Mercedes G55 AMG comes to UK

Mercedes brings the G-Wagen back to the UK. Two diesels and the mighty 493bhp G55, eye-watering prices

Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG

The Mercedes G-Wagen is coming back to the UK. Now dubbed the G-Class, it’s a return to right-hand drive sales for Merc’s monster off-roader after a decade away.
 
We’d certainly not blame you for thinking it an odd time to relaunch such a car here – a car sales market working its way out of a crisis seems unlikely to welcome a large, thirsty SUV with open arms, and that’s before you’ve seen the price.
 
There’ll be two passenger car options – the 218bhp G350 CDI diesel, costing £79,975, and the supercharged 493bhp G55 AMG petrol, which will set you back a mildly startling £114,975. It’ll also take you to 62mph in 5.5sec too, mind. A commercial option, the G300 CDI, will kick off G-Class sales at just shy of £58K.
 
The G has always been a bit of a cult car, though, and those wanting one are unlikely to be put off by paying Audi R8 Spyder money for one. Mirroring this is the fact that all G-Classes are available exclusively from Merc’s Specialist Products Division at Brooklands’ Mercedes-Benz World.
 
The G-Wagen is now over 30 years old, and over 200,000 have been sold since its 1979 debut.
