The new generation Mercedes G63 AMG has been unveiled before it arrives in showrooms later this year.
It looks almost identical to the 40-year-old original but is new from the ground up.
The big news is under the bonnet and in the cabin.

The new generation G63 is powered by Mercedes’ latest twin turbo 4.0-litre V8 (430kW/850Nm for the tech heads) and matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive.
With a blistering acceleration time of 0 to 100km/h in 4.5 seconds it should be enough to get away from pesky paparazzi.
However the target market for this car will likely be more interested in the upgrade to interior luxury, including a mega-widescreen dash borrowed from the latest Mercedes limousine, and new, softer leather sports seats.

The G Class was originally built as a military vehicle in the late 1970s but has become increasingly popular with the Hollywood elite and over the past decade.
Celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Justin Bieber have been photographed with Mercedes G Class SUVs in recent years.
