Inside, black and red leather covers most of the cabin, while carbonfibre details can also be found, and a number of Edition 55 badges mark it out from the standard G63.

Mechanically, it’s unchanged from the regular G63, so it has a 430kW twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre petrol V8 that can propel it from 0-100km/h in 4.5sec and on to a top speed of 220km/h.

AMG began life in 1967 as a manufacturer of racing engines. The Affalterbach-based firm then started to branch out into producing modified road cars.

Mercedes-Benz signed a deal to develop and sell cars with it in 1993 before buying it outright in 2005.

Mercedes-AMG CEO Philipp Schiemer said: “The success story of Mercedes-AMG over the past 55 years is simply impressive.

“The same applies to the G-Class, which has remained true to itself for over four decades in the course of its unique career. Its long history and still genuine character makes it the perfect first well-wisher for me on our 55th birthday.”
