Recently, Mercedes-AMG bid farewell to the G 65 with an exclusive Final Edition and earlier in the year Mercedes-Benz introduced designer editions for the G-Class (G-Wagon) to spice up the ageing off-roader.

The company has added three limited edition variants for the G-Class – G 350 d Limited Edition, G 350 d Professional Limited Edition and G 500 Limited Edition, before officially retiring it from the production line. Only 463 units will be built – in reference to the G-Class’s internal model series code – of each, limited edition variants will be made worldwide.

All three variants will receive an embossed Schöckl badge on the centre armrest with the “Schöckl proved since 1979” and “Limited Edition 1 of 463” lettering. “Limited Edition” emblems can also be found on the A-pillars and door sill (illuminated).

The G 350 d Limited Edition is finished in Designo Mocha Black Metallic paint job with brushed aluminium inserts on the front grille and outer protective strip as well as the Exterior Stainless Steel package and Chrome Package. It rides on 19-inch 5-spoke AMG lightweight alloy wheels painted in Titanium Grey.

Inside, the car is furnished in Saddle Brown Designo Nappa leather upholstery. Other creature comfort items include AMG Performance Steering Wheel, Harman Kardon Logic 7 surround sound system, powered sunroof and a range of advanced driving technologies.

Building on the G 350 d Limited Edition, the G 350 d Professional Limited Edition gets a China Blue paintwork, steel front bumper, protective grilles, front mud flaps, Professional Off-Road Package, roof rack and fabric upholstery. Positioned as a robust off-roader, this variant is for the hardcore outdoor enthusiast.

G 500 Limited Edition

Lastly, the G 500 Limited Edition embodies the character of an extroverted urbanite with its Designo Platinum Magno with Mango Black trims. The interior features exquisite Black Designo Nappa leather with white contrast stitching for understated luxury.

No changes were made to the mechanics – the G 350 d gets a 241 hp/600 Nm 3.0-litre V6 turbodiesel while the G 500 is powered by a 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 pushing out 415 hp and 610 Nm of twisting force.

Locally, you can purchase the Mercedes-AMG G 63 from Mercedes-Benz Malaysia for a cool RM1.18 million.
