Our spy photographers have managed to snap the first pictures of the AMG package for the Mercedes GL. Full details inside.

Our spy photographers have managed to snap the first pictures of the AMG package for the Mercedes GL.

Undergoing testing in Death Valley, the vehicle features a revised front bumper, AMG wheels, and a high performance braking system with cross-drilled rotors. While we can't see it, the package may also include a modified exhaust and a sportier suspension.

Despite the likelihood that this is simply an AMG package, speculation suggests this vechile could be an early prototype for an AMG version of the 2012 GL-Class. As our spies point out, the 2012 ML AMG has been spotted with dual exhaust pipes - instead of the traditional quad pipes - like the ones used on this GL. Combine that with the knowledge that the current model is a lame duck, and it seems odd that Mercedes would launch an AMG package this late in the game.

Regardless, stay tuned to WCF for more information when it becomes available.
