There’s a new Mercedes-AMG G63 4x4²
The G with portal axles returns, this time with full-fat AMG power

There’s also 627lb ft of torque and permanent all-wheel-drive of course, but more importantly with this car, there are portal axles. Said axles allow the Squared to sit 351mm higher off the ground than a regular G-Class, scale 45-degree inclines, and wade through 910mm of water.
G-Class boss Toni Mäntele explains how this new Squared is the most customisable G-Class special edition they’ve ever built, and features a special green paintjob named after the Nürburgring.
