Priced into the stratosphere, guzzling petrol faster than Derricks can pump it, and shaped as if we’ve learned nothing of aerodynamics, the Mercedes-AMG G63 isn’t out to make friends.

And yet, people can’t seem to get enough of it. Drive one, and you’ll begin to understand why.

Those side exit pipes belch an unholy, addictive melody from twin-turbo V8 sheet music. The doors must be closed in anger and the lock clicks can be heard across a busy parking lot. A giant, flat windshield shows the G-Wagon’s operator a clear view of all beneath him.

If pickup trucks encourage bad parking jobs, then the G63 promotes nefarious road manners. Buy one, and you’ll be a Bond villain before the week is through.
