Mercedes-Benz brings G55 AMG 79 Edition to Dubai, exclusive to the Middle East

By Auto News Log • December 17th, 2009

For all our Middle Eastern readers: haven’t you felt the need for something much more exclusive while navigating the sand dunes in your back yard? Well you can now rest assured as Mercedes-Benz has revealed the closest thing to a jewel-incrusted camel, the G55 AMG 79 Edition.

Named after the year the first G Class model entered production (1979, of course), the car will develop 507 HP and is exclusive to the Middle East region, given the big number of fans it has there, according to Mercedes. It will be painted in a custom “designo magno alanite grey” matte scheme, which will contrast with a big crash bar in the front, carbon-fiber-like side strips, a set of 19-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in a titanium finish and the chrome grilles for the indicators, taillights and underguard. On the inside, you’ll find designo leather seats finished in a combination of black and sand, carbon-fiber trim and a special logo, detailing the number of the model from the 79 which will be made.

Overall, if I were a Middle Eastern oil tycoon, this would definitely be great for my huge garage. You can check it out at the Dubai Motor Show, which is going on these days in the sunny emirate.
