2007 Weistec Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG - Fastest G55 in the World Home

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class doesn’t need to be fast to be cool, but extra horsepower doesn’t hurt, either, so when it comes to cool off-roaders, a G-Class in AMG guise is the R-134a of SUVs.

Have you ever met a really scary ex-con? I’m talking about the type of dude who’s missing an eye, but neglects wearing a patch because he doesn’t give a damn. Let’s call that guy “Moe”.
