FAB Design has released an upgrade package tailored to the Mercedes-Benz G55 and G63 AMG.
Still a popular model among tuners, the G-Class has received some thorough revisions from FAB Design who developed a bespoke body made from composite and carbon fiber compatible with the G55 and G63 AMGs. The new visual enhancements include custom front and rear spoilers, revised side skirts along with bigger wheel arches with enough room to host a set of lightweight 23-inch wheels shod in 305/55 R23 tires.
FAB Design didn't release pics of the interior but they did say the cabin has been pampered with custom leather and Alcantara as well as carbon fiber accents. Interestingly, the spare wheel has been replaced by a special tire failure set in order to make room for an extra storage compartment featuring an illuminated hawk.
Lastly, power upgrades are also in tow as the G55 has been massaged to deliver 530 HP (390 kW) and 775 Nm (572 lb-ft) whereas the G63 was upgraded to 620 HP (456 kW) and 820 Nm (605 lb-ft).
Mansory's Sahara Edition G-Class Is an 828HP Desert Off-Roader
One of Mansory’s world debuts at the Geneva Motor Show is the muscled up Sahara Edition based on the Mercedes G63 AMG. Sporting a redesigned carbon body covered with camouflage decal, 22-inch XXL alloy wheels and a hand-applied leather interior, the rugged off-roader gets an impressive power output of 828hp.
Described by Mansory as the perfect desert off-roader, the Sahara Edition G-Class features significantly wider fenders and side skirts which expand the vehicle’s width by 40mm at the edges.
The front and rear have also been revised, with the Sahara Edition getting an off-road front bumper with under ride protection, while the rear bumper has been replaced by a customized carbon bumper.
Other exterior changes include the new headlights, additional indicator lights, as well as four additional lights mounted on the roof of the vehicle. Obviously, Mansory also offers a wide range of wheel designs and sizes ranging from 21 to 23 inches.
Inside, the customized G-Class features a completely redesigned dashboard and center console area, with the entire cabin being lined with marbled camouflage leather along with an embroidered stylized Falcon.
Mansory has also modified Mercedes-AMG’s twin-turbo V8 engine by installing racing components including pistons, connecting rods, big end bearings, crankshaft, crank, cylinder head and other parts.
Combined with the newly designed exhaust system, the modifications result in an increased power output of 828hp, while the maximum torque rises to an electronically limited 1,000Nm (737lb-ft). That’s 292hp and 240Nm (177lb-ft) more than the standard Mercedes G63 AMG.
