We recently brought you news that the Mercedes G-Class will continue its production with Magna through 2016, and now we have a glimpse of what is in the works for the G-Class. Last summer, we saw a G55 with large air intakes testing in the desert. Today we have spy photos of a second prototype with similarly large air intakes undergoing winter weather testing around the Arctic. In addition to the AMG prototype was a standard Mercedes-Benz G550, likely for comparison sake.

The stealthy spy photogs over at Motor Authority offered up information about the sound of the engines in addition to taking revealing photos. Spy photographers confirmed that the prototype was far louder than the standard G55 AMG which has been dropped for the 2012 model year.

As always, as more news comes in on engine specifics, we will keep you posted.
