercedes-Benz’s iconic G-class has enjoyed a unique position in the AMG portfolio for over 20 years. Thanks to its cult status and off-road performance, the G-Class has been chosen by Mercedes-AMG to celebrate its 55th anniversary. Therefore, the brand has launched the special edition G 63 ‘Edition 55’ performance SUV that represents individuality and exclusivity.
