Having previously brought you four sets of Mercedes-Benz ML-Class spy photos, today we were handed some photos of the AMG variant undergoing testing near the Nürburgring.

The new ML-Class most likely won’t get any longer front and rear overhangs and more importantly from a quick glance it appears the wheelbase doesn’t appear to be stretched either.

We suspect the reverse may be in order, with Mercedes likely to slightly downsize the M-Class’ dimensions in order to reduce weight to make the new model more efficient.

The AMG factor of this beast can be easily noticed thanks to its rather large disc brakes brakes.

Although it may still use the 6.2-litre V8 found in the current model, it may in fact have a big upgrade to the brand-new 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8 which puts out 400kW and 800Nm of torque.
