Super Double Groan ; G Wagon




If money was no object I would be shipping one of these beauties in. Some may see a box on wheels. I see pure delight.Priced from $217,230 plus on-road and dealer costs, under the bonnet lies a supercharged V8s from the German car maker’s go-fast division — and once dwindling stocks of the now-discontinued C-Class-based CLC 200K coupes trickle out of showrooms, the last supercharged car to wear a Benz badge on sale in Australia. Developing 373kW and a massive 700Nm of torque from just over idle, the 5.5-litre engine propels the 2.5-tonne G55 from 0-100km/h in an impressive 5.5 seconds.Fuel use is officially 15.9L/100km and emissions are rated at 372g/km CO2, with the exhaust fed through to a pair of AMG-badged side extractors mounted in front of the 19-inch rear wheels. For the extra money, the G55 adds a more luxurious interior featuring front seats with heating and cooling, a TV tuner, suede-like Alcantara roof lining, and a firmed-up ride to handle the extra performance.
