Mercedes have planted the new 6.3 litre V8 from AMG into the humble ML SUV to create a monster of an off-roader to rival the Porsche Cayenne.
510bhp is a lot of power but a 0-60mph time under 5 seconds is still amazing when considering the 2.5 tonne weight of the W164 version ML.
The usual Mercedes gadgetry abounds in this top of the range ML. Adaptive damping, self levelling air suspension and computer controlled 4-wheel drive help keep the leviathan on the road.
If you fancy monumental power coupled with monumental size (and monumental thirst) then make a quick b-line for the monster Merc before cars such as this cease to exist.
