Mercedes-Benz AMG GL: Spy shots!

Mercedes-Benz AMG GL

We found some nice spy shots of an upcoming Mercedes-Benz AMG GL. Enjoy!

Mercedes-Benz is preparing to give its GL sport-utility vehicle a serious performance makeover. Judging from recent spy shots of the 7-passenger SUV caught while testing in Death Valley, the full-size SUV could soon sport AMG GL63 badges as it gains performance hardware and a monster V-8 engine.

At first glance, you could mistake the heavy camouflage of this test mule as being the victim of crash-testing gone horribly wrong. But take a closer look, and you’ll spot large AMG-badged alloy wheels, heavy duty brakes and serious-looking cross-drilled rotors. It’s too soon to say for certain what the new front fascia might look like exactly, but a larger and more aggressive grille appears a certainty.
