We have been left in a daze by the performance of the superlative Porsche Cayenne. Next, we've heard of the Land Rover Discovery getting the 400bhp supercharged Jaguar engine. Now prepare yourself for an absolute shock.
June 2004 will see the 25 year old Mercedes G-Wagen which is in my list of top 5 off-roaders of all time sporting the 476bhp SL55 AMG engine. Here's the link.
