The first official photos of the 2013 Mercedes G63 AMG have been released by Mercedes-Benz USA just a few days after the world premiere of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz G-Class.

The AMG version of the facelifted Mercedes-Benz G-Class offers a bold front grille and the LED lights that you find on all models across the range. New side steps and fender flares have  also been included. You’ll note that it maintains the SLR-style side exhausts, which are actually pretty bad for off-roading, but insanely cool to look at as well as allowing you to clearly hear the exhaust noise in the cabin. Completing the exterior are red brake calipers and for the first time on a G-Class, 20-inch wheels.

The G63 AMG, shown in the photos, has a V8 biturbo engine (400 kW/544 hp and 760 Nm of torque(560 lb-ft)), which comes as standard with the ECO start-stop. The engine line-up is further expanded to include the G 65 AMG V12 biturbo engine (450 kW/612 hp and 1000 Nm of torque (737 lb-ft)), which will make it the most powerful production off-road vehicle in the world.

The 2013 Mercedes G63 AMG and G550 will go on sale in August of this year. Photos via MBPassion
