After almost 30 years on the market, the current Mercedes-Benz G-Class is saying goodbye. And it’s doing so in style!

Believe it or not, the current Mercedes-Benz G-Class dates back to 1990, and Mercedes-Benz is finally preparing to launch the next-generation of this military-spec SUV ? only the third since it debuted in 1979.

While details on the all-new G-Class are unknown, the current model will be going out in style with the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition.

To set this apart from the standard V-12-powered G65, the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition gets some unique accents including the matte bronze trim found on the 21-inch wheels, bumpers, grille, mirror caps and spare tire cover. It also has silver brake calipers and matte black on the running boards and side pipes. The interior gets some exclusive accents, too, like the bronze and brown interior stitching, milled Final Edition grab handles and special floor mats.

Loaded up with the designo Exclusive package, this package also has an ultra-luxurious interior with black nappa leather, carbon fiber trim and a flat-bottomed AMG Performance steering wheel. Front passengers benefit from Mercedes’ multicontour, heated and cooled seats.

While the G-Class is designed for ultimate off-roading, the G65 is a performance beast with a 630-horsepower, 6.0-liter V-12 under the hood. Paired with the AMG seven-speed automatic transmission, the G65 can rocket from 0-60 in about five seconds.

Only 65 examples of the G65 Final Edition will be produced in total, of which less than half will be sold in the U.S. In Europe, the Mercedes-AMG G65 Final Edition will cost 310,233 euros, but the U.S. version will reportedly cost $252,690.
