One automobile that has survived the test of time, unbelievably so, is the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon. Since it was originally conceived way back when, it's been doing some serious off-duty work and kicking ass.

Hell, I still remember before MBUSA decided to start officially importing them that a couple of independent dealers were bringing them to the U.S. for some SERIOUS prices. If I am not mistaken though, it seems like the G's days are numbered and it won't be around much longer.

I mean, really. Think about it. Not only did AMG go crazy with the 6x6 variant AND 4x4 variants, now we're seeing a G65 with a forced induction V12 good for over 620 horsepower and nearly 740 lb.-ft. of twist. This may just be the G's swan song.

If you want in on what is likely to be one of the last G-Wagons, get ready to pony up about $218,000. We're sure it can climb much higher than that depending on your specs.

Powered by a V12 bi-turbo engine, the G65 AMG delivers 621 hp and 738 lb-ft. of torque, with an estimated 0-60 mph acceleration in 5.3 seconds. The G-Class is the only off-road vehicle in its class to combine the electronic traction system 4ETS with a transfer case and three 100% differential locks.

The G-Class made its official debut in Fall 2002, and CY2014 sales of the G-Class were higher than ever in the U.S. with 3,090 units delivered to customers (1,428 G550 and 1,662 G63 AMG).
