Boxy and Beautiful: 2004 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG

Tear up the urban jungle in this high-powered SUV!

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class was born from a rugged, off-road military truck, but today's versions of this legendary SUV are more likely to terrify unsuspecting sports cars than to traverse rugged terrain. That's especially the case when it comes to the AMG-tuned G-Class SUVs, which is what Dallas Motor Collection is offering up for sale with this lovely 2004 Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG.

Although the G-Wagen dates back to 1979 and the second-gen model went into production in 1990, the U.S. market didn't get the G-Class until 2002. At the time, the G55 AMG represented the pinnacle for this SUV's performance with a 354-horsepower, 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 under the hood allowing for acceleration times of 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds. The G-Class may have had a throwback design, but it was ahead of its time when it came to performance. And those side-mounted quadruple exhaust outlets leave no guesswork that this was the ultimate performance SUV of its time.

The best part about AMGs is opening the hood and seeing the small plaque on the engine cover, which was signed by the craftsman who hand built the engine. Mercedes-AMG continues this impressive trend today. As the G-Class continues to age, it's getting more difficult to find these in such great shape with low mileage. This particular G55 AMG shows just under 100,000 miles on the odometer, and the interior looks as clean as it did back in 2004.

This is a super-clean example of a 15-year-old G-Class, and it's hard to beat that classic look, luxurious interior and powerful engine. This G55 even comes with all of the original documentation and two key fobs. Don't miss your chance to own one of the fastest off-road SUVs ever created!
