Mercedes-AMG G63 to be first new-gen G-Class in Oz

The upcoming, Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen will launch with the top-spec Mercedes-AMG G63 when it arrives in Australia. With production for Australia set to begin in April–June, the 2018 AMG G-Wagen will arrive in Aussie showrooms around June-July, followed by the G350 diesel later in the year. The upcoming G63 is expected to make use of the same 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine found other AMG variants, however its state of tune remains unclear.

Mark Webber: “I’ve always been a Porsche guy. Even when I had to pay for them myself.”

The GT2 RS launch in Portugal gave us a chance to catch up with Mark Webber, recently retired from front-line racing duties but now working in both development and as a brand ambassador for Porsche.
