After years of Stateside consumers being denied the most vulgar AMG offering, Mercedes-Benz will introduce the G65 AMG, a twin-turbo V12 G-Wagen, to North America, starting in the 2016 model year.

Automotive News reports that the G65 will have an MSRP of roughly $250,000. The G65 is powered by a 604 horsepower V12 with a top speed limited to 143 mph. Look for the G65 to appear on a Kardashian-centric reality TV show shortly after launch.

    Will it be offered in brown and with a manual?

    It's kind of interesting that Magna Steyr builds both this and the Wrangler.

    Derp. They managed to create a vehicle that does nothing at all well. Not even accelerate, at least by the standards of 600-hp vehicles.

    That chromed bull bar is just hideous. I think it's flash enough in regular trim. I likes it because it's square. But if I want something square that gets poor MPG and has as more tasteful flair, I'll get an old RR LWB County.
