    • The G65 AMG with the M275 twin turbo V12 will not be coming to the United States

      This is not exactly surprising news. The V12 twin turbo powered G65 AMG will not make it stateside. There are several reasons for this and the most likely deciding factor was simply the cost. The G63 AMG will already be over $130,000 and the new M157 V8 twin turbo motor does not give up much to the older M275 V12. Considering the G65 would be over $200,000 the market would be incredibly limited. The Euro price tag in a direct conversion puts it at around $500,000. Nobody is paying that for a G-Wagon in the United States.
