It's a law: when a vehicle turns 25, automakers must bring out a special edition, and the the G-class is no exception. The G was conceived in 1972 in a collaborative effort between Daimler-Benz and Steyr-Daimler-Puch, and born nine months later in Graz, Austria. Now it's thoroughly enjoying its mid-twenties, living the debaucherous lifestyle of a confirmed bachelor. Like so few SUVs, it's comfortable cruising down to your local strip mall, big pimpin' in the background of a Ludacris video, and crossing your local desert. The special edition G-55 AMG gets a 5.5 liter 476-hp supercharged V8, which should be ample for any "off-roading" you choose to pursue in your 108,228 euro Benzo.
