Eric's Autos: 2019 Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG
A Corvette getting to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds is kind of meh at this point. A Mustang GT can almost do the same. It's just not that big of a deal anymore. Such speed has become common, and so, unremarkable.
If you want remarkable, there's the Benz G 63.
It also gets to 60 mph in about 3.7 seconds. Well, OK, 3.9 seconds, if you want to pick nits. But it does so carrying twice as much weight as a Corvette -- almost -- and standing nearly twice as high.
The G also goes off-road with the tenacity of one of those lizards you see scrambling up sheer rock walls.
There is a downside, though. You have to close the doors really hard. Otherwise they don't close.
What It Is
The G 63 is an ultra-rugged four-wheel-drive SUV that's also an extremely high-performance sports car packing almost 600 horsepower and more than 600 foot-pounds of twice-turbo'd V-8 torque.
It has three locking differentials (center, front and rear), an adjustable suspension and nearly 10 inches of ground clearance.
It's also an ultra-luxury Mercedes, fitted with pneumatic bolstering, multistage massaging seats, three-zone climate control and an exceptional Burmester surround-sound audio system.
If you want it all, here it is.
