Obnoxious people of the Internet, we bring you good news. Mercedes has released its online configurator for the new G 63, and we’re pleased to report it’s available in more than just shades of grey. There are also options. Not many, but enough to pile an extra £20,000 or so onto the £140,520 asking price, turning what was already a Very Expensive Car into an Obscenely Expensive Car.

But remember, this is an all-new G on an all-new platform, and therefore more deserving of its substantial price tag than its archaic predecessor. It gets the 4.0-litre biturbo V8, giving 577bhp (as much as the AMG GT R) and a nine-speed automatic gearbox. All-wheel drive with a 40/60 torque split front/rear means 0-62mph in 4.5 seconds and, with the AMG Driver’s Package, an autobahn-ready 149mph top speed.

And because you get all the same off-road tech’ as a standard G, the 63 ought to be able to effortlessly make its way across whatever kind of terrain you might have cause to cross – 22 inch alloys notwithstanding.

Ours is green with a bright interior. What about yours?
