Performmaster has just unveiled its latest Mercedes-AMG G63-based project and for those G-Class owners wanting to make a statement, it should do the trick.
The tuner dubs its modified G63 the ‘G805’ and started off work by developing a striking widebody kit. This new bodykit adds 10 mm to the track of the G63 and gives it an even more aggressive look, thanks in no small part to a front fascia that includes a distinctive grille with a Performmaster badge and a unique bumper with carbon fiber air intakes and a carbon fiber splitter.
Elsewhere, the G805 has been equipped with a distinctive hood with large air intakes and now sports carbon fiber wheel arch extensions. Other modifications include running boards with LED entry lights, a new rear bumper with carbon fiber parts, and a large carbon fiber spoiler stretching off from the roof.
Performmaster has also worked on the G-Class’ interior with additional Alcantara and leather trimmings.
Attention was then turned to the SUV’s performance. New turbochargers were added to the 4.0-liter V8 and an in-house PEC tuning module was also fitted. As a result, the G805 (as you might have guessed from its name) is now pumping out 805 hp and 752 lb-ft (1,020 Nm) of torque, pretty significant gains over the 585 hp and 627 lb-ft (850 Nm) of the stock model. The tuner quotes a 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 3.69 seconds and a top speed of 260 km/h (162 mph).
Pricing details haven’t been announced but all of Performmaster’s upgraded parts are TÜV approved in Germany.
