Pic Of The Week: G55 AMGs

It may not be the most artistic photograph in the world, POTW fans, but for us this one perfectly captures the lines and character of one (Two, surely? Ed.) of our favourite automotive sculptures. And on the eve of PH's imminent Sunday Service visit to Mercedes-Benz World, we reckon it deserves a run round the block in what is the closest PH gets to a weekly 'culture' spot...

More to the point, the hewn from granite 'Gelandewagen' from M-B is shortly to return to the UK with right hand drive, a fact we were reminded of by this image captured on location in Arjeplog, Sweden at the AMG Winter Sporting Academy. And then we thought, if we remind M-B how much PHers love these cars, they'll probably let us have a go in one. Is that so wrong?

Triple diff-locks, rugged body-on-frame build, no-nonsense styling and the guts to go-anywhere - it's just a shame we can't bring our picture to life with the rumbling V8 soundtrack of these two 507hp examples powered by AMG.

    Amazing cars. But did they copy the Land Rover Defender?

    I love G-Wagens. This thing kepps calling my name but I don't have the courage to take a near 20 year old car as a daily drive. Not alongside a 38 year old Bristol anyway.
