If you're going to buy a $200,000 sports car like the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, what's the point in settling for a base model? Perhaps this is the thinking behind the company only selling the new, more powerful SLS AMG GT in the United States during the 2013 model year.
G63 AMG just a little too...agricultural for you? If so, then maybe this super-SUV is the truck for you. Mercedes has dropped its ubiquitous 5.5-liter, twin-turbo, 550 HP V8 into the mommy-mobile and called it the GL63 AMG.
The Mercedes-Benz Geländewagen, or G-Wagen, has been sold to civilian buyers since 1979. The AMG version debuted 20 years later, pairing the rugged overland vehicle with a 5.4-liter supercharged V8. A decade later, its successor, the 6.2-liter G63, was rumored to be on the chopping block. Nope.
We just saw the 2013 GL at the New York Auto Show, but it looks like Mercedes prematurely leaked three pictures of the upcoming AMG version before anyone was supposed to see it.

Figure sub-$100,000, making this the fancy fast Merc for plebes. Engine parts from the SLS AMG mean it's still plenty fast though.
Fourteen cylinders, 1,080 horsepower and six wheel drive. It's what happens when you let our friends loose on an abandoned airfield with a Nissan GT-R and Mercedes CLS 63 AMG.
The Mercedes C63 AMG wagon is the Medical Car of choice for the 2011 Formula One Championship and it has never looked, or for that matter, sounded better.
If there were any doubts about Mercedes-Benz's intent to keep the ML63 AMG in rotation, these photos should assuage the living crap out of them. A pre-production prototype was just spotted outside the Barnes & Noble in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, 20 miles west of the MB plant in Vance.
A Houston oil shipper used the complexity of world markets to make millions moving oil, buying huge homes, a fleet of 11 Mercedes and Frank Sinatra's 1957 Cadillac Eldorado. Now he's in jail, and the feds are auctioning his rides.
The Mercedes Benz SL65 AMG represents a proud pinnacle of German engineering whose heritage dates to the origins of the automobile. If he'd seen this one emblazoned with neon grille lights and pink badges, Gottlieb Daimler might have gone back to smithing flatware.
If glowing purple aliens landed in front of the drainage pipes our Range Rover Supercharged and Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG had just climbed, none of the guys in the lifted Jeep would have noticed. Nothing looks stranger than $230K screwing around in the dirt.
