Mercedes G65 AMG Rumored With Over 600-HP

There was a time when the Mercedes-Benz G-Class was the backbone of Western protection against the creeping threat of the Reds, and had nothing to do with chain-wearing Eurosnobs or those who brag onstage about their bullet wounds. Then again, nobody in West Germany tried to shove a twin-turbocharged V12 into one in order to pan-fry the Volksarmee even faster.

Hey, isn't this progress? The ADD-riddled engineers at AMG might be hard at work shoehorning the same 6.0-liter biturbo V12 from the S65 AMG into the G-Class: 612-horsepower and 737 lb-ft of torque might be enough for some people out there, but that's just what Mercedes hopes to find.

Mercedes hasn't made an official announcement on what would be dubbed the G65 AMG, presumably because of international weapons restrictions. But as for a name, "Thunderbrick," "Checkpoint Charlie's Revenge," or "Thor's Own Freakin' Nuclear-Powered Birth Mother" could suffice.
