Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG spotted

We spotted the Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG on the stadium road. The G55 AMG was released from Bangalore's Merc showroom the day before.

The Benz G55 AMG is also called as the G-Wagen or Gelandewagen (it's official name!). The vehicle was actually built for the German armed forces, designed to take on the harshest of terrain and rugged roads. However, a civilian version was introduced in 1979 which also displayed the same level of ruggedness.

The Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG is said to be the fastest among the SUV segment in India and is priced at a jaw-dropping 1.10 Crore. The vehicle displays immense power on the tarmac when you let loose the beast within! It's got a 5.5-litre V8 engine where it's heart should be and has the might to pump out 507bhp at 6,1000rpm with 700Nm at 2,750rpm! The most interesting part is its ability to rocket from 0-100 (what?) in 5.5 seconds.

The AMG engineers have put their sweat in producing world-class engines, and this beast has the greatest of them. The G55 doesn’t have any direct competitors; however if you want one - you could compare it to the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Land Rover, Range Rover etc…
