Each and every Mercedes-Benz G-Glass that passes through the hands of Mansory is wild and it is no different with this example. In fact, this might be one of the most striking we’ve seen from the famed German tuner and makes any stock G-Wagon seem certifiably uninspired.
Mansory refers to this G-Class as the ‘Desert Sand’ in reference to the sand-colored exterior finish. Not only is this color absolutely perfect for the Middle East but it’s not dissimilar to the sand color adorning many of the world’s most famous military vehicles, including the Humvee. Sure, this G-Class may lack a turret or machine guns but we’re sure it would scare away plenty of other motorists.
Beyond the paint scheme itself, this G 63 AMG is rocking a plethora of additional parts from Mansory. These start at the front end where the SUV’s fascia has been overhauled to include a new grille, carbon fiber bumper, revised LED daytime running lights, and new carbon fiber intake shrouds. Without question, the most dramatic alteration made to the front end is the new hood, made from lightweight forged carbon fiber and complemented by LED lights on the roof housed within a carbon shroud.
A set of Mansory’s all-new FS.15 forged wheels have also been fitted, measuring 24×10 at the front and 24×12.5 at the rear with rally-inspired aerodiscs. The tuner has also crafted new wheel arches for the G-Class as well as a set of aftermarket side steps. Among the key alterations made to the rear include a large rear spoiler mounted to the roof, a forged carbon spare wheel cover, and a new bumper.
As for the cabin, the person who commissioned this P900 opted to have it bathed in light brown leather across the seats, dashboard, floor mats, steering wheel, and transmission tunnel. It even features a ceiling-mounted engine start button.
No serious Mansory project would be complete with some performance upgrades so the tuner has modified the 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 to now deliver 900 hp and 885 lb-ft (1,200 Nm) of torque, enough to send the SUV to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.3 seconds and a limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h).
