Car of the day – Tuned 2010 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG Hamann 600 hp 1920×1080 HD
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG tuned by Hamann is one BAD machine. It not just looks simply fantastic, but under the hood you can find another simply fantastic thing. This AMG by Hamann is powered by a 5.4-liter V8 petrol engine which produces up to 600 hp (441 kW) and torque of 577 lbs-ft (782 Nm) at 3000-5200 rpm.
With all that power under its hood, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in about 5.1 seconds. It also can reach a top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph).
The Mercedes-Benz G class also known as the G-Wagen or Gelandewagen (meaning cross-country car), is a vehicle with four-wheel drive and falls in the class of a luxury SUV. It was conceived due to proposals for a vehicle suited for military purposes in the early part of the 1970s made by Shah Mohammed Raza Pahlavi from Iran, who is a major shareholder in the company. It was developed in collaboration with the Steyr-Daimler-Puch, an Austrian vehicle manufacturer. Manufacture of G class started in the year 1979 with 460 series models. It has undergone many changes since then. It is termed as the largest SUV produced by the Mercedes-Benz company.
Mercedes-Benz got a military contract for the G class in the later part of the 1970s and launched a civilian trim for the public in the year 1979. The G wagen was designed to be the most reliable, durable and rugged off road vehicle. This vehicle uses three completely locking differentials. In order to mark its 25th anniversary, in 2005, the Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG was relaunched as the G55 Kompressor also known as the G55K, receiving a power boost, with a 5.5-liter V8 which was supercharged and developed 469 hp and 516 lbs-ft of torque.
